Speaking Engagements

I am working to build a kinder and more courageous world. I have been speaking and teaching about interpersonal neurobiology for over ten years. I have spoken in a variety of settings and run trainings for groups from 5 to 1200. I love doing keynotes, small group work, and multi-day trainings.

 

 love giving talks to therapists and groups who are interested in personal growth. I am working to build a kinder and more courageous world. I believe that kindness and curiosity, compassion and courage are natural states in humans. When we operate from other states, it is because we feel we are in danger. I am passionate about helping people learn to work with their neurobiology to improve their relationships with themselves, with each other and with the world. I empower therapists to work with their clients with more curiosity, creativity, and courage. I help people, who are on a growth path, to turn in with compassion and effectiveness. When we understand more about how the brain works to move from feeling to behavior, we get clearer on why we do things the way we do them.  When we understand how the brain changes, we get clearer on growth and healing. Clearer about how to serve our clients, clearer about our purpose, clearer with ourselves about what is really meaningful and clearer with each other about what we want in our relationships. I am here to help people move through the roadblocks they have to that clarity. And clear is kind.

 

I have been speaking and teaching about interpersonal neurobiology for over ten years. I have spoken in a variety of settings and run trainings for groups from 5 to 1200. I love doing keynotes, small group work, and multi day trainings. Each time I work with someone, we collaborate to make the engagement fit for their community and needs. Each is so personalized, it would be impossible to list all of the trainings I have done here, but here are some subjects I touch on regularly:

 

  • boundaries

  • interpersonal neurobiology

  • memory reconsolidation

  • trauma recovery

  • depth work and grief in therapy

  • therapeutic stance

  • using experiential work to accelerate change

  • grief avoidance

 

If you are looking for a speaker or a training for your organization, I'd be happy to speak with you about whether my voice and thinking would be right for your group. Reach out to me, so we can assess your needs together and talk about how I might be able to meet them.
