Extremely professional, highly educated and experienced, fantastic rapport with kids. Compassionate, skilled and empathetic. After nearly three years of therapy nothing but praise for her professionalism and amazing results. Slander reviews reflect on the character of the reviewer only, ignore them.

Unprofessional to the extreme. When she submitted her assessment to a SA court it was widely regarded as perhaps the single most unprofessional document seen by law professionals who have been practicing for many decades. Indeed it was immediately dismissed because of this.
