Child Psychologist

Piper Walsh, Ph.D

Clinical Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of Lake Elsinore, CA

Raising your children can be a rewarding and joyous experience. Still, parenting comes with unique challenges and often frustrations, at every stage of development. I help parents learn not only what works, but also how to consistently implement change. Together we work on appropriate expectations, setting limits, and developing strategies to solve problems as they happen. I also concentrate on discipline, approaching it from a natural consequence viewpoint, rather than as a punitive measure. After all, the goal of any external discipline should be that the child eventually internalize it and discipline themselves. I look forward to assisting you: 949.370.4726 or info@southoccounseling.com.

Child Counselor

Kimi Schumacher, M.S., LMFT, LPCC, RPT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor

Within Driving Distance of Lake Elsinore, CA

I am a Registered Play Therapist. Counseling children is different than working with adults. Children have not yet developed the areas of their brain associated with language and communication that adults use in typical "talk therapy" counseling. Play is the language of children, and through their play they are able to process their problems, such as divorce, loss of a loved one, behavior problems, trauma, anxiety, depression, or other difficult situations. Because play therapy is at a child's level, it is less invasive and less threatening. Children might not even have the words, thoughts or feelings to verbalize their experiences.

Child Counselor

OC Anxiety Center, Ph.D.

Licensed Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Lake Elsinore, CA

School refusal? Early indications of OCD? Don't feel helpless as a parent. We have helped hundreds of kids and teens through anxiety and fears they and their parents often could not understand. OCAC conducts an age appropriate assessment in office or at home. The goal is to help a child feel comfortable answering questions about a feared situation. Coming to understand a child's world is essential to relating and communicating. After underlying contributors have been established, a treatment plan is recommended, which often includes participation of parents or caretakers. OCAC provides clear direction and explanation and is always available by phone. Our care is highly personalized.

Child Counselor

Cristy Pareti, PsyD, MFT

Marriage & Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Lake Elsinore, CA

Too often therapies are not targeted at children's age levels. I specialize in play therapy with young children. Play therapy is an opportunity for children to express feelings, emotions or trauma in a safe environment. Developmentally, children are not able to adequately express their feelings or experiences in words. Through play therapy, the therapist can interact and help the child to express and heal important feelings related to their experiences. I have specialized doctoral clinical training in play therapy and child therapy. I have found play therapy, combined with family therapy, to be an effective technique to help children with anxiety, trauma, depression, and behavioral problems.
