Training Services

I currently offer training services to support professionals in the social service field as well as providing on-site consultation and capacity-building services.  Through my work as the director of the Westside Domestic Violence Network, I have facilitated and conducted small skill-building workshops as well as large conferences.  


I have taught full-semester and quarter courses for graduate-level social work students covering basic clinical skills, evidence-based models (e.g., CBT, solution-focused therapy, motivational interviewing), family therapy, child mental health, attachment-theory, neurobiology and couples therapy.  


I have a passion for the infinite process of learning, but not just learning, but the types of connections that occur and the deep fulfillment of learning through interactions and social connections.


I offer a free 45-minute consult in order to tailor the training to your particular needs.  The list below is not exhaustive and I'm always open to exploring a new training topic.
