Ian is amazing! He has been teaching addictions, trauma and mental health workshops in our Professional Development program for many years. He is an incredibly dynamic, skilled and compassionate instructor whose natural presence creates open, relaxed learning environments. He brings a tremendous amount of knowledge and experience to the classroom (whether the classroom is in-person, virtual or online) and values the shared knowledge that each participant brings to the training.

For our team, it is a pleasure working with Ian. He is responsive, well-prepared and always willing to share his expertise or assist with any training opportunities. We are so grateful that we are able to work with Ian. I would highly recommend Ian as a trainer.
