Child Psychologist

Is your child struggling with nightmares, tantrums, fear, bed wetting, incontinence, or trauma? We strongly feel that early intervention is the best method. Rather than allowing patterns and behaviors to become ingrained, we help children through expressive play therapy to process emotions, confront fears, and develop new skills/behaviors. We often find that parents are too close to their children to see when there are significant problems developing and it is the voice of teachers, friends, or other parents that make subtle suggestions about getting your child some additional resources. Pay attention to those suggestions they might see something you do not see. We are here to help!

Child Counselor

Kathleen Shack, M.S., LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Mediator, Coach

Families play an important role in children's healing processes. The interaction between children's problems and their families is always complex. Sometimes children develop problems as a way of signaling that there is something wrong in the family. Other times the entire family becomes distressed because the child's problems are so disruptive. In all cases, children and families heal faster when they work together. I assist parents with parenting skills through psychoeducation and coaching. We work together to develop age appropriate discipline and parenting. Involved in this process are family sessions with parents and children together so that family issues can be resolved.

Children respond to sincerity positively. They also seem to be able to sense love. A 6 year old child recently drew a picture of me saying "I love you". Now I never told this child I loved her and I was working with her mother to increase structure in the home but she sensed this and responded to it. Her behavior improved after 3 sessions. Some children bear burdens that they should never have to bear at such a young age. One of my specializations is doing TFCBT with children. I can also assist with various family issues such as separation, and divorce.

At this point in my professional life as a psychologist I no longer directly work with young children. However, I do work with the children's parents in order to assist them in meeting the multiple challenges which can be present in a marriage, which in turn can have an effect, not only on the emotional well-being of the children, but on themselves as well.

Child Counselor

Lois Muir-McClain, M.A., LPC, NCC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within Driving Distance of Sugar Hill, GA

I work with children and adolescents ages 6-18. My approach is to let them participate in their therapy, so that they have a sense of control, and not that something is "being done to them." Every child is different, so my approach depends on their personality and behavior. With quiet, or defiant children, I may start by playing a board game or doing puzzles so we can get to know each other. With a more outgoing or verbal kid, they may have a lot to tell me and just want to talk. Still others respond to workbook exercises which I provide feedback on. Call me at 678-209-1348 to discuss my approach with children and also so I can find out more about your situation and what your child needs.

Child Counselor

Lynn Louise Wonders, LPC, RPT-S, CPCS

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within Driving Distance of Sugar Hill, GA

I have been working with young children (ages 2-11) very closely since 2003. I am the Early Childhood Expert for a very well known private child development care provider company and I've been providing play therapy services and training for other therapists in play therapy for many years. Play therapy allows me to see and understand what is happening for young children in their lives, minds and hearts. Through play therapy, young children are able to "work through" what is bothering them in the presence of my unconditional acceptance and delighted reflections of their expressions and experiences in the play room. I work closely with parents of young children as a part of the process.
