    We loved working with Maddy and look forward to working with her again. Our child is a complex kid and both he and we were very happy with her professionalism and support. She combines academic knowledge with very skilled clinical and interpersonal skills. She helped our child identify and improve his responses to social situations and helped us to better support him. We recommend her without reservation.
