I'm actively involved in implementations across Canada and the United States. As a licensed trainer and consultant, I provide participants with a grounded understanding of Signs of Safety use with families and the support this work requires on an organizational level. After many years of applying Signs of Safety in the field, I have a unique understanding of the way that all aspects of Signs of Safety interact to create lasting safety for children. I have extensive experience providing guidance and training to all levels, from frontline workers to management.
