ABOUT ME

ABOUT ME

Hello,

 

Throughout my three careers; corporate accounting, law enforcement, and counseling, there has been one common theme; Crisis. 

 

Crisis causes change. Whether we bring it on ourselves or it is thrust upon us, crisis creates the crucible from within which change is born.  Without crisis, motivation is weak and success more of an ideal than a goal. 

 

You may be having a crisis right now.

 

In business your sales force may be struggling with closing the deal or customer service may be losing customers. 

 

In your personal life you may be struggling with a relationship, or as a parent, or with your own choices and behavior. 

 

You are in the best place for change.  I can help!

  

I am a behaviorist, and I believe that we are a product of both nature and nurture. We inherit traits and disease. Our behaviors are a function of what we are born with and the environments we live in. The choices we make, whether they be rational and informed or just on instinct, are all tied to how we navigate both our genetics and our world. 

 

If you are tired of the way things are and are willing to put forth the effort to make a change, if you are not trapped in a victim mentality and if you don’t procrastinate, then I can help you through your crisis.  Be it business or personal, together, we will not only define success but live it.
