Since 2007, I have been passionate about helping individuals, organizations, and communities build strong and sustaining relationships and Nonviolent Communication (NVC) has been integral to that work. For me, NVC is more than just a set of communication skills—it is a way of thinking about and perceiving the world. I enjoy not only helping others learn how to communicate using NVC, I also enjoy helping individuals and organizations use “NVC thought” to apply the principles of NVC to change the world around them.

I am the principal facilitator for the Compassionate Communication Practice Group in Dallas (“compassionate communication” is another name for NVC). I also conduct workshops related to NVC and work one-on-one with individuals, couples, and families.I am a Nonviolent Communication Certification Candidate, which means I have received 300+ hours of training. I have completed my certification and am awaiting referral to the CNVC (Center for Nonviolent Communication) for official recognition.

I also hold both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in sociology, with an additional master’s degree in psychology (humanistic), and I identify as a clinical sociologist. In this case “clinical,” is not related to "sickness" or "illness"; instead, it means I am a sociologist who actually "intervenes" to help people, using social theory, research methods, and practice-oriented skills. I strive to be an "agent of change" in the world and I am passionate about transmitting that ability to others, so that they can be an “agent of change" in their own world. The person-centered approach of NVC is fundamental to the work I do and the way I interact with people, both personally and professionally.
