“We were in a scary and desperate place as a family, immobilized by the behavior of our 10 year old son.  Heather was exactly who we needed! She provided a warm, but no-nonsense approach to behavioral intervention.  She walks in, takes off her shoes and gets right down to business. She has been such a support for us not only by improving our parenting skills but our daily interactions and appreciation for one another.  I wish I would have known people like Heather were out there years ago.”

“Thank you for all your help with our son. You are amazing!! You were an answer to our prayers. My son is now able to express himself without becoming aggressive. People like you are one in a million.”- Parents of a 9 year old boy diagnosed with ASD
