I am engaged in implementations across Canada, the United States and England, actively contributing to the widespread adoption of Signs of Safety. As a licensed trainer and consultant, I am dedicated to equipping participants with a solid foundation in effectively utilizing Signs of Safety with families while addressing the organizational support necessary for this approach to thrive.
With many years of hands-on experience applying Signs of Safety in real-world scenarios, I profoundly understand how its components work together to ensure enduring safety for children. This unique perspective enables me to provide comprehensive guidance and training across all organizational levels, from frontline workers to management.
I bring extensive expertise in delivering support and instruction, ensuring organizations acquire the necessary elements to implement Signs of Safety successfully. Whether offering guidance on practical application or providing strategic direction, I have the practical experience to assist organizations in achieving positive outcomes for children and families.
