“My daughter was encouraged to voice her feelings rather than just acting out when she was angry or worried or anxious. She is much better at this than she was previously. The counselors encouraged her own ways to calm her anxious response to new situations. She was able to go on two field trips this past semester without the usual anxious build-up in the days prior to the trips. She is facing new situations with more confidence and less anxiousness.”

“Thank you so much for your services. {Staff} was a God send to me. Many Blessings!”

“Staff is a great and wonderful lady. Thank her for everything and may God Bless her and the whole Baby Fold organization!!!”

“I just want to take the time to thank you for all you have done. The times you gave us a break and we knew our kids were in good hands. Thank you and God bless you!”

“Your services are great. I send some difficult families to The Baby Fold. Your staff is always professional and goes above and beyond helping these families. Staff is very knowledgeable and making helpful suggestions to the families. Staff has the patience of a saint and is always cheerful as she works with some of the most difficult clients and family members. She sees things out to the very end for her client. She adjusts her hours to see them day and night. Staff is very knowledgeable and helpful to her clients and keeps me informed of events, which I appreciate very much. Staff is a absolute dream. She is so concerned and caring about her clients and families. She works around the family schedule, day and night as well. She has a wealth of information that she brings to her families and clients. She too has the patience of a saint and is willing to assist the families in being successful. Staff is very intelligent and has wonderful ideas she sets up with her clients to teach them other ways of handling their emotions. She also home, school, or where ever she needs to go to see her client. Staff has a very calm and peaceful disposition. I truly enjoy the work each therapist does to work with these difficult clients as well as families. I would not suggest any improvements.”
