I have worked with small children through play and it is the most rewarding of all therapy. You watch a child's story unfold in the most innocent way. Children manifest psychological symptoms much different than adults. We can work together with your child to assess their personal needs and assist them in expressing their feelings in a safe, nurturing environment.

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.
Henry A Malone, Ph.D.

ADD, ADHD, Autism, LD, TBI, Emotional Dysfunction, severely impact the development of children. As a child psychologist with extensive experience, Dr. Malone recognizes that in such conditions the Brain is not functioning adequately. The Brain can do more than think, it can actually correct and adjust itself when given the opportunity. Before introducing foreign substances into the Brain, please do give the Brain the chance to fix itself. Neurofeedback or EEG Biofeedback works, it facilitates the brain in regulating itself. Allow your child's Brain to avail of its own natural adjustment process. A Brain Map/QEEG provides the information to guide the Brain in its readjustment process.
Patricia Pitta, Ph.D., A.B.P.P.
Clinical and Board Certified Family Psychologist
Location: 35 Bonnie Heights Road, Manhasset
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).

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.

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.
