Decades of research has taught us that the world of the child is one of exploration and play. A child lacks the ability to verbalize their feelings, but, if given the opportunity, can “play out” those feelings in a safe environment. Therefore, we believe that a child’s primary language for expressing their feelings is through their play. In our therapy sessions we strive to meet the child at his/her level and invite them to play freely in our playroom under the watchful eye of our trained play therapist. Through the vehicle of play we help the child to express their confusing and often overwhelming feelings, help them to change negative behavior, and learn more adaptive behaviors.

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)

I have worked with children as young as 7 years old, but one of my areas of interest is working with teenagers. In my experience, in contrast to adults and young children, when teenagers experience hardships and difficulty in life, they act inward, turning away from people, as opposed to acting outwards and looking for help and support. When working with teens it is my job to show them that I am a trustworthy, "chill"/"cool"/casual guy who they can talk to about anything they want to. After kids warm up in therapy and start talking, they typically magically get better simply through having a designated person they can open up and talk to.

Child Counselor

Joan Fellows, M.A. MFC

Licensed Marriage, Family, Individual Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Rancho Cordova, CA

Often times young children do not have the words to express what is going on inside of them. I help young children by providing them with different ways to express their thoughts, feelings, worries and stresses. To help young children I often use play therapy techniques, art therapy, sand tray therapy and many more experiential modalities. In therapy I provide a safe, nurturting and therapuetic environment.

Child Counselor

Ivy Griffin, MA, MFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Rancho Cordova, CA

I specialize in counseling young children through play therapy, art therapy and sand tray therapy. Often, we think of "talk therapy" in which adults sit down and discuss their problems with a therapist. For children, their primary language is play--it's how they express themselves and how they experience the world, so that's the tool we use in therapy. I focus on a variety of techniques that assist children in expressing, processing and healing from difficult feelings and experiences through their language of play.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Parenting is rarely without stress, conflict and feelings of failure. Two children do not respond the same to techniques of parental guidance and training. What works for one child seldom works for the other children in the family. I can provide the parental instruction and guidance to assist you in solving the issues which contribute to the conflict.

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. In some cases, it's not as clear what's caused a child to suddenly seem withdrawn, worried, stressed, sulky, or tearful. But if you feel your child might have an emotional or behavioral problem or needs help coping with a difficult life event, trust your instincts.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Children often need guidance to deal with things in life that are out of their control. A parent can often have a hard time understanding and reaching the child with problems mainly because the child does not want to share or doesn't know how to. Art therapy and play therapy can tell us so much about how a child views their world. Early interventios can make all the difference in a child's life.

If you feel like you are at a loss for how to parent your child, you are not alone. Your child didn't come with instructions, so oftentimes parents find themselves frustrated and overwhelmed with trying to figure out what is the "right" way to do things. Come in for individual, family, or parent coaching sessions to learn how to be the parent your child needs and deserves.

Child Counselor

Retha Millikan, LMFT

Licensed Marriage Family Counselor

Within Driving Distance of Rancho Cordova, CA

Counseling children is very different from working with adults. Children process their inner world through play. They rarely sit and talk in session, although it is something that happens as children form a unique alliance with me as their trusted counselor. Some techniques I use include art therapy, sand tray, puppet play, and therapeutic games. Whether working on anxiety issues, divorce losses, bullying, or OCD, children learn coping mechanisms that empower and encourage them. I try to keep parents apprised of their child's progress while maintaining confidentiality.

Children are wonderful. It is through understanding, respect and commitment we can effectively work with a child. A parent successfully can connect with that child by engaging in their feelings and emotions. We can work together and engage the child in a way that will count and you will learn to really be there. When your child is acting out and they are sad, frightened or angry you will be there with them and coach them through these emotional times. This is not about a particular theory or a set of rules It is based from feeling of love and respect for the child even if there feelings are running high. We can work together engage the child and create a positive change.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, #86507

Within Driving Distance of Rancho Cordova, CA

I enjoy working with young children who have anxiety and/or Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. It's so hard for parents to watch their child's world shrink due to incapacitating anxiety. Together we'll uncover unhelpful thinking patterns and develop a more balanced perspective that is more accurate. I'm trained in Pediatric OCD and employ gradual and compassionate Exposure Therapy and Exposure and Response Prevention when dealing with fears, OCD, and other anxiety disorders.
