Young children need a safe place to express their needs and frustrations as well as guidance in managing their frustration in acceptable ways. Often working with children leads to assisting parents in ways to connect more closely with their children while acquiring some tools to set and enforce reasonable boundaries. Whether helping a child process through trauma or learn self control my goal is to not only provide guidance for your child but also for you in working with them at home.

Ronald Reichard, MA, MFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of National City, CA

When working with young children I make use of play exercises, as playing is one of the primary ways in which children express what is going on in their "world" both mentally and emotionally. I also place significant emphasis on their family life, as a child's behavior is strongly impacted by their home life. I also provide parent coaching in order to equip the parents with effective skills to manage the child's behavioral difficulties. I believe that effectively helping a child often requires both individual therpay with the child and family therapy.

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 Psychologist

Aleksandra Drecun, Psy.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of National City, CA

Working with young children requires that the professional possesses specialized knowledge and skills that enable them to identify problem behaviors and formulate appropriate interventions that are developmentally appropriate for the child. As a psychologist trained to work with children and families, I develop individualized treatment plans appropriate to each child's and family's specific needs. Working with children, I use an playful approach which will engage the child in addressing any psychic conflicts they may be experiencing and find healthy ways to address those conflicts so that children can function at their most optimal level in all facets of life.

Child Counselor

Andrew Last, L.M.F.T., C.S.A.T

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of National City, CA

Struggling with your child's behaviors? Is your child angry, depressed, or suffering from family issues? I work very well with children helping them to process their emotions and develop healthy ways of coping. I also spend a lot of time working with parents to equip them with the skills to connect with and better help their child navigate and overcome their current struggle. Every child's personality and situation is unique. This requires a therapist who can help problem solve with parents to find the best solution for their particular child. Rather than following a particuar formula I will work with you to give your child the help they need. Call today for a consultation.

No man is an island and this couldn't be more true for a child in distress.When a child is having behavior disorders such as ADHD, ODD or emotional disorders of depression and anxiety, there is a great impact on the child's family as well. Dr. Wendt has successfully treated children with these disorders using a combination of individual and family therapy interventions to help manage and alleviate the symptoms that are preventng the child and his/her family from enjoying all what life has to offer. Educating and helping the child's family understand the dynamics of the disorder and how they can actively be part of the solution goes a long way in improving the emotional health of all members.
