Children can experience a wide variety of issues and symptoms. Treatment with children involves some aspect of play therapy. Working with children also usually involves, to some degree, working with the parents/guardians and family therapy. Education for parents/guardians includes healthy family dynamics and boundaries, limit setting and more effective communication.
Katey Moody, BSc., MBACP(Accred)
Location: 237 Lancaster Avenue, Suite 231, Devon
I specialise in working woth older adolescents. High school teens feel such pressure on them and find the choices they need to make, leave them feeling very overwhelmed and sometimes depressed. I help them find ways of coping that are appropriate for their world. I work with them on developing life skills that will enable them to feel more in control in their world. A relationship with an adult that is not their parent is so beneficial for them. They feel very heard by me and are able to explore any number of issues that they feel unable to with their parents.
Barbara Flor, Ed.S., LPC
Licensed Professional Counselor
Location: 6136 Mechanicsville Rd., Mechanicsville
My years of experience as a school counselor has given me unique insight into the needs of children. I work with young children and adolescents on issues that are affecting their home, school, and social life. Some of the services I provide for children include: social skills training; techniques for dealing with ADHD, ODD, and various learning disorders; strategies to combat anxiety, depression, and to assist with emotion regulation; counseling for bullying; and research-proven strategies for developing resiliency to life's ups and downs. Parents play an integral part of therapy with children, and often parent training is included in any successful plan to help children.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker & Marriage &Family Therapist
Location: Grant Ave & Krewstown Road, Philadelphia
Children are exhilarating and exhausting and we each write our own parenting manual following our trials and errors. Whatever the problem with your child- medical, developmental, learning, or behavioral - it shapes and affects your entire family. I work with families to help each member increase their mindfulness of how their actions influence the behaviors of their child. I also help parents/guardians create new ways of supporting and insuring that the needs of all family members are satisfied. I invite you to visit me at www.PhillyFamilyLifeCounseling.com and to allow me to join you as you write your parenting manual.

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.
Dawn Connors, MSW, LCSW
Licensed Clinical Social Worker
Location: 183 W. Lancaster Ave, First Floor, Paoli
Dawn works with children as young as three and requires parents to be present with all children under 12. Dawn's role with young children is to help parents become the experts in helping his/her child heal and grow. Dawn provides a safe, nurturing environment for children to express themselves through drama, art, games, manipulatives, and sand. She offers parents the tools and resources to build confidence in responding to his/her child's fears and sadness rather than reacting to the behavior. Parents often report progress at home after the first session. Dawn is committed to child welfare issues and is a member of the Delaware County Children's Cabinet.

In our current over-scheduled, over-pressured world, families are confronting problems they have little capacity to do anything about. We can tend to cope by getting stuck in a narrow range of behaviors and responses even if they are not helpful. A child who has learned to have temper tantrums when she is angry, and her parents who have learned to punish or pamper her, are stuck in maladaptive, non-growthful environments—‘a bad play’. It’s like playing the same part in the same play on the same stage day after day.
A key component in this play is often our children’s behavioral, emotional and leaning difficulties that are so disruptive or dysfunctional - all we want to do is stop it. As pare....

Marriage and Family Therapist
Location: 1500 Walnut Street Suite 700, Philadelphia
Unlike adults, young children have not fully developed their ability to communicate uncomfortable feelings. Often children will act out when they feel angry, worried, or sad. I specialize in helping children with grief and trauma in a safe and understanding environment. Children express their difficult feelings through story telling, playing, and drawing. I work with the parent and the child to develop coping skills that help the child to feel happier and express their emotions in a healthier manner. I was trained to address grief and trauma after Hurricane Katrina with children in New Orleans.
Shelby Riley, LMFT & Associates (SR&A), LMFT
Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Location: 223 Byers Road, Chester Springs
Several therapists at SR&A work with young children. Our therapy offices are equipped with play therapy supplies as well as sand tray therapy. We are committed to creating a safe, friendly environment where children and parents feel respected and encouraged. We recognize that all families function differently, and there is no one "right" way for children to behave or adults to parent. We enjoy working with kids in both an individual and family context and find the best change happens when many family members are committed to the therapy process.
