Financial Empowerment Testimonial 

“Thank you for teaching us the financial tools we need to survive in the adult world. We have found the Financial Literacy portion of this course very informative and helpful. Your pleasant, down-to-earth demeanor and good sense of humor have made it feel worthwhile to get out of bed at 7am on a Monday. The tools we are gaining in this program will be useful for the rest of our lives. You have taken an intimidating and sometimes boring subject and made it enjoyable and entertaining. If we can go the next year without being too broke to do a load of laundry, or having to ask my landlord for an extension on my rent, we will owe it to you. Thanks again – the class.”

Understanding Our Emotions Testimonials

“I have learned that it’s okay to allow and respect myself enough to have days off, but also believe in myself enough that I will get through it. The self belief scale was a very eye opening experience for me. I need to work on being less self critical and self defeating. This program was very helpful especially when seeing the difference in the “Knowing Myself” test before and after the sessions. The instructor is very knowledgeable and compassionate. Thank you very much.”

“Since taking this program I have been able to recognize my feelings more effectively and find a healthier way to cope with my emotions and how to handle relationships with others. I learned to honor my commitments and plan to continue to seek self-help opportunities.”

“I have learned good tips on how to handle situations better. That my feelings and emotions are normal and important but how I handle these emotions is also even more important. I need to work on continuing to be positive and to trust and respect myself, especially in situations where I have little control. It helped me express myself and believe I am valuable.”

“I learned a lot about how to effectively communicate my emotions and how to avoid reacting out of anger. I have gotten better at showing when I am hurt instead of just angry. It has helped in every aspect of my life. I always keep in mind how important it is to understand why I am feeling the way I do and keeping in mind the other person’s feelings too. This program has helped me find peace. Thank you.”

Managing Anger and Difficult Emotions Testimonials

“This program showed me I can change. I just need to slow down and think things through. I am going to keep working on myself and actually talk to people about my problems instead of walking away.”

“I learned that no matter the issue, there is no reason to get all worked up about it. It’s great. I think now before acting and just take a breath. I don’t feel as anxious because my thoughts are way different. I’m going to continue to change my habits and let the stress go.”

“I am now aware of negative self talk and to continue to look for the ‘root issue’ that actually makes me feel the way I do. This program has let me know where I am at and that I have essentially been on the right track (which is reassuring) I just needed direction and knowledge on ways to get better. I now try to let things I have no control over go and how to relax to give myself a longer ‘fuse.’
