Children tend to react to life's circumstance depending upon their stage of development. Their ability to verbally express their fears and frustrations, and to problem solve is limited. Often, their fears and anxiety become evident in their behavior. Phyllis uses specific play techniques to help children, together with their parents' participation, to develop confidence, learn to communicate, overcome frustration, avoid control battles, build impulse control, develop social skills, express themselves, and meet their ultimate potential.

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.

In addition to my work with adolescents and adults, I also work with young children (ages 3 to 12) using play & art therapy plus. A large component of that work is with their parent(s). After spending more than 25 years with parents who have children who are emotionally unstable, oppositionally defiant, socially shy, bullied, or otherwise struggling, I have an edge on knowing how to teach optimal parenting. In addition to my licenses as an MFT & MHC, I am also a licensed Speech-Language Pathologist & Audiologist. Hence I also work with children who are ADD, ADHD, LD, speech and/or language Impaired, & hard of hearing or deaf. When I help a child, I help the family. A double whamee.

Helping you find wholeness...

Location Near Therapist: Clifton, NJ

Young children are not little adults but yet they are whole people. Children process things differently but also exhibit good resilience in many situations. In working with young children, it is especially important to work with them where they are at and in ways that allow them to relate tot he journey that is being made. When this is successful, the child not only is able to find wholeness and peace in the present but have a firm foundation for finding this in the future. A dimension of working with a child is working with the adults that are significant in that child's life. Christopher looks forward to this journety together with you.

I am knowledgeable about young children, as I have a doctorate in child psychology. I am happy to advise or help parents with young children, who are taking a little longer to potty train, having a lot of tantrums, bedwetting, falling behind in school, may have a learning disability. I work closely with the parents, and in many cases would not treat the child directly. I usually focus on and get to know the parent, how I can best support them as a parent, as a spouse, and as a person in the world.

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 kevin@kevinflemingphd.com or 877-606-6161.

As a licensed family therapist, a former elementary school teacher and having raised a family, I have devotion and experience in addressing the needs of children. When parents contact me to provide therapy or anger management for their young children, I respond by bringing the parent or family into treatment as well. While I provide therapy for teens as individuals, I provide parenting skill therapy, explore educational concerns and offer family counseling as treatment to address the child's issues.

Like adults, a child’s behavior can change when (s)he is feeling stressed out. Common symptoms are suddenly seeming withdrawn, worried, stressed, sulky or tearful. Therapy can help kids improve their problem-solving skills and also teach them the value of seeking help. The kinds of problems that are addressed include: school stress (homework, bullying or peer pressure), family issues (parents fighting, impending divorce or other transitions like a loss, move or serious illness). If you feel your child might have an emotional or behavioral problem or needs help coping with a difficult life event, trust your instincts and call for a consultation.

A relationship built on trust is vital to the success of any treatment involving a child. The young person in treatment must feel comfortable, safe and understood, in an environment in which honest thoughts and feelings can be expressed, often for the first time. The therapeutic relationship that develops in this environment enables improved expression of feelings and behavior, leading to growth and improvement in interpersonal relationships at home, in school and elsewhere.
