I have just spent two full days at My Therapy House and I am in awe. I have worked as a Speech Pathologist for many years in the full range of service environments. I have not seen a model that works as well. The addition of Music Therapy to the mix is a stroke of genius. Dana and Craig have put their hearts and finances into creating a service with the needs of the client being paramount.
