Testimonials from presentation evaluations and social media.
"The issues presented are real issues and useful to my practice."
"This was an excellent presentation. I specifically enjoyed Laura Jacobs. Her presentations style was great. She was knowledgeable and thoughtful. Her case study was excellent and really encouraged therapist to ask more questions about their motivation and how they are dealing with counter transference issues. Would love to see her present again."
"I appreciated the vocabulary lesson and more meaningful information on transgender and gender non-conforming issues. Before attending your conference, I may have had difficulty writing that simple sentence, but after listening, I am gaining confidence to write and talk about these issues with students and colleagues."
Laura was very knowledgeable and you could tell that being able to educate and share this information was important to her.
It provided me with a first hand perspective of someone who has both transitioned and is in the counseling field. It provided me with new data to share and support perspectives.
Laura, I just wanted to let you know that I listen to Michael Aronoff [on SiriusXM Doctor Radio] regularly and always learn from him. I just love his subjects and love how he speaks to people. I tuned in while you were on and almost shut it off, but did not because I wanted to keep an open mind to the subject. I am so glad I listened to the whole show. It taught me a whole lot about transgender, which is a subject I just never tried to understand. I understand gay and lesbian, just not transgender and why people would want to change from man to women or woman to man. It helped me to listen to the callers and how you responded to them. You are very professional and I think you are the right person to work with these individuals! I now understand how these individuals feel and what they go through in life. I just want to say that I am glad that there are people like you to help them walk through their difficult journey. Everybody needs to be happy in their own skin no matter what it takes. And thanks to Dr. Arnoff for having you on his wonderful show.
