Empower Resiliency Counseling Center

ERCC-Counseling for children,teens,adults,families,couples that are facing challenging times either

Operating as usual


When you have a neurotypical child, you feel reasonably assured that class participation and decent study habits will result in good grades. These kids have close friends. They get invited to participate in social things like dances and weekend gatherings. They make the teams, auditions, organizations and clubs.
But when you have a child with certain differences, this is often not the case. Learning may take longer, both academically and socially. Despite their tremendous efforts, results are often a fraction of their peers and social acceptance is fleeting, setting them up for painful comparisons and bitter frustration. Instead of a fun and fulfilling experience, school can become a breeding ground for depression and anxiety, and assignments a battle ground at home. It is exhausting for parent and child alike.
This is the week of SPED (Special Education), Autism, Dyslexia, and ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) awareness.
For all the children who struggle every day to succeed in a world that does not recognize their gifts and talents, and for those who are walking beside them, please let this be a gentle reminder to be kind and accepting of ALL people.
Recognize that the "playing field" is not always a level surface.
Children who learn differently are not weird. They are merely gifted in ways that our society does not value enough. Yet they want what everyone else wants: To be accepted!!
If you choose, please "copy and paste" (by touching and holding the text) onto your profile in honor of all children who are deemed "different".
Our world would be far less beautiful without them.


Empower Resiliency during these times. Resiliency means to recoil,rebound,recover. Like elastic it can be stretched, but rebounds back to normal. Think of life like a rubberband right now~normal will return.😷......🤩

If you or a family member, friend, etc. is struggling with the evolving times we find ourselves in. First know, you are not alone, although it may feel that way. Nationally and within Virginia, the support has been amazing. I am a therapist with a HIPPA compliant telehealth system, we can virtually meet. I believe everyone has resiliency within them. Sometimes we just need help finding it. I can help with that. Take care, Stay Healthy, Protect All...


Offering during our COVID-19 times for your safety the choice of having HIPAA Secured Video Sessions for children through adults. Call for more information.

How fast a year can go!
This time last year ERCC had just relocated in November and I was still unloading boxes. Fast forward and I do mean FAST! As we head toward the end of this year. I continue to have the pleasure to work with wonderful people every day. The pumpkins and scarecrow have changed to Santa, reindeer and Ms. Claus. I want to wish all a fun filled holiday season. I am grateful to all the amazing people, little and tall that I have had the pleasure of seeing this year. Wishing a Happy Holiday Season to all!
Oh! BTW… I think I’ve heard some elves in the art and playrooms and there also was a sighting of Santa and a sleigh in the sandtray room.
Teens & Adult Alert: They didn’t find the candy stash in the counseling room. It’s still there waiting for you….WHEW!!!
