You Can’t Keep Her Down!
That was an awesome Parent Empowerment Session! I’m feeling so at peace and certain, and like I want to celebrate my family. WE get to choose our own future, and we get to define success for ourselves. It doesn’t matter what Faith’s assessments say because any gaps in her development are only temporary.
YOU CAN’T KEEP HER DOWN! She will bloom into an awesome badass butterfly one day!!! And I get to watch it happen! You have made such an awesome impact on my life, Denise. Today made me realize I’m not an expendable and obsolete person now that my kids are here to replace me – I’m actually the most important piece of the puzzle!! My new mantra is, “You can’t handle this much AWESOMENESS!” I guess the subconscious (NLP) work is taking effect!

She Helped Me Step Into Confidence and Empowerment!
Thanks to guided inner work with Denise, I was able to shift the limiting beliefs, values and behaviors that were keeping me stuck in life. She helped me step into confidence and empowerment so I could make successful steps forward towards financial freedom and the abundance of life.
I realized it was time to come out, to be visible, to get out of my own way and stand in truth. It is freeing to have action items towards success and Denise was instrumental in my personal evolution.
Now I know I can do anything! It’s a relief that I can trust my intuition and heart. I’m being an open, loving, connected person who is approachable and who people want to connect with.

Definitely One of the Best!
When we first got the diagnosis of autism, it was overwhelming. Not just the knowledge, but dealing with the regional center, insurance, and therapies. Denise was incredibly helpful in navigating those mazes. She told me about services I didn’t even know were available. Over the course of nearly three years, my son encountered dozens of therapists, and Denise was definitely one of the best! She is knowledgeable, engaging, and fun. Toby had a confusing tangle of sensory issues, and she was able to untangle his various needs and show me how to help him. In addition to my son, I got to see Denise work with many other children, and she understands how to bring out the best in a wide range of children with different struggles and different personalities. Not only is Denise good for children, she’s also good for parents. Sometimes I fell into the trap of only seeing my son’s deficiencies, and Denise was excellent at gently reminding me of his many wonderful qualities. Plus, we just spent so much time laughing together, which is an excellent way to cope with the stress of parenting a special needs child.

He Has Improved in So Many Ways!
Denise is very experienced and I consider her a phenomenal expert in working with children who have developmental needs. Self-feeding was a big challenge for my 4-year-old son. Before working with Denise, he would only drink water from a syringe or spoon. Since working with Denise, he has made significant improvements in this area. She has introduced and recommended a number of different cups to help my son drink. He is now able to drink from a special straw cup Denise recommended.
Denise has opened my eyes on so many ways to help my son develop communication through everyday activities. Watching how quickly she can come up with ideas to get my son engaged in preferred and non-preferred activities has taught me how much more I can help my son.
Denise, it was so wonderful to work with you and we are so glad we proceeded with it. I agree, he has improved in so many ways since you have been working with us—thank you!

Adam is doing amazingly. For weeks now, he has not wet his pants ONCE. Not. Once. Poop is still an issue for him since he struggles with constipation and mild CP but he obviously “gets it.” The one big poop he has had recently was in the potty! He’s doing really well at saying he has to go to the potty, waiting till we get to one, sitting on the john and peeing.
You were right and he’s SO proud of himself! So happy to finally potty train our son. Thanks!

The Tools to Express Himself
I can’t recommend Denise highly enough for the help she gave our family. She helped our little guy out of his shell, gave him the tools to express himself, handle a toddler’s life challenges, and connect better with us and his peers. He’s maturing a lot, we (and he) are much better able to handle his apprehensions now, his tantrums have decreased tremendously, and we’re getting ready to enroll him in Transitional Kindergarten. Denise helped us to get to know and understand our son better, and for that we’re eternally grateful!
Thanks so much for everything!

He’s Really Listening & Following Directions
I’m setting the boundaries now and he’s doing so beautifully! Things are not a big deal anymore and he’s listening all the time. He’s like a different kid now – he’s more calm – I can’t believe it’s only been a month! And he’s proud of himself. He’s such a different boy now. He seems more grown up and he’s really listening and following directions. Thank you for being so professional and so sincere.

Gift from the Heavens!
Dear Denise – you were a gift from the heavens! Thank you so much for your support. Without even realizing it, my husband and I are really talking about many things and this happened after we both talked with you. Who would have thought that talking together with someone else (who has an impartial view) would bring us closer together. The kids are doing better and little by little “Sam” is learning to keep his tantrums away while “Mikey” is trying to do things faster. Thanks again from the bottom of my heart!

