Workshops & Trainings


I have a richness of experiences presenting in national and international spaces. I have provided over 50 presentations and workshops including professional presentations at APA, NLPA, Winter Round Table, ACA, Posner Center, and Academic and community organizations. Additionally, as a past Education, Outreach, and Prevention Specialist at the University of Oregon and a professor in the International Disaster Psychology: Trauma & Global Mental Health program at the University of Denver, I have experience tailoring and facilitating trainings and workshops, teaching and educating broad audiences ( e.g., non-profits, k-12, higher education professionals, hospitals, mental health providers, advocates, organizers, and students) on anti-racism, racial equity, advocacy, mental health and wellness, Trauma responsive care, and effectively serving Global Majorities, undocumented immigrants, and Latinx communities. Workshops and trainings are created with particular themes that commonly reflect the issues or learning objectives of the agency, school, or organization requesting them. All workshops and trainings are tailored made to meet the specific needs of the audience. They offer focused definitions, are interactive, and customized to address organizational questions, concerns, or needs.
