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 email@example.com or 877-606-6161.

I work with young children therapeutically, and perform evaluations for ADHD and developmental or learning problems. Because young children lack the capacity to express them verbally, play therapy is the treatment of choice. Through play, children gain a better understanding of their experiences, work through issues that are challenging to them, and feel more cared for. I almost always incorporate parenting sessions to provide support and strategies for parents and family sessions to improve family communication and relationships. Within my group practice, we also work with infants who may be experiencing bonding difficulties due to adoption, mother's postpartum depression, or trauma.

Children experience depression, anxiety, fears, uncertainties, self-esteem issues, and confusion. Sometimes, their experiences are even bigger than an adults because they feel that they have so little power to change their situation or who they are. Play Therapies of all sorts helps young children explore, express and resolve such reactions so they can become free and fully functioning. Childhood anger is also often an expression of fear, self-hatred, feeling powerless or confused too. Dr. Carol Francis has been working with children (and their parents), ages 3-18 since 1977 in clinics, hospitals, schools and now in her private practice. Call 310-543-1824

Marriage and Family Therapist

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.
Craig Clark, Ph.D.
Licensed Clinical Psychologist
Location: 1800 Fair Oaks Avenue, South Pasadena
Dr. Clark has extensive training and experience as a child psychologist (including eight years as a Director of Child and Family Services). The most effective approach, in most cases, will involve an initial interview with the child and parents to obtain background information, followed by meetsing with the parents regarding parenting strategies. For adolescents, individual therapy can also be a useful.

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.

Licensed Marriage & Child and Family Therapist
Location: 5601 W. Slauson Ave. #192, Culver City
Many children lack the ability to verbalize and express how they feel, and thereby they may act up a behavior and become agitated, sometimes this may effect their school performance. I work with both a child and the parent to help understand the family dynamic and any issues that may have caused the child's behavior. With a complete assessment I can determine whether the child's behavior is a phase or something more serious that may require a therapeutic approach. I use Play therapy and/or Art therapy to help a child to express the underlying feelings and emotions that has caused the behavior. I, also work with the parents as needed in order to educate them and help the child progress.
