My passion is facilitating authentic communication groups which are based on 4 pillars: Nonviolent Communication, Internal Family Systems, Diversity, Equity & Anti-Oppression, and Authenticity in the here and now. Integrating these precious modalities is deeply meaningful for me.

For decades i was a founding partner of Leadership that Works, where we trained coaches and facilitators and supported leaders to share power and transform the culture.

Today I focus on working with small groups of people to develop relationships that they love and create the change they want to see in the world. 

I've written three books: Courageous Visions; Facilitating with Heart; and Coaching for Transformation. You can find them all on and you can read the first chapter of Facilitating with Heart for free here:


My passion is supporting social justice activists so that more people meet more needs and we create the world we have been longing for.


Connecting from the heart, I help folks create intentional relationships that are intimate, real, and impactful  


My vision is to see people from every nook and cranny of the world skilled in facilitating heart connection. I support NVC practitioners to develop organizations, mediate conflict, transform relationships, and support social change initiatives.
