Newly Expanded Training for 2020

If you work with couples, you won’t want to miss this new, down-to-earth training where Michele will share her latest thinking about how to become A MASTER COUPLES THERAPIST.

For over 3 decades, Michele, a.k.a. The Divorce Buster, has been specializing in helping couples avoid unnecessary divorce and is the go-to therapist for 911 couples.

Through didactic discussions emphasizing specific how-to’s, extensive video examples, small group discussions, case consultations and experiential exercises, attendees are offered the opportunity to gain years’ worth of clinical skills in just 4 days.

Small Group Size

Michele will impart her clinical wisdom and decades-long experience to a small group of professionals who share her marriage-saving passion!

Although Michele’s trainings are usually geared toward large groups of mental health professionals, this training is different. Attendance will be limited to the first 25 - 35 people who register (dependent on room configuration). These trainings fill up fast!

Although Michele spends months planning the didactic material to be covered over the 4 days, she is completely responsive to the needs of attendees regarding topics that require more in-depth discussions or experiential exercises to bring her ideas to life.

New this year.  I've invited two well-known and widely respected colleagues to attend our group.  I believe networking with other professionals is an added bonus to this training and I think you will truly enjoy meeting and participating with these two good friends of mine.



this small group training fosters a sense of intimacy and camaraderie, an environment that enable attendees to feel safe sharing ideas or asking questions to enhance their learning.

Finally, limited attendance allows participants to get to know Michele and other colleagues in ways that are not possible during larger training events. It’s not unusual for people to make lifelong connections during this intensive training experience!

We'll be recording this workshop as part of an advanced training product.  Attendees will be offered discounts on the final video training.

Participants in this workshop are also eligible to join Michele's professional clinical case consultation groups.

“Thank you, Michele. Experiencing your material for several days in an intimate setting, was movingly memorable. The group dinner at Michele and Jim’s home was like dessert.

“Thank you so much for this fabulous training! Other words like “incredible, inspiring, amazing, great, wonderful, super duper, cool, far out (hippie days lingo) and my personal favorite “WOW” are just a few superlatives that capture my experience of your work. My story about this training is I got to learn from your mastery. It’s the kind of mastery that can only come from the years of work.”

“Today is my first day back at work. I couldn’t wait to try my new skills with the first couple of the day who have been very challenging. The results were amazing. I was channeling you the whole hour!” 

“I typically attend one to two major training seminars annually and I would say your "Behind Closed Doors" is by far the best seminar I have attended. Thanks again for your willingness to share you ideas and concepts with us. This was a fantastic opportunity! 

“Thanks so much for everything! I had a great time and feel energized to "try something different." 

“I thoroughly enjoyed the training. You are so sincere in your desire to help couples. And I love your " psychotic optimism." We need more of that in the world.”
