I’m Dr. Steve Parese, author of the TACT2 and TBM programs.

I am a specialist in crisis interventions for challenging populations, including at-risk youth, former offenders, and welfare to work individuals. Currently an author, teacher, and international speaker, I have worked as a wilderness counselor in the mountains of North Carolina, special education teacher in Maryland’s suburbs, and university professor in Washington, DC.

For the past 25 years, my wife Carolyn and I have lived in the small mountain town of Danbury, NC.
