Matt, 43, is a Senior Executive in a multi-national, global financial firm. He rose steadily and mastered each position, despite nagging thoughts each step of the way that he was way out of his league, not due to his education or knowledge, but his ability to relate to others. "If they only knew who I truly was ..." became his increasingly negative self-talk as each new position demanded more knowledge of "people skills" and how to manage and motivate his team.

Assessments were integral when we began our work together. They provided him with a perspective on his personality style.  Together we created strategies enabling him to build and develop his Emotional Intelligence with the knowledge of how his personality could assist him.  Within his team as his appreciation grew for the personality styles of those whom worked for him - and to whom to reported.  He gained respect for the styles of others, given their personality preferences and through further assessments, determine where he wanted to go from his present position with a more clarity and focus.


Of course, the value of an assessment isn't to simply to take the "test" but rather to understand the results so that they help you changes in your life and help you reach your goals.  I'll help you interpret the nuances of your assessment results so they bring meaning to your personal and professional development.

Our work follows a tested, results-oriented path:  As a Solutions-Focused, Masters level psychotherapist, I'm able to help select the proper assessment for your situation. We then interpret the results and develop a strategy.  The importance of an assessment truly is what you do with it!  I invite you to take a look below at some of the assessments I offer.

I've found the following assessments particularly effective (and have used them extensive) for entrepreneurs, professionals (lawyers, physicians).

MBTI® Step II Profile - Form Q (R)
MBTI® Step II Interpretive Report - Form Q (R)
MBTI® Communication Style Report (R)
MBTI® Personal Impact Report (R)

I've found various MBTI assessments (above) to be highly effective in my work in Emotional and Social Intelligence. Self-awareness, as one of the primary concepts in EI is paramount to our relationship with ourselves and others and the MBTI has proven to provide an excellent starting point for my clients in understanding their personality preferences.

Personality "typing", a concept originally developed by Carl Jung, a Swiss psychiatrist and founder of Analytic Psychology, features individuation as its central concept. Dr. Jung postulated that people fall into distinct "categories" of preferences.  The MBTI® brings depth and meaning to these 16 personality types by helping you understand how they have contributed to the choices you've made in relationship building, career choice and more.  The 16 personality types are combinations of the following four categories resulting in your unique four-letter "type" such as ISTJ, ENFP, etc.:
  • Introvert vs. Extrovert
  • Sensing vs. Intuition
  • Thinking vs. Feeling
  • Judging vs. Perceiving
The Step II Interpretive Report helps you gain appreciation for your preferences - and personality - by providing insight into how you might best use it to reach your goals.

Thomas-Kilmann Conflict Mode Instrument Profile and Interpretive Report (Assessment)
Introduction to Conflict Management (Book)

Are you effective at handling conflict? Do you find that you need greater insight into how - and when - to handle conflict? Do you find that you avoid conflict altogether?   Conflict is inevitable in both our personal and professional lives.  The Thomas-Kilmann Conflict Mode Instrument (TKI) helps you gain insight into how five primary conflict modes affect you, your relationships and your group dynamics and how to select the most effective style for a given situation.  In addition, the insight you'll gain from the TKI helps you safely begin a productive dialogue surrounding conflict.  The five conflict modes are:
  • Competing
  • Collaborating
  • Compromising
  • Avoiding (much more prevalent that you would think) and
  • Accommodating
Mastering the skill of effectively handling conflict speaks both to our Emotional Intelligence (self-awareness and self-regulation) as well as to our Social Intelligence (social awareness and organizational management).
