"After our phone consultation I felt empowered to move forward in the direction of reclaiming my son's education and future. I'm inspired on may different levels to reach into what are his individual needs...emotional, spiritual, social, academic, and more, to help him actualize his own potential and love for learning. Thank you so much. I look forward to talking again and following your great work."
