The Seneca Falls Health Center located on the campus of New York Chiropractic College is offering new services in an effort to better meet the needs of the community and to broaden its complementary healthcare therapies. The additions include mental health care, podiatry, and dyslexia correction. The center will continue to provide chiropractic care, internal medicine, massage therapy, acupuncture and oriental medicine. Terry Crane McDonald, Licensed Master Social Worker (LMSW) in the state or New York, recently began providing mental health care at the Seneca Falls Health Center (SFHC). Her practice provides individual, family and group therapy and covers such areas as marital and family issues; building healthy relationships; child and adolescent behavioral problems; ADD/ADHD; parenting; domestic abuse; alcohol and drug abuse and addiction, sexual identity; education and vocation; spirituality; anxiety and panic; depression; stress; grief; meditation, relaxation; self-esteem, assertiveness and empowerment; anger management; and obsessive/compulsive disorders. Terry says people often seek counseling when they feel “stuck.” Becoming more aware of who they are helps introduce a renewed power, freedom and happiness. Psychotherapy can help this effort. Ms. McDonald earned a bachelor’s in social work from Marycrest International University and her Master of Social Work from St. Ambrose University. She completed family development leadership training at Cornell University, and is a member of the National Association of Social Work. Drs. Carrie O’Neill, DPM, and Vicki Miller-Savard, DPM, of Complete Foot Care, also recently opened an office at the Health Center. They offer a wide range of podiatric care - specializing in foot surgery and the treatment of many common ailments such as fungal nails; in-grown toe nails; plantar warts; heel pain; bunions; hammer toes; and fallen arches. Foot care knows no age limits and both pediatric and senior patients are welcomed. The doctors, excited about their new centralized location, feel it will facilitate treatment of patients from Seneca Falls and the surrounding communities. Complete Foot Care has been located in the Finger Lakes region since 2004. They plan to continue hours at their Newark, NY, office and to maintain privileges with Geneva General, Newark and Clifton Springs hospitals. Dr. O’Neill is a graduate of Elmira College and Temple University and Dr. Miller-Savard is graduated from Cornell University and the Dr. William M. Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine. Both are members of the American and New York State Podiatric Medicine associations. The Seneca Falls Health Center now offers a dyslexia correction program implemented by Lisa Anderson, a certified Davis Dyslexia Correction® Facilitator, licensed with Davis Dyslexia Association International. She operates a learning center that focuses on the root causes of learning difficulties and uses the individual’s own strengths and talents to help overcome these difficulties. Her clients learn to recognize and correct disorientations; focus attention; eliminate confusion in words, symbols and numbers, and increase self confidence and ability in reading, writing, math and physical skills. The learning center provides individualized programs to help children and adults who experience difficulties in reading, writing, spelling, math, listening comprehension, ADD/ADHD, handwriting and motor coordination. Lisa says that early intervention is beneficial in improving academic performance in children, but as long as the client is motivated, it is never too late for help. She was inspired to become a Davis Facilitator after her son, a dyslexic, found success from the program. Ms. Anderson possesses a bachelor’s degree from the University of Rochester, earned her Master of Science in Education at SUNY Cortland and is a full time teacher at Mynderse Academy in Seneca Falls.
