“I have taken Melissa’s Ethics class twice, and will take it again when I need to renew my license. Why would I take an Ethics class more than once with the same instructor? Wouldn’t that be boring or redundant? No, absolutely not. Melissa’s way of approaching what can be rather dry material is invigorating, thought provoking, and engaging. She warmly invites the class to explore ethical issues with fresh perspectives and curiosity.

She gently challenges us to look broader and deeper at everyday encounters. She supports us with incisive questions and pertinent information. In 20 years of practice, I have taken my share of Ethics classes, as well as having been an instructor myself. Melissa’s engaging manner makes the material come alive.”

– Cari R., LMBT

“I could have taken an online ethics course, but I chose to do that class in person and am glad I did. Nothing can replace real people with real experiences! I so appreciated the camaraderie and support that we all gave each other. Overall, I’m pleased and looking forward to taking another class with Melissa!”

– Erin P., LMBT
