Your next conference, workshop, training or event!

"Thank you again for an AWESOME conference. Hands down, Robyn is the best workshop presenter I’ve ever seen. She was knowledgeable, engaging and hopeful. Everything she said resonated. I left feeling inspired to be the best parent I can be.” 

   ~Conference Organizer (& adoptive parent)

From Conference Attendees

"Even as an adult with complex trauma, I have never felt so understood. A part of me wishes I could be a kid again in the hands of people that have attended your conference and really want to help them!" 

"Your style took complex subject matter and made it understandable." 

"Thank YOU for being such a great speaker! We are thrilled  beyond words with the content!" 

"This is fantastic. It has given me hope, understanding and practical things to do."  

 

“Robyn is truly the best presenter I’ve ever experienced.”

“Robyn was excellent - she spoke to my soul!”

Having a love for event planning and a history of organizing conferences, retreats, and workshops, I understand BOTH sides of the event- planning & presenting.  My goal is to make managing your speaker (ME!!!) the LEAST stressful part of your event!

I've had the honor of speaking as an opening and closing keynote; single-workshop events between three and 12 hours (two days); trainings for therapy organizations, colleges, and school districts.  My audiences are helpers, healers, educators, and parents.  I love to speak, teach, and train on the impact of trauma on the developing brain, resilience, and the power of one person in a child's life- no matter how brief.  I teach educators and therapists how to use movement and the body to support regulation and healing.  I have a unique ability to teach the relational neurosciences (and how they relate to helpers, healers, educators, and parents) in an understandable, relatable, and practical manner.   I teach with heart and compassion.  We will laugh a lot!  Audiences report leaving inspired - and not overwhelmed!

“Robyn was the keynote speaker for our Child Welfare Conference in 2017. She provided an engaging keynote about the importance of relationships in building resilience with clients. Robyn explained core concepts related to neuroscience using humor, relatable stories and cutting edge research. She reminded us all about how important relationships are to fostering resilience.  Robyn is a role model for other therapists, a reassuring presence for parents and one of my favorite speakers.”

"I’ve had the opportunity to work with Robyn twice for Gladney University presentations (and have traveled to attend many of her other trainings). Our training audience is made up of adoptive parents, social workers, therapists, CPS workers, and teachers. Robyn is able to connect and impact each audience member and create felt safety in the training setting.  Robyn has the audience laughing, safely exploring and moving during her trainings. Robyn's flexibility, warmth and dynamic teaching methods is why she is a favorite at Gladney University."

"I reached out to Robyn to see if she would present at our local play therapy chapter's winter workshop and we were so honored and lucky we secured her for this event. This workshop is the biggest of the year with it being an all day event and we like to bring in speakers who can add to our play therapy tool kit. Our local play therapy chapter has a lot of Registered Play Therapists so it is important we find speakers who can provide advanced workshop material. Robyn was easy to communicate with regarding scheduling and her needs leading up to the big workshop. Not only was she organized but she was a DYNAMIC speaker. During the workshop attendees were engaged and we got wonderful feedback about the presentation. You do not want to miss out on hearing Robyn speak."

"Hosting a relatable trainer like Robyn is a real breath of fresh air. Her material is cutting edge but her presentation style is so comforting and down to earth. She’s such a joy to work with; we can’t get enough!"

~Kendra Morris-Jacobson, MA, Director of Oregon Post Adoption Resource Center (ORPARC)

"Robyn is a phenomenal speaker. These topics can be heavy but Robyn brings a sense of hope and energy that leaves the audience empowered to do better because we know better. Working with Robyn was easy from start to finish and we all enjoyed working with her during the conference."

"The Auburn University Social Work program invited Robyn to be the featured speaker at our Annual Social Work Symposium.  Robyn has a natural ability to connect with a large audience and explain complex trauma in a manner that both conveys the depth of the topic and is easy to understand. She also provides concrete strategies that clinicians can apply in their own practices. She works quickly and made the scheduling and coordination of her talk efficient and easy!"
