I provide training, facilitation, and consultation on issues related to race, neurodiversity, gender, privilege, difference, power dynamics, fragility, empathy, and awareness. I work alone and also lean on a team of facilitators who self-identify and specialize in areas that are different from my own. I engage my audience by delivering theory and content in short segments, followed by examples, experiential activities, and dialogue in-between. I aim to balance cognition, feelings, sensations, experience, and space. I have presented internationally, nationally, and at the local-level.
Beyond the Binary: It’s Not All Black and White (2-4 hour training)
This training is both a presentation and experience on the intersection between social position and relationship. Opportunities will be provided to further your awareness and understanding of intersectionality, difference, and power dynamics. You may receive an invitation to explore various visible and invisible social positions of yourself and/or others related to race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, age, neurology, body, religion, education, geographic location, and others. In addition to didactic and experiential learning, a discussion will finalize the experience of how to extend this interaction beyond the walls of the training.
Participants will leave with handouts and a certificate of attendance.
My training rate is $225/hour and $175/hour for additional facilitators (i.e., inter-racial dialogue facilitator). Transportation, lodging, meals, and additional fees for time are required for workshops outside of Asheville, North Carolina, USA.

I provide group facilitation involving emotional-charge, relational elements, or power dynamics on topics related to power, privilege, and/or oppression involving two or more people.
I also have a friend and co-facilitator, Terry Slye, LPC (pictured next to me) for groups where we bring our relationship (inter-racial and emphasize points of our intersectional identities in relationship to each other) with each other to teach, model, and facilitate.
