Quotes from Clients:

“Chris taught me more about AD/HD in one session than I learned from any other source including my physician. She has helped my husband and me understand our AD/HD child and why she does what she does. With Chris’ support, we have moved our child to a new school that accommodates and understands AD/HD children. We are all much happier and life is getting less chaotic.” Joy and Bruce

“In my attempt to get through graduate school, Chris provided me with the organization and time management skills I desperately needed. I wish I would have known her 10 years ago!” Jenny

“Getting on the right AD/HD medication and learning how to determine if I was getting the maximum benefit was challenging. Having someone knowledgeable to stick with me until I got it right was invaluable.” Becky

“Learning how to write family guidelines and conduct weekly family communication meetings has changed all our lives. We now have some semblance of order and I don’t dread going home.” Heather and Doug
