After counseling teenagers and their families for over twenty five years, I enjoy stepping beyond the counseling office to spend time conducting training seminars and workshops for adolescents, parents and professionals who interact with teenagers on a regular basis. I would be delighted to partner with your organization to help the individuals in your group make a lasting impact on the lives of teenagers. My dynamic and highly energetic presentations will engage your audience from the start while offering helpful insights and strategies that will benefit their relationships with adolescents.

The seminar titles listed below are a sampling of the various topics that I have done for audiences over the last few years. The title should give you a general sense of the topic. If you are interested in learning more, then email me through the contact tab and I will gladly send you the bullet point outline of the talk.  The length of each workshop can be scaled to fit your needs, however, most are between 45-90 minutes in length. It can also be tailored or combined with other seminars to be used in a retreat or multi-evening series.

I have regularly spoken in both Christian and non-Christian settings and am very accustomed to adapting my workshops to meet the needs and parameters of a particular group. Please contact me by clicking the CONTACT tab if you would like more information about any aspect of my seminars.
