Here’s what others have to say about Fresh Start for families:

“Family lifestyles are hectic and distracted. Home is often perceived by youth as not a safe place. We work with Joanna Jullien because her parenting philosophy and teaching to help parents relate to their tech-savvy children is an essential aspect of restoring health and peace of mind for children who need to bond with parents in authentic ways.” — Angela Chanter, PsyD., Therapeutic Solutions 360 in Roseville, Ca.

Mary Lisa Patton, B.A.Psych, CADCII, IS, NCFAC, counsels parents and adolescents on addiction issues at her counseling center called Beloved Recovery in Roseville. She offers insights about the use of baby gadgets and bonding.

“As a professional, Fresh Start … opened up my world to new issues my clients and their families may experiencing in their search for connection and healing…The family motto and value section is an invaluable tool. When a family comes together with a purpose or creates a new purpose that was non-existent before, it strengthens the family system.” — Mary Lisa Patton, B.A.Psych, CADCII, IS, NCFAC, founder of Beloved Recovery.


“The family is an important structure; in order to function well it requires more organized thought and mindful communication than going through the motions. It is a lot easier said than done in our society today.” Christi Benz, mother of four in Granite Bay, Ca.
