Family Member Quotes
“When we started working with InStride, my son (then 17) was unable to stay home alone and had intense anxiety around many areas of life that his peers would consider “normal.” The team at InStride worked with my son and our family to thoughtfully and pragmatically address his anxiety and provide him the tools and skills he needed to work through it and to be able to be in control of his life. At no point did they promise a “miracle cure” or quick fix. They were honest that there would be work involved but that they would be there to support along the way and they absolutely did.
“I can say unreservedly that my son would not be living the life he is today, having applied to college, getting his first job, and really seeing a future for himself over which he, not the anxiety, has control, without the support and extraordinary care of the team at InStride.”
