I have experience and interest in presenting, teaching, preaching, consulting, group facilitation, and writing (e.g. articles, blogs) on a variety of topics pertaining to intersections of mental health, social justice, and/or spirituality. Material can be tailored to different contexts and can be presented in a way that emphasizes social sciences, religious studies, or a mix of both.

Potential topics include:

  • Introduction to Mindful Self-Compassion

  • Self-Compassion as a Spiritual Practice

  • DBT skills/Coping skills as a Spiritual Practice

  • Love Thy Body: Embodiment as a Spiritual Practice

  • Fasting & Feasting in a World with Disordered Eating & Body Image Concerns 

  • Is It ‘OK’ to Be Religious and Be Anxious, Depressed, Suicidal…? (Topic can be tailored in many different directions.)

  • Is Self-Care Selfish?

  • Queer Spirituality: Biopsychosocial-spiritual Challenges and Possibilities at Intersections of Faith, Gender, & Sexuality

  • Religious Trauma & Adverse Religious Experiences: What Is It and What Can We Do About It?

  • Spiritual/Religious Factors in Abusive Relationships & Domestic Violence

  • Trauma-Informed Care and/or Trauma-Informed Ministry

Other topics may be available. Let's get creative!
