I am an engaging, humorous, and compelling presenter who conveys scientific concepts in common sense language along with easy-to-learn skills.
My workshops are available to mental health professionals as well as educational, business, community, and faith-based groups. Workshops cover an array of topics, including:

Mastering the Use of Self-Hypnosis: Applications for School, Workplace, Health/Healing, Leisure/Sports, and Relationships
This course is divided into four effective and enjoyable skills-based units on mastering self-hypnosis. Instruction and application of self-hypnosis will address a broad range of issues (i.e., boosting confidence to give strong presentations or speeches; to improve test-taking scores; and even enhance the quality of mind/body healing while reducing the time involved). Participants will learn valuable, life-long skills to be applied any time, any place. Class handouts, case examples, bibliography, and other resources are provided. All content for this course can be taught in eight hours. Breaking the course into two-hour units allows participants to practice the skills in their daily lives.

approaches found in the fields of energy psychology, breath work, body-centered approaches, and imagery/hypnosis as they are applied to best practices of
mental health treatment.
Helping Clients with Unconsciously-Held Negative Core Beliefs
Unconsciously-held negative core beliefs are at the base of many decisions we make and actions we take. Integrative Psychotherapy is a creative and compelling approach to doing clinical work and offers a powerful means to address and turn around negative core beliefs.
Enhancing Clinical Mastery in Engaging & Serving Male Clients
This class will address the psychotherapist’s use of language and of self, as well as gender-based perspectives and best practices in connecting, assessing, and treating male clients of all ages. We will also examine the roles male and female therapists play with male clients and how the therapist can enhance the clinical art of engaging, communicating and relating toward excellent therapy outcomes. Effectively dealing with male clients who demonstrate narcissistic, manipulative, and overly sexualized behaviors also will be addressed. Case material will be used to support concepts presented, and considerations will be discussed regarding if, when, and how to introduce this work to clients.
