Nurture your Capacity for Meaningful Human Connection

Help Make our World a More Conscious and Compassionate Place

Reclaim and love-up your most authentic self as you come together on calls, practice new communication strategies, enhance your emotional intelligence, and share your journey with like-minded others.

  • Practice deep empathy – coupled with strong, clear boundaries.
  • Cultivate both deep, meaningful connections – as well as strategic disconnection and disengagement, as needed.
  • Become powerful, influential, and confident – but also kind, gentle, and relational with yourself and others.

Loving ourselves and others is often easier said than done.

What if you could integrate all that you’ve learned, cut through the theories, and come up with the right words at the right time delivered in the most effective way?

What if you deeply trusted your way of being in the world and followed your inner promptings with confidence?

What if you had a regular community of openhearted learners for support on this journey?

Joining my personal and professional development community, means getting healthy communication tools for all relationships with ourselves and with others, at home and at work.

You are not alone!

Some Reviews from real people

I wanted to shore up and tidy my relational tool-box.

When I signed up, I felt as though my metaphorical relationship workbench was a total mess. Over the last year, I’ve learned to use a bunch of new tools, and even though it’s frustrating when I encounter a moment when I know a tool is needed and I can’t decipher which and quite how it works, I now have a community and a place to turn to for support and practical guidance.

See our Fall 2023 Schedule Here

You’ll get the most out of your membership by actively participating in our live calls. But, if the call times don’t work out for you or if you prefer learning on your own, you can instead enjoy access to recordings of all live sessions on your own time.

Let me ask you a few important questions:


Do you ever wake up at night ruminating about how something went and what you wish you’d said instead?


Do you long for more meaningful, deeper conversations with others? Are you tired of small talk, shop talk, and superficial connections?


Although you practice mindfulness, NVC, have been in therapy, read countless self-help books, you still get triggered and stuck and wonder what you’re missing?

If you answered ‘yes’ to any of the above questions, then I want you to know –

You’re Not Alone.

What if you had somewhere to turn to unpack and get insights into what’s really going on?

What if you had a place to talk through problems, get real-time feedback, figure out where you are getting stuck, and get new options for moving forward?

And, what if you didn’t have to do it alone, but instead with a community of warm, friendly and supportive fellow journeyers?

No more second guessing what you said or did.

Increase your self-trust, self-confidence, and inner peace.

Get the clarity and direction you need to know what exactly to focus on next to get where you want to go.

If we’ve just met …

You may be wondering what qualifies me to help you have cleaner, clearer, and more honest relationships with yourself and others.

As a teacher, writer, consultant and clinical psychologist, I have offered personal transformation, compassionate communication, and leadership development training and facilitation for over 20 years.

I grew up in spaces between cultures, always on the edges and holding opposites. I was born during Apartheid to white South African parents where my father worked as a diplomat upholding racist and patriarchal governmental policies while my mother actively protested them.

We lived in Malawi, Germany, and Beverly Hills, returning to South Africa annually to visit family.

As I became focused on fitting into other people’s needs, beliefs, cultural norms, and rules, I soon found that belonging everywhere also meant belonging nowhere.

My longing for connection, belonging, safety, and understanding lead me to the teachings and wisdom from multiple psychological, philosophical, and spiritual texts.

Now, my unique background as a global citizen with a Master’s Degree in Education and a Doctoral Degree in Clinical Psychology makes me uniquely able to help you bridge the gaps inside of you, between your heart, head, gut, and soul; and outside of you, bridging the gap between intentions and impact between yourself and others.
