Marina Ervin, MS, LPC, NCC, BCPCC

Licensed Professional Counselor/National Certified Counselor

502-N East Cornwallis Drive Ste. B, Greensboro, North Carolina 27405

I work with children as young as two or three years of age if they are verbal. In addition, I work with the family system to make the changes needed to help them work as a family unit or team. Play therapy is the avenue that allows children to express themselves or to work through situations or issues that are creating stress for the child. Hands-on activities, therapeutic games, exercises, puppets, roleplays, sandtray, and bilbliotherapy are some of the strategies I use to help the child find healing, to help them learn to make good choices, and to be effective problem-solvers and leaders.

Licensed Counselor

When working with children my specialities are adoption, mood disorders (such as anxiety - depression - anger), and ADHD. I offer children and parents a safe, welcoming and "child" friendly environment. Your child more often then not is already feeling tense, unsure, and a bit nervous of the counseling setting. My first job will always be to relate with your child and work to help him/her feel entirely comfortable as - progress is entirely based upon your child's relationship with me. You may find that our sessions are on the floor around a board game rather then on the chair. Give me a call to book your first appointment - I also welcome you to simply call with questions to see if we are a good fit.

Parenting is not an easy task and sometimes it becomes a burden when our little ones act out. Children do not act out randomly, there is something that bothers them and is hurting them. Children, as all of us, need to feel cared for and important in the lives of significant others. When they act out, they most likely do not get the best out of their caretakers, feeling unimportant and not cared for. It is crucial to help them express their feelings and help them relate with others in a more positive way. When I work with children I always involve parents and, if applicable, school to help create an environment that nurtures change and the child's strengths.

Alan Willard, Ph.D., D.Min.

Llicensed Marriage & Family Therapist, Pastoral Counselor


Play therapy is an effective way to work with children when they don't want to talk much in counseling. Play is the natural language of a young child. Children can often express their feelings and work out their problems through the play therapy process. I also incorporate parents into therapy with their child. Parents will learn how to better respond to the feelings and behaviors that are troubling the child.

Male teens are getting into emotional and social difficulties through sex ting, pornography, sending personal photos to each other and early sexual encounters. Parents should realize that these early sexual activities profoundly influence the teens adult decisions including mate selection and employment success or failure. Helping the teen to mature early will help their life time of happiness.

Children & Adolescents I love helping children, teens, and parents through early life issues. A balanced child will enjoy much greater success in relationships and performance. I have been blessed to work with numerous children with Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD) as we work on growing focus abilities and learning to act more age appropriate. Younger children respond well to play therapy and look forward to sessions with me. Teens have responded well to working through issues while being treated with respect and compassion.

LuAnn Keener-Mikenas, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

311 Rivermont Avenue, Lynchburg, Virginia 24504

I work with parents together and individually to help them understand family structure and dynamics and to make healthy changes in parenting techniques, such as setting boundaries, practicing consistency, using choices and consequences appropriately, and practicing loving detachment. I observe parents and children together and teach effective communication skills. I use art and play therapy with children to encourage emotional expression and processing and to practice relationship skills in the clinical setting. Neuro-Integration and Emotional Freedom Technique support emotional integration, regulation, and coping.
