• Classes and Community Outreach

    Are you looking for someone to speak at a community or school event?  I offer a number of talks in the community.  A sample of my talk topics:

    Communicating with Kids. This one-hour talk includes 7+ techniques to improve your communication with young people. You will be able to participate in demonstrations and role-play to find the techniques that work best for you. This is a designed for parents/caregivers/teachers.

    Healthy Minds. This one-hour workshop covers the basics of two of the most common mental health diagnosis in our community – Depression and Anxiety. The goal is to understand more about these issues, explore techniques to reduce symptoms, present resources for self-help and explore the options for professional support when needed.

    Parent/Child Anxiety Management. This workshop is designed for families with anxious children. The goal of this one-hour workshop is for parents and children to work together to learn and begin to implement the various techniques introduced during the workshop.

    Introduction to TBRI Trust Based Relational Intervention, a parenting and caregiving model developed by Drs. Karyn Purvis and David Cross.

    TBRI is recognized as the key to therapeutic parenting for kiddos that have experienced trauma or neglect and for adoptive families. As an adopted parent I began to learn these techniques and found it to be much more effective parenting approach for my adopted kiddo AND for my biological children. I also offer comprehensive 25 hour TBRI group – check out my Group page for details.

    If you have a topic in mind that is not listed, please feel free to ask!  We can work together to tailor a talk for your specific organization.
