Dr. Valencia Campbell-Chapin LPC-S, RPT-S, LCDC, CSC
Are you tired of those frustrating phone calls from the school saying that your child got into another fight? Or has been suspended again? Are you tired of looking at your child’s behavior sheet and seeing multiple numbers circled? If you are tired of your child’s color being changed to red or number being change, I understand your frustration. Having 20 years of experience working in the public schools as a Certified School Counselor and Special Ed Teacher, I can help.
I can give your child the tools they need to stay on green. I can help your child learn how to get along with others, control their anger, and think things through before reacting. My goal is to improve lives, while creating a healthy climate for positive change.

Dr. Paulette Edwards LPC
Greetings, I am Dr. Paulette Edwards. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with a PhD in Marriage and Family Therapy. I have extensive experience with Individuals, Couples, Families, Children and Groups in a variety of settings including military, non-profit community, and faith based. I have worked with individuals experiencing grief, loss, depression, anxiety, and low self-esteem. I have worked with couples experiencing marital distress, infidelity, and domestic violence. I have worked with Special Populations including individuals who are part of the LBGTQ+ community, children with special needs, individuals identified with ADHD, and families/individuals facing immigration concerns.
I believe that people are social beings, and our closest relationships are the hardest to successfully maintain and thrive in. In therapy, we can work on strategies that build on the strengths you already have and promote resilience in difficult circumstances; and we can develop or enhance skills such as conflict resolution, forgiveness, problem solving, crisis management, grief, healthy boundaries, and anger management. Together, we can define your goals; your future as an individual, a couple or a family is not dictated or defined by your past or your current circumstances.
