My 15 year old younger brother moved in with me from the east coast. I found it challenging to help him find success and finish school. It’s easy to press too hard, or to be protective and too easy. With Cady’s help, we were able to find the right approach and motivate him. Today he is doing great. He finished high school, started college and is working full time.


My daughter has come a long way since she started working with Cady. She’s been willing to try things we never thought we’d see her attempt. Before, she was playing video games all the time and wouldn’t consider going back to school. Now she’s in community college, passing her classes, and looking for a job.

J.S., Parent

Our son was depressed and lonely and he wouldn’t talk to us. He was on his computer all the time. Cady understood him in a way we wanted to, but couldn’t. We can see big changes in him. He’s started volunteering and decided to go back to school. Our family life is a lot more peaceful.

Cady is the best person we’ve ever had work with our son. She is not only professionally trained…but has an immense amount of personal experience. I give her my highest recommendation.

B.H., Parent

I have personally seen Ms. Stanton’s rapport and results with special needs teenage children in foster care, and watched her turn a child’s life away from the worst of circumstances. She combines a logical, methodological approach with genuine emotional investment in children in her care. As an attorney, I value her knowledge and ability to persistently advocate for children and families dealing with state agencies.

Cady is extremely dedicated, dependable, caring, and knowledgeable. I have worked with Cady both professionally and in a volunteer capacity with a large homeless program. At work, Cady was known as someone who completed complex projects with competence and efficiency. In her role as a volunteer, Cady showed incredible commitment to developing relationships with our homeless guests and resolving conflicts. Between her professionalism and her amazing intuition and people skills, I can honestly recommend Cady to any family.

Cady and I worked together at the UC Davis MIND Institute (a collaborative institute that studies neurodevelopmental disorders in children and adults)… Cady’s ability to connect with children and adults alike is matched by her enthusiastic, caring personality. Cady’s passion for working with children of all ages and abilities never ceased to amaze me. I recommend Cady with the highest levels of confidence.

Cady’s patience and passion were undeniable while I worked under her guidance at the UC Davis MIND Institute. Not only does she go the extra mile for all the children and families she provides her services to, she also always gives her best to her colleagues. Her caring personality has warmed my heart, especially during personal hard times. Cady has an amazing ability to reach individuals at a special level, she has my highest recommendation without a doubt.
