What Our Students Are Saying

Don’t just take it from us, let our students do the talking!

“Taking the Infidelity Recovery Coaching Program has given me the expert knowledge and insight I need to put in my toolbox to assist the couples who decided to stay but just don’t know how. I am trained as a Marriage and Family Therapist, but this program gave me more detail on how to deal with affairs instead of just knowledge about them. This is going to be a big enhancement for my Practice and the clients I serve.”


Renelle E. Nelson

I am now also regularly interviewed by local TV and media, and getting known as the expert in my local area.
