Chris Hartstein


Chris is a certified coach, marriage educator and parenting facilitator. She has over 150 hours of training in Nonviolent Communication and is pursuing a recognized role in the NVC community. Chris facilitates the Baltimore area workshop/practice group on a regular basis and strives to bring a peaceful, accepting honesty everywhere she goes.

From the first time she used the nonviolent communication model during a high stress situation, Chris realized the potential it has to transform relationships and create peace.  She is profoundly grateful for finding NVC at a time when she needed help with her relationship with her teen daughter.

Chris recently wrote a children’s book and created a doll to share the simple concepts of NVC to children and their parents.  These can be found at https://www.etsy.com/shop/AnInsideStory

In addition to NVC, Chris uses Byron Katie’s method of inquiry, the wisdom of the 12-Steps, meditation and spiritual traditions to bring understanding to the human drama.

Chris has been happily married to Marc for 30 years. They have two sons and a daughter.
