Parent Testimony:

Kendra is an excellent therapist! Our daughter enjoys her “play time” with Kendra and looks forward to her coming! Yaretzi has made such wonderful progress with Kendra’s help. She is now able to use more words and communicate with us easier. She now tries to have conversations with us, before Kendra she was just quiet all the time. Kendra has been great and we would recommend her to anyone!
