Our consultants are nationally renowned experts specializing in public policy, child support law, child support financials, business process redesign, child support guidelines reviews, strategic planning, and intergovernmental issues. We successfully support our clients through transformative program enhancements and service delivery changes. Our services have a broad reach and deliver positive results.

We work with agencies to analyze service delivery systems at local, regional, and state levels and provide detailed strategies to improve system efficiency, effectiveness, and customer service.

We offer tailored training to further assist child support professionals. Some of our courses are now available online and on-demand. We understand the importance of providing consistent professional development for optimal service delivery. Our goal is to reduce barriers to accessing the information needed for child support professionals to do their job and grow in their careers.

“PK delivered outstanding trainings on motivational interviewing, customer service, unintended bias, and secondary trauma for my staff. The highlight was their two-day, highly interactive, Collaborative Negotiations training. The Collaborative Negotiations training had great professional development content but, in addition, was an excellent bonding opportunity for staff. Folks seemed to genuinely have a good time and made new connections. It was perfect!”

Natalie Dillon, Child Support Services Director, Yolo, Sutter and Colusa Counties
