Families play an important role in children’s healing processes. The interaction between children’s problems and their families is always complex. Sometimes children develop problems as a way of signaling that there is something wrong in the family. Other times the entire family becomes distressed because the child’s problems are so disruptive. In all cases, children and families heal faster when they work together. The play therapist will make some decisions about how and when to involve some or all members of the family in the play therapy. At a minimum, the therapist will want to communicate regularly with the child’s caretakers to develop a plan for resolving problems as they are identified and to monitor the progress of the treatment.

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

Susan Steffey, Ms.ed, LCPC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

Within Driving Distance of Forest Park, IL

I can work with children who are verbal from 6 or 7 and up. I can also treat them with EMDR. When I work with a young child, I insist that the parents see me seperately at least once to get a feel for the dynamics of the family and if there have been any losses, or traumas in the family. Having rased children myself I know how to help children feel "safe"and comfortable with me.

Child Counselor

Denise Ambre, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Psychoanalyst

Within Driving Distance of Forest Park, IL

Understanding the unique needs of my younger clients, I offer therapeutic services specifically designed to help children and adolescents. Given that younger clients frequently have difficulty putting their feelings into words, children require therapists who understand and specialize in their developmental and emotional needs. Therapy with children and adolescents can take a variety of forms. Frequently I use play therapy, which relies upon using the language of a child’s imaginary play to provide a greater understanding of the young client’s emotions.

Child Counselor

Alicia Stalker-Gallichio, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Forest Park, IL

I work with children as young as age four. In addition to family therapy, play therapy is the method I use to engage younger children on an individual basis. Younger children may have difficulty expressing their thoughts and feelings in words, but can express them through drawing, painting, storytelling, games, as well as symbolic play with puppets, dolls, etc. Play therapy activities depend on the child's developmental age and the therapy goals. Although I nearly always use play therapy techniques with younger children, play therapy may also be appropriate with many older children.
