I’m Sean DeMarco Garcia. The owner/operator of Astrochemistry Consulting. We offer training and coaching sessions in de-escalation and crisis intervention for frontline workers. Our training classes are geared towards how to better serve those in emotional and mental wellness distress. We teach individuals how to humanely deescalate those experiencing an emotional or mental wellness crisis. These skill sets that we teach can be used in most personal and professional interactions. This is detailed my upcoming eBook, “It Isn’t About You”.
My 30+ years’ experience includes serving as a naval veteran, working in sales, working as a police officer, and overseeing the private security department for a hospital.
I became a small business owner because, I fell in love with crisis intervention training and de-escalation as a police officer. I quickly learned that I had a knack for connecting with others using the skills (Active listening, tactical disengagement, diversity management, cultural competence, communication advisement and coping strategies) I had possessed for much of my adult life. I felt good knowing that those in crisis entrusted me to help them. I initially began working as a coach, then became an actor (within scenario-based trainings). I eventually became a certified C.I.T. Coordinator. This led me to form my LLC, create my own program and reach out to other industries (aside from law enforcement) that could benefit from our services.
My late father was a musician. I was with him a lot as he supported our family playing at various venues throughout Detroit. When I was 4 years old, he and my mother formed a production company and record label. He released his one and only recording (to date) under that record label. The song is called "No, I Don't Really Want It". The name of the label was Astro Chemistry Records. I've always loved that name and the logo. So when my dad passed away in 2018, I decided to honor him by taking the name and making it my own. That's where the name AstroChemistry Consulting LLC. comes from.
Our mission is to ensure that each person has the necessary skills to identify and assist those experiencing an emotional or mental health crisis. Ultimately, we want to ensure a safer outcome for all.
