"For me, NVC is a "connection dance." I help you and those in your community (inner parts, family members, work teams, etc) learn how to do the "connection dance" so that you can shift your intention and how you relate to yourself and the world around you ensuring everyone's needs are addressed in a way that makes life wonderful."
