I recommend this program because of the open forum in learning about being a counselor. The interaction of La Tanya with the participants; her transparency and willingness to pour into each person individually. She makes sure that you have a clear understanding of the material before moving to the next chapter. There is so much more offered than what you can imagine. Not only does she inspire you to “do it afraid”, but she also pushes you out of your comfort zone and motivates you to dismiss all the doubting and strive to reach your goal.

Her insight and passion for what she does is genuine and she imparts so much into each person without asking anything in return. I am so thankful that I had the opportunity to be a part of the Christian Counseling classes and received my certification. It was a great experience!