She Can Help You Get the Results You Want!
Denise is such an awesome coach!
She was able to shift my perspective with ease. I’m now living in a new way of being. If you work with Denise, she can help you get the results you want! Don’t hesitate to get her help today.

Changing Behaviors with Love
Before our school started working with Denise, our preschool had been looking for someone that could help and guide us with some children we needed help with. We called Denise and from the start she was so helpful! She gave us many tools that have worked in our classroom, and the challenges we were facing with a child in my classroom disappeared. She was so positive and gave us so many tools to help the child in my classroom – that really helped him. In the past, over the years, we have worked with many specialists, but working with Denise was so easy and such a great experience for the teachers too. The parents have all benefited from her as well. We feel lucky to have worked with her and will continue to work with her for years to come. Thanks to her, we have had success in helping many children in my classroom.

Always Understanding, Caring and Very Sensitive
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 and classroom. While she doesn’t have a special needs child herself, she was somehow 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 elsewhere, as needed.

Early Intervention is the Key
My son, Alexander, is a 5 yr. old boy with Quadriplegic Cerebral Palsy, and global developmental delays. He is not able to walk independently, he can only pronounce a few words, and he has a g-tube. We noticed that something was not right shortly after his birth. Since then, it has been an ongoing battle, from learning about his current and future needs, to learning how to cope with the community around us. It has changed our lives forever. My son has to face special challenges and needs extra help.
After working with Denise our lives have changed forever. We now know the best ways to care for Alexander, how to support and promote his development. We have learned that early intervention is the key in making a tremendous difference during the first years of Alexander’s life. We have also learned how to seek for adequate services that are necessary for his improvement. Having the support from a knowledgeable person like Denise makes you feel confident because you know that she will be there to guide you to the best interest of your child.
Thanks to Denise’s support and information, we know how to fight for Alexander’s rights, services, and related equipment. Alexander has all the necessary equipment to help him give out the best from him. He has a special stroller and a walker that helps him get where he wants to go with minimal support from an adult.
Having the support from Denise and knowing that she is there when you are lost is the best support that we all can ever have.

A constant String of Challenges
I have a son that suffers from extreme behaviours and violent tendencies. His childhood has been a constant string of challenges. Thank God for Denise. She was able to help me learn ways to help keep him safe, me safe and bring some calm to our chaos so we could feel more like a family again! I would have gone out of my mind! Thanks Denise!

On the Autism Spectrum?
When we learned that my grandson might be ‘on the spectrum,’ we were devastated. Then we were put in touch with Denise. We enrolled in her Early Invervention Classroom and were so pleased and relieved. Denise provided us with models of behavior that helped him come out of his shell and participate. When things got hard, Denise was there to give us both advice and encouragement. Now he’s an amateur “birder” living in Tokyo, speaking fluent Japanese, and keeping detailed records of birds in both languages! This gramma is so grateful!

Your Search is Over
Inevitably you are reading this because you are considering Ms. Denise Carbon in some capacity related to early childhood developmental issues. In sum, your search is over. Ms. Carbon is not only a professional, well-educated specialist but she is a wonderful, caring, loving person.
I had the privilege of working with Ms. Carbon for 2 years while I was caring for a little boy. I was his nanny and his parents were not able to participate in his every day issues as much as they would have liked. So they left me in charge to make sure that their child was getting the best of care. After 2 years of services, he had grown and matured into a well developed little boy.
If I had the means and the need to use Ms. Carbon on a private basis, I would not hesitate to hire her. You will never find any better in the field.
Cheryl Bissey, San Jose, California
Denise mediated our discussion group of parents of toddlers receiving early intervention services as the perfect group facilitator. She was easy to talk to and helped families as well as children. We especially appreciated her empathy, respect, and thoughtful contributions, which made the group a comfortable place to share our successes and discuss our challenges. She was also knowledgeable about and helpful in guiding us toward the resources available to us as parents.

Every Day was a Struggle
Before meeting Denise and getting connected to other families facing similar obstacles, every day was a struggle. I didn’t know what I needed, but Denise was able to help me, and our whole family by guiding us to resources and ensuring our son was getting the services he needed to grow and develop into the amazing little boy he is today!
