I am passionate about educating mental health professionals about trauma-informed therapy and the positive impact it can have on clients. This way of working sheds light on seemingly intractable cases and stuck symptoms.

I teach and consult on the following subjects and themes:

Understanding Difficult Symptoms and Implementing Cohesive Treatment Plans and Effective Interventions:

For Clients Who Struggle With:

  • Anxiety and/or Panic Attacks
  • Relationship/Intimacy Problems
  • Chronic Stress or Life Chaos
  • Overwhelming Emotions
  • Unresolved Grief
  • Painful Indecision/Self-Doubt
  • Emotional Numbness
  • Addiction
  • Low Self-Esteem
  • Disassociation
  • Loneliness/Isolation

Understanding the Impact of Trauma and Neglect

For Clients Who Have Experienced:

  • Attachment Failure / Insecure Attachment
  • Intense History of Neglect and/or Abuse
  • Divorce and Family Separation
  • Traumatic Loss
  • Medical Trauma
  • Sexual Assault
  • Domestic Violence
  • Criminal or Community Violence
  • Displacement
  • Exposure to War and/or Natural Disaster

Trainings, workshops and presentations can vary in length. Usually, a training or presentation that is between one and a half to three hours long can be effective, depending on the topic.

Contact me to book a training, a talk, or a consultation for your particular group. I would be happy to discuss your group’s goals/needs.
