About MITC

MITC is owned and operated by Alicia Shiver and Lindsay Worth who are both members of the Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers (MINT) and licensed counselors.  They have diverse and comprehensive experience in training, coaching, and supervising professionals and behavioral health critical supporters and have a combined 35 years of experience working in clinical research, addictions, education, healthcare, and correctional settings.


MITC has received numerous government grants to provide training and education services in New Mexico, USA. We have supported and facilitated two virtual MINT-Endorsed Training of New Trainer programs in 2019 and 2020 with participants attending from 14 countries. We continue to support people in learning and implementing motivational interviewing and have successfully worked with over 6,000 people in our 7 years of business. 

Alicia and Lindsay live in Albuquerque, New Mexico, the home of Motivational Interviewing (MI). They currently work with and learn from William Miller, Ph.D. and Theresa Moyers, Ph.D. in their training and research program. This opportunity, along with years of MI teaching experience, has supported us in training and supporting others in Motivational Interviewing and other evidence-based practices.
