Child Counselor

Lara Garibian, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

16055 Ventura Blvd., Suite #555, Encino, CA

Young children can’t always articulate their emotional problems. Some children need help coping with bullying, peer pressure, or academic demands. Others may be confused and overwhelmed by family issues, such as a move, divorce, or illness. With some children, the cause of their tearful or sulky state is unclear. If you’re concerned about your child’s mood, appetite, academic performance, social interaction, or behavior for any reason, Lara can help you help your child. Therapy teaches children how to reach out for help and reduces the risk of further trauma in adulthood. Lara can help your child express emotions and develop problem-solving skills.

Working children in age from 10 to adolescents is a gift. More often it also includes working the parents. Family counseling assists the entire system to move forward. This is a process of teaching, re-educating, and learning parenting techniques to assist the parents, i.e.: making them aware of their unconscious patterns, and affording children a safe environment to express themselves.

Child Counselor

K. Michelle Tapia, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

8476 Oakdale Ave, Winnetka, CA

Young children do not always have the words to tell us what is going on in their world. When working with young children I use a combination of art therapy, play therapy, and sometimes exploring child's schedule and activities with caregivers. I can assist with common childhood nightmares, outbursts of anger, and symptoms of depression. I can work with children, the parents, and / or a combination of the two depending upon the situation.

Children come to therapy for a variety of reasons. Some examples are behavioral problems, failing grades, not focusing, not staying on task, fighting with peers, poor social skills, not listening at home, and hyperactivity.
