Wouldn’t it be wonderful if kids came with owner’s manuals? Well, as parent’s know all too well, they don’t, which means that parenting oftentimes can feel like a series of trial-and-error experiences. These experiences, in turn, can sometimes leave us feeling frustrated, exhausted, exasperated and perhaps even afraid that we might be doing more harm than good. Because of this pressure and uncertainty (especially among first time parents), when I work with young children and their parents, our focus is to identify the strengths parents and children bring with them, and use this as a starting point towards addressing whatever concerns may be occurring. I utilize this approach because having worked....

Play Therapy is utilized with young children so that they are given the opportunity to express their feelings, practice constructive behaviors and work out solutions to problems. Unlike adults, children use play and toys as their language. Though children have often not yet developed the verbal capacity to express their feelings and experiences using words, they naturally express themselves though play. It is effective in addressing a variety of issues such as behavior problems, divorce, family conflict, school difficulties, attachment and peer issues. Ms. Stacy facilitates problem solving and acceptance of responsibility so that the child is empowered to make better choices.

Licensed Professional Counselor
Location: 5601 Democracy DR SUITE 185, Plano
The education, care and development of our children has advanced in many ways over the years. Yet there are still many children in society today who struggle with mental and emotional difficulties that keep them from feeling secure and happy. Through play therapy, your children can learn how to express negative thoughts and emotions in a positive and constructive manner.
Children age 2-10 years old often have a difficult time expressing their thoughts and feelings in words. This can resort to them becoming frustrated, angry and discontent. In play therapy, kids are encouraged to convey their feelings as they play with their toys. Because a major part of children’s lives revolve around playing,....

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 firstname.lastname@example.org or 877-606-6161.
Renee Fromm, MA, LPC
Licensed Professional Counselor
Location: 3550 Parkwood Blvd, Frisco
Working with children is a specialty and must be treated in this way. Children are most commonly brought to therapy, not on their own motivation. I am able to build a rapport with children and help them understand the benefits of therapy. I am able to engage them in healing their hurts, or lessening their anxieties, or even empowering them to control their own behavior. I have built my life around working with and relating to children, and nothing gives me more pleasure than to watch them succeed and gain all that life has to offer.

Children and Adolescents have obstacles today that were not present even 10 years ago. There is a huge generational gap that I can help connect. The expectations on young women and men are quite different and much more than they were before. I can help children and adolescents become connected to themselves and reconnected to their parents. This opens the path to mindful-freedom for the whole family.
Audrey Kteily, Ph.D, LPC-S
Location: 702 S. Denton Tap Rd, Suite 140, Coppell
Dr. Kteily takes a family systems approach when working with clients. She assesses not only the individual but the family as well as other environments the person is active in. This gives Dr. Kteily a complete picture of the person's life and where changes need to be made. Of course some topics require a sharper approach such as addiction, anxiety and panic, and depression. Dr. Kteily works closely with each individual's physicians to manage their symptoms while helping each person find the root cause and eradicate it.

Licensed Professional Counselor, Registered Play Therapist, Certified Positive Discipline Parent Educator
Location: 3067 Falcon Road, Suite 100 , Prosper
Children are special and they need a special kind of therapy to allow them to share in developmentally appropriate ways. I am a Registered Play Therapist with specialized training and credentials to work with children. Many therapists will work with children, but I encourage you to ask about their training and credentials. Play therapy is a structured, theoretically based approach that builds on children's normal communicative and learning process. Play therapy helps children express what is troubling them, using toys as words, and play as their language.

Children speak to us via their play, while we, as adults, attempt to use thinking and logic to communicate and understand them. Even older children often do not have the ability, to express themselves in a way that makes sense to adults. Our qualified counselors use activities that are adapted to meet the developmental stages of children to adolescence. Our therapists are trained Registered Play Therapist, a specific, world renowned, empirically studied approach to connecting with children via their natural language of play. In addition, we often teach these skills to parents as to help build and foster the child-parent relationship. We see very young children to adulthood.
