I know from experience and dedicated self-work that one’s life can be changed: we are not destined to relive the dysfunction of our families of origin. I have great faith in the human ability to heal and recover, and I want to share this faith and my experiences with others. Being a former professional dancer, I love being on the stage and giving my talents to an audience. I would value the opportunity to bring my story to your audience!
If you are looking for someone to present on mental and emotional trauma and recovery; if you are looking for someone who can inspire and motivate people in the belief that a rich and full life can be lived on the other side of trauma or abuse; or, if you are looking for someone who can help instruct people on how to begin or advance the process of writing their own story, then please contact me at email@example.com.
