WE LOVE WHAT WE DO

“Ms. Tanya is a very generous, easy-going, flexible person to work with; always in good spirits and possessing an infectious laugh. She has very good
judgement about matters both professional and interpersonal. In the years Ms. Tanya has been coming to our house, she has never uttered a judgmental or unkind word. In our long history as therapy parents, nearly ten, we have never met another therapist we trusted so much for common sense and ability to see the parent’s point of view.”
