What our students are saying about the Wellness Graduate School

Here are comments from some of our students:

This PsyD program has not only helped me gain confidence as an "older" student, but the level of learning and fascinating topics we work on has been motivating and fun! I had been interested for years in going back for a Doctorate Degree but never found just the right program. I am so thankful that this program is exactly what I had been searching for and of course perfect because it was created by my Wellness Institute teachers!

June L. Becker

The Wellness Institute’s master's program has brought me a profound understanding of the relationship all beings have with the divine nature. Studying topics such as codependency, addiction, and relationships in depth and breadth has helped me to develop skills for helping my own clients. It has also enlightened me about my own inner growth process. In the program, academic rigor meets with intellectual and spiritual curiosity to create a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to learn and grow within a nurturing and sustaining community of fellow seekers.

Judi Vitale

The graduate school work really enhanced my Wellness Institute training. It provided a deep theoretical understanding of Wellness techniques and why they are so effective. The grad school also extended my Wellness experience – I became more regular with my self-care, spiritual work, and connections. It was like I was at Wellness every week.
