Neuroscience with Heart
                  ....wrapped in glitter & fun

Someone actually said that about me!  And she was RIGHT.  I take the complex science of Relational Neurosciences and translate it for helpers, healers, educators, and parents so it makes sense, is empowering, and can be used to support the world-changing work that they are doing (parenting, educating, healing, and helping).  

conference speaker

 

Keynotes, workshops, full-day sessions.  One-hour. Six-hours.  Let's talk about what you need, who your audience is, and how you want them to feel when your event is over.   "Robyn made this complex information make sense!" is hands-down the most common piece of feedback I get (well...after they tell me how much they love my glitter Doc Martens).  I teach the truth about the impact of trauma while keeping it inspiring.  Attendees leaves feeling energized and excited, not depressed or overwhelmed.  

 

Is your audience just learning about the impact of trauma?  I LOVE the newbies :) Are they ready to move on to 'now what?'  My passion is inspiring helpers, healers, and educators fully embrace 'the power of one.'  Or maybe you feel like I do- that it's time to move past 'trauma informed' and be honest that really we are just talking about being HUMAN informed.  Because regulated, connected kids (PEOPLE) who feel safe (and know what to do!!) behave well.   

professional training

 

After 15 years as a complex-trauma therapist specializing in working with adoptive families, my current heart-work is focused on nurturing and supportive the helpers, healers, educators, and parents who are in-the-trenches with the children who need us the most.  

  

          sometimes I teach like this ^.....

And when you're in the trenches, life is BUSY.  So there's lots of options!  Week-long retreats, one, two, or three day trainings, online book studies, introductory webinars, consultation... my hope is that there is something just for you at the time and financial investment you're ready to make! 

Upcoming!!!

^ This is me!!!  Right now I have slightly purple hair and I'm spending my free-time taking aerial silks classes.  I don't teach in workout clothes :) but I DO teach with the same playful and brave attitude I bring to the aerial studio.  I'm real, fun, and full of heart even while teaching about the brain!

I've been on!
