Private sessions are offered for couples who have already or are currently taking a class or workshop in Nonviolent Communication with me. Sessions are offered in person and over the phone. (For others who offer private sessions and have training in mindfulness and Nonviolent Communication, see the bottom of this page).
You and your partner have learned and practiced compassionate communication (NVC) and mindfulness. You have noticed changes in your relationship and hold the intention to continue these practices.
You notice that there are particular places you get stuck and would like more support in applying your skills and mindfulness to these places.
Working with LaShelle, guiding us and watching her guide others through tough issues has been incredibly helpful. She is so fluent and insightful – a wonderful model to learn from and emulate. Her warm and compassionate way of leading our group always creates the safety it takes to risk being vulnerable. As a result of LaShelle’s class our relationship has reached a new depth and intimacy and isn’t that what it’s all about?
I help you see subtle patterns of communicating and relating that can derail your relationship. I help you understand each other and use new tools to create more intimacy, collaboration, and trust in your relationship.
In a typical session I might ask you to begin a dialogue about something with which you are wanting clarity and connection. I would ask your permission to interrupt frequently so that I can keep you safe (no sense paying me to argue), keep us focused on one thing at a time, help you see when and how disconnect starts (which is often much earlier than you might think), and teach you a new way forward.
With a new understanding of yourselves and your relationship and new communication skills, you can begin to have relief and freedom from the conflicts that keep coming back.
