What's your story? Our human experience is a rich and glorious story – a reflection of essence through the mirror of our individuality. Within that larger story, we hold our own personal stories that frame our lives and shape how we see ourselves. Sharing these stories in safe relational presence allows us to claim them, reframe them, and let them go.  

I offer personal storytelling workshops based on Speaking Circle principles. We begin with soulful listening to create an inviting, safe listening field that allows our stories to emerge. Then, I guide you to tap into your wealth of stories, and show you how to share them with ease and presence.

I also work with authors, healers and others to expand their public presence in person, in print and online, through creative consulting, website content development, editing and more.

I fell in love with Speaking Circles the first time I participated in 1997 and became a Facilitator at the first possible opportunity. I later had the pleasure of working closely with Lee Glickstein for many years as Speaking Circles deepened and evolved.
