Webinars and trainingsRajani has presented a wide variety of trainings on topics ranging from domestic violence to EMDR therapy, group counseling process to vicarious resilience and more. She is a very accessible speaker who integrates her personal and professional identities to offer trainings, presentations, workshops and collaborative experiences that touch the heart of our humanity, while activating the potential for deep and lasting change, not only on the individual life, but in the interpersonal plane.

Using personal narrative that steps away from criticism and judgment, she eschews shame and blame in favor of compassionate counterstories that are surprising in their positive impact. She invites each of us to step beyond our comfort zone and into life as a learning playground, where change is ever-occurring and where each of us can become powerful agents of social transformation.

S-Corp Webinar

MFT S-CorpWondering whether an S-Corp might be right for you?

Are you planning on a significant bump in your income in 2018 and wondering whether you could save money by switching from sole-proprietor to becoming an MFT S-Corp?

Join me for a 2 hour webinar where I will walk you through all the pre and post steps I took to make an S-Corp really work for me. You could end up saving thousands of dollars by moving in this direction.

While I’m not a CPA or an attorney, I am happy to share everything I learned along the path to becoming the proud owner of an MFT S-Corp. I’ll walk you through a series of informative slides, and then answer questions from live attendees.
