How I Got Started Doing Private Interventions
It all started when I received a call from a woman who contacted
me to do investigation and surveillance work, to follow her 17 year
old nephew, who she suspected was doing and possibly dealing drugs.
She was afraid that he would be arrested and ruin his chance of
getting out of his cycle of poor choices, and having a future.
I knew that she was extremely distraught about this young man she
cared about, but simply didn't know how to handle the situation. She
hired me to find out exactly what he was doing, but she really
already knew. After talking to her, I understood that what she
really wanted was someone to try to help him and get through to him
to help him change his life.
I told her about the hundreds of times I have spoken with,
counseled and advised kids on the street while working criminal
cases. I've also been trained as a Correctional Officer and a Deputy
Sheriff, and been involved in many interventions with inmates.
In speaking with that young man, Private Intervention was born.
Myself and my associate Jay felt happy and confident that the
heart-to-heart, guy-to-guy talk we had with this teenager just may
have made him think twice about his options and his future. I know
he was basically a good kid. We spent some time with him and made a
positive impact on him, helping him think about a different path,
and the many other option open to a young kid like himself to make
his life better.
I'm not a PhD or a psychotherapist, but I am a (still)
young man who has street smarts and knows what it is like to learn
the lessons of the streets. I've seen it all, and I know what people
face and how they feel desperate, alone, or out of control.
So whether it is a drug related case or a domestic case, we can
help. We may not be able to fix every problem, but we will offer a
unique way of educating and informing the person in a way they can
related to. And sometimes it really helps them just to know that
someone (you) cared enough to send two tough but sympathetic Private
Investigators to confront them.
