I had an awesome experience with Sabrina M. who was an excellent facilitator so much so that I signed up for Trauma Informed Care, Motivational Interviewing and Solution Focused Brief Therapy next week with Sabrina herself. Thank you so much for the classes and support.

Peter Halas made what could have been a very boring class fun and exciting, while keeping it professional. He had very good time management skills and was very good at communicating. If I had to take the class over, I wouldn't want anyone else to be my instructor!

Super sweet people! The most compassionate and understanding people that'll help you succeed. I love how they give you a chance regardless of what you've been through. If you want to help people... this is the place you want to go! Training was super easy and a lot of fun! Especially if you have Carrie Mitchell as your trainer :) Thank you so much Just 1 Life Services! My experience with you was one I'll never forget <3
