Working with Dr. Marcie

Hello - I'm Dr. Marcie

For over 20 years I've helped families and schools change challenging behaviors. From preschooler who won't sit still to tween who is defiant and disrespectful to the teen who has ODD and ADHD. My realistic, action based approach results in less tantrums, less yelling and less fighting. There are more happy family dinners, more classroom instruction and more magic moments.

For the past 5 years I have used these same skills to help businesses grow. From entrepreneurs who are just starting out to multi-million dollar cooperations, behavior knowledge goes a long way. I help enhance company culture, build stronger client relationships and improve internal protocols.

My passion comes from my own struggles. School was not my strong suite. Spelling was hard, social studies was confusing and reading was exhausting. Overcoming my own learning challenges and earning my doctorate from Teacher College, Columbia University before I was 30, led to my unique perspective.

After that, I went on to start my own company, Behavior and Beyond. It's based in New York City and takes me around the world. From meeting with individual VIP clients in their hometown to school wide trainings to keynotes to thousands, I love sharing about behavior.

I know there is always an answer! Partially because I studied human behavior. Partially because of my own experiences. I know that answer may require creativity. I know the best answers include action steps. And I know it is always easier with an encouraging helping hand. From my childhood I learned to be fiercely dedicated to learning, to be resilient and to be creative. These are skills I am grateful to use everyday!
