Maria Russell, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Salisbury, North Carolina 28146

Directive and non-directive play therapy are the two main ways I work with children in therapy. I use art, sand, toys and games to help children feel safe in the counseling environment. Children express themselves through play, using their imaginations to share with the therapist their thoughts and feelings. Working with young children also heavily involves the parents, teaching them new skills that help with behavior modification.

I have worked extensively with children for over 19 years. I am proud to be a nationally certified Parents as Teachers educator that enhances my interactions with the child and parent. I have been fortunate to work with children who are aggressive, cast aside and misunderstood. I am certified to work with children with inappropriate sexual behaviors and proud to serve that population. I approach dealing with children with a great deal of joy that makes them feel non-judged and important. I treat children from ages 3-18.

I work with parents to help them feel more confident about parenting their young children. You can learn to fully participate and enjoy these years that will soon be a memory. Parenting is a difficult job but also a very rewarding one. You can learn to empathize more with your child and create a parenting style that works most effectively for you.

Children are unable to express complex ideas and emotions in the same manner as adults. They express their feelings through play. In therapy, they are encouraged, through play, to lead the sessions much in the same way an adult would lead their therapy session. Working with children requires the ability to understand children on their level. Too often, adults speak to them as if they were adults and interpret their conversations on an adult level. I have been working with children for 20 years and have experience in helping them cope with PTSD, trauma, abuse, grief, stress, anxieity and other issues.

Parenting is not an easy task and sometimes it becomes a burden when our little ones act out. Children do not act out randomly, there is something that bothers them and is hurting them. Children, as all of us, need to feel cared for and important in the lives of significant others. When they act out, they most likely do not get the best out of their caretakers, feeling unimportant and not cared for. It is crucial to help them express their feelings and help them relate with others in a more positive way. When I work with children I always involve parents and, if applicable, school to help create an environment that nurtures change and the child's strengths.

Heather Hall, MSW, LCSW


4724 Park Rd, Suite A, Charlotte, North Carolina 28209

Although I work with persons of all ages, the heart of my practice is children ages 3-12. Imagine being angry, but when asked to describe how you're feeling, you could not use the word "angry." For children, toys are their words, and not giving them an opportunity to play out their feelings with toys is like taking away their words right before asking them to describe how they feel. Where adults use words, children use play to communicate and make sense of the world around them. As a result, I use a variety of play-based techniques to allow children to explore ways to handle challenges, transitions and feelings -- at their own developmental level & in their own language.

Juan Santos, M.S., CRC, LPC

Licensed Counselor

3300 Battleground Avenue Suite 303, Greensboro, North Carolina 27410

When working with children my specialities are adoption, mood disorders (such as anxiety - depression - anger), and ADHD. I offer children and parents a safe, welcoming and "child" friendly environment. Your child more often then not is already feeling tense, unsure, and a bit nervous of the counseling setting. My first job will always be to relate with your child and work to help him/her feel entirely comfortable as - progress is entirely based upon your child's relationship with me. You may find that our sessions are on the floor around a board game rather then on the chair. Give me a call to book your first appointment - I also welcome you to simply call with questions to see if we are a good fit.

Many therapists specialize in working with young children--using play therapy, for example, and I admire the work that they do. But my own approach is to hypothesize that when a child is not doing well, the problem likely resides with the parents. Thus I coach the parents to be firm and consistent. But I also coach them to work together, if they can--since child problems, seen in the context of divorcing parents, for example, might actually be a solution in that the problem is the only thing that brings the parents together as they seek to deal with the child. So resolving the parents' issues often is the key. The child cannot be made (however unintentionally) responsible for family unity.

Marina Ervin, MS, LPC, NCC, BCPCC

Licensed Professional Counselor/National Certified Counselor

502-N East Cornwallis Drive Ste. B, Greensboro, North Carolina 27405

I work with children as young as two or three years of age if they are verbal. In addition, I work with the family system to make the changes needed to help them work as a family unit or team. Play therapy is the avenue that allows children to express themselves or to work through situations or issues that are creating stress for the child. Hands-on activities, therapeutic games, exercises, puppets, roleplays, sandtray, and bilbliotherapy are some of the strategies I use to help the child find healing, to help them learn to make good choices, and to be effective problem-solvers and leaders.
