He is a Certified Trainer with the Center for Nonviolent Communication who offers communication and conflict resolution training to Businesses, Community Organizations, Faith-Based Communities, Youth Development Organizations, Hospitals, Individuals, and Families.

For 20 years Jared has explored ways to support deepening connection in and amongst communities. His experience includes workshop and retreat facilitation at conferences, camps, churches, and classrooms.
A former filmmaker and media literacy instructor as well as an early childhood educator, Jared discovered NVC in 2007 while working in private schools. Struck at how beneficial this practice was in helping repair disconnection amongst disparate groups within the school system he pursued further study with the intention of distributing this training more widely.

At the heart of the practice of Nonviolent Communication is the question, “how do we want to live with one another?” Jared enjoys exploring with communities ways to engage with that question. Collaboratively, and while modeling and practicing the form of Nonviolent Communication, he supports communities to invent and implement life-enriching whole systems, and practices for restorative justice. Jared offers trainings in concrete skills of nonviolence that lead to reconciliation with ourselves, with our loved ones and within and between our communities.
