A huge fan!!

I am a huge fan of the Homebase Hope podcast. I am an OT myself and often recommend interviews from this podcast to the families and therapists I work with. Such an incredible resource! Empowering families with the knowledge they need to understand and support their child.

Thank you!

Your podcast about the importance of changing a mother’s mindset has resonated so loudly with me. I went for a walk today for some peace and quiet, and listened to this episode. I came home energized and feeling so much more positive and with a plan to move forward creating a more positive and happy vibe in my home. Thank you SO much.
