Success Stories

Student Testimonials


What is so very true for me right now is how completely impressed I am with the technology displayed and taught in this Online Therapy Course!! …

I am finding the course interesting and informative and look forward to the rest of my journey combining therapy and technology…

She was very knowledgeable. She was on task.

She is very direct, knowledgeable, fun and generous with the information.

She kept thing very interesting and moving. She responded to questions well. The information she shared was tremendously helpful and she introduced topics that I had never really considered.

She is brilliant, listened well, and answered the question that the student was asking.

It was impressively high-tech, easy to follow, and very thorough.

She covered a lot of content effectively in a short amount of time by providing links to the information, walking us through the content, and then leaving time for questions. She did a great job navigating the ambiguities that exist with the limited regulation of coaching for licensed therapists and for conducting coaching/therapy online. It was also helpful that she was very sensitive to the needs of professionals who are therapists and also life coaches.

DeeAnna is an engaging and wonderful teacher.

“I would recommend the DCC Training 150%. It was the best training I have ever completed and you will be given ALL the tools, resources and knowledge you need to get started.”

Thomas Tsakounis, MS, LGPC, NCC, RH(AHG)

“What a PHENOMENAL Training! DeeAnna Merz Nagel provided invaluable information on using encryption to protect confidentiality, how to maintain appropriate relationship boundaries, and how to screen clients for suitability of receiving these modes of delivery. It was by far the best workshop I’ve ever attended!”
