As a speech pathologist, writer, and Harvard lecturer, I’m passionate about the power of language and conversation to enhance our relationships.
In my latest book, The Art of Talking with Children and my approach, I’ll show you how to enrich your interactions with the kids in your life and build the skills kids really need to thrive. I talk about meaningful conversations as a “double promise.” They build your bond with kids in the moment, and they help kids become kinder, confident, and more creative.
To support these richer conversations, I offer professional development services to organizations, districts, and schools, as well as one-time speaking engagements targeted to your organization’s needs.
Contact me to set up a discovery call.
As I’m also a poet and fiction writer, I love helping both kids and adults with their creativity and personal development.
I offer group coaching sessions in fiction, nonfiction, and poetry.
Contact me for more information or to set up a time to call.
