Mark J. Goodman

Mark J Goodman, MA, did his undergraduate work at Brown University and his graduate work in education at Tufts University. For a number of years he taught middle and high school English. In 1998 he went back to school and got his MA in Systems Counseling from The Leadership Institute of Seattle (LIOS) at Bastyr University.

He presently is a psychotherapist in private practice as well as an adjunct faculty member at LIOS. He also teaches workshops on Nonviolent Communication, meditation and mindfulness and writing and creativity in the community. As a former English teacher, a poet, a published writer and a lover of words, he believes in the power of language and its ability to transform our world.

As a Nonviolent Communication™ Certified Trainer he is passionate about finding different ways of meeting differences, whether the differences are between people, communities or nations, or whether the differences and conflicts exist in our very own hearts. His highest aspiration is to find ways of opening his heart as wide as possible and to heal the places within his heart still closed to love. And then to help others do the same.
