Motivational Interviewing

Motivational Interviewing:  How do people change, and how can we best assist them in the change process?  Motivational interviewing, an evidence-based intervention for supporting behavior change, offers a unique lens and practical strategies.  MI can be used to support people in cutting back or quitting drugs and alcohol, increasing exercise, taking better care of health, engaging in needed therapy, following medical advice, and more.

As a member of the international Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers (MINT), I provide training and consulting to support providers in learning this powerful approach.  I work with diverse professions including psychotherapists, peer coaches, case managers, physicians, physical therapists, emergency response personnel, and tobacco cessation experts. I enjoy tailoring training to the needs and culture of specific groups. All trainings are interactive, experiential, and skills-based; you won’t be sitting silently listening to me read powerpoint slides to you for hours!
