“Now that I've had a couple days to process the training experience, I'd like to send you a very heartfelt thank-you. I learned so much and really appreciate your supportive, evocative, affirming instructional style look at me using my MI vocabulary! You created an environment where it felt safe to go out on a limb and try new things that felt uncomfortable. It felt so empowering and inspiring to walk away from your training feeling like I actually have the skills I need to start putting MI into practice.”

What is 

Motivational Interviewing?

With over 1200 research studies,Motivational Interviewing is an evidence-based practice and has been successfully applied for decades. 

What are the

benefits of

Motivational Interviewing?

  • Feel more effective with your Clients
  • Keep the burden of change OFF YOUR SHOULDERS!
  • Work Less Hard-Get Better Results
  • Be a more confident helping professional
  • Improve Client Outcomes (It's evidence-based y'all)
  • Know what to say when clients backpedal on change
  • Feel equipped for pre-contemplative clients (you know, when it's clear change would help, but they can't see it!)  

As a Coordination Center that receives 800 calls a month, data drives many decisions. After reviewing the number of needs our Coordinators were identifying compared to other markets, we felt we were missing the mark. After Bolter Consulting conducted Motivational Interviewing training for all our staff, results happened in 30 days. We went from learning about an average of 1.2 needs per client to 2.5 needs per client, demonstrating we were engaging more effectively from the first phone call. Learning and utilizing Motivational Interviewing skills has made our entire team better, thus creating better health in the community!!

My Journey

​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!


I have been a member of the Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers (MINT) since 2011. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker & Addiction Therapist and absolutely delight in helping individuals, groups, and organizations learn the essential skills of Motivational Interviewing.

"Why you should stop trying to convince clients to change."

Abundance Practice Building

A conversation with Allison Puryear at  Abundance Practice Building about using MI to help with self-motivation in your practice.

"Despite being a seasoned therapist, I knew I could improve my work by becoming less directive with my clients.  I knew allowing them to do their own work in sessions would enrich their experience and create deeper growth.  I became aware of this after getting supervision from an incredible supervisor who used Motivational Interviewing as a model. I knew I could refine my skill set with more training in this model and started looking. Lo and behold, Hillary offered a 6-week group training group, which was just the kind of training I was hoping for: short and compacted. As things often happen as you study, you realize what you don't know and I am signing up for more training with Hillary!


Hillary is a bright, sparkly, and most importantly,  knowledgeable trainer who knows MI inside and out!  She is present, patient, and embodies the MI spirit.  I've witnessed her consistently teach and reinforce learning by noticing the therapist's growth in an affirming way. She's the kind of trainer that's the real deal - I know she is a wonderful therapist and she inspires me to be a better one each week!"
