A little about their business.
With their passion for families and love of sports, Stephani and Ali created Holistic Family Solutions, Family Restoration Services, The Children’s Fitness Academy and Families Overcoming Obstacles Together.
They have created a more holistic and natural approach to counseling and therapy. Through psychology and sports, Stephanie and Ali have taught families how to help prevent, manage and treat their children’s emotional and behavioral disorders.
One piece of advice (the nutshell version)
Keep going. Connect to your inner strength and keep going. Anything mentally conceived can be physically accomplished if you don’t quit.
