Often times children are struggling with issues in their own life and cannot communicate their need for help. It is a parent's job to recognize when something is not right. Helping children identify problems and work through them is a skill that lasts a lifetime. My work with children is based on trust. Only when they feel safe will they begin to reveal their inner thoughts and fears. This is achieved mainly through play therapy and parent child sessions.

Parents today often feel anxious and confused about how to strike the balance between their role as loving caregivers and disciplinarians. I work with parents and children to: 1. improve parents’ understanding of their child’s development 2. using play, picture books, and talk, create an atmosphere in which both parents and children feel respected and understood 3. develop a clear and effective approach to discipline 4. explore, when indicated, the impact of parents' childhood struggles as it affects their capacity to parent effectively 5. strengthen the marital relationship to model healthy communication

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.

In addition to my work with adolescents and adults, I also work with young children (ages 3 to 12) using play & art therapy plus. A large component of that work is with their parent(s). After spending more than 25 years with parents who have children who are emotionally unstable, oppositionally defiant, socially shy, bullied, or otherwise struggling, I have an edge on knowing how to teach optimal parenting. In addition to my licenses as an MFT & MHC, I am also a licensed Speech-Language Pathologist & Audiologist. Hence I also work with children who are ADD, ADHD, LD, speech and/or language Impaired, & hard of hearing or deaf. When I help a child, I help the family. A double whamee.

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).

I work with young children using neurofeedback, a type of biofeedback which helps regulate brainwave functioning. Neurofeedback was recently approved by the American Pediatric Association as an effective tool for addressing ADHD. The association determined that neurofeedback was just as effective as medication for ADHD. In addition, Neurofeedback is helpful for a range of conditions in both children and adults including: Autistic Spectrum Disorders, Depression, Anxiety, Migraines, Post Concussion Syndrome, and Traumatic Brain Injury. I also use Neurofeedback to help improve performance in high functioning individuals including students preparing for standardized tests.

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.
