My son needed therapy and Lost and Found was covered by his insurance and because I had a similar belief system and it was not too far away I gave it a shot. I wish I hadn't. The first therapist he saw there was more interested in me and not him (he was 9). Now I wasn't offended because I know I'm not a perfect parent but he needed help to, not just me. On top of that our appointments were inconsistent due to her schedule. When she left for another agency we were transferred to a woman who was very holistic and wanted to "treat" his perceived food allergies rather than help him with his behavior issues. This didn't last long as there was an extra charge because his insurance wouldn't cover the "treatments". I don't feel like my son was served very well here at all.

Stable despite the times and seasons of economic pressures and political influences. The cause is clear and its fulfillment complete, despite a what externally looks like disorganization. These folks have some of the most dynamic synergy evidenced in our non-profit sector.
