A facilitator guides the way for others to find the path that’s best for them. Denina holds space for individuals and groups to share experiences, engage in discussion, and participate at their own pace. She guides evidence-based and innovative practices and helps groups move forward through a process.
Community conversations are dialogue opportunities for individuals to discuss issues, brainstorm solutions, or simply share and grow together. These conversations can be designed for targeted or diverse groups and for large or small numbers of people. Denina has expertise working in the areas of trauma healing and recovery, addiction recovery, mental health recovery, and LGBTQIA+ lived and allied experience. The format and techniques used for community conversations respects the confidentiality of the storyteller and encourages trauma-informed approaches to sharing space together.
