We brought our son for ADHD and found out that he was actually having anxiety. After working with Dr. Dawn we were able to identify the real reason our son was having so much trouble in school with paying attention. He is now on the right medication and not taking anything for ADHD!
Dr. Dawn was great! That is all I can say. We had gone to a previous therapist that diagnosed our son with ODD and Anxiety Disorder. Dr. Dawn was able to educate us on what was developmentally normal and how to parent our son in a way that worked for him and us.
My kids were having a hard time dealing with our divorce. Not only did Dr. Dawn help my kids with all the changes, she helped us understand how to help them and make it easier on all of us. I am forever thankful for the guidance and support she gave us during this difficult time.
