My practice was already very successful, but since RLT certification, it's skyrocketed. I had to close my practice to new clients. It's also allowed me to be more selective about the clients that I work with. And I'm re-energized by the work: I used to be worn out working with couples, but now I love it. Success and making a difference is a powerful antidote to burnout!”
