GIL T CUTS & FADES BARBER STUDIO
Compassionate Attention for Special Needs
As someone with a beloved family member who is challenged by sensory sensitivity, I know the fear and anxiety that often weave their way into doing the very common things that most people take for granted–like getting a haircut.
My brother is a child at heart and in mind. It breaks my heart to think of his mistreatment when people don’t understand him or his condition! I don’t want anyone to experience pain or fear because they have Autism or suffer from mental illness, or have other behavioral issues.
I’m reaching out to families with similar challenges. I want you to know that my studio is a quiet and private space and I offer each individual compassionate attention. The whole experience can be discussed ahead of time to talk about your expectations and to prepare. Please call me at 516-512-4828 and let’s talk about the special needs for you or your loved one.
If I can make it easier in anyway for another family to help their loved one enjoy getting a haircut, it would absolutely be my GIL T Pleasure!
