“My 11 year old son experiences mild anxiety. As we approached the pre-puberity years I wanted him to talk to someone about figuring out what tools he would need to get him through the obstacles he faced. He refused to go to therapy so I went instead. Ms. Munoz did a wonderful job of working with me to help my son. In a short period of time, I was able to see how I interpreted his anxiety vs. how an anxious person views himself. We worked on strategies to help ease the frustration with homework and helped give him the confidence he needed to feel capable of accomplishing tasks instead of putting them off because of fear. I felt that she never forced any one technique on me but rather helped find the approach that would give us the best results. I would highly recommend Ms. Munoz as a therapist.”
