I would recommend Dr Brietstein, his low key approach helped me to come to the right conclusions about my problems. Guiding me to figuring out my short comings, faults and my wrong thinking. I have been able to come from almost insanity to sanity and bringing peace to my family and to stop beating myself up, accepting that I am an ok human being. I must mention that many time we would laugh at my thinking or at the situation I had created. Laughter is good. Life is better.
Thank you for your kind response. It was a pleasure being a help agent in your life. If I can be of any further help, please let me know.

Dr Brietstein did a forensic custody evaluation (fce) for our family. The report was spot on. If you need a fce done be assured that the truth will come out. I am very pleased with the professional report as well as the staff. Dr Brietstein even did a follow up call to make sure everything was going well.
I appreciate your comments very much. Going through a custody evaluation can be very stressful. I can truly say you handled a very difficult situation with much wisdom and patience.
