Testimonials from Clients

"Jan gave me great advice at a time when I was exhausted and demoralized. Her support was invaluable. She gave me concrete things to try that fit with my values and a welcome reminder to dig deeper beyond behaviours. My relationship with my daughter is better for it. The next time I need a fresh perspective, I will not hesitate to seek her counsel." - Brandeen

"I was very lucky to find Jan, as a counselor, while my child was still an infant. I am a single parent and I have relied on Jan's help many times! I love the attachment parenting way that Jan has shown me. It has built a solid trusting relationship between me and my child through the years. I feel my daughter has a very secure inner core due to Jan's advice. I am so grateful for finding and speaking to her." - Karen

"I am doing so much better since we talked and I read all the material you suggested. I'm sure you know you touch a whole lot of lives, but I wanted to let you know you touched mine and thus have touched my son's. Thank you from the bottom of my heart." - J.R.
