Events and COVID-19
Your physical health and safety is my top priority when planning events.
The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the spread of the Delta and Omicron variants make social distancing vital to public health. As a result, I am not planning to host in-person workshops or trainings for the foreseeable future.
We are in an uncertain and dynamic situation. Things can change quickly, and I will make every attempt to adapt accordingly. As vaccine booster shots become available, community spread may decrease.
Please continue to check back here regularly for updates.
I do also understand the impact isolation has on our mental health. As soon as it is safe to do so, I will return to offering in-person services. They will likely take place outdoors with masks required.
In the meantime, you can connect with me in the following ways:

We are living in an age of Zoom fatigue. It is hard to stare at screens all day.
When you get home (or move from your desk to the couch) the last thing you want to do is log into ANOTHER virtual meeting!
I understand that maintaining attention is more challenging in virtual workshops and trainings than it is in person.
I had created self-paced courses via CourseCraft, but they have since gone out of business.
Stay tuned while I research a different platform for asynchronous offerings. In the meantime, you may benefit from reading some of my blog entries!
