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.

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