Over the past 30 years Sarah Mckennon has offered human services to children, youth and adults with concerning behavioral patterns. Through observations over this timeframe she found the most significant improvement with child behavioral concerns were made when parents provided: Focused and caring parenting techniques, they established a positive support system, strived for a healthy lifestyle, and had a deep desire to help their child become an independent and positive member of their community for generations to come.
Mrs. McKennon is a Qualified Mental Health Professional holding a Master’s in Professional Counseling from Liberty University and a Bachelor’s in Administration of Justice from George Mason University. This unique combination of educational experiences has allowed her to better understand the mental health impact of the justice system on juveniles and adults as well as social, human, and moral issues raised through the administration of justice procedures. Prior to completing her degrees she worked in institutions, group homes and community support programs for developmentally and physically disabled persons, incarcerated individuals, and the chronically ill. She developed a holistic healing perspective which includes the development of positive support systems to assist in fostering continued successes in her clients once services have ended. Most recently she developed the Visitation Center where family support services are offered to parents needing third party Supervised Visitation for their children. Parent’s can find a safe homelike environment, educational and coaching support at this new facility in Ruther Glen, VA.
