How It Works

Services are available for parents and caregivers of children ages 2 to 11 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.

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.

“Everyone is happier. We are less on edge, anticipating an extreme behavior response. We see the biggest change in how [our son] responds to directions and listens.  We have a procedure for what to do and when to do it. Real-time coaching was most helpful. Now that we've practiced, we are better skilled for future behavior struggles. We appreciate everything Marcia did to help us. We are forever thankful!!!!”

I feel like there was real progress with [my daughter]. All of our meetings where enjoyable and productive. Thank you so much! She really made [my daughter] comfortable and she very much loved our meetings and special play time!"
