Headshot of Lisa Friedman

As an award-winning Disability Inclusion Expert I know that each of us has a right to belong. 

I have been working with faith communities, organizations, schools, and camps for over twenty years; guiding staff, clergy, and families in the development of genuine inclusive practice.


Through interactive workshops, dialogue, and keynote speeches I help organizations to actively live their values. 

My broad expertise in psychology, counseling, education, and Jewish communal life enables me to hone interactive and effective training sessions for all skill levels. A hallmark of my sessions is the seamless blending of both modeling and skill-building.

I have a Bachelor's degree in Psychology and a Master's in Counseling Psychology, both from Rutgers University. I am certified in Mental Health First Aid, both elementary and special education, and I have extensive experience teaching and coaching families and learners of all ages.

I have written extensively on the topic of disability inclusion and I am available to develop curriculum in the area of disability inclusion. I invite you to read my blog: Removing the Stumbling Block.
