"I love Lisa's work and her detail and clarity as a teacher. I understand so much more watching and listening to Lisa than I have in a couple of years of trying to learn things on YouTube. I've experienced so many of the issues that were in this class and I am so thankful to have had Lisa explain them all away!”
