1-on-1 Work

Grounded in the tools of nonviolent communication and mindful self-compassion, I will support you in:

  1. gaining an understanding of the obstacles you are facing in navigating a specific challenge,
  2. identifying one or more actions towards mitigating this challenge,
  3. taking away tools that will support you in relating to yourself and to the situation with more understanding and compassion.


Being self-compassionate is similar to tending a garden. You can’t read about it, you got to do the work. Cultivating self-compassion is an experiential process: it grows over time with practice.

Not all plants will grow in your local area. Not all self-compassion practices will resonate with you. Cultivation entails finding practices that will support you in building resilience to life’s stress.

I offer Dr Karen Bluth’s and Lorraine Hobb’s Mindful Self-Compassion for Teens (formerly known as Making Friends with Yourself). I also offer Kristin Neff’s and Chris Germer’s Mindful Self Compassion for adults and an adaptation for young adults.
