She has taught these mental training techniques in lectures to medical school students and athletes alike, and to individuals looking for this type of support. She has lectured on topics ranging from harm reduction, love and sex addiction, navigating the end of a relationship, coping with graduate school stress and anxiety, to the clinical roots to childhood separation anxiety.
