Why should I enroll myself or my group in a Training?

eCPR is a public health educational program designed by persons with a lived experience of recovery from trauma or mental health challenges to teach people of all backgrounds and professions to assist others through emotional crisis. Emotional crisis is a universal experience.

eCPR has been taught globally for over a decade, is evidence-based, and has been facilitated in human healthcare, veterinary medicine, criminal justice/police groups, social work and peer-assistance groups, schools and youth, general public, and more. CEUs are available for many professions. The training is applicable to ALL backgrounds and experience levels. In addition to saving lives, eCPR becomes a way of life.

One-to-One Peer Support

In addition to leading and facilitating eCPR Trainings, WeCPR Community gatherings, and the Six-Week Introduction to Mindful Awareness SIT courses, I am available for one-to-one private peer support sessions. These sessions are not intended to be, nor are a replacement for, therapy provided by a licensed mental health professional; however, sometimes we simply need to feel heard!  Whether you are interested in deepening your mindfulness meditation practice, need to explore a challenging situation, or simply need to feel profoundly heard, please reach out to discuss how I may be of support in your journey.
