Master Trainer - Love Smart Cards USA
Katrina Vaillancourt is passionate about compassion and the teachings of Nonviolent Communication™ (NVC). Katrina is a Soul Coherence Coach, who specializes in supporting evolutionary relationships, and deep dive personal transformation work, empowering her clients with personal and relationship growth tools such as NVC, Breathwork, Journaling practices, Compassionate Inquiry, Inner Child Work, Relationship Mediation, Intra-Mediation and Role-Play dialogues. She is also an artist and creator of Love Smart Cards.
She initially created the Love Smart Cards in 2008 as a tool to support her own path of learning Compassionate Communication (NVC) and cultivating character development, while training her son in these same skills, starting when he was 10. The cards are an educational and practical application tool that aids in the development of emotional intelligence skills such as empathy, gratitude, conflict resolution and character building.
Katrina has spent much of the last decade focused on the practice of Nonviolent Communication in relationships, community and in the workplace. She has led workshops for organizations such the Earth Guardians, the Pachamama Alliance, and the Patrick McCollum Foundation for Peace, bringing her teachings to team building and peace building projects. Through classes, workshops, presentations at expos and festivals, and private coaching, and mediation, she has reached hundreds of couples, individuals and parent/child relationships.
Katrina helps people clear the cobwebs of old hurts and unconscious self-sabotaging conditioning, coaching her clients in critical relationship skills along the way, and empowering them to enjoy an ever-deepening and liberating quality of love and connections that can thrive for a lifetime.
Her greatest passion is to make these teachings easily accessible – especially to families, as families create the foundation for a healthy society and a healthy world. Her journey with the Love Smart Cards gives her hope that any parent/child or romantic relationship, can access and maintain a thriving and everlasting love in which freedom and security are honored and held in the balance.
"This experience with Katrina really touched the heart, in a calm and gentle way. It's rare to see someone create a space that allows sharing, in a respectful and empathetic way, while simultaneously being playful. It's rare, yet it did happen. She helped me be ME for this short moment in time. Thank you Katrina, for the time, knowledge and your presence - it was the highlight of my week, for sure. I look forward to any initiatives related to your Heart Medicine workshop :-)" - Lukazs
