What Clients Are Saying…
Our child is doing incredible and most of those past struggles are distant memories (I think there may always be a “little” lingering anxiety). It wasn’t always easy, but here we are years later and enjoying some amazing successes on all fronts (social, academic, emotional).
Our experience with Dr. T was wonderful! His caring and warm hearted nature made our daughter feel comfortable from day one. Dr. T takes the time to listen and relate to his patients no matter what the age. Our daughter loved that he always made sure that she had a say in any decision we made.
I work for a nonprofit that focuses on the mental health of injured athletes. Dr. T has taken the time out of his busy schedule to meet with our Sidelined Support Group at various high schools. The athletes have loved his “talks” and have found him extremely helpful when dealing with the struggles of being injured.
