Tim is also well-versed in cooperative living. In 1991 he co-founded an intentional community, where he and his partner raised a family and continue to live. Tim loves the excitement and sense of connection available in well-functioning groups. And he enjoys helping groups reach this potential through effective collaborative decision-making.

Additional Information:
As I have diversified my work to cross disciplines, I am a member of multiple professional organizations, including the International Association of Facilitators, the National Coalition for Dialogue and Deliberation, and the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists. My practice is based in Santa Cruz, California.
