"Carolyn's online courses exceeded my need for CEU's. I felt as though I was experiencing the rare gift of sitting in a consultation group soaking up the guidance and wisdom only a clinician with decades of experience treating eating disorders can offer. Carolyn's courses inspired me with fresh ideas to incorporate in my private practice. Much like a beloved book, I will come back to these courses to reinvigorate my clinical work.

Thank you, Carolyn!"
