"Kathi joined our family when our little boy was just three weeks old. She has a wonderful holistic approach to working with us. Through her gentle, caring nature and practical techniques, we have seen great progress in our son. We love the exercise board she created specifically for our family, so everyone who has a role in our son’s care giving has a consistent approach. She genuinely cares about our family and is fully vested in seeing our son flourish."
