Presentations

Teaching is an integral part of my work as a psychotherapist and consultant. Adults across all environments influence children’s development. Group presentations, on-line workshops, and webinars allow me to teach as many people, from as many disciplines, as possible.

I offer half-day and full-day workshops on a variety of child development and mental health topics.
