On A Personal Note

Being inquisitive about human behavior since childhood, I committed my professional life to understanding how our deepest behavior and inner psychology shapes and influences our perspectives, actions, decision-making and personal effectiveness.
The consulting approach I created for The Resource Group is a natural extension of who I am and what I know. The approach unfolded incrementally -- with serendipity taking me in directions I could not have anticipated. My background is both eclectic and practical. The service offerings are a good fit for business and professional people who are interested in adding another dimension of understanding and awareness to their business and professional tool kit.
My professional background includes:
·       Ph.D. in clinical psychology
·       Advanced training in analytic, systems, and behavior psychology
·       Twenty-five years experience in business consulting
·     Nine years of study and apprenticeship in the U.S. and Peru in learning and applying traditional   shamanic principles to understanding deeper levels of human behavior.
