Testimonials for this Training:

“The class was wonderful! Alex is an amazing instructor!! A lot of wonderful information covered in a manner that people (especially new therapists) can understand. I am so glad that I was able to attend.”

“Each class was packed with information! I learned more in this 18 hour course than any of my grad school psychology courses. It was also helpful to illustrate the difference between sex addiction and chemical dependency issues. My only request is to offer more of these courses.”
