What people are saying:

 Covid had made me so depressed. CBTI taught me how to identify and break out of my stuck-patterns and I am now confident I have developed a system that can withstand the next “life-twist.”


So grateful! I’m able to connect and communicate with my child on a whole new level. I love being a parent again.
