“I went to a training on parenting teenagers, and left feeling like I had suddenly been given a key that unlocked my 13 year-old daughter’s world."

 

"I needed to have supervision that was not just about if my paperwork was completed and had I called people back. I wanted to talk about my own goals for development, and learn new techniques and expand my clinical lens. I wanted supervision to be about my learning to hone my skills, and that is exactly what I got. My supervision with Liz makes me a better therapist and I continue to grow as a practitioner."

“I attended a training on using new ideas to reach those “rip your hair out” kids in pre-school and left feeling so inspired to try new ideas! I looked forward to going to work the next day!”
