What therapists say about Amy's courses
Amy's presentation highlights the power of enabling students to set their own goals and feel respected, determining what is most meaningful to them as individuals.

- Occupational Therapist

It provided me with samples and lots of ideas that were easy to implement into my sessions with the students.

- OT from New York

The work surrounding goal setting and metacognition has definitely been transformative for me as a clinician and has helped my students actively engage in the therapeutic process. I think you are onto something AMAZING and a critical piece of treatment that yields results!
