Our Services

  • Is there an online version of Increasing Trauma Informed Practices?
    An online model of the training is in the works, stay tuned for more updates.
  • Do you offer any discounts for the trainings?
    Yes! Non-profit organizations can take advantage of a 20% discount on classes (excluding CEG binders/kits) using coupon codes "Non-profit20off1" and "Non-profit20off2." Also, agencies booking five or more courses receive 15% the total using coupon code "15off5ormore." Both are limited to one use per customer. Contact Lee if you have any specific questions.
  • What is your go-to training style?
    I pull a lot of my training style from the immortal words of the warrior poet, Vanilla Ice: “All right stop/Collaborate and listen.” I prefer more of a discussion over a lecture. With discussions there is often more participant “buy-in” to the topic and it also levels the power differential a little. Coming into a class or lesson as the “teacher” automatically brings with it an implied level of power. Leading a discussion can level that and lessen the “us” and “them.” Here’s a video I’m going to share in the workshop that explains that idea pretty well:
  • Is the Creative Expressions Group training art therapy?
    The short answer is no. The Creative Expressions Group (CEG) is a 5-session program using art and creative projects to learn increase communications skills, emotional intelligence, interpersonal skills, and assisting participants implement budgeting tools. The CEG is not specifically "art therapy" but does implement research based practices.
  • I just scheduled a training, now what?
    First, thank you. Second, you should have received a confirmation email with all the pertinent information. If you did not receive that email, please reach out to Lee at any time.
  • I emailed Lee and haven't heard back, what gives?!
    Working full time as a police officer and balancing family life can sometimes lead to inconsistant work schedule. Your patience is greatly appreciated.
  • Why do you charge a 3% cancelation fee?
    The platform used to process online payments takes an immediate fee of every purchase (both classes and products). The cancelation policy covers that fee in case a refund is requested.
  • My question isn't covered, what do I do?
    Please email and we will get back to you as soon as possible. Even if you just want a silly joke, we'll get back to you.
