Dr. Steiner is passionate about helping patients and therapists live life to the fullest. She gives keynote addresses, leads workshops, is a motivational speaker, and consults with patients, organizations, practicing therapists, physicians, attorneys, and health care workers. Any content area can be presented as inspirational keynote presentations, in-service training events, half or all-day workshops, group discussions, etc.

Recently Dr. Steiner has begun offering trainings for professional speakers and small business owners on how to create effective back-up systems. The system helps workshop participants think through ways to put together a small group of trusted peers to replace them in the event of expected and unexpected absences.

I prefer to design each presentation to address the particular needs of your membership or organization. The format can include interactive sections, short small group discussions etc.

If you have any questions or want to discuss whether and how I can be of assistance, please feel free to call (925) 962-0060 or send an email with your phone number and a variety of times when it would be convenient for me to return your call.
