Trainer Statement


 I was first exposed to Motivational Interviewing (MI) 28 years ago, and haven’t looked back!

After providing hundreds of trainings, I am now thoroughly enjoying providing coaching and feedback to all levels of learners.  This is where growth happens!  I’m feel honored to be a part of what can often be a “life altering experience” for those who choose to take the MI path. Nothing is better then providing a safe enviromenf where people discover ways to work with their clients in a way that actually help!
