“I feel empowered because of all the knowledge that she shared with me. She is the most patient and kind person I know- sending resources that I can use to follow through after sessions, teaching me techniques that I have never known before. We couldn't be happier with the progress our little one has made, and we owe a huge thanks to Liz.”
