their greatest selves.
"Tara has truly changed and evolved our family to be more loving, strong, communicative, and fun. She has helped us to be parents that we want to be, and function from a place of truly understanding our boys and ourselves. The work she has done with our son has allowed us to be better parents to our boys, and enjoy being parents."
Just wanted to tell you I did the “love monster” tonight when they were fighting over my lap and not another word from either of them! Both laid on my lap and shared in peace. First time this has ever happened.
Thankful for you and your guidance. A wonderful feeling to see progress.
We went to our new friends house and she was not nervous or anxious at all, walked in immediately and made best friends with the other little girl; we had a great night! Same goes for this morning, spent time with her and she went to school in a good mood. Fingers crossed we will keep it up and talk about it at her next appointment!
...We are seeing less complaining, and more understanding of her environment. She is even beginning to be less frustrated with her peers.
