When I met Marshall in 1996, I came to NVC with a background in teaching, mediation, languages and peace and justice activism. NVC changed my life. I have gained a sustaining confidence that I can bridge differences and conflicts with compassion. My relationship with myself is now mostly characterized by joy, peace and acceptance. Most important to me is that NVC continuously nourishes a hope that the caring world I want to live in is possible.
My experiences in Kabul, Syria, Jordan, El Salvador, Buenos Aires and most recently, Mexico, as well as the US. has confirmed for me the universal application of NVC principles and practices. I see myself as a resource to explore issues of reactivity, conflict, communication, collaboration and reconciliation. My Restoring Kinship work focuses on parents and their adult sons and daughters. I’m available by Skype and phone as well as in person.
