Children many times do not even know how they feel about their circumstances and often have difficulty communicating it. Even if they did know many times they won't share it with a parent out of fear. Therapy helps a child overcome difficult emotions, learn how to regulate them in a healthy way, and provides valuable feedback for the parents. There are specific tools used that provide a child the ability to express their feeling accurately.

Children express their worries and concerns differently than adults do. It takes a specialized approach and skill-set to communicate and work effectively with them. I am a Registered Play Therapist with more than 25 years of experience working with children and parents. Through play therapy I help children learn to express themselves and develop the skills they need to overcome a variety of challenges. I work closely with parents to give them the tools they need to support and guide their child in a positive direction.

Finding a therapist who can work with young children is a challenge. Our therapist, Fred Theobald, has experience helping children who are dealing with issues of depression, adjustment to changes, coping with divorce, behavior problems at home, and social skills. By providing a warm, gentle approach, children are more likely to open up about what their experience is. He integrates parents into the therapy, so that they know how to work with their children, rather than against them. Contact us today to set up an appointment with Fred.

Young children can be the most challenging of all persons to get to open up and show you the truth of their world. It takes a truly well trained and dedicated person to work honestly and authentically for the child's benefit; not reading too much into and not missing details. I can utilize non-directive play therapy. I believe that small children communicate through play. I have experienced the healing that can felt by a child by showing a trusted adult via play, what is bothering them. Being part of the healing of Jesus' little lambs is my biggest privilege.

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.

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 may need help dealing with school stress, test anxiety, bullying, peer pressure, major life transitions or significant life events such as divorce, illness, abuse, abandonment, emotional or behavioral trauma. With a keen understanding of physical, and emotional development, and experience in school counseling, I can use a variety of techniques from play therapy to activity and art therapy to maximize the potential of children.
Audrey Kteily, Ph.D, LPC-S

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.
