Testimonials

Gift of multiplied learning

“Participating as a student and contributor in a collective environment has both strengthened my confidence as a therapist and my passion for narrative.

Working and learning alongside of these diverse individuals has given me the gift of multiplied learning as every single member brings their own experiences and stories.

This collective and practice opportunity has been unique to any other throughout my training.”
