“The days are long but the years are short” is my favorite quote when describing the life of a parent. Being a parent can be rewarding, but usually comes with it challenges. As a mental health counselor in a school environment for 6 years, I helped pre-teens and young adults navigate bullying, anxiety, depression, academic techniques, career development and college preparation, and relationship issues (family and peers). I work with individuals 11 and older using talk therapy while integrating structured activities. As you spend much more time with your child then the 60 minutes I do in session, a primary focus is strengthening the child and parent relationship and involving parents in the counseling process.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker
347 Lincoln Avenue East, Cranford, New Jersey 07016
I help with children as young as nine years old learn how to feel their feelings and take personal responsibility for them rather than make others responsible for how they feel. And then how to manage, communicate and release their feelings appropriately. I also help children build higher self worth, be more compassionate with themselves and learn how to make better choices.

Wise parents bring young children in for counseling for both preventative mental health, and early intervention before problems become entrenched. I work successfully with young children and their families with eating disorders, behavioral problems, attention deficit disorder, school avoidance and school phobia, difficulties with peers, siblings, and parental relationships. I also work with children challenged or frightened by medical symptoms and problems, and help families to learn strategies to cope and transform the challenges into experiences that lead to strength and family cohesiveness.

Marion Rollings, PhD
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
