Loren Swift, MS, Certified Nonviolent Communication Trainer
“The work was absolutely transformative for me and the relationship I was anxious to improve. I learned to hold both myself and my partner with love and mutual respect, and we began to resolve our conflicts. As she taught me the process, Loren was kind, patient, positive and fully present on our calls. She also has a great sense of humor. I would highly recommend her to anyone who’s having difficulty communicating, and isn’t that all of us?” L.L., coaching client
Loren works with individuals, couples and families to facilitate mutual understanding, clarity and empathy with one another. When each person is heard and understood at this heart-felt level, strategies naturally arise that include everyone’s needs and concerns equally.
Loren holds a safe and nurturing container to explore and transform patterns that no longer serve while bringing astute clarity and practical steps for moving into caring, respectful, close relationships. Establishing deep connections with your innermost self and significant relationships becomes very accessible with her open-hearted guidance.
Loren brings over 25 years experience as a psychotherapist and over 40 years of her own deeply transformational inner work, spiritual practice and healing on all levels to her practice. She is a Nonviolent Communication (NVC) Certified Trainer with 12 years experience integrating and teaching NVC. Loren offers a heart-felt, streamlined and very natural approach to embodying key principles of NVC. Her work and presence are compassionate, insightful and refreshing. No previous experience with NVC is necessary to benefit from her deeply transformational approach.
“I never once felt anxious about bringing up situations between us – I had a sense of ease and trust knowing that whatever I needed to say was going to heard in a new way. Going through the process of self-connection then expressing what truly was mattering to me created a softness between us.” S.H., family coaching client

Comments from participants in previous family retreats:
“I loved the ease of your presence during the retreat. I loved how there was a flow created by checking in with us and seeing what way to navigate the retreat. Support and inclusion are important to me and I felt that. I thought you were wonderful with my sisters and me. You tapped into what really mattered to us and allowed it to happen. Thank you again.” — S.H.
“For me the weekend came with ease. I never once felt anxious about bringing up situations between us – I had a sense of ease and trust knowing that whatever I needed to say was going to heard in a new way. Going through the process of self-connection then expressing what truly was mattering to me created a softness between us.” — E.G.
“What I loved best about our work together is knowing that we all have choice to have so much more ease in our lives with ourselves and our interactions with others by knowing how to connect to our life qualities and empathizing with others by guessing what life quality is important to them in this situation. I loved hearing the anxiousness in my sisters’ voices turn to assurance, bodies soften and a greater sense of courage and ease be present in them.” — M.S.
“I feel so happy, excited, appreciative, honored that it all came together to have this weekend. Thank you again to all of you for being a part of my life and my family now.” — G.R.
