Trisha Dyer LPC/A, joined the Child and Family Development team earlier this year and is transitioning to a more permanent role now.  She is a licensed professional counselor associate who works at both the Pineville and Midtown offices.  

After years of volunteering in Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools, she recognized her interest in working with children on a deeper level in regard to social, emotional and behavioral issues. She returned to school to pursue a Master of Arts in Counseling with a focus in School Counseling at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte with a specific interest in social issues confronting and confounding children and adolescents and, in particular, bullying. While there, she focused much on classroom guidance, as well as small group sessions.  In the counseling room, she worked individually and in small groups on wide-ranging social, emotional and behavioral issues. Over the last few months at C&FD, she has worked children and adolescents on improving social skills, coping mechanisms, managing ADHD, anxiety and other developmental difficulties. 

Welcome Trisha- officially!
