I am a Communication & Leadership Coach.

My work offers a rich exploration of how our minds & hearts work, naturally catalyzing a more conscious, empowered, joyful way of living! 

I support my clients to become more mindful, process their inner experience, express themselves with honesty, align with their unique purpose, build mutually empowering relationships and take meaningful actions to create positive change in service of all life.  

What I do is who I am.

I am a Certified Trainer with the Center for Nonviolent Communication and Northwest Compassionate Communication; adventurous world traveler, Spanish speaker, singer-songwriter, nature lover and lifelong learner. 

I began studying Nonviolent Communication (NVC) intensively in early 2013, joined the Cultural Catalyst Network later that year, apprenticed with CNVC Certified Trainer & Assessor Karl Steyaert throughout 2014, and completed my CNVC Trainer Certification in 2017. I am a 2015 graduate of both the Empathic Coaching Program and the BayNVC Leadership Program, and I have been an Assistant Trainer with the BayNVC Leadership Program since 2016. I have a BA in Sociology & Spanish from the University of Washington, and am certified in Permaculture Design

Sharing this work is my deepest passion. 

I weave together concepts from a variety of different frameworks to gently push each of my clients toward their growth edge:

Nonviolent Communication (NVC)
Empathic Coaching
Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP)
Mindfulness Meditation
Biocognitive Theory
The Pathwork
Core Energetics 
Attachment Theory
The Work of Byron Katie
Restorative Circles & more...

 

It is truly my pleasure to help you step into your most authentic, vibrant self.

With gratitude, Erin
