in Richmond, VA |
Makes no eye contact acts like he has no idea who you are. Only writes scripts and couldn't care less about your problems.
in Chester, VA |
He listened well and explained things thoroughly to us multiple times until we understood. He is very knowledgeable in this field. He will help a parent reinforce what she/he is doing right with logic and examples for the child and he will also give an action for you to do to improve parenting and lift depression of child or teen. He took a lot of time with us. I did not have a long wait in the lobby but I won't mind if I do in the future because I know they are listening to the needs of anothe
