Sometimes kids, like adults, can benefit from therapy. Therapy can help kids develop problem-solving skills and also teach them the value of seeking help. Therapists can help kids and families cope with stress and a variety of emotional and behavioral issues. Many kids need help dealing with school stress, such as homework, test anxiety, bullying, or peer pressure. Others need help to discuss their feelings about family issues, particularly if there's a major transition, such as a divorce, move, or serious illness. At Thrive Counseling- we utilize play therapy as a research supported modality in working with young children. Play Therapy with children is very different from that with adults as c....

Is your child "out of control" and will not listen to anything you say? Or maybe your child has "ants in their pants" and cannot sit still or focus? I can help! Children are my passion. They are our tomorrow so I will invest in them today. Children have a lot to say, but most adults don't speak "kid language." I do! When I work with a child, I want them to know they are "seen and heard." That makes all the difference. Through play therapy, a child feels safe enough to "act out" emotions, past/current traumas, and struggles through the toys they choose and in themes of play. Once a child works through their play, symptoms often times subside.

Many times, child therapists overdo the family system in their quest to seek effective solutions for emotional, learning or behavioral concerns with young children. And many times doctors overpathologize issues that shouldn’t be medicated necessarily. This leaves parents wondering what is the best route for their child? 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 firstname.lastname@example.org or 877-606-6161.

I work with children as young as age four in areas of anxiety, school problems, behavioral problems, adjustment issues, sexual trauma, and any other significant issues. Early intervention is the most effective way to treat current problems and prevent future problems. In addition to play therapy, and cognitive behavioral therapy, we also use parent child interaction therapy to treat this fragile population.

My approach in working with pre-adolescence through age 18 is establishing trust with them first and foremost. I enjoy helping children develop self-esteem so that they feel empowered to be successful in their life with their parents, friends, and at school. I also facilitate communication sessions between children and their parents to help improve their relationship. I teach children and their families communication skills, validation skills, and help families make developmental adjustments as their children get older so that their child can take personal responsibility for their actions and therefore they are rewarded with privileges and more freedom.

Is your child struggling with nightmares, tantrums, fear, bed wetting, incontinence, or trauma? We strongly feel that early intervention is the best method. Rather than allowing patterns and behaviors to become ingrained, we help children through expressive play therapy to process emotions, confront fears, and develop new skills/behaviors. We often find that parents are too close to their children to see when there are significant problems developing and it is the voice of teachers, friends, or other parents that make subtle suggestions about getting your child some additional resources. Pay attention to those suggestions they might see something you do not see. We are here to help!

I have worked with young children for 27 years as a special education teacher. I learned ways of helping them be successful. My internship was counseling young children at a private school that was created to help children with learning problems. Many children I counseled had more than one disability. I realize that it is not easy to raise a child who has the extra burden of coping with a disability or an emotional disorder, but there are many things a parent can do to help their child. I can teach you these ways. I take children from 12-17 years of age.

Children a very special people. They are NOT small adults. They learn through play, and how express themselves through play. They also learn by what they see and not by what their told. Expressive therapies have been shown to be the most influential ways to treat children. I have been involved in expressive therapies for over 25 years and have been very successful working with children with learning disorders, PTSD, depression and ADHD. I have also been successful with teaching parents effective parenting skills specific to their child’s behaviors.
