Grad student

I’m a grad student for school psychology and this has been an amazing podcast in training me for my counseling sessions. I had feedback that I was advanced in only my 2nd session, all thanks to this incredible podcast!

Fantastic Study/Refresher Resource!

I’m coming off of an unscheduled, extended break in my LMFT Master’s program due to COVID-related changes, and this podcast has been an incredible resource that’s helped me to dive back in and re-familiarize myself with theories, terminology, and an appropriate headspace as a mental health professional. Grateful for this informative and digestible podcast.
