Speaking + Training

  • Need an energetic speaker for an upcoming event or meeting?
  • Want me to deliver a marriage workshop for couples at your church?
  • A conflict management training for your work team?
I aim to pack every presentation with relevant, research-based content, tangible tools, and amusing anecdotes so the audience learns something new AND (hopefully) has a little fun, too. 

"Thank you for speaking at our MOPS group last year. We received the end of the year surveys from the ladies and they just raved about you. Many asked specifically if we could have you come again."

-Jenny, MOPS Leader

“I went to a seminar years ago that Dr. Kara was leading on conflict. To this day I still remember what she talked about! Dr. Kara has a way of making important psychology and relationship topics approachable and straightforward. She gives practical steps that you can start implementing right away!"
