Ratings for Kathleen M. Salyer, Psychologist
Dr. Salyer has been extremely helpful in advising me with many difficult problems involving my children as well as a parent suffering from dementia. Dr. Salyer provided me with very good advice and suggestions on how to help my young children break bad habits. She was helpful later with advice on how to deal with bullying issues at school. More importantly, Dr. Salyer helped me and my husband in disciplining our children in a way that would be helpful to them in not only interacting with adults/teachers but also peers; she also helped us to understand when what our children were doing or saying was very normal (at that age). Not only has Dr. Salyer helped my husband and I with our children, but she has also helped me handle my mother's dementia. Having a parent suffer dementia and not knowing how to respond was extremely difficult; I would respond to my mother reasonably and logically, but the response from her were always extremely negative. Dr. Salyer coached me and on how to respond to my mother when she was angry or hallucinating. I am so grateful for her help in navigating these stages of dementia and helping me to understand the disease; the advice and coaching have help reduce my stress, anxiety, and sadness over the disease that has completely changed the mother I once knew to someone completely different. Dr. Salyer will always give you honest answers and advice as well as constructive criticism, and if you are truly wanting to help your family and yourself then you have to accept that she will tell you things you may not want to hear but will truly help your children/family. I have been able to share her advice with friends/colleagues, who later thank me because the advice was extremely helpful and gave them positive results with their children. I really don't know how I would have navigated the unchartered stages of parenting and caring for an ailing parent without Dr. Salyer, and I hope to be able to continue receiving her advice/support until all my kids have gone off to college!!
