    Opening my private practice has given me more opportunities to become involved in training     experiences which I greatly enjoy. I believe that a good training workshop needs to be engaging, informative and useful.

    I have worked a variety of groups both large and small. I have developed a significant amount of training material around trauma, trauma informed/trauma sensitive care, behavioral interventions as well as understanding trauma in children.     


    I train quarterly with pre- adoptive families on attachment, grief and loss and trauma through AdoptionStar and the A-OK Program.
