Types of Our Services

KeyNote Speaker

While nobody volunteers for catastrophe, Dr. Beverly Moskowitz redefined her views on parenting, relationships, communication, self-preservation and her professional role in the school setting due to life altering experiences. In a moving and yet, surprisingly funny address that resonates with our collective humanity, Dr. Bev exposes the ‘Secrets Behind Her Mask’. Whether a parent yourself of a special needs’ child or the professional dealing with one, her humorous take on tragedy will transform your practice, inform your interactions and give everyone permission to dance again.

In 2019, Dr. Bev joined the roster of memorable Keynote presenters with this thoughtful reflection on being both a provider and a consumer of therapeutic services.

This Keynote is an emotionally powerful, relatable and inspirational way to welcome any gathering of people confronting challenges. Its theme of acceptance, oneself and others, appears doable when reframed as a quality having not been mastered… yet!
