I give talks on a variety of subjects, including my Year of Fearless Love (and how it completely changed the trajectory of my life); Self-Love (why we struggle to love ourselves and how to make it a daily practice); and Creativity (living a creative life, trusting the creative process, and doing what lights you up inside). I approach my topics with a genuine desire to engage the audience in a conversation that leaves us all better off. The world needs more conversation.
If you're interested in booking me to speak to your group, feel free to contact me with the details of your event.
My workshops can be taught in your studio or place of business, or they can be privately hosted. (I work closely with hosts to make sure a fun time is had by all, and hosts, of course, do not pay a registration fee.) If you're interested in booking me to teach a workshop, contact me and we'll figure out what works best for you.
