“I really appreciated Sheri’s engaging manner + use of clear examples to explain the concepts being taught. I also really appreciated her focusing on using DBT across client issues Vs. just for BPD.”

“Thoroughly enjoyed and learned a lot. Great mix of theory with application. Sheri is very well spoken, knowledgeable and someone easily relatable as a therapist myself. Too often presenters can be too clinical of narcissistic in nature. Despite being relatable, the info presented is in depth of graduate level instruction. Thanks!”
