Can answer any questions about communicating with friends, family, children, spouses. How to set proper boundaries, how to recognize when your boundaries are being crossed. How to communicate effectively, respectfully, and honestly. I can help you communicate in a healthy manner and give guidance on how to talk to your children (from birth and up). Good communication with your children also helps with disciplinary problems as well, so I can also help with child discipline. I can try to answer questions about work place communication, but it's not my specialty. I have a deep understanding of trying to have a relationship with people who suffer from OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder), NPD (Narcissistic Personality Disorder), people who suffer from fear-based decision making and families with a history of mental/psychological, physical, emotional and sexual abuse.

Experience in the area

Worked as a Kindergarten teacher for 3 years. I have over 10 years of experience in how to effectively communicate with friends, family, spouses, children. I've worked with a wide range of people (from children, to adolescents, to adults) on creating healthy boundaries and relationships with loved ones.

What do you like about this subject?

I find that most problems that people have can be attributed to communication problems. Even when you're dealing with an abusive spouse who has anger issues and gets physically violent, the root of that behavior stems from poor communication and/or never learning proper communication and how to release emotions and feelings in an appropriate manner.

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

New techniques and ways to communicate.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

I think that inner communication with yourself and communication with others is the key to living harmoniously in the world. To be an effective communicator, you need to understand what it means to really listen to what is being said (and sometimes what is not being said) and being careful to not misinterpret or make assumptions about what you've just heard.

Something controversial or provocative about this subject

Most people don't think they have a problem with their communication skills and sometimes they don't like it being pointed out that they need to change their approach.

Yes, I wasn't sure how you had originally approached him. It was either compassionately or it wasn't, but I wasn't clear on that.    After hearing more detail from you, it sounds like he's very cut off

Hello Gary,    Firstly, let me say I'm sorry for the situation you're in. It's never easy trying to navigate a friendship when things change and it's not working.    It sounds like your friend has a lot

Hi there,    I don't think there's anything wrong with taking Luis under your wing and treating him like a brother at all. You never know how much of a positive impact you're having on him. You could be

2016-01-17 should i give him a time limit to contact me:

Well it looks like even if he is just extremely shy, it's a turn off for you, so it's better that you move on. Even if he isn't shy and it's something else, out of simple respect he should have given you

2016-01-14 should i give him a time limit to contact me:

Hi Yanisha,    I think giving him until the 18th is a good idea. He might be REALLY shy and even though you've given him your number, he still might be too nervous to call. Let him work up the courage
