Speaking & Training

I currently offer trainings on giftedness and twice-exceptionality for mental health professionals. In the past, I have supervised psychology graduate students, trained teachers and educational administrators, and taught students from elementary school through graduate school. I have also spoken about psychology and education topics at meetings and conferences across the country and online.
