Hi, I'm Hillary Bolter
MSW, LCSW, LCAS
FOUNDER, MI CONSULTANT & TRAINER
I am one of those folks that inherently thinks I have great ideas and solutions for people upon first encounter (Enneagram 1!). I’m ready to jump in and FIX! When I began my MI learning process, I realized just how essential MI was going to be for my energy, effectiveness, and longevity in the helping profession!
Hi, I'm Chris Miles
LEAD MI TRAINER
Hello! I have been a member of the Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers since 2014. MI helps me to empower clients to overcome what gets between them and their innate ability to reach optimal health and happiness and it also helps me to connect more fully with my family and friends. If you practice MI long enough, it becomes a natural part of who you are; I use its spirit every day both professionally and personally.

"Hillary taught a 3-session MI class to a group of animal welfare staff that included staff from admissions, adoptions, and outreach programs. Her enthusiasm and knowledge of the topic made the class a lot of fun, and her ability to closely relate the topics to our own work resulted in an extremely useful training for all who attended. Participants came away feeling less pressure to fix their clients’ lives and with the confidence to start helping clients find their own motivation and reach their own goals. A must-have for animal welfare professionals at any level who work with members of the public!"
