My son absolutely adores her. He is open and honest with her because she will seriously listen and discusses with us and him what if any changes we need to make. She works with all of us as a team to best help our child. We have been able to reach her quickly in an emergency situation. I would recommend her to everyone and I have actually recommended her to two friends! We drive an hour to see her but it is definitely worth our time!
