Presentations for parents and educators focus on the value of coaching, reflective listening, and mindfulness. Each presentation can be tailored to fit your unique audience.  

 

Assemblies for teens focus on giving yourself a clean slate and taking steps toward self-acceptance.  I share my story while engaging the students in self-reflection so that they are able to walk away with specific, simple steps that will support them in coping with challenging situations and emotions.
