Mrs. T is a gem! We were lucky to have found her when we did. My daughter connected with Mrs. T instantly and has worked with her for a couple of years. Mrs. T is passionate about her work, takes a holistic approach and puts my daughter’s well-being first. Thanks to Mrs. T and the tools she has given us, my daughter’s mental health has improved tremendously. Mrs. T is an invaluable part of our support team for my daughter.

Ms. Washington we cannot begin to thank you enough for your profound presentation at our "Spread Love At The MoMA" Painting workshop in support of Anti-Bullying awareness. It was a success and we owe it all to you. Your gentle approach and kindness encouraged our young artist to feel comfortable and express themselves. Most importantly you allowed them to feel seen and heard. They learned valuable information and tools they will never forget and pass on to others. Thank you for leaving such an impactful long-lasting impression in the lives of our young artist. You are a motivating force Ms. T.
