Hi Dr Lanette, you probably don’t remember me or my daughter, i was previlage to come and see you at your randurg practices when my daughter was in grade 6 and i was referred to you by Arnie Williams and his sister Yvonne. And im proud to say my daughter is going to graduate this year at wits as a medical Dr. I would love to see you again for my 14 year old daughter who is in grade 9 i have tried to get hold of you for so many years to bring my youngest daughter because you are the best. I believe you no longer consult as a educational psychologist for individuals.
