[Our school-based therapist] worked to get my son engaged and comfortable, mixing work and play, getting him to open up. This has been a positive experience from the very first session. Thanks for helping my son 'turn it around' so beautifully. Having a genuine, warm therapist with a sense of humor is such a blessing!!
