Working with children is a specialty and must be treated in this way. Children are most commonly brought to therapy, not on their own motivation. I am able to build a rapport with children and help them understand the benefits of therapy. I am able to engage them in healing their hurts, or lessening their anxieties, or even empowering them to control their own behavior. I have built my life around working with and relating to children, and nothing gives me more pleasure than to watch them succeed and gain all that life has to offer.

Finding a therapist who can work with young children is a challenge. Our therapist, Fred Theobald, has experience helping children who are dealing with issues of depression, adjustment to changes, coping with divorce, behavior problems at home, and social skills. By providing a warm, gentle approach, children are more likely to open up about what their experience is. He integrates parents into the therapy, so that they know how to work with their children, rather than against them. Contact us today to set up an appointment with Fred.

Children many times do not even know how they feel about their circumstances and often have difficulty communicating it. Even if they did know many times they won't share it with a parent out of fear. Therapy helps a child overcome difficult emotions, learn how to regulate them in a healthy way, and provides valuable feedback for the parents. There are specific tools used that provide a child the ability to express their feeling accurately.

This gives Dr. Kteily a complete picture of the person's life and where changes need to be made. Of course some topics require a sharper approach such as addiction, anxiety and panic, and depression.

Children are special and they need a special kind of therapy to allow them to share in developmentally appropriate ways. I am a Registered Play Therapist with specialized training and credentials to work with children. Many therapists will work with children, but I encourage you to ask about their training and credentials. Play therapy is a structured, theoretically based approach that builds on children's normal communicative and learning process. Play therapy helps children express what is troubling them, using toys as words, and play as their language.

Children can often frustrate us more than any other age group. Well, maybe not teenagers! But, have you forgotten that you were once a child too? Yes, we have all been through that period of life where we are curious about the world, curious about ourselves, have an incredible imagination, and playing is the greatest thing ever! Yet, we're still trying to learn about what's right and wrong. We don't understand the world and why things happen. We just know we're sad, but we don't know why.

Children are not equipped with adult words to help them express what is going on within their minds and hearts and lives. With more than half our marriages ending in divorce, kids these days are suffering in a huge way that is heartbreaking. Play therapy is all about giving children a safe place to "play out" their experiences, "act out" their anxiety and anger that they don't have the maturity to understand or communicate and learn coping skills to help them find peace in a chaotic world. A must for children who have experienced loss in any form in their lives or need appropriate empowerment to overcome bullying or other obstacles they encounter on a daily basis.

I do enjoy working with young children, but I am not a play therapist. I help children six years old and older in family therapy. Sometimes this also means that I will meet with parents without their child present to gather background information as well as share diagnostic concerns and homework challenges that I give to both parents and the child. The homework challenges are helpful ways to create change in between sessions that empowers parents to see results and better understand why their child is struggling.

Play is the natural means of communication for children. Play therapy allows children to approach their problems in an age-appropriate manner. Children naturally develop problem solving, interpersonal, conflict-resolution, and coping skills through play. Play Therapy creates an intentional place for children to address the grief, hurt, loss, uncertainty, insecurity, or trauma they have experienced. Therapists help children sooth themselves, break problems into bite size pieces, develop strategies, and understand their emotions in a fashion that is familiar and comfortable to the child.

In Play Therapy a trained Play Therapist can establish a therapeutic relationship with your child. Through the use of play the counselor aids your child in learning how to express feelings, modify behavior, develop problem solving skills, and learn new ways of relating to others. The play therapy environment provides a safe emotional distance from the child's problems so that he or she can begin to develop appropriate expressions of thoughts and feelings. In the playroom the most troubling problems can be safely confronted and lasting resolutions can be discovered, rehearsed, and mastered.
