Children are people, they have needs, wants, desires, fears and problems. My children clients, will be approached in a variety of ways in order to engage them on their level. Whether it is play therapy or art therapy, I always have some trick up my sleeve to foster a fun yet productive and safe environment that children can utilize to express themselves. Children have a lot on their plates, I address social, educational, familial, and self-esteem/confidence issues.

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.

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.

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.

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).

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.

As an experienced Educator I know the issues that teens face both in and out of school. I treat the whole child, which means if they have an anxiety issue for instance, I will include the physical, emotional and psychological aspects contributing to their issues. Teens today may act like adults, but they still need the strong person that can problem solve to listen to their issues.
