I remember working with a little girl in my office when I was a young resident. She was one of hundreds of traumatized youth I was working with that year. Her treatment goal? To be willing to get her hands dirty. She had been physically beaten and neglected so horribly that she was afraid of making even the smallest mistakes. Day by day, moment by moment, we created an atmosphere of trust. One day, she came into my office with a smile on her face and said, "I'm ready...." She sunk her hands into the gooey, bright pink paint and proceeded to smear the color all over paper. Then I smiled. I took a glop of paint and plopped it on my nose. She giggled with delight. She painted her face, her hands, the paper, my face, my hands.
You're already doing this - you're an inspired professional with a huge heart who's hungry for more and wants to reach more children and families....
You're burned out because you know you want to help the children and families you work with but need more "how to" and practical strategies....
to deep dive into ways to reach children and families and begin to transform the culture of your work.

I blend scripts, best practices, and skill sets that mix humor and compassion with knowledge to train professionals how to meaningfully connect with children and their families. Curriculum includes the importance of secure relationships – meaning unconditional love, healthy attachments and positive discipline – which transforms their work and creates more resilient families.

“Amy’s workshop was mind blowing. There were so many practical things that no one has ever said to me and I’ve never read anywhere. Too many times, speakers are too perfect and haven’t dealt with the any of the things they are presenting. Amy is real. My husband and I both left her training feeling empowered.”
