Coaching


Support for the next step on your path

About my coaching practice


After over 25 years of working as a behavior analyst, there’s lots of information I could tell you about what I “do”, but if you’re thinking of working with me, I want you to know who I am, as much as what I do and have done*, and to me that means giving you a sense of what I value—why I have chosen the path I am on.

I value rigor—I have always sought rigorous training, and I take pride in conducting precise and thorough analyses. I was privileged to have an exceptional foundational education in behavior analysis, and to work with giants in the Verbal Behavior field in my first job, and I sought out the best as I shifted into work in RFT. I expect that if you’re here, you’re looking for this kind of integrity in your work—even if it isn’t the easiest of paths to take.

I value solving difficult problems and moving our field forward, which has led me to do things because no-one else is doing them—because if I don’t start, who will? I went so far as to do a whole PhD because I couldn’t get the answers to my questions any other way. My guess is that this describes you too—over the past two decades I’ve been privileged to work with people who have been the first in their states, regions, or countries to become certified as behavior analysts, and who have continued to push the envelope to provide best practices to their clients.

I also value compassion, and kindness, and being a whole person. My life’s journey, like most people’s, has included many circuitous paths. I have a teenager, a partner, and a community of people and activities that are important to me and add to the context of all that I do. I deeply understand that we each have our own story, and our own mountain to climb. If you’d like support for the next step on your own path, however circuitous it might be, let’s talk about how I can help. You can read more about the main services I provide below, and I’m happy to chat any time, just send me an email.

Coaching for committed action


Are you looking for support as you take the next step in your career? Struggling with completing your dissertation, writing projects, or just feeling stuck? The Mindful Action Plan combines Acceptance and Commitment Training with performance management principles to help you move forward in service of your values. Together we will work on clarifying your values, setting goals, identifying internal and external barriers to progress, and then taking committed action for the next step on your path. Contact me for a free initial consultation to talk about your needs. 

RFT coaching and curriculum consultation


Are you looking to go beyond basic training and integrate RFT into your practice? Individualized coaching with a focus on case consultation and curriculum development gives you the support you need to successfully apply RFT to your EIBI programs. We will work together to ensure you not only understand the theoretical foundations, but you are able to take what you’ve learned and infuse it into your practice from the ground up. Research/dissertation coaching is also available. Contact me for a free initial consultation to discuss your interests and needs. 

RFT/EIBI Supervision


Are you looking to go beyond basic training and integrate RFT into your practice as you complete your supervised independent fieldwork? Designed to be completed either at the end of your fieldwork experience, or in tandem with additional supervision, this supervision module gives you the support you need to successfully apply RFT to your EIBI programs. Readings and theoretical assignments will be provided to ensure you understand the theoretical foundations, and case reviews will ensure you are able to take what you’ve learned and infuse it into your practice from the ground up. Research/dissertation coaching is also available. This module is designed to be completed within 12 meetings (over 6 months or as needed for your fieldwork hours). A sliding scale is available for students in developing countries. Contact me for a free initial consultation to discuss your interests and needs. 

Supervision to build local capacity


Are you completing your coursework while practicing in a region or community that does not have access to local expertise? I maintain space in my caseload specifically to work with professionals (or parents working towards certification themselves) in areas without access to local supervision. Many of my supervision clients have been the first or among the first to be certified as behavior analysts in their country or region.

You must already be engaged in behavior analytic consultation and have previous training in programming based on an analysis of verbal behavior. Contact me for a free initial consultation to discuss your interests and needs. A sliding scale is available for students in developing countries.
