What past attendees are saying:
“Michelle is a vibrant, compassionate and very knowledgeable therapist. In addition to her many years of experience, she offers couples and individuals so many opportunities to grow stronger, happier, and more authentically themselves.” ~Gail Gabriel, MFT
“Michelle is a highly skilled teacher. Her style is clear, informative and well paced. I particularly like the way she models excellent communication skills by encouraging audience participation. On many occasions I have heard other couples therapists attribute their confidence in teaching this process to the clarity and detail of Michelle’s presentation.” ~Nancy St. John, Marriage & Relationship Counselor
“I am a much better and more capable couples therapist as a result of your great teaching. I had a good overview when I started, but not a sense of exactly how to put it all into practice. Michelle was great at giving all of us the deeper level knowledge and skill development to practice the model well.” ~ Richard Litvak
