About

I provide individual coaching to help you organize, plan, and follow-through with your work or activities. Whether a student or an adult, sessions are individually curtailed to adjust to the areas that may be impacted, such as course content, work productivity, or job performance. I can teach middle school, high school, and college students concepts about learning and memory. Specifically how memory operates and how to use skills to enhance retention of academic material aides in preparing for exams as well as improving in exam performance.
I also can assist school-based threat assessment teams evaluate and manage individual threat cases. I provide assistance for cases that are complex or require an expert opinion to support school team conclusions about threat potential, threat management, and educational management (discipline, intervention, etc.). Threat Monitoring Plans can be developed.
I provide a unique specialty in coaching persons who have memory, working memory difficulties, and deficits in executive functioning. Teaching strategies with encouragement is an important aspect of coaching. Having worked as a school psychologist, I offer consultation services to families, schools, and advocates related to special education issues.

Joseph Holifield's Groups

College Study Skills

Dr. Holifield has taken his years of teaching and advising college students, combined it with his expertise in executive functioning and memory, and developed a study strategies seminar for college students. The sessions are in a classroom format, rather a traditional group therapy approach. Skills and strategies are introduced weekly with the opportunity to practice and apply the new skills to current coursework.
