Child Counselor

Amy Price, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

1740 La Costa Meadows Drive, Suite 104, San Marcos, CA

I have a lot of experience working with young children using play therapy and expressive therapies. When appropriate and possible, I like to include the parents and siblings to play with us so that we can cement positive bonds from the child's understanding and developmental stage. Play therapy is a tremendous tool to access fears, hopes, dreams, and the strengths within the child to heal from divorce, grief or trauma.

Child Counselor

Andrew Last, L.M.F.T., C.S.A.T

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

11665 Avena Pl. Suite #206, San Diego , CA

Struggling with your child's behaviors? Is your child angry, depressed, or suffering from family issues? I work very well with children helping them to process their emotions and develop healthy ways of coping. I also spend a lot of time working with parents to equip them with the skills to connect with and better help their child navigate and overcome their current struggle. Every child's personality and situation is unique. This requires a therapist who can help problem solve with parents to find the best solution for their particular child. Rather than following a particuar formula I will work with you to give your child the help they need. Call today for a consultation.

Child Psychologist

Joanne Wendt, Ph.D.

Clinical Psychologist

12535 Camino Emparrado, San Diego (Rancho Bernardo), CA

No man is an island and this couldn't be more true for a child in distress.When a child is having behavior disorders such as ADHD, ODD or emotional disorders of depression and anxiety, there is a great impact on the child's family as well. Dr. Wendt has successfully treated children with these disorders using a combination of individual and family therapy interventions to help manage and alleviate the symptoms that are preventng the child and his/her family from enjoying all what life has to offer. Educating and helping the child's family understand the dynamics of the disorder and how they can actively be part of the solution goes a long way in improving the emotional health of all members.

Child Counselor

Vicki Grove, LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

2385 S. Melrose Drive, Vista, CA

Teenagers are often misunderstood and feel unheard by the adults in their lives. I can provide that supportive, non-judgmental ear to teens who are struggling with depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, cutting, and social and parental relationship problems. I can also provide guidance for parents in parenting these wonderful teens in a way that invites love and respect.

Child Psychologist

Aleksandra Drecun, Psy.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

12526 High Bluff Drive, Suite 300, San Diego, CA

Working with young children requires that the professional possesses specialized knowledge and skills that enable them to identify problem behaviors and formulate appropriate interventions that are developmentally appropriate for the child. As a psychologist trained to work with children and families, I develop individualized treatment plans appropriate to each child's and family's specific needs. Working with children, I use an playful approach which will engage the child in addressing any psychic conflicts they may be experiencing and find healthy ways to address those conflicts so that children can function at their most optimal level in all facets of life.

Child Counselor

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

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.
