Calvalyn’s Counseling Philosophy
“When you know better, you do better” -Maya Angelou
My personal counseling style is to use counseling to help you clearly see the areas where you can be better and to teach the individual skills to achieve the desired results. As a licensed middle school counselor, I am particularly passionate about helping children and adolescents bridge into adulthood. By helping parents use specific strategies, I will work with you to teach children how to safely test the waters of independence while fortifying the values and beliefs that will serve as an anchor in their lives.
I have a particular passion for working with students who are classified as at risk or who exhibit difficult behaviors like low motivation, poor self-image or poor academic progress. My commitment to connection with children and families allows for a unique ability to elicit an openness to change. My style of counseling is equally effective at supporting children and teens while encouraging families to make tough choices in order to achieve the goals that they set.
