Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Children have not yet learned how to shield themselves from conflict, negativity, etc. Therefore, they are akin to "sponges," soaking up whatever they are exposed to. I provide children with a healthy, authentic space in which they can connect with their feelings through play and discussion. I also work with parents on styles of communication (those they might use with their children as well as their spouse/coparent) that may be inadvertently affecting children.

Therapy with children must include verbal and nonverbal modes of therapy. We include modeling and teaching positive behaviors and self-talk, identifying core beliefs, play therapy, and sandplay. Sandtray therapy, more commonly called Sandplay therapy, is a form of therapy that provides a way to help children express the "inexpressible" Other ways for children to express include drawing a picture, using a crafts technique, or doing a collage. Art and play therapy techniques are used to supplement the therapy as talk therapy can be limiting for many children. We may also employ Somatic Experiencing methods to resolve trauma. Also, we often include the parents or caretakers in the therapy.

I love working with children. In my practice I see pre-school, elementary, middle, and high-school age students with issues ranging from difficulties with peers, anxiety, trauma-related disturbances, ADHD, divorce related difficulties and many other concerns. In my work with children, I use techniques including play therapy, family systems and cognitive behavioral. In addition, I have extensive experience in art, dance, and drama therapy and individualize treatment so each child has fun while working through issues. In addition to my deep experience counseling children I am a former school teacher and a wife and mother.

Children can benefit from therapy, but often aren't mature enough to express their worries, concern, anger or grief through speech. What children can do participate in Play Therapy - the medium using creating, pretending, painting and building. Children's symptoms such as anxiety, depression, loss, anger and fear can be worked through in the presence of a trained therapist. Play therapy allows a child to deal with difficult emotions, find alternate solutions and change the way they think and feel about their concerns. Whether a child is struggling with divorce, bullying, loss or lots of change, therapy designed to meet the child where they are can be incredibly beneficial.

Working with children is both a challenge and an honor. When children require therapy, it can be a very stressful time for the family so it is important that the care provider also seek help. The collaborative, personalized treatment plan has the potential to provide life changing support and can minimize the effects of trauma. Together, through play therapy, art, and some talking, the events unfold and the child receives clinically sound, nurturing care to provide emotional safety and learn healthy coping skills.

I work with children (as young as four-years-old) through a variety of methods including talk therapy, play therapy, and sandtray therapy. In addition, I provide parenting skills coaching to parents and help children and their parents find ways to relate better and have greater peace at home. Children appear to be very comfortable working with me and after a few sessions with a child, I am often told by the child that he or she has been looking forward to coming in.

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.

Anna Dasbach, M.A., LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Young children don't necessary have the skill or developmental capability to share their feelings verbally, instead they might act out more or show difficulties sleeping or engaging with other children. Since at a young age the child is not able to articulate and understand their feelings and experiences cognitively, I utilize play therapy and EMDR to provide a safe way for children to overcome painful experiences and to find better ways of dealing with difficult situations in their lives.

Children can benefit from therapy if they are currently facing stressors. It helps children develop problem-solving skills and also the value of seeking assistance before things get hard. I help the children and their families cope with stressors, that results in emotional and behavioral issues. I am able to assist children who are currently dealing with school stressors, such as homework, test anxiety, peer pressure or a significant life event such as the death of a family member, friend,pet and from a divorce. I help children and family members with tools and skills to cope with changes in the behavior, appetite, social functioning, sleep, which affects all other family members.

There is nothing more important than we do in life than parent children. Raising healthy children is an important part of your legacy. Watching your children struggle with sadness, fear, or anger can feel very upsetting. Children can benefit greatly from play therapy, because children naturally work though their psychological issues with play. I started working with children from 3 to 12 in 1996 at Almaden Valley Youth Counseling Services. Success with children involves parents and teachers. If a child's parent are willing to participate in the counseling process, then much can be accomplished. A secure bond between the child and parents is critical.

Child and adolescent counseling can play a very important role in the life of a child who is dealing with one or more of the wide area of childhood challenges and traumas. Children can become the unintended victims of parents who had little training to become parents, had little time to be parents or experienced separation, abandonment, divorce , a change in parenting, step-parenting, foster parenting as well were challenged by dysfunctional homes with addictions, emotional disturbances and instabilities, extreme fighting, arguing, violence and abuse, frequent moving, and being passed from one divorced parent to another or from family member to family memeber. All these and many additional growing up challenges and traumas can be potent and disturbing...(view profile to read more)

Marriage & Family Therapist, Registered Art Therapist

In my practice I work with young children with a variety of difficulties from controlling their anxiety, anger and tantrums, to getting along better with friends and siblings and parents. I also help them with school difficulties that include failing grades, and behavior issues. I work with the child, parent and often the teacher to remember what Erikkson taught that "behind each behavior is a feeling". My goal is to help the child access their feelings, and in a safe place, explore their feelings and behavior while learning tools to help contol them so they can live happy and fulfilled lives.
