What People Say

Parent of Elementary School Girl

"Mrs. Franklin has an extraordinary ability to combine clinical insight and skills with an easygoing, approachable nature that made my daughter feel comfortable and at ease. My daughter actually looked forward to her therapy sessions and to completing the treatment work due to the way in which Mrs. Franklin skilfully accomplished treatment goals in a fun and enjoyable way. Within only a few sessions, my husband and I saw marked improvement in my daughter's ability to emotionally regulate outbursts and to have the language to express what she was feeling. We also truly appreciated how responsive Mrs. Franklin was with communication with us.

  I highly recommend Mrs. Franklin to any family who is looking for their child to experience growth and develop skills in a nurturing, fun environment."
