Over 25 Years of Improving
Individual & Organizational Performance

I can help you choose a direction, then work effectively with your people to achieve your goals.

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.

I have the greatest respect for people and their efforts on the job. Most people most of the time try to do their best, but personal "blind spots", developmental needs, and/or organizational roadblocks get in the way. By finding solutions to these problems, individuals and organizations can relieve tension and achieve excellence.

Order and Chaos

We generally don’t like chaos. It’s confusing, unpredictable, and frequently destructive. We much prefer order, especially in business. We make plans, execute them, and expect to achieve measurable results. The more controllable and predictable, the better.

But as Scottish poet Robert Burns once wrote, “The...


Go With The Flow

Let’s join two ideas together and see what we get.

Idea One - The other day I was wondering about the speed we’re actually traveling when we’re sitting still. It’s a wonderful feeling, sitting still. Rather quiet and restful. We notice everything around us is still, too –our papers and books and...


Staying in the Loop

“A man hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest . . .”
From The Boxer by Paul Simon

I’ve always been fascinated by the concept of a feedback loop. It’s a simple idea with profound implications. In its basic form, a feedback loop is outcome information that’s...
