I have a long-standing private therapy practice that is family-oriented and home-based. My daughter, Heather Leatherwood, M.Ed., works with me as my office manager and as an academic consultant/private tutor. We believe that every child deserves individualized attention, as does his or her family. We treat every child as a unique and capable individual, always recognizing that self-actualization is built on successful experiences.
