“I went to two open houses and I just immediately loved the feel of ICP. I liked how eclectic it was. Then, I applied and got lucky enough to get in. From there, training was rigorous. It’s demanding, but the faculty, the mentoring, and supervision are just so helpful, so supportive, in helping one expand and grow. The training program helped me to build confidence in addition to knowledge and skills.”
