Does your child struggle with challenges in terms of communication, emotion or behaviors? Are you feeling frustrated with these issues and feel coaching may improve your relationship with your child?

Joanna Buset, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor, Specializing in Children & Adolescents

777 Passaic Avenue, Clifton, New Jersey 07012

I love working with young children because I truly believe in the importance of early intervention. The earlier we address concerns, the more fully our children can blossom. I integrate a wide variety of techniques so that I can help children on numerous different levels. I believe in a comprehensive approach, and will teach you- the parent- how to better interact with your child as well. As a mother myself, I know how much each of us wants to "get it right"... but sometimes it can be hard to know what "right" is. I can help you match your parenting technique to your child's style, so that you can reduce household conflict and encourage positive coping skills and healthy self-confidence.

Lynn DeLaurentis, MA, BCB

Christian Counselor

66 N Main Street, Medford, New Jersey 08055

Young children need a calming and friendly environment to feel safe and build a relationship that will help them heal. Developmentally appropriate games, toys, and interactive programs allow children the comfort they need to process life and restore emotional balance that was upset from divorce, separation, anxiety, depression as well as improve sleep, focus, and concentration.

Marion Rollings, PhD

Licensed Psychologist

236 West High Street, Bound Brook, New Jersey 08805

Children, particularly young children, often do not have the ability to express how they feel in words and as a result, express their feelings through behavior-often inappropriate or undesirable behavior such as hitting, defiance, school refusal, and more. Power struggles over homework, getting up on time for school, complying with parental requests are also common problems of children today. Anxious children frequently complain of stomach aches, dizzy spells, and headaches. Working closely with the child and the child's parents, I implement child behavioral techniques and provide the parents' with tools to successfully manage their child's behavior as well as resolve any emotional distress

Elizabeth MacGregor, Ed.D, LPC

Psychoanalyst, Licensed Professional Counselor

Your child or children may be suffering for reasons that are unclear. Are your children constantly angry and oppositional? Are they often hyper? Are your children doing poorly in school? As parents, do you fear you won't be able to help your child with his or her "anger management." Using empathy and sensitivity, our professionals work individually with both children, adolescents and with parents with the goal to ending the problem behavior or lowering a child's anxieties.

Corinne Pecile, MSW, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

180 Old Tappan Road, Old Tappan, New Jersey 07675

When a child needs help its not just the child entering into therapy, its the parents as well. As I work with children I make the parents essential components of the treatment team. If the work is not being followed through at home then change is not going to be possible. Let's face it our kids are smarter than we are in some ways and absorb so much. By helping the parents learn new skills that are specific to their children and help them at home, change is not only possible its inevitable.

Jay Levin, Ph.D, LCSW

Therapist/Counselor

495 Ironbridge Road Suite 8, Freehold, New Jersey 07728

Dr Levin is the immediate past president of the New Jersey Chapter of the Association for Play Therapy. He has taught numerous therapists his techniques in this specialty. Dr Levin states that "play is the child's talk, toys are the words". He brings a playful approach to children which helps them share their feelings. He is extremely proud of the numerous community referrals he receives from the medical field, the clergy, and previous clients.

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

Alpine, New Jersey 07620

Introducing brainwave optimization technology. A fast, effective, natural, and less expensive way to allow your child's brain to make the optimizing changes it desires to make---on its own! Without any external force, opinion, medication, diagnostic, etc. Contact kevin@kevinflemingphd.com or 877-606-6161.
