“Naumburg related to, delighted in and even commiserated with the women in the room. Naumburg is funny and forthright. Parenting is a tough, messy business that brings on feelings of pure joy, crippling guilt and utter confusion – oftentimes simultaneously.”
– Judy Bolton-Fasman, Meeting Meltdowns With Mindfulness

“Your speaking style reminds of Brene Brown!”
– Elisha Goldstein, PhD, Author of Uncovering Happiness

“On behalf of the entire PTO, thank you for the talk you delivered on Thursday evening. The audience enjoyed every moment, as evidenced by their knowing laughter and rapt attention. The indispensable ingredient was you!”
– Kerry Prasad, PTO President

“Carla is witty, entertaining, and knows her stuff. She was very well received by the large audience, at the end of a long day. She kept the talk moving with her knowledge from the field and great sense of humor.”
– Attendee, “Sleep: Everything Social Workers Need to Know.”

I have delivered keynote addresses and invited lectures at a variety of local, statewide, and national conferences, grand rounds, retreat centers and online events. I’ve spoken at a number of companies and organizations, including Google (on 3 separate occasions!), Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital, Massachusetts General Hospital, and the National Association of Social Workers.

I co-lead yearly mindful mothering retreats at the Copper Beech Institute, and was the keynote at the 2014 Inspired Family Conference. I have spoken about my books as part of the Jewish Book Council‘s 2014 and 2016 tours. I am frequently invited to speak at corporate lunches, academic conferences, church & synagogue events, and PTO/PTA evening lectures.

I am represented by Michele Fee Smith of the American Program Bureau. Please contact Michele directly at mfeesmith@apbspeakers.com or 617-614-1606 to schedule a keynote, parent talk, or community discussion.
