You are not alone. Given the prevalence of child sexual assault, there are often survivors participating in my workshops.
I work very hard to create a safe environment and encourage people to seek outside support as necessary. Please email me if you would like a referral.
Many survivors report that the workshop is healing and gives them confidence in protecting their own children. In any case, the information presented is priceless for your family.
The workshops are for adults — ages 18 and up.

We can give you a certificate of attendance for you to submit to your discipline.
Yes! And it’s just as fulfilling as hosting a live workshop.
