My Approach

I am passionate about teaching great communication skills!

The kind of skills that will transform your relationships at work and at home.  In the workplace, I leverage my years of Business Analyst experience and I teach teams how to be both collaborative and relational as well as highly efficient.  In personal relationships, I show individuals ways to create the emotional safety needed to be open-hearted, honest, and truly loving.  My deepest passion is for safe, harmonious relationships and so when there is conflict, I support people to connect deeply with what matters most and arrive at mutually satisfying, lasting resolutions.

Whether it is a whole new approach to communication or strategic tweaks to your communication style, learning essential communication skills will improve the quality of your relationships.  Active listening, understanding the root causes of troubling behaviour, depersonalizing conflict, clarifying what is truly important, and making powerful requests are just some of the skills you will learn in working with me.  By learning and integrating compassionate, collaborative communication you too can create deeply satisfying relationships in all areas of your life.
