“I’ve attended the Louisville Group for three years and continue to grow and develop as a therapist as a result. The skills and supervision I’ve received have positively impacted my practice and helped me to be more effective in treating my clients. If you want to grow your practice, attend this training.” 

Eric Baker, Jr., LCSW.

“This training has tremendously enhanced my clinical skills and contributed to improved patient outcomes, and increased confidence for myself as a therapist. The group modality offers a safe and supportive environment for learning and practicing new skills as well as valuable clinical supervision of existing cases. I highly recommend this training to any psychotherapist who is looking for effective ways to acquire new skills and get peer support for ongoing practice.”

Merya Wolfe, MA, LCSW

“Vann Joines is the therapist’s therapist … his depth of knowledge, skill and clinical experience has been invaluable to my growth as a therapist. The Certification Training in TA and Redecision is the foundation from which my clinical confidence has emerged … and success as a practitioner has blossomed. I honestly don’t know how I could do this work without Vann’s teaching and mentoring.” 

Craig Herink, Marriage & Family Therapist, Louisville, KY
