141: Terrie Lewine on Improve Your Relationships and Foster Connection

Dec 21

Terrie Lewine says, “I LOVE my work! It is a direct reflection of my commitment to life, to my community, to the people I know, and to those, I work with. My job is to stimulate confidence, passion, and skills for anyone to have the life they say they want.

Originally receiving my doctorate in chiropractic care my education includes a great deal of science, understanding how biochemistry, physiology, and neurology impact our capacity to relate well to each other. I have always been interested in transformation, even when I was doing bodywork. Yet I had to dig a bit deeper into what my true interest and skills lie and that is helping people to communicate in ways that create the satisfying relationships, families, and communities we all long for.

During a deep dive into studying communication and relationship strategies, I landed on Nonviolent Communication, developed by Marshall Rosenberg, which serves as the foundation of the work I offer, weaving in a variety of ideas and processes that will support the shifts my clients are looking to create.”
