In my work with a wide range of groups and organizations, I often utilize a small group model to facilitate the learning of individuals and families who share common interests and concerns. My seminars, retreats and public presentations focus on several themes:

  • healthy, creative approaches to effective, compassionate caregiving
  • aging well
  • intergenerational relationships
  • financial concerns /raising charitable children
  • developing wisdom and long-term strategies for creating and sustaining balance and contentment amidst the ever-changing realities of life
