Experience a better life.

As the speaker and facilitator, David B. Alexander brings his experience as a psychotherapist, consultant, partner, and parent, as well as integrating a lifelong practice and teaching of meditation and Tai Chi Chuan.

David's therapy work is focused on individuals and couples, as well as organizational therapy for leaders and their teams, leading to connection, well-being, and achieving more of one's goals in life. He teaches communication skills especially to couples coming to improve their relationships.

The various presentations about and discussions of communication, especially Nonviolent Communication (NVC), are dedicated to making life better for group participants, through better understanding of self and other and through better communication choices

These events are enriching, safe opportunities for learning how to deepen relationships of all kinds through better communication, including through authenticity towards oneself, achieving more often the results we desire. As a psychotherapist, David has seen the value of these principles, and has guided numerous couples and individuals to improve the quality of their communication and their relationships.

Topics for Nonviolent Communication include:

  • Compassion vs. Labeling and Judgment
  • Observation vs. Diagnosis and Evaluation
  • Listening With Empathy
  • Feelings, Needs, and Requests
  • Expressing Anger's Core
  • Protection vs. Punishment
  • Liberation From Internal Programming

Other meetings will have various specific topics. Past topics have included Solving the Roots of Conflict; Having the Difficult Conversation; and Communication in the Workplace.

Lastly, we will also be having unscripted meetings open to any issue of communication that participants wish to bring up.



After presentations, there is always time for questions and answers as well as discussion; some meetings are facilitated discussion only

Note: if any attendee does not wish to join in a discussion, but prefers to observe and absorb, that preference will be respected.

Events take place online via Zoom, and may in the future also take place in person, in Long Island or Manhattan at announced addresses.

Webinars can be joined via ordinary phone, but for a full experience use of a computer will allow observing other attendees and those who are speaking. Attendees who do not wish to be seen can disable their video, and those who do not wish to speak (or if there is background noise in the attendee's area) can mute their microphone so as to hear the webinar discussion without speaking.

You can call David B. Alexander at (718) 229-2609, if you have any questions.

    There will be about 1/2 hour of presentation, after which we will engage in conversation regarding any situations the participants wish to discuss. If participants do not have such questions to discuss, I as the facilitator will present various scenarios to examine together.

    As someone who has raised two children who are now in their 30s, I understand the stresses and the joys of the experience, and the topic will be carefully infused with a good dose of ironic humor, as needed. Whether children are very young, or are themselves adults, the parent / child relationship is a special one of strong connection.

    Those who wish to observe are also welcome. Participation can be an enjoyable experience, but is not required.

    “I had both the privilege and good fortune to first connect with David in 2019. In retaining his services, I found him to be highly professional, insightful, authentic, patient, and kind. I greatly appreciated his direct approach, thoughtful consideration, and engaging manner.

    As it turns out, the feedback and insight he provided me turned out to be absolutely spot on, over the course of time. It is a pleasure to recommend David as a pragmatic, discerning, and intuitive counselor, therapist, and leader.”

    “David recently did a presentation on non-violent communication on behalf of one of my clients, an HR firm. To say that he hit it out of the ballpark would be an understatement. He was engaging, used real-world scenarios and examples and provided the attendees with actionable take-aways to help them navigate the sometimes-tricky world of intergenerational workplace communication.

    David is genuine and empathetic. Even during a brief training, his message resonated with this audience of business owners, HR managers and C-suite executives. We received extremely positive feedback from the attendees and highly recommend David for consulting and training in this area.”

    “David is a superbly gifted Organizational Therapist who is able to help guide entrepreneurs in growing their businesses while navigating the highly unpredictable environment that we find ourselves in.

    Unlike many psychotherapists he has a long-established track record of working and advising in the real world, which allows him to help his clients deal with real world problem solving. If you have an established business which is coping with a changing times, or an entrepreneur looking to unlock growth and opportunities I would highly recommend David as a consultant.”
