Military life can be difficulty on kids with the deployments and frequent moves. We didn't know what to do or who to trust. One of our friends recommended Dr. Vining and we took a leap of faith. He doesn't have a magic sleigh or reindeer but kids light up when he comes in the room. At first, I thought it was the snacks and toys, but as time passed I learned it wasn't. It was his respect, honesty, and guidance. We got our child back and to Dr. Vining we thank you.

Our son's teacher recommended ADHD testing. We wanted this done privately rather than through the school. Dr. Vining met with us and listened to our concerns. We decided to proceed with testing and within only 2-3 weeks we were reviewing his results. Imagine our excitement in learning that our child did not have ADHD. Dr. Vining was patient in teaching us behavioral techniques that have helped both us and his teacher keep him on task and in his chair (at least most of the time).

Dr. Vining says...

Service in mental health began in 1996. Over the last 21 years, I have worked in a mental health clinic, partial and inpatient psychiatric facilities, schools, and private practice. Along the way were professional publications, national presentations, and a book deal. Now, at The Psychology Clinic, I use my formal training and experience for the single purpose of improving children's lives.
