Thanks so much for the fantastic, spur-of-the-moment moderation you provided for our panel discussion. Your discussion of authenticity and introspection was wonderful.  The combination of your scholarly argument with your personal life story absolutely floored me. It’s that kind of openness that makes me think all of this talk of inclusion may be more than just talk one day. Your presentation reminded me how far I have to go in my efforts to own who I am. Thank you.

Doug did a very good job of reading the crowd during his presentation, adapting his style as needed. After the first few minutes, he captured the attention of the audience while cementing himself as a subject matter expert. Doug provided an overview of counseling services that were of particular importance to the supervisors attending, and followed it up with WHY counseling and consultation can be an important tool for supervision and employees alike.

Doug is amazing as always... I really appreciate Doug’s energy and passion for his profession.  He keeps the attention of the audience and is very intelligent. I would not hesitate to attend any presentation he was giving.


I received more positive feedback on this presentation than on any other we’ve had over the last 9 years. Doug showed that he loves to teach others. He offered great reminders on how to reduce stress, as well as practical steps to get there.


This was the most engaging and effective presentation I’ve heard in my 34 years of service with three different agencies.

Doug brings significant credibility, professionalism, and expertise to his work.  As the CA CISM Coordinator, I was very satisfied with his early intervention and support, which helped stabilize employees, family members, and the volunteer departments involved. The District Ranger and Division Chief stated that this was the most professional and helpful CISM support they have ever received. Thank you!

Doug is truly an engaging & dynamic speaker with the professional credentials that quickly earned the respect of the audience.


Doug's presentation was stellar, very comprehensive, and came from a perspective of inclusion- taking different backgrounds and cultural identifications into consideration. We were especially impressed with his list of coping strategies to help us get through the holidays.
