Child Counselor

Kelly Montgomery, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of El Cerrito, CA

I can work with families that have young children and the dynamics that that brings. I typically with work with the couple in intergrating a new phase of life and not the child and in some instances with the family as a whole depending on the age of the child. Motherhood and Fatherhood of a little one's is a uprooting ever changing time and learning how to cope and adapt can be paramount.

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.

Child Counselor

Matthew Lindgren, MFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of El Cerrito, CA

Matt Lindgren is a male child therapist who offers play therapy & conjoint family play therapy to help children with behavioral problems, child abuse, domestic violence, and foster care. Whenever possible, I attempt to have a parent/caregiver present during play therapy sessions, as an active participant. I find therapy is more effective if children can connect with the important people in their lives during a session as a way of healing. I'm one of a few Oakland therapists trained to use EMDR & Somatic Experiencing interventions with children in play therapy. I've adapted these techniques to use them in play, making play therapy much more powerful.

Children can benefit from therapy if they are currently facing stressors. It helps children develop problem-solving skills and also the value of seeking assistance before things get hard. I help the children and their families cope with stressors, that results in emotional and behavioral issues. I am able to assist children who are currently dealing with school stressors, such as homework, test anxiety, peer pressure or a significant life event such as the death of a family member, friend,pet and from a divorce. I help children and family members with tools and skills to cope with changes in the behavior, appetite, social functioning, sleep, which affects all other family members.

I provide a 10-week structured parenting program to help the parents of children who have been diagnosed with ADHD, who are behaving in oppositional, out of control and defiant ways. You will learn the origins of problematic child behavior and the ways in which you may be unwittingly reinforcing it. I will work to help you improve your relationship with your child by teaching you how to powerfully shape your child's behavior with praise instead of punishment. I will also teach you how use punishment more effectively when it becomes necessary.

Child Counselor

Kathryn Kinsey, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within Driving Distance of El Cerrito, CA

My training was originally in child therapy and I spent many years working directly with children in play therapy (sand tray and art therapy) and family treatment. Rather than working directly with the child, I now focus on consultation with caretakers to help them create the changes the child needs to develop fully. This may include family meetings, collaboration with other significant people in the child's life (teachers, doctors, babysitters, extended family members, ministers, Counselors) and referral to appropriate services.

Child Counselor

Laurie Chandler, MA

LMFT 86949

Within Driving Distance of El Cerrito, CA

Sandplay therapy, art and play therapy help young children communicate. Children usually cannot put their concerns into words. They may not know what is bothering them. The forms of therapy I use give children a place and way to communicate and work through issues related to tension in the home, divorce, death, abuse, bullying, separation anxiety, new-school/grade fears, anger and other emotions. I work privately with the child and consult with the parents to help their child have a happy and healthy childhood.

Child Counselor

Sean Faulkner, MFTi

Marriage and Family Therapist Intern

Within Driving Distance of El Cerrito, CA

I find that counseling with children is most effective with the cooperation and collaboration of the child's parents or primary caregivers. Together with you, the child's parent/guardian, I will develop a treatment plan for how we can best meet your child's needs. Issues in younger children can sometimes be symptoms of issues in the family system, so family involvement is an essential component in supporting your child.
