I have worked with young children for 27 years as a special education teacher. I learned ways of helping them be successful. My internship was counseling young children at a private school that was created to help children with learning problems. Many children I counseled had more than one disability. I realize that it is not easy to raise a child who has the extra burden of coping with a disability or an emotional disorder, but there are many things a parent can do to help their child. I can teach you these ways. I take children from 12-17 years of age.

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 email@example.com or 877-606-6161.

Is your child struggling with nightmares, tantrums, fear, bed wetting, incontinence, or trauma? We strongly feel that early intervention is the best method. Rather than allowing patterns and behaviors to become ingrained, we help children through expressive play therapy to process emotions, confront fears, and develop new skills/behaviors. We often find that parents are too close to their children to see when there are significant problems developing and it is the voice of teachers, friends, or other parents that make subtle suggestions about getting your child some additional resources. Pay attention to those suggestions they might see something you do not see. We are here to help!

Sometimes kids, like adults, can benefit from therapy. Therapy can help kids develop problem-solving skills and also teach them the value of seeking help. Therapists can help kids and families cope with stress and a variety of emotional and behavioral issues. Many kids need help dealing with school stress, such as homework, test anxiety, bullying, or peer pressure. Others need help to discuss their feelings about family issues, particularly if there's a major transition, such as a divorce, move, or serious illness. At Thrive Counseling- we utilize play therapy as a research supported modality in working with young children. Play Therapy with children is very different from that with adults as c....

Families play an important role in children's healing processes. The interaction between children's problems and their families is always complex. Sometimes children develop problems as a way of signaling that there is something wrong in the family. Other times the entire family becomes distressed because the child's problems are so disruptive. In all cases, children and families heal faster when they work together. I assist parents with parenting skills through psychoeducation and coaching. We work together to develop age appropriate discipline and parenting. Involved in this process are family sessions with parents and children together so that family issues can be resolved.

Clinical Pastoral Counselor, Certified Chaplain
Location of Therapist: Suwanee, GA
In Christian Counseling, I believe that at least one of the parents should be actively involved with the child during each session. This helps to keep lines of communication open between the parent, child, and Christian Counselor. Also, in the Bible, there is a recurrent theme of training the children through teaching and example. As the issues of the child are addressed, the parents are encouraged to provide the kind of home that is conducive to solid spiritual and mental development. The child will be asked to draw pictures which will be analyzed and inerpreted to the parent. If necessary, teachers and pediatric physician will be consulted. Parenting strategies will be taught.

Counseling children effectively requires specific training and experience. As a part of my training, I took courses specific to learning methods that are proven in treating children. I worked as an elementary guidance counselor for ten years and have served as a youth leader for over seventeen years. One of my strengths is in connecting with children quickly. I also greatly value including their parents (and sometimes even siblings) in the work that we do!

Beautiful babies, tantrumming toddlers, angry adolescents - not a single one of them came with an owner's manual. Raising children to adulthood can be the most challenging, frustrating, and confusing unguided journey ever undertaken. When the parenting books don't hold the answers you need, professional support from someone who really understands developmental stages and the culture in which today's children operate, you and your kids/teens can learn to handle the emotions of growing up and relate better as a family. My relaxed office is a safe place of comfortable furniture, games, and art supplies for children to explore their feelings and for parents to enhance their parenting skills.
