“Working alongside my colleagues at LifeSkills, I have gained the proficiencies necessary to help my clients feel more comfortable in their environment, thereby allowing them to live more fulfilling, and happier lives. The parent of one of my clients once said to me, ‘After bringing my 11-year-old-son to LifeSkills to work with you, I was finally able to hold and cuddle with my son.’ Her son was hypersensitive to touch, and she expressed that she ‘could not have asked for a better gift’. Stories like this make me love what I do at LifeSkills. That is what this clinic is all about.”
