Trainings We Offer

Barriers to inclusion are not due to lack of information. Rather, we encounter conflict and emotional roadblocks that keep our teams stuck.


All of our workshops are led by Masters and Doctoral level therapists. As professional mental health practicioners we have the tools to help your team get unstuck. Explore our corporate DEI workshops to see what best fits the needs of your team.

Why train with a therapist?

Change happens when we address underlying emotions. As therapists, we're uniquely equipped to guide your team through that journey. We bring:

Professional Expertise

Emotions are complex. We have therapeutic knowledge and real-life experience to help us teach concepts related to emotions.

Trauma-Informed Care

Trainings that emphasize emotions may bring up sensitive topics such as past traumas, conflicts, or triggers. We create safe spaces and manage such discussions with sensitivity and ethical concern.

Psychological Safety

As we explore more deeply together, we create a safe and supportive environment for participants to share and process their emotions.

Interactive Facilitation

As trained therapeutic facilitators, we lead interactive activities, group discussions, and role-plays to foster deeper exploration and experiential learning. 

Individualized Guidance

Growth often requires personalized feedback. We can provide individualized support and insights that consider the specific needs of each participant. 

Nuanced Skills

Emotions-focused growth involves nuanced skills such as self-awareness and empathy. As therapists, we help participants understand these skills and learn how to apply them in real life.

What participants are saying...

The most helpful part of this training was the opportunity to be vulnerable with our team. It’s rare that I’ve had a chance to experience this level of trust and openness in a work environment. It was different than what I expected, but fantastic.

This was fantastic and not a cookie cutter training where you’re spoken at. Extremely interactive and thought provoking.

My gender and culture both are in the minority here, but the openness to discuss and have your team articulate the problems using a solution focused lens - which is practical and feasible for us all - has been very helpful. I left the session very inspired and more hopeful for the possibility of change.
