Behavioral Thoughts

Welcome to my blog. I am a behavioral consultant working out of Southern California. I specialize in designing original and individual programs for both youth and adults. I have worked with churches, group homes, adult residential facilities, schools, at-risk youth, DSP staff, and numerous paraprofessionals. I write my posts to be both creative and informational. No matter how random, I want people to learn something from what I write. Also, I have many resources that are beneficial for both students and professionals.

I am Chicago raised and trained, and I pride myself in giving people real interventions that are designed for them and can be understood by anyone. I can explain anything as technical or commonly worded as necessary so that the best work can be done and implemented. As you read this blog, you will see that I love breaking down deep topics of behavior into the simplest terms, which I usually do best through animal behavior and lessons learned from pop culture (e.g., TV, movies, and comics).



I’ve been published!
I co-authored a short book on enhancing your self-worth through actionable steps that are easier to do than you think.
