I have had the privilege of working with a variety of therapeutic programs, educational institutions, and professional partners throughout my career in mental health. Raising mental health awareness and education in our community and beyond continues to be one of my most important professional goals.
Educational Awareness and Custom Workshops
Custom program development began years ago, through Informed Families and Red Ribbon Week, and since then have expanded to include a wide range of mental health, well-being, and awareness topics. I work closely with educators and professional clients in determining needs, designing engaging and insightful presentations or workshops, and employing my expert facilitation skills in delivering the same. I work closely with professional organizations, schools, parents and the community at large with educational or other engagements. All lectures and workshops are strategically targeted for the specific needs of the audience.
