Blending a family should be a happy event. A new marriage should be all about partnership and building life together. But all too often blended families are filled with conflict rather than harmony. Instead of compromise, it’s often about who’s right and who’s wrong. And the relationship with the step-children is always going to be strained. It’s no wonder that second marriages with blended families have a higher likelihood of divorce. But if you and your spouse are unified and take everyone’s needs into account, your family could function more smoothly. Many stepparents are defensive about “their” children. Each has a different upbringing and different parenting experiences and styles. What m....

Harris Marriage & Family Therapy, Inc.

Within Driving Distance of Rowland Heights, CA

We enjoy working with children as young as 4 years of age. We begin with a psychological assessment, history and obtain any relevant medical information. Then we meet with the primary care givers, usually both parents, or grandparents who provide us with their concerns and observations. We recommend the child be assessed by a medical doctor to rule out any medical cause for the problem behavior.Then we educate the adults with parenting skills. If the parenting tools are not enough to correct the problem behaviors then we will do play therapy with the child to better assess the child's problem.

Child Counselor

Terry Anderson, M.S., Psy.D, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Rowland Heights, CA

One of my specialties is working with elementary age (and adolescents). A child or young person's struggles with difficult feelings and unhelpful behaviors can impact the rest of his or her life. Addressing these challenges during the child's critical developmental years can rebalance and set the stage for a happier and healthier future. I have a special feeling for young people in distress, and feel my professional and life experience has enabled me to be especially attuned to their feelings, needs, and pain. I have over 13 years experience working with children facing emotional and behavioral challenges. Please feel free to call.

Child Counselor

Ilissa Banhazl, MFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Rowland Heights, CA

I work with children who are 9 years of age and older depending on their verbal ability. Young children who are verbal can benefit from "talk therapy". I also use play therapy techniques when applicable. This includes art, games, books and more based on your child's individual needs. Areas I work with children on vary; divorce, grief, school, blended families, bullies, self-esteem, eating disorders, anxiety, depression and more. Family therapy is always useful when working with children. The support of a parent is extremely helpful when a child is in counseling. I offer parenting techniques for moms and dads. Inquire, depending on your needs. Siblings are welcome to join meetings when needed

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)

Child Counselor

Stuart Kaplowitz, MFT

Marriage & Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Rowland Heights, CA

Everyone experiences pain / sadness at some point. Even we as adults though sometimes cannot explain what we are experiencing and exactly why. For our children, they will be less likely to verbalize what is happening for them and more likely to act it out. Our children need to be given the tools to best express their wants and needs, as well as whatever emotions and thoughts they are experiencing. Let's give them a voice and teach them the healthy ways.

Child Counselor

Tara Hernandez, MA., LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Rowland Heights, CA

Children grow and change on a daily basis, which can be a difficult process not only for the child but for the parents as well. I assist children in learning how to express themselves through fun, creative outlets that are both age appropriate and applicable across multiple settings. Such settings may include home, school and multiple social avenues.

Child Counselor

Verdant Oak Behavioral Health, Psy.D. and Ph.D.

Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of Rowland Heights, CA

Stress for young children can often be challenging to discern. Parents may notice that their child begins to experience a greater incidence of tantrums and/or angry outbursts, but often attribute such changes to growing up. Children may also demonstrate strict rules for their play and become upset when their schedule is changed without warning. Sometimes parents may not be able to identify obvious signs of stress in their children, but recognize that their child has encountered a number of stressors. In any of these cases, children can benefit from therapy wherein they can explore how to express their feelings and learn to process their emotions in a safe non-judgmental environment.

Child Counselor

Heather Browne, PsyD, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Rowland Heights, CA

I work with 12 year olds and up. For young teens we use games, pillow fights, exercise, drawing, any medium that would make it more comfortable for the teen to open and share. When beneficial, I bring the parents into the end of the session so that they know what the teen is needing in their assistancxe with that next week. Art and journaling are a significant part of homework to allow the youth to express and reduce their emotional overload.

Child Counselor

Through the therapy process, I seek to provide a safe environment for children and adolescents who may be experiencing depression, anxiety, or struggles with peers or family relationships.

