I am a trusted leadership advisor with many years of experience in Frederick, Maryland and the surrounding region. I work with organizations on "people and planning" to improve individual and organizational performance, always striving for results you can see.
As an Organizational and Clinical Psychologist, I understand the wide range of behaviors in the workplace. My expertise includes designing and implementing behavior change so individuals can enjoy their work and organizations can succeed.

By finding solutions to these problems, individuals and organizations can relieve tension and achieve excellence.
