I frequently customize, adapt, and create trainings, workshops and presentations on topics that I regularly work on in my private practice, as well as on areas that are normally outside of my area of expertise.  Please feel free to contact me at 678-999-3390 if your group or agency would like to invite me to provide a lecture, training, or presentation.

I find that giving presentations on a variety of topics has a positive reciprocal effect benefiting both my audience and my clinical practice.  My presentations have been conducted for non-profit organizations, agencies, therapists, students, and various other types of groups. As part of these experiences, I have developed, organized, and performed lectures and trainings including:
