Child Counselor

Don Sinkfield, MS

LMHC, Anger Management Specialist 2

Children counseling focuses on helping them to express feelings that they can not readily identify or talk about with parents or teachers. By developing a vocabulary related to their emotions, children get a better understanding of themselves and they become more secure and confident. When a child has a counselor that they truly connect with, it is like having a friend or confidant without the risk of peer gossip or disapproval.

Child Counselor

Megan Woodward, MA, LMHC, MBA, NCC

Licensed Mental Health Counselor

Franklin Square, NY

My approach to counseling and supporting young children (experienced most in ages 5+) involves using play therapy and psycho-educational materials in a safe and supportive environment. This approach allows young children to safely explore fears and anxieties, learn healthy boundaries for interacting with others socially, and learn healthy ways to express emotions. I also work with parents to equip them with resources and tools to support behavioral changes at home through the use of token economies and effective parenting methods.

Child Psychologist

Patricia Pitta, Ph.D., A.B.P.P.

Clinical and Board Certified Family Psychologist

35 Bonnie Heights Road, Manhasset, NY

When a child is presented for treatment barring organic causes, the first question one asks, " Who has the problem?" Is it the child, parents, school or the interactions of all?" After interviewing the child and parents (conducted in both family and individual sessions), I present the parents with an evaluation. Dependent on the severity of the child's problems and the ability of the parents to mobilize their parenting skills, it is decided to address the presenting problems with individual sessions as well as family sessions. My attempt is to minimize the treatment of the child and enable the parents to learn to parent through "Creative Loving" (a program that Dr. PItta created).

New York State Licensed Clinical Social Worker

The most malleable of us all. Therefore, that segment of our society that can be most easily molded, sculpted. Since the sculptist is almost always the parents their cooperation in the therapy process cannot be emphasized enough. They are makers or breakers of it. That is why the creation of a trusting alliance with them is critical. However, respecting the boundaries and confidentiality too of the child's work (therapy) with myself. The child is allowed to express, within reason, their individuality. Encouragement is given for adaptive risk-taking and self-soothing mechanisms. I create, a safe, predictable, environment.

Child Counselor

Michelle Conti, Psy.D.

NYS Licensed Clinical Psychologist

2889 Davis St., Oceanside, NY

I have worked with children from birth to 17 years in various modalities including individual, group, parent-child, and multi-family group therapy. Many parents have concerns related to behavioral difficulties at home and/or at school. While my goal is to help improve these behaviors and provide the child with tools and coping skills so that they can make better behavioral choices, I also believe it is important to involve the parent as much as possible in the therapy, so that the parent can maintain their authority and respect. In addition, I believe that it is important to focus on the parent-child relationship, to ensure that there are positive and playful interactions.
