Testimonials

Cara is not only incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about her work, but she is so caring and empathetic. She shares personal stories that connect to relevant content to provide greater depth and understanding to the teachings. This helps personalize otherwise very clinical topics. I highly recommend taking a course from Cara, you will throughly enjoy it and be sad when it’s over!
