In response to the evolving situation with COVID-19, Training Group programs have transitioned away from in-class group sessions to alternate delivery methods and in some cases are rescheduling upcoming classes. Information pertaining to specific programs can be found on each program web page.
Thank you for your patience during this unprecedented time. The safety of clients, staff and their families are our top priority.
Individuals interested in our programs are welcome to contact us for further details. We will update our website and social media platforms as information becomes available.
