Ms. Linares provides therapy to my 8 year old child. She is very diligent and on top of her cases. She explains well the diagnosis and the treatment plans. My child is doing great with her; he loves his therapist and is always asking me when is she coming for in-home services. She's bilingual and excelled our expectations. Great provider.
