Areas of Expertise

Veteran Transition

Successfully transitioning from military service to life out of uniform can prove difficult for anyone.  With an increasing number of veterans in the workforce and pursuing higher education, successfully integrating veterans into academic and corporate culture is important for long-term success.  Creating greater understanding of military culture is a key component of Michelle's research.  Improve your success by leveraging her knowledge.

Building Resilience

Just like physical fitness, mental and emotional resilience is a skill that is best trained before it is needed.  With over ten years coaching teams and individuals to succeed in high-stress situations, Michelle possesses the skills and experience to increase your team's performance, while reducing the risk of burn-out and employee turn-over.

Suicide Prevention

Michelle has extensive experience in suicide prevention at both the intervention and program management level. Create a more resilient organization that is able to understand the predictors, signs, and prevention of suicide.

Workplace Violence PRevention

Both Michelle and Corey have experience in crisis management at the organizational and individual levels.  Michelle's work is included in a workplace violence public service product geared toward helping organizations plan ahead in order to mitigate risk.  Presentations focus on building a cohesive workplace and providing resources for dealing with crisis. 

Career Choice and Pathways

Having worked as a school counselor and career advisor, Corey can share her methods for finding one’s spark and manifesting that into a productive and enjoyable career. She can work with your team to learn more about themselves and how they fit into the world of work.

Peer Relationships

Navigating relationships is a difficult process for anyone. You can learn how to support your students and children as they embrace their unique personality while respecting the individual nature of others. Corey’s work as a teacher and counselor in the public schools is at the forefront of our workshops about peer issues and relationships.


Parents, teachers, and students often misunderstand the true nature of bullying versus normal conflict. We can help you teach your children to deal with conflict effectively while learning to be more confident and assertive (as opposed to aggressive).  In addition, we help children learn how to handle true bullying in order to be safe and healthy.


Based on the research and work of three-time Nobel Peace Prize nominee, Dr. Thomas Gordon as well as the basic tenets of Attachment Theory, Corey can help parents learn to effectively communicate with their children in order to make their own needs heard as well as learn to listen to their children’s inner messages. Some of the cooperative skills that Dr. Gordon can teach us include:

  • Your children will feel free to discuss their problems and concerns with you instead of withdrawing.
  • They will learn self-discipline, self-control and an inner sense of personal responsibility.
  • You will learn how to work with each other instead of against each other.
  • You’ll experience fewer angry outbursts and more problem-solving.
  • Everyone can participate in rule-setting so all will feel motivated to comply with the rules.
  • Fewer power struggles–less tension, less resentment, more fun, more peace, more love. (, accessed 2017)

Communication Skills (Teachers, Parents, Co-workers etc.)

Utilizing the work of Dr. Thomas Gordon, Dr. Daniel Siegel, as well as widely used personality inventories and Attachment concepts, Corey can help your team learn to assess their own strengths, weakness, and work style in order to effectively cooperate and understand one another. For the educators, Corey will tailor the workshop to teach your team how to communicate with students in a way that they “feel felt” and want to listen (Siegel, 2010).


Both Corey and Michelle have a wealth of experience with writing. They each worked for a university Writing Center, and now work with graduate counseling students as they learn clinical and research writing skills. In addition, Corey taught Research writing and Advanced Placement English for 9 years.
