D. , Professor of Psychiatry and Chief, Division of Clinical Psychology, University of Tennessee Center for Health Science
“Out of all the workshops I have gone to in recent memory, this workshop was the most informative AND applicable. I learned many new skills and ways of approaching therapy – something I can actually USE. I find that piece to often be lacking in the seminars I’ve been to. Courtney’s attitude, teaching style, use of role plays, media, etc. it was great!” – R. D., LCSW

“Courtney’s training was something I had looked forward to since reading her article in the Psychotherapy Networker and corresponding with her. She was vital, welcoming and full of helpful information. She had us do small group exercises, which were very useful.” – M. M., LCPC, NCC
