Hi, I’m Bradley. I provide integrated behavior support, training, and consulting for folks like you – people in organizations that are struggling to provide services for clients with complex needs – in an ever-changing economic environment, with external pressures that continually ask you to do more with less. I combine best practices from trauma-informed care, understanding autism, and mental health for a whole-person approach to human services, disability supports, and community healing.
My adventures have lead me to work in foster care and adoption, community living, education, residential treatment, and intermediate care facilities. Every success that I’ve been a part of has had, at its core, committed professionals facing hard truths with innovation, connection, and instinct — the abilities are clearly there, if we can get out of the way and let the best parts of ourselves lead.
I’ve learned again and again that when we give ourselves permission to lean into empathy, our wisdom and intelligence comes through, and we are able to move mountains as groups of professionals.
Everyone from the CEO to the direct support staff to the person being served contributes to the world of your organization. I have a history of building trust and inspiring people to bring their best selves to the work every day. I’ve worked with well-established leaders of their industry looking to polish their strengths, evolving organizations seeking to get ahead of upcoming trends, and agencies teetering on the edge of calamity that transform their work to become forces for positive change in their field.
I’m certified by The National Association for the Dually Diagnosed (NADD) as a specialist in mental wellness for people with intellectual disabilities, and am honored to serve NADD as the chair of the national committee for dual diagnosis specialists, and to visit and accredit organizations working in dual diagnosis. Often, I act as a “middle man” between front-line workers and the clinicians in the background, helping them to speak each other’s language and figure out what’s really going on. It’s a responsibility I take very seriously — being the non-clinician in the room, and helping the different levels of the team to connect and collaborate.
I bet you have a story to tell of the lessons you have learned in your adventures, too. Drop me a message — let me know what has brought you this far, and what the next challenge is on the horizon.
