Lani is extremely knowledgeable about trauma’s impact and how to heal the damage and distress it can bring to someone’s life.  When she spoke as a guest lecturer to my class of counseling interns, she deepened their understanding and compassion for trauma survivors and gave them accessible tools for helping clients process overwhelming material.  Her knowledge and experience are a gold mine for anyone who wants to deepen their understanding and skills to work with trauma survivors.

“We have been so honored to not only have Lani as a session presenter but also our conference keynote. She has this amazing way of connecting with people on an emotional level.  Our attendees were fully engaged and moved through her story with tears and laughter.  Lani is a consummate professional but most importantly, is genuine, passionate, and kind. Years later, people still bring up her presentations.  I highly recommend her for any event!”
