"While We Try To Teach Our Children All About Life, Our Children Teach Us What Life Is All About"
by Angela Schwindt
My name is Janine Denoncourt and I am a licensed clinical social worker with almost 15 years of experience working with young children and their families in a variety of mental health settings. Nothing is more rewarding than being an infant mental health/child and family therapist with Carolina Parenting Solutions, PLLC. I am passionate about promoting positive parent-child interactions, healthy child development and building upon parental competencies. I am dedicated to providing thoughtful, compassionate, individualized psychotherapy to help meet the needs, concerns, and priorities of your family.
Behavioral, emotional and developmental issues can be stressful and overwhelming for the entire family. In my work I am always sure to involve parents in the process. I see parents as allies in the treatment process and will work with you to help you better understand your child’s needs and concerns and to find more effective ways to respond to these concerns and achieve a greater sense of well being. I believe that parents are the experts regarding your own children, and parents know their children better than anyone else. Therefore, utilizing parents’ knowledge and expertise is a vital part of helping make positive changes and I feel honored to be welcomed into your home to be part of this process. I understand that what may work in helping one child and his or her family meet their goals may not work for another.
I earned a B.A. in psychology from the University of Massachusetts-Amherst, and a Masters of Social Work from Smith College School for Social Work. I am a member of the National Association of Social Workers (NASW). In addition to having extensive experience working with young children and their families I have developed, managed and worked directly with programs large and small, public and private and have conducted research in areas of infant parent psychotherapy and behavioral and emotional challenges of children in foster care. I also supervise and train aspiring infant mental health specialists. I have lived in North Carolina for 10 years, originally from Western Massachusetts. I am happily married and a proud parent of three beautiful children-Angelina, Madden and Parker. I love watching my children play sports on the weekends, visiting our family, and boating on Lake Norman. I enjoy baking and photography. By experiencing the joy of motherhood myself I am passionately drawn to this field in hopes of empowering other parents and helping others find as much joy as I do in parenting. I look forward to the privilege of learning about your child and your family’s experiences as well as the journey that has brought you to Carolina Parenting Solutions, PLLC.
