I focus on working with business leaders, family business owners, and individuals in the LGBTQ+ community. Our identities do not stop at the door and are with us in all that we do. Many of my clients still struggle with sexual identity, acceptance, and relationships. In addition, some clients are parents dealing with their identity and role within the home and in their professional lives.


My dynamic seminars focus on interpersonal communication, personal effectiveness, goal setting, organizational change, diversity, workplace harassment and more.
