Testimonials

 

 

"Our son was able to easily relate to Valerie and share his concerns with her. He even enjoyed coming. He also learned a lot about appropriate behaviors for himself and in other people. Most importantly, he gained his self-confidence back."

"The center and its staff have been very helpful to my family, especially my daughter. We are grateful for everything they have done for us."
Parent


"Words cannot say how the center has helped our family from beginning to end. They were our rock that we needed to lean on during this time. They knew what to say at the right time, they educated us in a way we understood, and most importantly, after a tough time with tantrums and anxiety attacks, our child is back to himself. The feeling in the end was left with that the door is still open not shut." 
Parent

"My husband and I were thankful you were there for us at court. This is how I know your agency is so important because you were there for us in the beginning (interview, medical exams), for the boys (therapy), and then still for us now (court - one year later). I thought I was ok and then I had to relive it again (in court). You really stood by us and the kids. I am really thankful you were there for me, and my husband, and for the kids. You helped my stay clam and I was able to take the stand. Thank you."
