I'm delighted to work with queer, trans, and poly folks (as well as folks who don't identify in these ways).

Workshops and
Other Trainings

I offer a variety of workshops, through Portland Community College's Community Education division, at conferences, on my own, and for groups by invitation.


Some workshops I regularly offer include:

  • Tools for Getting Unstuck

  • Creative Problem Solving

  • Taming Your Inner Critic

  • Moving from Complaints to Collaboration

  • Building Mutual Respect and Trust

  • Meeting Facilitation Skills (basic and intermediate)

From Workshop Evaluations:

"A very different way of viewing and dealing with difficulties. It was rewarding and had very good results."

"Gives you tangible tools to use on your own. Tasha is really great!"

"This workshop has changed how I think about my life."

Affinity Group Work

Doing affinity group work is a way to work with others to build your capacity to make changes that will concretely increase equity, inclusion and the shared sense of belonging – in your self, in your workplace, in your neighborhood, in your family, in your larger community, in this deeply divided nation, and in the world as a whole.

I do this work both inside organizations, and as stand-alone groups.

I lead affinity groups focused on the work "folks like me" need to do in service to this work. As a white, cis-gender, queer woman, that means I work with groups of: White folks (of all other identities), women/femmes (including trans-women) and non-binary folk, but not cis-gendered men, queer folk.

I welcome opportunities to co-lead groups and processes that include folks with other identities, as long as my co-facilitator is representative of the identities I am not.

"Tasha contributes curiosity and compassion to conversations about race. Her approach leaves space for multiple perspectives and authentic discussion."
