Have the Freedom to be Yourself
While Creating Strong, Connected Relationships

You’ve read many books and tried many programs. Why has nothing worked?

If you’re anything like me, you’ve tried a lot of things. A quick Google search generates a wealth of information, ideas, and strategies for changing your relationships.


Every isolated strategy gets you only so far.

It either fizzles out or leaves you hanging with no idea what to do next.

For some reason, nothing really works for lasting change no matter how hard you are trying.

After suffering disappointment after disappointment, you may feel alone and confused as to why these trainings, strategies, and systems seem to help other relationships, but not yours. You might wonder…

What am I doing wrong?

What am I missing?

Well, let me ask you this:

Do you want to control others or connect with them?

Where does it all go wrong? 

Reactivity and Defensiveness

Relational landscapes have changed.

We used to think that judging, punishing, and coercing people was the best way to get what we want. We know so much better now. Strategies that worked generations ago, no longer apply in the world we currently live in.

If you don’t have a reliable roadmap, you will change course often, continue feeling lost and never actually arrive anywhere.

You need an updated map for new relationship territories. 

Self-Doubt and Self-Silencing

We grasp at any quick fix we can.

From changing our beliefs to acts of self-care, then maybe digging into family history or changing the way we speak. Sometimes you need to stick with a strategy over the long-term before it works.

This course will help you know which ones to stick with and which ones to change up!

You need to update and trust your Internal GPS.

Blaming and Shaming

You can’t just think your way out of relationship problems.

It’s not enough to simply focus on positive thoughts and gratitude. Although you’ve tried to make “fixes” others have suggested, nothing seems to really change.

Let’s address the root causes of continued issues and alleviate painful symptoms.

Go deeper than symptom management.

Connection, Clarity, and Ease –
in Your Relationships at Home and Work

What people are saying …

Learning to differentiate feelings (and that there are no good or bad feelings, just feelings) and strategies/needs was powerful for me. I am practicing pulling those apart every day. The cheat sheets were most useful for me because they gave me a tangible way to remember what we talked about and then put the work into practice.


– L.S.

This course was grounded in compassionate communication principles and opened up a whole world of rich possibilities for naming feelings and needs, using them as the basis for communicating more effectively and lovingly.


-Ricka K.

Yvette has a wisdom that flows naturally through her words and is easily digestible. She allows space for authentic compassion to be experienced in oneself and others. When this happens soulful growth is recognized both internally and externally.


-Shauna T.

Over the past four years, I have worked with Yvette in one-on-one and group settings. She purposefully creates an extremely safe environment and culture where everyone’s feelings and needs are honored. Her facilitation and counseling skills are phenomenal, she is highly skilled, deeply empathic, very patient, exceptionally compassionate, and extremely insightful.

It’s not your fault.

The bottom line is…

… many of us have been trying to improve our relationships using the very tools that pull us back in old patterns.

You’ve done your best attempt to shift in the direction of your heart’s desires. The fact that you are still at it, speaks to your sheer will, determination, tenacity, and deep knowing that there is a better way to have relationships with ourselves, others, and our communities.

If you’re anything like me, there are days where you’re just exhausted, disheartened, tired, and ready to give up.

It would be easy to just settle into familiar, unsatisfying relationships and give up your hope of change and transformation. You may wonder if you will ever be seen, heard, and valued for who you really are, or get the intimacy, ease, and freedom to be your authentic self.

Please don’t give up yet.

It is possible to create the understanding, partnership, and ease that you are longing for, and it’s simpler than you think!

I’ll put the whole puzzle together for you, so that you you can: 

  • Know exactly where you are, and what your next steps are (Get your new roadmap now!)
  • Trust your internal wisdom and know what direction is right for you next (Let’s update your internal GPS)
  • Concentrate your energies on the most meaningful changes
  • Relax into feelings and conflicts that you used to dread and avoid

There is a better way.

Bridging differences has been my life’s work.

I will share the insights and mistakes I’ve made on my own journey, and offer these with the confidence and hope that they will bring you a sense of comfort, community, clarity and hope
in your own journeying towards living in more alignment with your deep sense of self.

Like with anything in life, you get out of it what you put into it. That being said, course participants have reported feeling clearer, more confident, and more openhearted with themselves and others. In addition, they’ve shared that they have more inner peace, can more easily see what is in their lane versus someone else’s lane, and that they’re able to live into their values with more ease.
