I am a skilled and compassionate facilitator who can help your organization go deep and explore questions around diversity, self-expression and sharing your personal story. I hold challenging conversations with care, with an ability to bring out the nuances through storytelling, dialogue and writing. My approach is inviting, expansive, interactive and engaging.
I have worked with many different groups from youth to corporate to seniors, adapting my facilitation style to meet your audience’s needs. I listen deeply to the desires of each group, meeting people where they’re at and exploring their journeys with them. Through shared connection and encouragement, I challenge and empower participants to explore different parts of themselves through writing, sharing and performing.
In my workshops, I acknowledge the fear that may be present when we write or share our stories. I lead by example and share some of my personal experiences in a humorous, engaging and gentle way, helping others see the power of breaking silences and giving them the tools to empower themselves through storytelling. This vulnerability can lead to spaces of connection, healing, self-exploration and hope.
I can facilitate a one-off workshop for your organization or conference, or multiple workshops for your group. I also work as a writing coach with Firefly Creative Writing. Learn more about my work and writing services on the Firefly website.
