Dr. Rouanzoin, Dr. Gottlieb and our trainers were consistently prepared, excellent presenters, knowledgable and experienced, wise and gracious, open to all questions, responsive and helpful, and I left this final weekend feeling encouraged, empowered, and excited to be a small part of helping others heal. What a gift these trainers and EMDR therapy are to us all!”
