"Vitalah Simon is a wise and healing woman. Through sessions with her, my four year old flourished in a trust-filled space - a space where he played, talked, and explored his anger, discovering
safe alternatives to expressing it.
In addition, Vitalah worked with me to address larger issues for myself and my family. Her teachings about the family as a "system" through which individuals work,
live and love together, helped me focus my energies in resolving conflicts appropriately. I will always be grateful for her guidance and support."
