Student Testimonial: "I highly recommend this extensive yearlong integrated couples and sex therapy training. I particularly appreciated the consultation sessions each week with Walter Brackelmanns and Wendy Cherry, which were helpful for processing my work and giving me the tools to be a better couples therapist. Being in private practice can sometimes feel quite isolating, and having a community of warm, knowledgable fellow therapists to bounce ideas off was a wonderful experience!" ~ Su Lim, MFT
