More About Me

About Me

I have my master's degree in social work.  Learning about Motivational Interviewing has been (and continues to be) an exciting, transformative experience for me. It's like the ethics/skills/art package I'd been looking for since I began as a helper/professional!  I especially love MI's foundation in research, as I feel that people have a right to expect that I use approaches which have a good probability of being helpful.  My primary experience has been in working with people who have "Severe Mental Illness" (SMI) as well as substance use disorders, and I'm grateful for all that these people have taught me through the years.

Trainer Statement

I work as a consultant trainer at the University of Kansas, where I help community mental health centers implement the Integrated Dual Disorders Treatment (IDDT) model. I've been a member of the MINT since 2005. I have experience coding MI and providing feedback using the MITI. I've been privileged to train on MI at various locations around the country in such areas as health promotion, behavioral health, addictions, and corrections.
