 “Steve… many thanks for helping us get on the right track. It feels so good to be communicating honestly and easily without the judgments. I can’t imagine how those things could have been expressed without your mediation sessions. It was so great how we were able to express years worth of built-up family issues. Even some that spanned generations. And we now talk about this way of communicating and are working it into practice. So, thank you so much for being available to help us with this!”

    Hi Steve,
    We spoke previously about some possible counseling for myself and my mother, but I need to know if you have understanding and experience with domestic violence issues and financial abuse as that goes with it. My problem is that my father, who I have cut contact with, tries to work through my mother and manipulates her to get to me, and he has done some very bad things that have really cost me in health and financial stability. I need you to understand the bigger picture of this type of thing and how abusers work to work with you as he is a master manipulator and I have seen others who are manipulators use NVC that way, instead of using it constructively. I think to prevent this you have to understand abusers and how they work. Tell me more about your level of understanding and experience in this area.

      Hello, Janet,
      I regret the six week delay in responding; a lot of work has come my way lately and I’m finally catching up on correspondence.

      So sorry to hear about the high level of manipulation and abuse you’ve been facing for so long from your father. It must be extremely difficult and painful at times to deal with it. Yes, I have a lot of first-hand experience with domestic violence and especially the manipulative mindset. Would be happy to share more about that with you via email so as to meet needs for confidentiality. If still interested in hearing more, please contact me directly at, or
      Thank you.
