Fantastic

I’m a first year counseling student and I’ve been looking around for related podcasts and this is by FAR the best resource I’ve found. Thank you so so much. Really fantastic!

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.
