I’ve realized that training other professionals is a way to reach a broader audience and help more people at once, and I immensely enjoy giving seminars, webinars, and workshops on topics such as neuropsychotherapy, trauma, and anxiety. Additionally, I very much enjoy coaching mental health professionals who are struggling with life design, starting a practice, and balancing life’s demands, and I hope to do more of this in the future.”
