Exceptional at teaching behavior management strategies. Dr. Vining is very kind to the children and showed us how to begin shaping behavior without yelling or threatening.

Great experience at Dr. Vining's office (The Psychology Clinic). We are warmly greeted, our sessions start on time, and he is extremely patient with children and in answering parents' questions. Collaborative goals are established and frequently monitored. If you are looking for behavioral options over medication, this option is certainly worth considering.

Friendly staff greeted us upon arrival. The appointment started on time, and Dr. Vining had already read our file. We spoke about our child's concerns, and he listened intently. Then, he started small talk with our daughter. As she began to relax, he asked when she last cut herself. What was he talking about; our daughter doesn't cut herself. "Earlier this week," she replied. We were speechless. How he knew to ask this is beyond me, but he explained that our daughter seemed overwhelmed with anxiety and lacked adequate coping skills. She reverted to cutting herself to gain a sense of control and override the emotional with physical pain; something she could handle. We took her every two weeks to therapy and saw steady improvements. He taught her coping skills that didn't involve medicine. Dr. Vining is VERY behavioral, but it worked, and that's all that mattered.

Dr. Vining has a deep understanding of the brain and behavior, but is able to put it in words that others can more easily grasp. He is very good at connecting with people, the lead psychologist at The Psychology Clinic, and our first call if our child needs help again.

The Psychology Clinic has helped us tremendously. We PCSed from Fort Bragg and needed a child therapist for our boys. The staff was professional and friendly, we were seen at our designated time, and Dr. Vining was incredible with the kids. Not only did their behavior improve, but he taught us how to better work with ADHD and defiance. The change is our home is welcome.

IEP, 504, FBA, and BIP sounded like a foreign language. I didn't know Dr. Vining had worked as a school psychologist, but he helped us with the school and our son got the help was needing.

What is it like to see your daughter smile for the first time after she attempted suicide? There is no amount of thanks that I can offer nor any price that I wouldn’t pay to take my child to Dr. Vining again if she needed it.

Dr. Vining is friendly, personable, positive and, humorous as well. He always manages to put a smile on my daughter's face after every visit (which is hard to do). I would recommend him to everyone, without hesitation.

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).
