Sharing information that is meaningful, fun, and engaging

I love being in front of people. The years performing music (not counting playing air guitar along with MTV) prepared me for the experiences of sharing my passion with others. As a mental health professional called to present, that intention has stayed the same: sharing what I value and believe in with a group of people.


I often present and conduct workshops related to: grief and bereavement, the benefit of teleplay therapy, and using video games and Minecraft in therapy.

A presentation or workshop with me might include:

  • Companies 

  • Schools  

  • Community Organizations

  • Special Interest Groups

  • Didactic lecture

  • Group interaction and engagement  

  • Practical problem solving and information implementation

  • Group consulting and collaboration 

  • Multimedia workshop
