Compassionate Communication provides simple wisdom that supports our desire to be aware and accepting of our emotions and able to express them to others.

I am a psychologist in private practice, offering psychotherapy informed by nonviolent communication for children, teenagers, adults, and couples.

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.

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.
