What are your feelings telling you? This 4-week course will focus on working with emotions, particularly the ones that you’d rather not have! Experiential exercises and insights from current neurobiology will help you appreciate the information that emotions provide and how that information can help you express yourself more clearly. Coursework is based on Marshall Rosenberg’s Nonviolent Communication process, combined with research and exercises from Karla McLaren, Dr Dan Siegel, Sarah Peyton, and Jaak Panksepp. Prerequisite: Familiarity with Marshall Rosenberg’s book Nonviolent Communication: A Language of Life, or an introductory NVC class.

I am a psychologist in private practice, offering psychotherapy informed by nonviolent communication for children, teenagers, adults, and couples in Flagstaff and Prescott. I also offer parenting classes and training for organizations on how to use NVC in the workplace.  I’ve conducted workshops for the Arizona Psychological Association, Boys to Men Arizona, and West Yavapai Guidance Center Children’s Team.

I completed the 2007 Parent Peer Leadership Training Program sponsored by the Center for Nonviolent Communication and Bay NVC, taught by Inbal Kashtan, certified NVC trainer and author of “Parenting from the Heart.”  I have worked individually with certified NVC trainer Robert Gonzales, as well as attended NVC workshops with Sura Hart, Sylvia Haskvitz, Mary MacKenzie, and presentations by Marshall Rosenberg.
