Communication Skills

As an educator in Communication Skills for Couples for Kaiser Permanente, a student and practitioner of Non-Violent Communications, and communication styles from a variety of lenses, Valerie brings a wealth of tools to help communicate effectively, be a better listener, understand needs and expectations, explore assumptions, and better express one’s self. Active listening skills and  identifying listening blocks can provide basic building blocks to help deeper communication and more intimate, safe sharing in relationship.

While relationships often require a tops down (communication skills) and bottoms up (depth oriented look at underlying thoughts and feelings), many of us lack good communication skills that can support an environment of safety, compassion, and care for the other.