Child Counselor

Deborah Vinall, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Rowland Heights, CA

In working with young children, I seek to establish a relationship of trust while supporting the child's relationship with his or her parent(s) or caregiver(s). Because the end goal is for the child to no longer need my services, it is very important that I work collaboratively with the parents and transfer any new skills and trust to the primary relationship. Techniques that I use include structured and unstructured play therapy, sand tray, bibliotherapy (which incorporates the use of topical picture books with play and discussion), and art therapy, as well as behavioral therapy assignments to assist parents in shaping problem behaviors. Your precious children are treated as such!

Child Psychologist

Jeanne Clevenger, PsyD

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of Rowland Heights, CA

The inner world of a child is rich with emotion and depth. It can be difficult to watch your child struggle, whether it is socially, academically, or in the home. Child therapy can be beneficial in not only providing current support and problem-solving, but can also serve to be preventative for potential longer-term issues. Young children in particular have a language of their own -- play! I will work with your child using play and art therapy techniques to communicate and develop more effective coping tools to thrive in his or her environment and family.

Child Counselor

Prepare To Change, Psy.D., HSPP

Individual and Family Therapists

Within Driving Distance of Rowland Heights, CA

Prepare to Change counselors have been serving children and adolescents in many south Orange County communities for many years. Counseling for children can be effective and helpful, but sometimes a child’s needs are so huge that therapy isn’t enough. They may need structure and more of a foundation at home. To improve family life, our experts also believe in empowering parents so they can become the agents of change in their families.

Child Counselor

Priscilla Traub, MS., MFTI

Registerned MFT Intern

Within Driving Distance of Rowland Heights, CA

Children experience life just as we adults to. Taking time to discuss emotions and feelings, the child will be able to gain tools to access feeling words and express themselves appropriately. Sometimes life becomes chaotic for children (new baby, school transitions, etc.), having a safe place to talk where someone listens will create a positive outcome on their outlook.

Child Psychologist

Charles R Barr, Ph.D.

Clinical Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of Rowland Heights, CA

Young children get scared and anxious, too. They express it differently from the adults. So you may see stomach aches, headaches, crying, worry, shying away from interactions, being afraid to go to school, or even school refusal. With the help of child friendly language, I use a program to help children 6-12 overcome their fear and anxiety. Excessive fear and anxiety is not just a childhood thing that they will outgrow. If their fear seems more than normal, please take action on their behalf. You may save them years of suffering.

Child Counselor

Rebecca Bokoch, MA

Marriage and Family Therapist Registered Intern

Within Driving Distance of Rowland Heights, CA

From 0 to 5 years, children are at a pivotal age for therapeutic intervention. Children are growing in many important areas, especially in their social and emotional development. Family therapy can help to enhance child development and parent-child relationships. Through guided therapeutic interactions, such as art and play therapy activities, parents can enrich their bond with their child.

Child Counselor

Betsy Walli, MS, PhD

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist 85860

Within Driving Distance of Rowland Heights, CA

When children feel accepted the way they are, they are free to change. I create a safe place in which a child can express his or her emotions and feel understood and valued. Opportunities within the session for responsibility, decision-making, and control help children trust and accept themselves. In therapy, play is for children what words are for adults. Children work through and reveal their thoughts and feelings through their play. Lacking the extensive vocabularies and associations of meanings that adults have, children often are more comfortable exploring and expressing themselves through play, games, and art.

Child Counselor

Morella Hammer, M.A.

Child Psychologist

John Quinlan, Psy.D.

Psychologist (License # PSY23794)

Within Driving Distance of Rowland Heights, CA

Children often have trouble expressing themselves to strangers or to a Doctor. As a result, counseling can involve hours of building trust with a child and allowing the child to express themselves freely through play and imagination. Counseling a child can not be engaged in effectively when the parents are not involved in the process. Counseling the parents in communication skills that enhance bonding, boundary implementation, and behavior modification are essential if a child is to grow in healthy ways.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

Many times, child therapists overdo the family system in their quest to seek effective solutions for emotional, learning or behavioral concerns with young children.

Burdetta Honescko, Psy. D.

Burdetta Honescko MFT Psy D.

