Hi, I'm Dr. Woody and welcome to! Let's face it, most of us spend most of our waking hours working, yet most of psychology is focused on issues outside of the workplace! My goal is to help you find new and innovative ways to make the work-life experience better, so that you can create a healthier more balanced life! My focus is to help you:

  • Develop your own YOU Plan
  • Create your own opportunities
  • Make better career decisions
  • Be a better colleague and boss
At the end of the day, if you want to make a change you are going to have to put yourself in the "Hot Seat" and ask yourself some tough questions!

The fact is it's no longer about chasing opportunities, it's about creating opportunities! Once you've decided to put yourself in the "Hot Seat" my job is to help get you back out and headed in the right direction!

Good luck,
Dr. Woody
