"Before coming to see Breena we felt overwhelmed most of the time.  Breena helped us to find solutions for a lot of obstacles we had encountered. Each time we had a session we got more information about resources available and saw progress in our son.  We took the More Than Words class, which gave us a chance to meet other families in similar situations, which was invaluable.  We feel so blessed to work with Breena."
