Life Changing

“This journey has been empowering, inspiring, and transformative, and has changed my way of living and being. The embodiment of SPT has been the nourishment that allowed me to grow in both my personal and professional worlds. Harmoniously, as I have grown, so has my relationship with my clients, and my ability to help them do the same. SPT has been my grounding roots, a guiding light, and a breath of fresh air!” – Malia Segal


Certification gave me a community that took me out of isolation, gave me a mirror that showed me the strength I hold, and created a space that safely nurtured the wounds I held and now allows me to heal others at a deeper level than ever before. Since learning SPT, I have not had the thought, “What am I doing in here?” I feel like I have all the skills and knowledge to know exactly what I am doing in each session.” – Kellee Clark


SPT offers the gift of manifesting the true expression of self, for both our young clients and ourselves. We learn to engage fully in relationship. We connect and become that which fosters trust, growth, and healing. My journey through the SPT Certification process has been the most profound learning experience of my life. I am forever transformed.” – Mary Telep
