“Often, it’s a matter of who you know not what you know.”
And on this path, I work with a number of therapists and clinicians on a comprehensive professional level, so I do know many outstanding service providers first-hand. As a result, the opportunity to share these referrals with clients is part of the service I provide. Nevertheless, there are times when folks are just needing a “lead”, someone they can trust during comprehensive searches for the best support for one’s child. Call us or write us when you are seeking a concierge - referral service and we will be able to provide you the “insiders” perspective for your search. We are one extra call but it may save you many more!
