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

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.

Child Counselor

Megan Woodward, MA, LMHC, MBA, NCC

Licensed Mental Health Counselor

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 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.

Children are sweet, sensitive, naive and trusting. Many children enter a world where there is more chaos than they deserve. Chaos challenges the ability o function optimally. In working with adults, parents and caregivers, I guide and educate adults in children lives how to Make best available choices while functioning under stress. By doing such, the adult is modeling for the chikd(ren) effective, strategic and positive ways of coping. As well, I work With children helping them identify, define and express their sometimes complex emotions. By effectively processing feelings children are then able to go on to play , properly develop age appropriately and build a healthy strong self.

Child Psychologist

Sherry Henig, Ph.D.

Clinical Psychologist

37 Lent Drive, Plainview, NY

Having a troubled child can be very upsetting, whether the child seems worried, sad, angry, or oppositional. My work focuses on alleviating the child's suffering as well as helping the parent learn strategies to feel more effective in dealing with their child's problems. In helping young children, I usually work with the child (through talking therapy and/or play therapy,) the parent (through exploring behavioral and communication strategies) and the parent-child relationship (through assisting the family members to communicate better and collaborate on solutions to the problems.) My approach is eclectic and includes psychodynamic, behavioral and cognitive behavioral element

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).

Child Counselor

Hal Brickman, LCSW, RCSW, CSW, MSW, CHT

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.
