      Dr. Orlich understands and is very knowledgeable in how to help kids with complex needs and challenges. She also is an amazing advocate who truly cares about the kids and families she is trying to help. We are grateful for her dedication to children's and adolescent's needs.

      Dr. Orlich is amazing. Out of all out the people and resources we have, she is BY FAR the best asset we have. Every time we feel lost, she has suggestions or different tips to try, and things feel better. I have no idea where we would be without her!
