“Marquie explains information in a way that feels warm and easy to understand. She has taught me and my family strategies for potty training, bedtime routine, and meal times with my little one!”
“Marquie is collaborative, kind, and knowledgeable. She sheds light on the importance of understanding the root of a child’s barriers to functioning in the school environment. She provides information to supplement the school team’s approach to support and provides recommendations that are realistic, effective, and creative.”
“Marquie helped me learn to understand my child in a different way. She worked with me to identify how to utilize my connection with my child to foster security in his abilities. This helped me feel more in tune with my child’s needs and allowed me to see him branch out and become more confident in his body.”
