PRAXIS with Integrity Consulting

Established in 2001, PRAXIS with Integrity supports and promotes interactive training. We are dedicated to excellence in the fields of the helping profession though training, research, and consulting services.  Our approach is fun, informative, and effective in creating change of attitude and practice. Our methods and materials are designed to help individuals and agencies achieve a high level of competence and confidence necessary to meet current societal needs. We create customized training with post-training technical assistance and fidelity implementation support.

We have a strong belief that all people possess the necessary ability to change their own life. Through our partnering with others we empower leadership, front-line providers, families, and youth.  We encourage them to utilize their current and past lived experiences to create the life they want for themselves and those they influence directly and indirectly.  Our company embodies the true definition of “PRAXIS”. Praxis (or practice) takes truth from merely a conceptual idea to practical action and reflection. The gap between text and the world. The difference between things that need to be done, rather than taking action to get them done. The act of engaging for the sake of self-discovery, application, realization and practicing ideas in everyday living.

 “Do unto others as you would have others do unto others”
