Mary continues to be one of our top-rated presenters, even after 18 years of speaking at our yearly conference to return participants. We wouldn’t think of doing a conference without her.

I know firsthand …

… the challenge—and the rewardof finding a great event speaker. In addition to my 30 years in public speaking, I have spent more than 10 years developing, organizing, and managing large, multi-day conferences at a local, national, and even international level. I know all too well that the right speaker can make or break an event.

On this page, I share what I have to offer as a public speaker, including a taste of what you can expect from me. My hope is to make your task of choosing the right speaker as easy as possible.

About Me

I have been speaking professionally for more than 30 years, in every role imaginable—keynote presenter, emcee, workshop leader, conference directer, television guest, and even adjunct professor. Through my work with Her Holiness Sai Maa, I have presented on the spiritual dimension of psychology and healing. to audiences around the globe (Japan, Belgium, Germany, Canada, Ireland, France).

Multiple times each year, I have spoken to audiences of 750 and greater. In 2004, I founded the Center for Integrative Psychotherapy, enabling me to teach hundreds of hours on energy psychology and trauma recovery through conferences, educational workshops, videos, and clinical supervision. In addition, I served as the Conference and Educational Director, then the President of the Association for Comprehensive Energy Psychology (ACEP).

Throughout my speaking career, I have also worked as a counseling clinician, with more than 34,000 client hours logged.

Speaking Topics for Helping Professionals

You’re More Important Than You Think: The Energetics of the Therapeutic Relationship

How does healing happen? What are the key ingredients that make one technique seem to work better with your clients than another? This talk will challenge your beliefs about theories, therapy, and methodologies. I discuss one key ingredient all helping professionals must bring to the table to make methods effective, as well as what any licensed or non-licensed practitioner can to do improve his or her work—guaranteed. Note: This talk is a great fit for doctors and other medical professionals, too.

Beyond Technique: The Sacred Role of the Healer

What is “dis-ease” from an energetic and spiritual perspective? How can a professional integrate spiritual and energetic principles into clinical care in a way that doesn’t sound blaming or “new–agey”? Through experiential exercises, you will have the opportunity to learn ways to raise and strengthen your own vibration to reach a state where healing can naturally occur, for you and your clients.

When You Are the Issue: Identifying & Releasing the Blocking Beliefs of the Practitioner

Ever had a client who, despite your best efforts, you just couldn’t connect with? This workshop helps you identify what your “difficult” clients are mirroring back to you about yourself. You will have the opportunity to gain tools intended to release your own limiting beliefs so that you can better assist all your clients.

Integrating Energy Techniques into the Treatment of Trauma

This full-day workshop integrates the 4 stages of trauma treatment into clinical care. It begins with a full discussion of how to evaluate for dissociation. Next, you will have the opportunity to learn how to use energy techniques for stabilization and safety prior to processing traumatic events. Utilizing videotaped treatment segments, you will then discover how you can help clients safely process trauma. Note: This is a “must” workshop for therapists who work with trauma using energy psychology methods.

Preventing Practitioner Burnout

In this workshop, I teach about energy in the therapeutic context. You will have the opportunity to gain practical know-how for strengthening your own energy field so that you can stay healthy, vibrant, and passionate about your work as a helping professional.
