Welcome! I equip communities and specifically educators and first responders for unique resiliency required in crisis response and stress management. In today’s society with increased violence at schools and in the workplace at the time, there is a great need to mitigate the ripple effect of job performance and increased risk to personal performance on and off the job.
My mission is to equip and train using content the meets CEU credits for specialized professionals and provide quality mental wellness training.
Everyone needs hope and often we as “normal human beings” make the fatal mistake of imposing unrealistic expectations on our selves and others to remain operational or get the job done when we desperately need personal development in skills to maintain the one mind we have. Top performance is key at work and in families. The benefit of content training provided is practical and priceless. Think about it, how can you know what you do not know?
Honestly, no one can and that complicate the work we do and relationships maintain or inadvertently undermine by merely trying to survive job stress. That is why I am passionate about meeting people in places of pain and penetrating hearts with hope and help needed “now!”
I train and equip teams in order to mitigate the impact of traumatic events and the residual effect it can have on individuals and the agencies they employ. As a crisis response professional, deployment to terrorist acts, school crisis, natural disaster, and community tragedies are part of my life’s call, skills and giftings to serve others.
Critical incidents including loss of life naturally and commonly activate post-traumatic stress. My goal is to empower individuals to know how to better navigate the aftermath of the unexpected. I seek to mitigate and impart practical skills that few people invest in for the sake of maintaining mental wellness as part of overall human health. Empowerment and recognition of what is common and how to navigate the common impact of traumatic stress in neede today more than never. Stronger teams lead to an maintain productive results!
What are the benefits? Applied Conflict Resolution and Critical Incident Stress Management skills lower absenteeism, improved relationships and the ability to do the job required safely and without compromise to self and others. Post-traumatic stress does not have to escalate or spiral into a disorder. Post-traumatic growth is the key!
“You are designed for accomplishment, engineered to succeed, and endowed with the seeds of greatness.“
Together we can face a brighter future, and stronger you!
A little about me:
There was a time when the stench of some of my thoughts and framework of thinking landed me in one of the worst pits. Not so today!
My passion is to equip and serve others boldly appreciate growth and the importance of developing and maintaining mental wellness. I grew up a law enforcement kid. My background and current involvement as an educator along with concurrent service as a first responder crisis and grief chaplain have allowed me to assist various agencies, school districts, and communities. I have learned the value and importance of preparation and activation of emergency plans. I seek to help educators and school counselors realize the importance of having long-range aftercare protocol in place as part of emergency management plans. enjoy
Whether it is traumatic stress, re-entry for communities, schools, or at work following tragic events, navigating the “aftermath” means providing ongoing training for the benefit of those impacted.
What I teach I do with high-quality content and as a success story and ambassador of hope.
While I hold various degrees and certifications, continuing education in the field and continuing research keeps me growing and able to serve as a guest media expert in conflict resolution. The bottom line is that outer dynamics of conflict always have internal roots. I help to identify harmful roots that can destroy, families, careers, and communities if left neglected and empower people to realize the pain can either be productive or destructive. We all have a choice. I help people break the cycle of hurt people hurting people and provide vision and skills to help individuals be one that becomes free to help others to live in freedom.
There is no shame in invisible wounds. The tragedy is being bound by the fear and pain of such wounds and no way of knowing how to break free.
