What Parents and Professionals are Saying


“Andrea has been a trusted healthcare associate for  a long time. I have used her excellent professional services on many occasions and am ecstatic with her ability and intuition.  I would highly recommend her if you have children with whom you are wishing a closer relationship without conflict.”

“A friend introduced me to your Facebook page a few weeks ago and honestly, the non-judgemental support, expert advice and knowledge you offer is just amazing. I love how thoughtful and well-researched your articles are and your warm, supportive attitude. Since following you on FB, I have used a number of your strategies. Yesterday I used the de-escalating tactics you talked about in your recent HuffPo article and honestly, it turned my whole mood – and day – around.

Thank you so much for offering such amazing advice and support to moms everywhere – you are changing not only our lives, but the lives of our children.”


“The first time I met Andrea, she opened her heart and mind to me, which made me feel comfortable to do the same to her.  She’s very empathetic and welcoming.  Her positive energy made me want to share my stories and secrets, and once I did, I couldn’t be happier about it.”

“Life seemed to be rolling along, in fact quite ordinary until the spring of 2011.  I began to notice a dramatic change in my teenage daughter’s mood, behaviour and attitude.  She was closing down on me, rejecting all family members, would not spend time with any of us, would not leave her room to have dinner and she wouldn’t talk to me about what was bothering her.  I knew something was very wrong, but unsure how to deal with it.

Andrea very quickly became one of the most important people in my life, during this extremely difficult period.  I first met with Andrea to share my concerns with her regarding my teenage daughter.  She immediately put me at ease and made me feel like I was not alone.  She set my expectations and offered some practical advice right away, along with reading material and videos to watch.  When I left her office that day, I was filled with so much anxiety and apprehension, yet deep down I knew I was better off for it.  I was about to put all of my faith and trust into her expertise and ultimately, it paid off.

 Next step was to have my daughter meet with her.  She immediately connected with Andrea and met over the course of the next 3 months, maybe 10 times or so.  It took half the amount of time that Andrea had predicted it would take to get her back! Andrea was very flexible and accommodating to our needs and what made sense versus following conventional office hours.  Andrea helped to strengthen our relationship and help give both of us clarity.  I feel so fortunate to have met Andrea at the right time!”
