“Donna and Lee Ann provided us with the tools to best address current concerns with our adolescents. It is extremely difficult to be an effective parent in a world that is full of risks and stress. Donna and Lee Ann were an invaluable source of information that guided us into 2019 with our eyes, ears and hearts wide open. We cannot thank them enough.”
— Erin Manahan, Delbarton Mothers Guild President 2017-18
“Donna and Lee Ann came to our school last spring to speak about vaping. We opened the program up to our 6th, 7th and 8th graders and then had the parents join afterwards. What an informative session! These women are mental health professionals who are extremely knowledgeable and passed along valuable information in a supportive, non-threatening manner. Anecdotal stories of addiction were shared, placing the problem within our own community. The discussion with the parents led to a q and a that could have gone on all day! Students and parents alike were engaged and enthusiastic throughout- the popcorn that was provided didn’t hurt! In the end, we all came away from the conversation more informed, with knowledge and tools from professionals who deal with addiction in their day to day practice. The parents, faculty and students of our school fully endorse this program.”

“Donna and Lee Ann were wonderful presenters at our school for our students and community. The presentation was timely, dynamic and interactive. It provided vital information about the dangers of vaping and juuling. It is a must see for middle schoolers , parents and educators. The community was enlightened with the information but also were provided with resources and tools to combat this latest epidemic. Well done!”
