Trauma trainings without traumatizing your people.

I present complex biological and psychological ideas in plain language that is accessible for anyone.

No shock value

I've been to a number of trauma trainings during my years as a therapist. And each of them rely on shock value to get their point across. I make it my goal to teach about trauma without using these tactics. I make sure my trauma trainings are not only clear and concise, but actually engaging, use multimedia and interactive elements.

Complex ideas.
Clear language.

If you listen to the podcast, you know I can present complex ideas in plain language.  I do the same as a speaker, using my real life anecdotes from my work as a therapist in numerous settings.  You also know that I can present about trauma... without being traumatic.  I don't use specific details of traumatic events.  It's just not necessary.


Informative, fun & interactive

I don't just stand and talk.  I use many tools throughout the presentation to boost audience involvement.

live polls

Audiences can use their preferred devices to interact with polling software anonymously. The results are shown on a big screen immediately, creating a fun experience that is free of judgment.

mixed media

You'd be surprised at how effective a clip from the Office can be at showing defensive autonomic states.  Or how Ferris Bueller's Day Off can be the perfect example of vocal prosody.


I use both large group and small group discussion to elicit connection with audience members and real world application of ideas.

fun "experiments"

Activities to experience state shifts, like talking to a partner while the other is not allowed to show facial expression!
