Healthy Boundaries – The Path to THRIVING

The Power to THRIVE


“Mind-blowingly helpful.”

“I feel a lot more connected, a lot more peaceful,
a lot less depressed.”

“It was a life-changing class.

“I learned to figure out what mattered to me.”

“Having [my] boundaries heard & respected was … a new experience.”

“[I participated virtually and] I still stay connected
with several people in the class.”



It’s our birthright to THRIVE, and yet most of us work way too hard to create what we’re hoping for, only to end up exhausted, with really unsatisfying results.

Did you know that most of our challenges in life and relationships come down to needing better boundaries?

The heart of thriving relationships and NVC is about setting healthy boundaries in ways that honor and support everyone’s thriving.

“Mind-blowingly helpful.
Learning how to have boundaries breaks down walls between you and others
so that you can have that connection. This class has been really beneficial for me.
I feel a lot more connected, a lot more peaceful, a lot less depressed.”

“It was a life-changing class.
I’d heard about boundaries, I thought I was good at it, and I really wasn’t.
I had lost myself … over a lifetime of addictive relationships, and spent a lot of time
worrying what other people were doing, what they thought of me, I was always other-oriented.
I learned to figure out what mattered to me, my own core values and core needs.

…[P]racticing how to set a very specific boundary with a former partner was HUGE
and so empowering, and then … having the boundary heard and respected
was just such a new experience for me.

I still stay connected with several people in the class.”
— Becky H., Schenectady, NY


I was surprised by how useful the class was. I didn’t think I needed so much help
with my own well-being and boundaries [but] I didn’t have a good understanding of
what boundaries were. [W]hen I realized how often … I was saying “yes” when
I really very fervently meant “no,” I realized that’s probably a pretty big boundary issue!

Taking the course gave me tools for looking inside of myself to get a feel for when I
wasn’t getting my own needs met, and I’ve been able to take these tools and skills with me.
It’s become second nature to notice what’s going on inside of my body, to notice things like
what stories I’m telling myself, and to notice the physiological effects when I’m shutting down
or wanting to avoid something, and [understand] what that’s telling me, and to
be able to make conscious choices about what to do, rather than just
fleeing, shutting down, or being accommodating.

I do feel it could benefit pretty much anyone to learn and apply those skills,
because when you realize that you matter, and you’re able to get your own needs met,
you can be a much more effective force in the world no matter what you’re doing.”
— Lori L., Washougal, WA, NVC Trainer and Professional Mediator


We covered so much and it’s of such great value.
I’m starting to see why I haven’t spoken up for myself as much as would benefit me.
The daily practice of [asking myself] what would support my thriving —
that’s wonderful, another concept that you brought up that I’ve never heard anyone say before.”
— Karen B., Vancouver, WA


“I’m SO glad I found this class, it’s just wonderful.
It opened this whole boundary thing up big time. I have some friends I’m hoping will take the class,
’cause we’re all dealing with boundaries. Go to Vika’s class, go, it’s a gift.”
