I have made it my mission to raise awareness and start conversations about grief. Grief is something all of us will eventually experience, but none of us are allowed to talk about it. I would like to change that. I do this through speaking engagements, my blog posts, and frequently in day to day conversations I have with colleagues and friends. I enjoy speaking about this topic, and I would be happy to come speak on your podcast, any community event, or radio show. I have extensive knowledge specific to child and adolescent grief and would love to share it with others. Please contact me if you would like to book me for a speaking engagement.
