Welcome! My name is
Wicks. I am the owner and principle provider of the
professional services at Alliance Center for Change (AC4C).
For those with particular emotional and relational needs,
counseling in a confidential setting
For those seeking help with their careers or finding
that offers satisfaction, financial rewards, and
opportunities for achievement, a record of
successfully assisting hundreds of individuals stands for
For companies that are struggling in some way or simply
wanting to increase their productivity and market share,
that is a cut above the rest and a track record of proven
effectiveness can be counted on.
a seasoned behavioral health professional with advanced
training and education, I continue to find
human beings and their endeavors very fascinating. I have
studied extensively and sought research-based,
data-driven, experientially-tested, and sometimes innovative ways to help people
chart new courses for both their individual lives and within
the world of work.
A summary of my years as a professional might look like
this -- I have been an evaluator and counselor to both
children and adults, an educator
of graduate students, a supervisor of other professionals, a trainer in business circles, a
seminar leader and workshop presenter, a career management
specialist, a personal and executive coach, and a consultant
to commercial businesses and other organizations.
In my work as a counselor, I am motivated to bring the
best that psychology and modern technology offer to
help others correctly understand the predicaments of their
lives and utilize workable, solution-focused therapy
for correction. I ally with individuals, couples, families,
and groups – people of all ages and all walks of life – to
bring about lasting change.
As a career management specialist, I recognize that
many individuals find career decisions very
difficult to make. So, I try to make the difficult easier
and give the out-placed, the disenchanted, the misplaced,
and the wise who want to work at their best the guidance and
tangible support they need to find and succeed at the professions or roles
that suit them. Accordingly, I offer a full range
of career services -- from testing and counseling… to job
search strategies… to personal marketing… to career coaching.
This effort to help people find satisfying career paths,
emerged out of many years as a consultant to various companies
where I was asked to assess executive
talent, strengthen hiring decisions, train
personnel, mentor key individuals, and/or solve performance problems.
I learned through that experience how very important it is
for both individual workers and organizations to achieve the
best fit possible.
As a consultant, I am able to draw on this
experience -- plus my skills, special training, business
acumen, and personal qualities -- to help many organizations
realize managed-growth, reorganizations, mid-course
corrections, improved productivity, and greater prosperity.
Overall, my ultimate goal is “excellence” for myself and
others -- be that personal, vocational, or corporate.
