CNVC Certified Trainer

NVC changed my life! In 1995 I sat in and was transformed by my first NVC workshop. Since then these practices continue to deepen my capacity to show up in our unpredictable and chaotic world right now. This foundation has supported me in actively bringing compassionate presence in my personal relationships to working towards the world that many of us envision. Supporting the best of Humanity characteristics – some of these needs are empathy, compassionate presence, belonging, love, mutuality, …and many more! NVC is a consciousness that supports individual growth to social change, inviting us to continue to find ways to repair & build relationships and systems, and thrive.
