    I can't began to tell you how much she help my daughter. My daughter suffered from extreme needle phobia after she was diagnosed with a chronic illness. Her illness requires weekly injections that became a three hour plus nightmare every Friday night. Dr. Mead worked with her for months inch by inch she was improving. Today my daughter still hates needles and gets nauseas when she needs her injections. However she does her injections herself and Friday nights are no longer a 3hour plus nightmare. I recommend Dr. Mead 100%

    Dr Mead has made such a postive impact with our son. He suffers from an anxiety disorder and he has made such amazing progress by working with Dr Mead. She individualizes her care so that the topics/solutions are individualized just for him. We're able to use them immediately and report back on our "homework" the next session. She's encouraged all the members of our family to be active participants in his care and has made fun activities for both our kids to work on together to make Q's anxiety better. It's been a pleasure to work with her!!
