Trainer Statement

Like good therapy, I believe that good training starts with understanding the needs of the client. I consider it an honor to be asked to provide training for other professionals, therefore I take a great of deal of time developing training opportunities that meet the needs of my audience.  The first step in having me conduct a training is an in-depth discussion of your needs and the outcomes you would like to have participants achieve.  From there we would work together to develop a plan you and I think would best benefit you and/or your program.  I believe training should be fun, interactive, challenging and inspirational.  I want participants to leave my training time yearning to learn more!  I've provided MI training in 1/2 day, day long and multi-day formats to participants of all levels.
