"I loved your presentation on Tuesday evening. Thank you as well for letting people know about the Montgomery County rec program. I did not realize it might be suited to our families. It means a lot for parents to know your history and expertise and to know that you have information about other programs.
Reda, thank you for inviting Beth and Debbie to speak."
"I have known Beth Albaneze for over 10 years and truly consider her to be my mentor. Her professionalism is unmatched and her compassion and empathy as a counselor and therapist is remarkable. Without hesitation, I would highly recommend her to anyone in need of her myriad of services. Beth is an anomaly. Few people can be so highly knowledgeable in so many areas. She is a true treasure to those she serves." -Michelle Thyen, MA, CVA, Director of Volunteer Services, Brain Injury Services, Inc.
