As a certified Compassion Cultivation Training (CCT) teacher, and a certified The Daring Way™ (TDW) teacher I also offer classes in CCT, TDW and Brené Brown's newest program, Rising Strong. As a mentor, I offer mentorship toward certification for MSC, and also mentorship for people who are not interested in certification but want to improve their own lives, or their teaching, through the practice of MSC. This is also available in an intensive format. In addition, as a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I offer intensive psychotherapy for individuals and couples.
