I love to share my stories

 

After 40 years of experience, I consider speaking and sharing wisdom with other professionals, community leaders, and the public to be one of the greatest uses of my time.

My teaching sessions are designed to help clinicians develop their knowledge of the mind-body connection and how it works, learning to see and treat each patient as a whole being. I am also available to speak to the public, sharing nutritional strategies they can implement themselves to improve their mood and overall well-being.

My teaching method combines clinical knowledge with wisdom gained in the field to not only share facts, but ideas for how to put those facts into practice. I love to share stories about my work, and believe my unique background is what sets me apart as a speaker and educator.

I am available for keynotes as well as weekend workshops for other professionals. I will also work with you to develop custom content based on your areas of interest or need.
