    How I got to be so good at teaching communication

    I became interested in communication when I had my first child because I didn’t want to parent the way I had been parented and I realized healthy communication was a key to good parenting. (I wasn't a counselor then. In my first career, I was a Medical Lab Tech specializing in Microbiology.)

    I taught my first communication class about thirty years ago and further developed how to teach healthy communication after I earned degrees in Psychology and Counseling.

    The contents of my communication books have been honed and revised over many years of working with individuals and couples in workshops and my counseling private practice.

    My goal is always to present the how-to information clearly and simply so that it is easy to grasp and put into action.
