Speaking & Professional Development


Despite parent-led advocacy and increases in published research, awareness of Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) and the Highly Sensitive Person (HSP), is still relatively low. To bridge this knowledge gap, I give talks for parents, educators and clinicians on “Parenting the Highly Sensitive Child” and “Teaching the Highly Sensitive Child.”

In addition, I present lectures, workshops and professional development trainings on authentic parenting, anxiety, and communication. Please contact me if you would like a custom talk or professional development training for your organization.

  • Mindful and Reflective Parenting
  • Communicating for Connection
  • How to Help Your Anxious Child
