Education and Training

As a professional educator, lifelong learner and business owner, I am a firm believer that knowledge has the power to elevate our broader understanding of our goals as well as improve the quality of our inter-personal relationships.

The Grief Spot offers a education and training in the format of a single workshop or presentation or as a series.  Hourly and whole project rates are available.  Services can be delivered at your site or via video conferencing (to groups of 4 or less).
