Read ‘Testimonials’ from families I have helped and inspired as well as support from healing experts.
Just wanted to drop you a note to thank you for all your help and support. Your guidance and wisdom was invaluable during one of the toughest times of my life. You always listened to me and then made sure I had a goal each week to help keep myself sane through all the trials of having a child with anorexia. Your knowledge and network of information was very helpful. I could not have gotten through it without you." ~ Toni C.
“Thank you for writing it.” I am honored to know you and am grateful for your wonderful book - which is a gift to parents.
