Working with Dr. Marcie

Hello - I'm Dr. Marcie

For over 20 years I’ve helped families and schools change challenging behaviors. My work includes the preschoolers who won’t sit still, to tweens who are defiant and disrespectful, to the teen who has ODD and/or ADHD. Realistic, action based tools are my speciality and results in happier families and more positive classroom environments.

After 15 years of transforming thousands of classrooms and families, I began helping businesses expand their reach, increase their profit margin, and create healthier working environments through behavior change. From entrepreneurs who are just starting out, to multi-million dollar corporations, I provide realistic behavioral change strategies that enhance company culture, build stronger client relationships, and improve internal protocols.

My passion to create healthy, thriving families, classrooms and teams comes from the challenges and triumphs I’ve faced in my own life. 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 my academic success, I went on to start my own company, Behavior and Beyond, based in New York City. The services I provide have given me the opportunity to travel around the world consulting VIP clients, providing school wide trainings and workshops, and presenting as a keynote speaker on multiple platforms. I have LOVED sharing about the power of behavior across the world!

I know there is always an answer! I became confident of this through my studies of human behavior and insight I gained through personal experiences. I know the best answers may require creativity, need to include action steps, and are always easier with an encouraging helping hand. From my childhood, I learned to be fiercely dedicated to learning to be resilient, and to remain creative. I’m grateful to use these skills in each of my consultations, trainings, workshops and keynotes!
