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 Counselor

Sean Faulkner, MFTi

Marriage and Family Therapist Intern

Within Driving Distance of San Mateo, CA

I find that counseling with children is most effective with the cooperation and collaboration of the child's parents or primary caregivers. Together with you, the child's parent/guardian, I will develop a treatment plan for how we can best meet your child's needs. Issues in younger children can sometimes be symptoms of issues in the family system, so family involvement is an essential component in supporting your child.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Children can benefit from therapy if they are currently facing stressors. It helps children develop problem-solving skills and also the value of seeking assistance before things get hard. I help the children and their families cope with stressors, that results in emotional and behavioral issues. I am able to assist children who are currently dealing with school stressors, such as homework, test anxiety, peer pressure or a significant life event such as the death of a family member, friend,pet and from a divorce. I help children and family members with tools and skills to cope with changes in the behavior, appetite, social functioning, sleep, which affects all other family members.

Child Counselor

Laurie Chandler, MA

LMFT 86949

Within Driving Distance of San Mateo, CA

Sandplay therapy, art and play therapy help young children communicate. Children usually cannot put their concerns into words. They may not know what is bothering them. The forms of therapy I use give children a place and way to communicate and work through issues related to tension in the home, divorce, death, abuse, bullying, separation anxiety, new-school/grade fears, anger and other emotions. I work privately with the child and consult with the parents to help their child have a happy and healthy childhood.

Child Counselor

Alice Locke-Chezar, MFT, ATR

Marriage & Family Therapist, Registered Art Therapist

Within Driving Distance of San Mateo, CA

In my practice I work with young children with a variety of difficulties from controlling their anxiety, anger and tantrums, to getting along better with friends and siblings and parents. I also help them with school difficulties that include failing grades, and behavior issues. I work with the child, parent and often the teacher to remember what Erikkson taught that "behind each behavior is a feeling". My goal is to help the child access their feelings, and in a safe place, explore their feelings and behavior while learning tools to help contol them so they can live happy and fulfilled lives.

Child Psychologist

John Snyder, Psy.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of San Mateo, CA

I provide a 10-week structured parenting program to help the parents of children who have been diagnosed with ADHD, who are behaving in oppositional, out of control and defiant ways. You will learn the origins of problematic child behavior and the ways in which you may be unwittingly reinforcing it. I will work to help you improve your relationship with your child by teaching you how to powerfully shape your child's behavior with praise instead of punishment. I will also teach you how use punishment more effectively when it becomes necessary.

Child Counselor

Matthew Lindgren, MFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of San Mateo, CA

Matt Lindgren is a male child therapist who offers play therapy & conjoint family play therapy to help children with behavioral problems, child abuse, domestic violence, and foster care. Whenever possible, I attempt to have a parent/caregiver present during play therapy sessions, as an active participant. I find therapy is more effective if children can connect with the important people in their lives during a session as a way of healing. I'm one of a few Oakland therapists trained to use EMDR & Somatic Experiencing interventions with children in play therapy. I've adapted these techniques to use them in play, making play therapy much more powerful.

Child Counselor

Kelly Montgomery, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of San Mateo, CA

I can work with families that have young children and the dynamics that that brings. I typically with work with the couple in intergrating a new phase of life and not the child and in some instances with the family as a whole depending on the age of the child. Motherhood and Fatherhood of a little one's is a uprooting ever changing time and learning how to cope and adapt can be paramount.

Child Counselor

Jason Esswein, M.S., LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of San Mateo, CA

Children have not yet learned how to shield themselves from conflict, negativity, etc. Therefore, they are akin to "sponges," soaking up whatever they are exposed to. I provide children with a healthy, authentic space in which they can connect with their feelings through play and discussion. I also work with parents on styles of communication (those they might use with their children as well as their spouse/coparent) that may be inadvertently affecting children.
