More free to choose your path, outcomes, reactions & responses (and know the difference)

Be more aware of your own needs, joy, impact, power and affect in life & with loved ones

TESTIMONIALS:

“I’m so happy that I found Maren. I searched high and low trying to find someone with experience in NVC for children. I asked Maren to meet with me 1 on 1 to help in developing and integrating non violent communication methods for my staff. I She helped me in my professional life, and personal life as we worked through NVC methodology together. I would highly recommend her for business workshops, 1 on 1 counseling, or working with a family. She is diverse, kind, and an inspiring teacher.”

“All of 2013 I attended weekly sessions with someone else, but in just ONE session with Maren (Healing with Compassion), we got to dig out some serious layers and I understood the possible root causes of some issues that I’ve had for years (that never even came up with the other person)! …..and that was only after the first session!

Ladies & gentlemen, this woman is amazing. Not only she has fully gained my trust, but she knows exactly how to listen, ask the right questions and help you find your truth!

I am so lucky and blessed to have this woman help me work out my issues. My partner is starting sessions now too. I highly recommend Maren’s service to anyone who needs to figure out what is going on in his/her life! She can really help! Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”

“My kids and I learned by the sharing with and guidance by Maren over 4 summers. My experience is that Maren is able to be fully present, listening to the whole person, not just the words, and finds ways to clarify or make the connection we needed but just struggled to get to on our own.

She is able to use so many if her creative talents to flex to the uniqueness of each of us…as we each interact with and process our experiences differently.

This woman carries much wisdom and I highly recommend her.”
