Individual and Family Therapists

Within Driving Distance of Santa Ana, 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

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

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Santa Ana, 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.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

Within Driving Distance of Santa Ana, CA

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.

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

Heather Browne, PsyD, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Santa Ana, 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.

We are delighted to work with children of all ages. Initially, I will have myself or one of my clinical staff conduct a clinical interview or assessment, and I will evaluate their level of functioning, cognitively, emotionally, academically, socially, and behaviorally and determine a customized solution that will help your child achieve the highest level of success possible.

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.

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....
