New classes starting soon! Just in time for Holidays With The Family, and/or Apocalyptic Winter, The Sequel! Not that these are stressful for YOU in the least, but maybe you wanna check it out for a friend…? Geared for both beginners and continuers. Call or email to sign up!


Now deep in the second year of the COVID pandemic, and with the awareness that all of us live downstream from their experience, my heart goes out to our local medical and emergency workers. Knowing that empathy is a powerful healer, and that its absence is one of the root causes of our global crisis, I am volunteering my time to these frontliners, in hopes of bringing them some relief. If you are a medical, medical-adjacent, or other helping professional feeling the COVID strain, please feel free to sign up for a free 15-minute skilled listening session at the link below.

Other skilled practitioners are also welcome to contact me, if interested in joining this project.


Began Friday, May 1, 2020
Ended June 9, 2021. (It was great!)

The Coronavirus pandemic is intense. Would you like to talk truth to someone? To listen to another’s? To share your experience? To be heard, to be seen, to connect and be connected to? This group will be informed by NVC, at whatever level of understanding of NVC you bring, and will basically be an empathy circle, sharing our time and checking in on our hearts, bodies, minds, and souls. A free offering, donations appreciated.

UPDATE: Concluded on June 9, 2021, after 57 wonderful meetings!

Empathy Matters: The Nonviolent Communication (NVC) Model
 How do we stop conflict? How do we find peace? Tina Taylor of Stress Solutions LLC in Corvallis will introduce the basic tenets of Nonviolent Communication. The NVC model is based on the belief that our natural state is one of Empathy, in which the heart and mind are nonjudgmental. Developed in the 1960s by Dr. Marshall Rosenberg, it is world renowned as a transformational tool of communication, used for personal growth, conflict resolution, relationship healing, and community building.
