I help citizens and businesses, and I specialize in helping first responders and public safety professionals and their family members, including police officers, correction officers, firefighters, EMS and medical personnel, dispatchers, crime lab technicians, public safety civilian staff, search and rescue volunteers, military personnel, and veterans.

Whether you're representing a business, a public safety agency, or you want individual counseling, one-on-one or group training, or consultation, reach out right now by following these simple steps: (1) Go to the contact tab, (2) let me know your interests and the best way to contact you, (3) discuss whether your request is counseling-related, group or individual training, and/or consultation, and your general location.
Note: The majority of individual, one-on-one coaching, training, and counseling is done at a private office or at a firearms range in Farmington, Kaysville, or Layton, Utah, or online. Public safety agencies also host many of our classes. We also occasionally travel out of state to teach classes. Just mention that when you make contact.
