Meet Marcia

My name is Marcia Brown.  I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Therapist and have focused my education and career on parenting support.  I have a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology and a Master's of Social Work, both from University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Since 2010, I have been providing evidence-based  therapies and programs to parents and children together.   These evidence-based programs focus on strengthening the bond and attachment between caregiver and child, as well as providing concrete, practical tools and strategies to address behavior challenges.  I believe that in-the-moment coaching and supported hands on practice are the most effective ways to create lasting positive change in the dynamic between you and your child. 

Parenting is really hard.  Parent-Child Interaction Therapy helps make it a lot easier.  If you are having difficulties with your child's behavior, you've come to the right place. Help is available for a variety of concerns including:

Intense Tantrums and Overreactions

Impulsive Behavior

Strained Parent-Child Relationship

Refusal to Follow Directions

Challenging Behavior in Public

Aggressive or Destructive Behavior

ADHD

Autism Spectrum Disorder

School Behavior Problems

Challenges Unique to Foster Parents

How It Works

Services are available for parents and caregivers of children ages 2 to 9 years old.  I use an evidence-based model called Parent-Child Interaction Therapy to provide you with strategies to effectively get through the most challenging parenting situations.  Sessions are play based, include parent and child together, and coach you and your child through a series of tools that build on each other.  40 years of progressive research shows these strategies are highly effective in addressing child behavior issues.  I can help you understand what is going on with your child and how to address the problems so you can get back to being the parent you want to be.

Everything that is important in the world, we learn within the context of human relationships, with the parent child relationship being the most fundamental.
