"After going to other therapists we were thankfully referred to Michelle, and her team, who patiently and successfully created a holistic plan for our daughter’s therapy. At every step of the way they have treated her with dignity and respect. They have given her confidence and self-esteem that have carried over to every other area of her life. They have also helped guide and educate us to make sure we are always on the right path. They have truly changed our daughter’s life and ours as well. We will be forever indebted to Michelle who has truly become like a member of our family."
