Paula S. Newman, PLLC is a Professional Limited Liability Company that provides behavioral counseling and consulting services. Dr. Paula Sanders Newman is the sole practitioner, who is an Educational Psychologist, Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor, and Nationally Certified Counselor who provides individual, family, and group therapy for children, adolescents, and young adults. It is very important to me that I provide quality services. I take a client-centered approach toward helping those I work with develop the insight and skills necessary to meet behavioral and emotional challenges. I enjoy working with children and families to help them identify and achieve their goals. I offer a combination of skill and insight-building activities, play therapy, parent education, behavioral therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, and supportive counseling in my treatment approach. My counseling approach is informed by Adlerian, Family Systems, and Cognitive Behavioral theories. I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from East Carolina University (Greenville, NC), a Master’s degree in Counseling from Webster University (St. Louis, MO), and a Doctor of Philosophy degree in Psychology from Walden University (Minneapolis, MN). I have worked in behavioral health since 1992. I have been a practicing licensed professional counselor since 2005, then became a Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor in 2015.
