I appreciate this course and how it broke the information down into easy-to-digest pieces. It had me thinking about different components to set up my practice.

The course was mostly very thorough. It addressed areas that many therapists have not considered-- but should. The role plays were very helpful. Both presenters addressed topics that need to be talked about in much more depth in our professions.

Excellent course for therapists new and seasoned in using telehealth in their practice. Really admire Amanda and Michelle's willingness to be vulnerable and provide case examples as well as personal experiences in understanding application of material. Already planning to make good use of the handouts provided both in my own practice and with supervisees. Thank you.
