Frequently Asked Questions
“Dr. [Debra's] prep course was a great reminder to focus on process just as much as content. What a great lesson to begin practicing what we preach. Her reminder to focus on the positive was the “difference that made the difference” for me! Taking her suggestion, I posted “I will pass the licensure exam!” in my office and repeated it every night before studying (not to mention right before taking the exam). This proved to be a very meaningful affirmation!”

“Dr. [Debra] gave me some great tips and provided me with her personal study guide and ideas as to how to tackle the exam… Dr. Debra made me aware of the importance in how to mentally approach this exam. … At the time my confidence was not so high …I had no high hopes and went through phases feeling intimidated by the large amount of material.. Suddenly I felt like I was back in the game … At the end when I was feeling good… Preparing with Dr. Nixon’s strategies and tactics …was as important as knowing the material. Debra, is there a reason…” Olivia
