for COMMUNITIES

 

I love supporting parents and communities in their efforts to care for children with complex trauma!  I have taught workshops and spoken at conferences throughout the country, and regularly offer groups and workshops in my hometown of Austin, TX.  If you'd like to inquire about hosting a workshop in your area, or inviting me to speak at your conference or event, please email me for fee and travel details!
