All of my speaking engagements are tailored to be appropriate for the audience.

 I define what grief, loss, trauma, bereavement and mourning are. We use these words interchangeably but they are quite different. Includes discussions on healing modalities, the role of culture and ritual in grief and loss. Memorialization and reframing as a mode of meaning making. 

Educational style dialogue

9/11 was a chapter in my story. It wasn't the end or even the beginning. Unbeknownst to me, I had been preparing for it for my entire life. Subsequently, it was the portal to my re-creation. It was a re-birth (labor pains and all) I speak on how I connected the dots in all of my major life experiences and describe the difference between unintentional growth vs intentional evolution.

The rising and the remembering

Arthur Schopenhauer stated “Mostly it is loss which teaches us the worth of things”. My talk on Grief and Grace dives deeply into how being broken is not the same as being broken up. There is an invitation at the confluence of heartbreak and despair to rise up. I speak on how I responded to this invitation and what I learned along the way. I use the acronym Grace to offer actionable tools for healing. 


My speaking engagements focus on multiple topics.
