I was extremely lucky to have the chance to meet and work with Denise. As a new parent of a child with Special Needs, I was very stressed, sad and confused much of the time. Denise always had a smile and encouraging words. She was always understanding, caring and very sensitive to the needs of all parents in her group. While she doesn’t have a special needs child herself, she was some how able to put herself in our shoes and see through our eyes. In my experience that is a very unusual gift. She was always very patient, compassionate and never judgmental or pitying. She was very attuned to our emotions in group and was able to move the topic else where if needed.
