Licensed Professional Counselor

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.

Children and Adolescents have obstacles today that were not present even 10 years ago. There is a huge generational gap that I can help connect. The expectations on young women and men are quite different and much more than they were before. I can help children and adolescents become connected to themselves and reconnected to their parents. This opens the path to mindful-freedom for the whole family.

The education, care and development of our children has advanced in many ways over the years. Yet there are still many children in society today who struggle with mental and emotional difficulties that keep them from feeling secure and happy. Through play therapy, your children can learn how to express negative thoughts and emotions in a positive and constructive manner.
Children age 2-10 years old often have a difficult time expressing their thoughts and feelings in words. This can resort to them becoming frustrated, angry and discontent. In play therapy, kids are encouraged to convey their feelings as they play with their toys. Because a major part of children’s lives revolve around playing,....

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if kids came with owner’s manuals? Well, as parent’s know all too well, they don’t, which means that parenting oftentimes can feel like a series of trial-and-error experiences. These experiences, in turn, can sometimes leave us feeling frustrated, exhausted, exasperated and perhaps even afraid that we might be doing more harm than good. Because of this pressure and uncertainty (especially among first time parents), when I work with young children and their parents, our focus is to identify the strengths parents and children bring with them, and use this as a starting point towards addressing whatever concerns may be occurring. I utilize this approach because having worked....
Julia Stacy, MA, LPC-S
Licensed Professional Counselor and Supervisor
Location: 16800 Dallas Parkway, Suite 150, Dallas
Play Therapy is utilized with young children so that they are given the opportunity to express their feelings, practice constructive behaviors and work out solutions to problems. Unlike adults, children use play and toys as their language. Though children have often not yet developed the verbal capacity to express their feelings and experiences using words, they naturally express themselves though play. It is effective in addressing a variety of issues such as behavior problems, divorce, family conflict, school difficulties, attachment and peer issues. Ms. Stacy facilitates problem solving and acceptance of responsibility so that the child is empowered to make better choices.
Audrey Kteily, Ph.D, LPC-S
Location: 702 S. Denton Tap Rd, Suite 140, Coppell
Dr. Kteily takes a family systems approach when working with clients. She assesses not only the individual but the family as well as other environments the person is active in. 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. Dr. Kteily works closely with each individual's physicians to manage their symptoms while helping each person find the root cause and eradicate it.
Marcey Mettica, MS, LPC, RPT
Licensed Professional Counselor, Registered Play Therapist, Certified Positive Discipline Parent Educator
Location: 3067 Falcon Road, Suite 100 , Prosper
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.

Licensed Professional Counselor & Registered Play Theraptist
Location: 3535 Firewheel Suite F, Flower Mound
Children speak to us via their play, while we, as adults, attempt to use thinking and logic to communicate and understand them. Even older children often do not have the ability, to express themselves in a way that makes sense to adults. Our qualified counselors use activities that are adapted to meet the developmental stages of children to adolescence. Our therapists are trained Registered Play Therapist, a specific, world renowned, empirically studied approach to connecting with children via their natural language of play. In addition, we often teach these skills to parents as to help build and foster the child-parent relationship. We see very young children to adulthood.
Denise Butler, M.Ed, LPC-Intern, NCC
Licensed Professional Counselor-Intern
Location: 2901 Corporate Circle, Flower Mound
Play is the language that young children use to communicate. It is also the way in which children work and establish meaning of the world. Play is practice for the real thing. In play therapy, I use play to engage children, peek into their world, and help them learn to communicate effectively. Play therapy is unique because it allows children to utilize the therapeutic process with a limited emotional vocabulary. I use play therapy for children 3-9 and I use activity therapy in conjunction with play for children over the age of 5.

Children can be very effective members in a family therapy setting, as they are honest and usually open about their feelings, and their perception of what the issues are in the dynamics of the family.
Children who exhobit behavioral or emotional issues are often expressing their anxiety, stress, or unresolved feelings around problems that are not being dealt with wihtin the family. Contrary to popular belief, children who exhibit issues, are not the "identified patient", but rather are expressing symptoms of a greater problem. Parents need to address with their family the issues present, and often times, when issues are addressed, children will cease to display unhealhty behaviors.
