What people say about working with Dr. Y

Dr. Y is a fantastic resource for our parents! The Sutter Park PTA was thrilled to be able to offer our parents a chance to hear her fresh solutions. We had fantastic feedback from our families and have asked Yvonne to return for a second session. Parents have a chance to ask their toughest parenting questions and get practical information they can put to use. It’s amazing how just a small change in parenting style can make things run smoother for the whole family! —Jane Witherspoon, President, Sutter Park PTA

“It has been such a joy working with you over the years… Thank you so much for all of your time for the Capital Nursing Students.” B, RN

A friend and I attended the “New Moms Group” meetings for at least a year. Not only did I gain valuable information about the needs and behaviors of infants and toddlers, but I also gained confidence, and I found friends that I will treasure—Yvonne, you created such a wonderful atmosphere of giving and sharing and acceptance. You gave advice about sleep, eating, discipline, and cognitive and special development that I continuously repeat to other new mothers that I know. I can’t imagine how big the number would be…of how many mothers, and children, and families you have helped and encouraged… THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU.J, Mom of 2

You have guided us in the right direction so many times when we didn’t know which way to go. Our family is much stronger for having had your influence.  E, Mom of 2

I cannot begin to thank you enough for everything that you did for my family. Your kindness, patience, thoughtfulness, humor & support made such a difference. Without judging you counseled, listened, advised and cared for us whenever we needed it. From simple advice of how to get out the door each morning to major life events like potty training (more major for some than others!) you gave me the tools to figure out the best way for us to make it work… So much more than just another toddler class, I am a better mom because of you.E, Mom of 3
