The classes and materials used are phenomenal. I have learned so much about counseling and have gained hands-on experience conducting counseling. Specifically, group, theories, and career counseling afforded these experiences and they really helped. The group course was literally life-changing for me. I was wowed at the end of the course and have never experienced this before. There is also support when needed and help with navigating classes etc.
