This is a workshop that teachers should also take! I would refer you to all individuals dealing with people. You were great!


I really learned a great deal! It has allowed me to evaluate myself. I will use this for my family as well!


I am a new youth advocate and the techniques I have learned today can be applied to my new career.


Everything mentioned today was very useful. Especially since its my 1st day. This was a great way to prepare me for WHAT IS AHEAD!


I love what I do, and I always like to learn new ways to help my students to be successful. You are a great motivational speaker.



Very helpful. One can sense your passion when you speak. Thank you



“You gave all of us a chance to discuss common behaviors and diagnose what strategies may help.”


“I thought you were great! I only wish it could have been a longer workshop!”


“On behalf of Mental Health America of the Heartland, I would like to thank you for giving an excellent presentation on “Using REBT in the Diagnosis and Treatment of Children & Teens with Mood Disorders” on August 20, 2009. Everyone enjoyed the program and found it very helpful. I thought you did a wonderful job of engaging the audience. The practical examples were easy to understand and overall the program was rated as very useful. We appreciate your willingness to share your knowledge and expertise.”

- Stacy Davis, Director, Mental Health Promotion.


“Dacia, Thank you for your presentation, it was awe inspiring. You are one of the most dynamic speakers that I have had the privilege of hearing.”

-Ms. Douglas, Missouri School Counselors Association Workshop Participant.


“The Anger Management Training provided by Second Wind was very successful. It really made a difference with our students. We want them back!”
-Ms. Green, Elementary School Principal


“You were right on target with your suggestion and I have been told that it was the BEST professional development many had been to”
-Ms Schaaf, Lead Counselor, KCMSD


“I have nothing but positive things to say about the training. The transformation has been phenomenal with our students.”
-Lead Counselor – KCMSD


“Dacia, I just wanted to say thank you thank you thank you for last week’s training. You had a tough crowd at a tough time of the year. I know that they found the information to be valuable or they wouldn’t be wanting the teachers to receive it as well. Hopefully we will be scheduling subsequent trainings for the next school year.”   -Deidre Anderson, Director of At Risk Programs -Hickman Mills School District Professional
