what I do




Do you communicate with others on a daily basis?  Would you like to learn how to communicate better with those around you and be effective in that communication?


We converse with others every day.  Many times the difference between getting your point across effectively and not is the difference between being understood and not being understood. Should certain types of information be delivered personally and not through an email or a text?  What's the best way to have an important conversation with your spouse or significant other and have it come to resolution? These and many other topics can be covered in our discussions.


Please forward this to someone you know who may benefit from its content.

Service Spotlight: Communication Training


Communication involves learning not only how to speak clearly and effectively but also learning how to listen effectively.  We are on such a fast pace in this world that we rarely take the time to stop and truly listen to those around us and what they have to say.  We tend to focus on how to respond to that person so much that we don't absorb the information being given to us first.


Through communication training I can help you to exchange information better with others through some basic exercises that need to be practiced in order for the process to work.  I can assist you in developing those skills to a level where you are comfortable in communicating in a variety of settings.  Relaxation exercises can be explored to allow you to calm down and focus before a big speech and/or simple ways to get more out of the conversations you have every day. 


This training is a great gift to give to those preparing for marriage and a new life together.  I include a large amount of this information in the pre-marital program that I offer.  It is also a wonderful gift to yourself if you feel that you struggle in this area.  Even if you have been through some type of communication training before or have read books on the topic, reminders of how to continue to develop this all-important skill is priceless.


Come join me on a journey to better communication.
