mental health
professionals, & their families,
need support—so they can do it over again.

Schedule Dr. Red Shoe
To Facilitate Your After Action Review or Debrief 

Working teams of first responders, warriors, chaplains, medical and mental health professionals are there when we need them. Dealing with trauma, grief, loss, change, tempers, and suicide takes its toll. Processing event impacts enhances resilience, performance, and growth for individuals and teams.


Dr. Red Shoe uses playful humor to address even the toughest situations. Combat the compassion fatigue that reduces response performance and wellness. Put lessons learned to good use. Discuss what works, what doesn't, and brainstorm solutions together.

Dr. Margarita Gurri is by far the most dynamic speaker I have had the privilege of working with. Her patriotism is unparalleled and her love for our country and those who serve to support it shine through in every aspect of her engagements. The common-sense approach to tackling daily military challenges is inspiring. The feedback we receive from our attendees demonstrates that connects, relates, and inspires service members and families alike. The passion for our Military shine through in her presences as well as her presentations!—Susan Hare, Warrior & Family Support Regional Coordinator
