Rolynda Simpson has a genuine interest in advocating for students who feel they have no voice, or self-worth. She helped my daughter regain her self-confidence and value by encouraging her to recognize her strengths and interests outside of school. My daughter achieved her goals and was proud of who she was. We are thankful for Rolynda's guidance and compassion. She made a difference in my daughter’s life. ~ Lisa ~
Rolynda has the ability to develop rapport in a down-to-earth fashion, with sincere compassion and acute understanding, which then provides the foundation for therapeutic trust. This trusting relationship fosters the opportunity for meaningful change within her clients. ~ Catherine ~
Rolynda's empathy helped to make me feel comfortable enough to really dive in and talk about things. She has a wonderful way leading a person to the answers themselves. The trusting relationship we developed encouraged me explore my feelings and come to closure. I encourage anyone reading this website to at least meet Rolynda once to see for yourself what a truly compassionate person she is. ~ J.S. ~
My daughter struggles with a learning disability. She is an intensely bright, imaginative, creative, sensitive and caring child with endless potential. However, her ability to show what she can do and knows has at times been lost within a system that sometimes struggles to support learners who are outside the "norm". The results of which took a tole on my daughter's self esteem and belief in her abilities.
Right from the beginning, Rolynda saw and embraced my daughter for everything that she has to offer. She is genuinely invested in the emotional and mental well-being of youth. It is there in the way she speaks to them and of them; her care and regard for them.
Rolynda encouraged, supported and helped build a plan to have my daughter be an active participant in her own education and offered my daughter life long tools to advocate for herself. As a result, my daughter's confidence grew. Rolynda was also an amazing support in the plan and process of managing my daughter's anxiety. Her knowledge and willingness to support my daughter in the use of CBT tools allowed my daughter to manage her anxiety in the school environment and feel safe and understood when she struggled.
Rolynda was a constant team player with me as a parent; listening to and validating my concerns and then working with me to implement a plan to to address whatever challenges arose. She was always flexible in her approach and looking at what was not working and seeking out or trying something that might work better while at the same time allowing my daughter to set out, ask for and voice what she needed so that she was an active participant of the team as well.
There is no doubt in my mind that Rolynda has been instrumental in changing the path of my daughter's life within the school system and beyond. My daughter is going into high school nervous like every other young person, but also confident and sure in her ability to advocate for herself and what she has to offer the world.
I really can't say enough about the value of what Rolynda has to offer and I would rightly recommend her to anyone in need of working through change or a difficult or challenging time.
My highest regards, Sharon
Rolynda was my son's teacher...but she was so much more than that. She was his constant supporter, encourager and friend, especially on those days when he felt like he didn't have any. However she didn't just support Jonathan, she also constantly supported my husband and I through some difficult days. She was a bright light for us all during some of Jonathan's darkest days when he truly felt no one was on his side. She showed a genuine concern for Jonathan's well being, not only his academics but socially as well. To this day, we owe Rolynda so much gratitude for never giving up on Jonathan and always insisting he work hard and be the best he could possibly be. Any youth working with Rolynda will leave smiling and feeling positive about themselves and any parent can rest assured she is an incredibly positive advocate for your child's well being and self esteem! Lots of love and best wishes for incredible success, Julie and Shane
