Watching you work with And speak from your heart to Elliot is a gift that I am so very grateful for. When you work with him you have such calm clarity and gentle command of the situation. I have my own wisdom and love to share with him and guidance to give but I can not speak to him with the same words and wisdom that he gets from you. I am eternally grateful for your tutelage. It is not often that we find people who can speak and work in the words and ways that touch us deeply but you have a gift to speak with and teach children’s spirits. Thank you! You make a HUGE difference in Elliot’s life."
