"... this past year has been a very stressful and frustrating time for our family. We truly appreciate you seeing us through. We learned a lot along the way, including how to manage our frustrations and how to communicate more effectively!"

(about DBT groups)-- "Validation is the best magic trick I know! I used it with my mom during a fight and it really works! Almost right after, we weren't fighting anymore. I was able to make a compromise."

"Before I really engaged in therapy, things were so hard for me. I was repeating the same patterns and felt really ashamed. I want people to know that I see therapy as a time for healing. It really is possible to feel better. I feel pretty good about myself and I get along better with my family. Things aren't perfect but they've improved. I will always be thankful for this experience. From a kid whose been there, work on yourself and everything will fall into place."
