I have spoken to groups all over the United States on various topics and in 1999 was awarded the “Educator of The Year” from Park Nicollet Medical Center (the only non-physician to ever receive this award). I speak to health professionals, patients and special groups (such as Native Americans) related to issues associated with emotions and chronic disease, sexuality and sexual problems, meditation (which I teach), and behavior change. (See the list)

For those of you who are looking for a speaker or someone with my background to write for you, I’d like the opportunity to work with you.
