BRAVE Speaking with a Purpose!

Before I was an author, I was a speaker! All my years of speaking in classrooms, colleges, conferences, retreats, and churches have now taken on a new focus and mission. My bent toward approaching subjects from unique perspectives, with whimsical storytelling, and humor are still mainstays of my motivational speaking with an added dose of BRAVE vulnerability. My focus includes several different areas: Early Childhood Developmental Trauma, Insecure Attachment, Dissociative Disorders, and Psychotherapy (from a client's perspective, including EMDR). These topics are embedded in all of my speaking venues.
