As a child, I was good at translating the babble of my younger brother for my frustrated parents. I was the conduit between their adult world and his pre-verbal needs. Maybe we had an innate secret language, but more likely, I was able to put myself in his shoes. This ability to empathize is what we all need in our relationships to make them work. For the last 30+ years I've been helping people develop more compassion for their partners, friends, and other important relationships, using empathy and curiosity as the major pathways for improved communication.
If you want to enhance your communication with important people in your life, I can help.
