If you’d like to contact me about speaking to your group, please call me at 314-849-2989, or email me at G.Doherty@att.net.

Speaking engagements give me the opportunity to address subjects I especially care about with a variety of groups and audiences. I have enjoyed speaking with large church congregations on topics such as faith, peace, and trust; new business executives from AT&T on the importance on keeping a balance between professional and personal lives; new nurses and doctors during orientation at Cardinal Glennon Hospital on dealing with the death of a patient. I particularly like speaking to teens and their parents on adolescent and parenting issues. Such talks usually are given during days of reflection, during school assemblies, during faculty in-service days, or during parent meetings.

I have delivered presentations on the following subjects:

  • Parenting teens
  • Family relationships and communication
  • Self-esteem and self-image
  • Self-care
  • Coping with death, dying and grief—adult and child
  • Spirituality and health
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • The need for balance in life
  • Coping skills for dealing with physical and or emotional issues
