Here’s what just some of our clients have said

Dr. Buckingham did a great job. Not only did he develop an outstanding training module for NASW, his presentation was superb. He was engaging, explained things well and used personal experience. Thanks for a job well done.

Jeremy Wiener, MSW, LGSW

Thank you for inspiring our faculty and students during our 30th Annual Social Work Month Celebration. Your “I Can” message was well received and inspired all that were in attendance. We look forward to having you come back again.

Dr. Theresia Ratliff

A Black Woman’s Worth is an excellent film. I watched it with my twelve year old daughter and we both really liked it. I think every Black woman should see this film. It reminds us of how important and special we are to the Black community.

Dorothy Jones

Dr. Dwayne is the best life coach that I have ever worked with. He helped me learn things about myself that other life coaches did not notice or address. I look forward to my coaching sessions because I learn so much about myself and relationships.
