“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.”
“The course has been really evocative and generative for me – a really useful vehicle to construct my practice with sex addicts.”
“Alex is the perfect presenter for this material. The mix of clinical information and actual case presentation was perfect.”
“I learned so much, not only about addiction but couples therapy too!”