Within Driving Distance of Rowland Heights, CA

When families are having problems with small children I work with the parent and the child. As the parent grows and learns better parenting skills the children respond. Always remember "behavior is language". The behavior of the child is telling you something, learn to listen and try to see through the eyes of the child. We learn developmental stages of their child and what reasonable expectations should be.

Child Counselor

Michelle Harwell, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Rowland Heights, CA

In my work with children, I utilize play therapy, which creates a secure environment where children can express themselves, try new things, learn more about how the world works, learn about social rules and boundaries, and work through their problems. The process of spontaneous play allows children to resolve the psychological tensions created by stressful events in a child’s life. Children are able to face difficult events because they are using familiar language and reactions where they have control of the play. The new scripts and schema that children create in the Play Therapy room are then generalized to their external environments.

Child Counselor

Laura MacRae-Serpa, M.A., CCLS

Marriage and Family Therapist Registered Intern

Within Driving Distance of Rowland Heights, CA

I utilize developmentally appropriate, play therapy to gain knowledge and understanding of how young children perceive themselves and their world. Older children, tweens and adolescents benefit from therapeutic activities and talk therapy, as vehicles for gaining insight and self-understanding. I have provided therapy, on campus at a K-8th grade school and previously worked as a Certified Child Life (Development) Specialist at Children's Hospital Los Angeles. As a mother, I deeply empathize with parents whose children are experiencing difficulties and welcome your questions and concerns regarding the therapeutic process for your child.

Child Counselor

Olga Aguilar, M.A. LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Rowland Heights, CA

Most of my work has been done with high schoolers and adolecents; however, I do have experience using play therapy and small groups with K-8th graders. As a mother of a child on the spectrum, I was trained in Greenspan's Floortime Approach. This later helped me with working with children of all ages. Play therapy helps children recreate the worlds they live in and helps me, the therapist, understand where they're coming from.

Understanding what a child is trying to communicate is crucial. Often as a parent, it is difficult when frustration gets in the way, to hear what a child is trying to say. Years of experience helps me decode the message and help intervene in a way that can help the whole family function in a more positive manner.

Child Counselor

Amie Lowery-Luyties, MFT, PPS, MS

Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Rowland Heights, CA

For about 7 years I only worked with children in my practice. The rest of my practice has been split working with adults and with kids. With kids, its all about their instinct and comfort. If they sense that the therapist isn't comfortable or experienced with kids, they won't engage in the therapy process. I use a variety of techniques working with children, depending on their age. For smaller children, art therapy and play therapy can be very successful for a variety of reasons. The main reason is that it takes the focus off of them and they feel more at ease to talk and be open. For older children who can handle "talk therapy", using simpler language can be effective.

Child Counselor

Naphtali Roberts, MA, LMFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

Young children respond well to play, art and music, and these activities can help them in expressing their strong feelings, while also developing new, healthier ways of coping with their experience. Children and their parents often enjoy the benefits of therapy in addressing behavioral issues, life transition, anxiety, depression, trauma, grief and loss, Sexual abuse, aggressive or defiant behavior, difficulty with peer relationships and learning issues, like ADHD. The focus of my work with young children is to help them thrive again. If you’re wondering whether your young child may benefit from therapy, I invite you to contact me, as I would be more than happy to speak with you about your concerns and how we might best address them in support your child.

Child Counselor

Steven Harris, PhD

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of Rowland Heights, CA

In order to help create lasting change, emotional stability, and healthy self-esteem for young children, I enlist the involvement of the parent(s)/ guardians as a kind of co-therapist to work with children. The parent(s) in an intact family are so regularly and intricately involved with the child that their emotional life and ways of responding to the child are of primary importance. While I will see a young child alone, I also need to work with the biggest influence on the young child, the parents or significant guardian/others in their lives to be effective for your child.

Marriage and Family Therapist Registered Intern

Is your child acting out or shutting down? Or has her personality become unrecognizable from the carefree child she once was? Many factors contribute to the change in our children's behavior. Parents' divorce, bullying, academic stress and peer conflict are some reasons you're seeing a drastic change in your child. I provide a safe and comfortable environment to allow your child to open up about his world in order to share his feelings and learn how to communicate them more effectively. For young children, I utilize play therapy to allow them to process and express feelings in their language of play. Please call me at (949) 445-3160 to see how I can help your child.
