I really feel you are brilliant and have really been of help and support to our family." Mother of 10 year old son.

You are such a blessing! Thank you for your help with our sons.

Thank you Sherry, and I am VERY glad that you are part of our “village”. T

The EMDR really seems to be a great fit. We had a great talk after his last session. You have really made a huge difference. ~Mother of 15 yr old and 10 yr old sons.

Calling you is the best call I've ever made. Thank you so much for all you've done to help our family. Things are so much better now.

"My son really appreciated your class. It also meant a lot to him that I cared enough about his friendships to send him. This class gave us a safe territory to talk about his friendships and a language to use."    Bob, father of 9 year old

Since our daughter completed the Friendship class, she has been so much nicer to me. I've been amazed.
Annette, mother of a 7 year old

"Dear Miss Lewis,
I'd like to tell you thanks for what you've done for me this year.
You really cared about me and helped me out a lot. You were a good listener when I came with tears running down my face. You made me laugh when I felt blue. You helped me succeed with my goals, like not cutting, facing my problems, talking about my feelings and how I feel about the situation. You made me realize that there is more to life than being depressed all the time, and there is more than being angry at the whole world. You also helped me to control my anger by relaxing my mind and cooling myself down. I've been using my coping skills when I need them. You made me feel like I was normal to the world and to other people. The greatest thing you taught me is to believe in myself. Yours truly, A" (age 16)

 You are the most helpful, caring, understanding person I know.
If I didn't know I had you to go to, I don't know what I would do.
Thanks so much.
Brian, 16
