"During my 17 years as a LMHC, I have attended many lectures, seminars and workshops. The Qualified Clinical Supervision Training facilitated by Doctor Salazar, was without doubt, the best I have attended. The information was delivered in an excellent manner. The exercises were both fun and educational. Doctor Salazar displayed a unique ability of keeping attendees engaged while maintaining a keen focus on imparting understanding and learning, with richness, relevance and professionalism. At the end of the program, I felt enthused, energized, eager and confident to begin Supervising Interns. I highly recommend this Training."
