Hopeless and overwhelmed. That's how many teachers and parents feel who work with kids with trauma.

Both inspiring and practical. That is the two-fold goal of every speaking engagement. If you would like to be equipped while being inspired, I would love to talk to you. 

Whether you have a small group of parents or a large in-service of teachers, I can address people where they have the greatest felt need with the kids they love.

  • Current culture
  • Religion and philosophy
  • Parent classes/conferences
