Child Counselor

Michael Barmak, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

347 Lincoln Avenue East, Cranford, NJ

I help with children as young as nine years old learn how to feel their feelings and take personal responsibility for them rather than make others responsible for how they feel. And then how to manage, communicate and release their feelings appropriately. I also help children build higher self worth, be more compassionate with themselves and learn how to make better choices.

Child Counselor

Suzi Sena, EdS, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

365 Park Avenue, Scotch Plains, NJ

“The days are long but the years are short” is my favorite quote when describing the life of a parent. Being a parent can be rewarding, but usually comes with it challenges. As a mental health counselor in a school environment for 6 years, I helped pre-teens and young adults navigate bullying, anxiety, depression, academic techniques, career development and college preparation, and relationship issues (family and peers). I work with individuals 11 and older using talk therapy while integrating structured activities. As you spend much more time with your child then the 60 minutes I do in session, a primary focus is strengthening the child and parent relationship and involving parents in the counseling process.

Child Counselor

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

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 kevin@kevinflemingphd.com or 877-606-6161.

Child Counselor

Garrett Coan, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

291 River Road, Clifton, NJ

Oftentimes the reaction of parents to their difficult children is to either retreat and become overly permissive or, alternatively, to become controlling and dictatorial. Neither approach is helpful, but rather exacerbate the situation. I help families of young children with emotional and behavioral problems learn the needed parenting skills that create the needed structure and flexibility which troubled children need to feel a sense of stability and security. I specialize in family systems therapy which involves understanding and modifying the family's inner dynamics and communication.

Child Counselor

Joanna Buset, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor, Specializing in Children & Adolescents

777 Passaic Avenue, Clifton, NJ

I love working with young children because I truly believe in the importance of early intervention. The earlier we address concerns, the more fully our children can blossom. I integrate a wide variety of techniques so that I can help children on numerous different levels. I believe in a comprehensive approach, and will teach you- the parent- how to better interact with your child as well. As a mother myself, I know how much each of us wants to "get it right"... but sometimes it can be hard to know what "right" is. I can help you match your parenting technique to your child's style, so that you can reduce household conflict and encourage positive coping skills and healthy self-confidence.

Child Counselor

Gerald Schoenewolf, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychoanalyst

207 East 15th Street, New York, NJ

When children have problems, those problems are directly related to their relationship with their parents. Hence, my approach to working with children is to work with the whole family. If a child is acting up at school, he generally has parents who are, often unintentionally, not giving him what he needs at home. All parents want to believe that they are good parents, and it is hard for them to accept that they may be doing things that are causing their children to have problems. My job is to gently and patiently create a constructive atmosphere and honest communication between parents and children, which help the children resolve their problems and learn to thrive.

Child Counselor

Marion Rollings, PhD

Licensed Psychologist

236 West High Street, Bound Brook, NJ

Children, particularly young children, often do not have the ability to express how they feel in words and as a result, express their feelings through behavior-often inappropriate or undesirable behavior such as hitting, defiance, school refusal, and more. Power struggles over homework, getting up on time for school, complying with parental requests are also common problems of children today. Anxious children frequently complain of stomach aches, dizzy spells, and headaches. Working closely with the child and the child's parents, I implement child behavioral techniques and provide the parents' with tools to successfully manage their child's behavior as well as resolve any emotional distress

Child Counselor

Judith MacDowell, MSW, MPH, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker/Therapist

Children and families are the focus of my work in ADHD, behavioral issues (at home and school), anxiety, depression and the toll these issues take on family relationships and a child's sense of self and future. I also work with children in pre and post adoption issues, adjustment and development in a family. My experience spans 15 years of these challenges and I welcome the chance to support your future.

Child Counselor

Carolyn AlRoy, Psy.D.

Licensed Psychologist

19 West 34th St., Penthouse, New York, NJ

I am knowledgeable about young children, as I have a doctorate in child psychology. I am happy to advise or help parents with young children, who are taking a little longer to potty train, having a lot of tantrums, bedwetting, falling behind in school, may have a learning disability. I work closely with the parents, and in many cases would not treat the child directly. I usually focus on and get to know the parent, how I can best support them as a parent, as a spouse, and as a person in the world.

Child Counselor

Annie Block Pearl, M.S.

Psychotherapist

185 Madison Avenue, 15th Floor Office #1, New York, NJ

My approach to working with young children is unique, because I believe that the child's dysfunction is reflection of an imbalance in the family system. Therefore, my work is with the parent(s) of the child in order to restore harmony in the family and peace for the child. Please feel free to call for my information!
