Frequently Asked Questions

What does the class consist of?

We will do group reflection, personal reflection, and small-group role play. You will be encouraged to bring stories from your own practice, and questions for both me and your fellow classmates. The goal here is to learn from each other, and learn skills that you can take away immediately. Active participation is strongly encouraged!

I’m not a therapist. Can I still take this class?

Of course! Anyone is welcome to attend. We will be focusing on the therapeutic relationship, but there are money lessons in there that everyone can benefit from.

How will I earn CE hours?

Upon successful completion of the class, you will receive a certificate of completion, which you can use when you submit your hours for consideration.

Are you really certified to offer continuing education hours?

Yes! I have been approved by the National Board for Certified Counselors (NBCC) for this class to offer 3 CE hours. My approval number is SP-4315.
