We had heard Ray speak at our kids high school a few years ago. We went to listen for general information and were very impressed. A few years later, we discovered our son was using marijuana. It was making him aggressive and unreasonable to the point the police had to be called regularly. We had spoken with more than several professionals, and no one comes close to Ray. We remembered listening to Ray at the high school and called him to work with us. There was immediate respect from all of us, most notably our son. Aside from being extremely knowledgable, Ray is reassuring in a practical and no nonsense way. When the conversation would start to go off the rails, Ray knew just what to say and when to listen. Also, he was available to us; we were NOT alone anymore. If you are searching for someone to help you, a loved one, your family… look no further. You have found the best in Ray Estefania.
We started working with Ray to help us with our 17 year old son. He has been a Godsend for our son and our family. He is empathetic, kind, caring, supportive, while at the same time being firm and no nonsense. It is exactly what our son needed. He has helped us see things more clearly and better understand the addiction & recovery process, while working closely with our son on his journey to a clean and healthy life. We are beyond grateful and thankful to Ray. He has been a blessing that we never thought we needed, but one that now we cannot imagine going through this journey without. We cannot thank him enough for everything he has done and continues to do for our son and our family. He has given us renewed hope.
