Trainer Statement

My diverse clinical experience translates into a real world focus in my trainings.  I believe that participants learn best when they experience the MI through multiple portals, i.e. modeling, watching, reflecting, practicing, thinking and resting. I want them to walk out ready to try something new and I utilize all my own MI skills to make this happen. This makes the learning itself fascinating on several levels. I love what I do.
