Samuel Mays, Behavioral Coach

I aim to enhance the lives of the individuals that I serve, beginning with a trauma informed perspective. I have compiled a volume of experience working with children, adolescents, and adults with a vast variety of backgrounds, challenges, and life goals. Focusing on building therapeutic rapport, I strive to cultivate safe space that encourages honest transparency and facilitates a pragmatic approach to problem solving. I welcome learning new stories and empowering each person to draw on their resilience in order to realize the value they contribute while striving to achieve success as defined by them.

What is a Behavior Coach?
A Behavior Coach works with individuals to identify, target, and eliminate disruptive and/or inhibiting behaviors and replace those behaviors with prosocial behaviors and actions. Some of the challenges and related disorders that a behavior coach can aid individuals with are depression, anxiety, high functioning autism, ADHD, OCD and other related disorders disorders. A behavior coach overall teaches and makes suggestions to help individuals (and families) make positive changes.
