Who We Serve
Cornerstone Pediatric Center serves children and families throughout West Virginia and the surrounding areas. Our primary focus is pediatrics, ranging from birth through the transition into adulthood. We provide individualized treatment programs for children with special needs, children experiencing or recovering from trauma (medically fragile, foster care/abuse and neglect, injuries), and children who may be experiencing some bumps in the road that are prohibiting them from fully engaging in and participating life. This might present as challenges with stress or anxiety, articulation or communication difficulties, or learning challenges.

Kathy is a MNRI® Core in Training with nearly 300 hours of formal training in addition to countless hours of research and lecture attendance.

What Makes Cornerstone Different?
“Isn’t all therapy the same? We’ve been seeing the same therapists for years and haven’t made much progress. What’s so different about Cornerstone Pediatric Center?”
All therapy is not the same. At Cornerstone, you will feel the difference as soon as you walk in the door. You will continue to see it throughout your child’s evaluation and treatment. We focus on quality care for your child and family. Our therapists are knowledgeable and passionate about their work. While our therapy is interactive and playful, it is also very purposeful and neurophysiologically based. All of our interventions have a bottom-up approach, starting with a solid foundation then building skills and development. Our therapists want to facilitate growth and progress for your child to be a confident, thriving individual.
