Child Counselor

April De Higes, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

4165 E. Thousand Oaks Blvd. Ste. 345, Westlake Village, CA

Children come to therapy for a variety of reasons. Some examples are behavioral problems, failing grades, not focusing, not staying on task, fighting with peers, poor social skills, not listening at home, and hyperactivity. Using play therapy and art therapy, I help children express themselves. Children experience counseling as fun which results in them expressing themselves honestly and resolving the issue through play. If you want to help your child be successful in school or at home, I can help you.

As a Marriage & Family Therapist, I have extensive experience working with children and adolescents. I have worked for the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health providing crisis intervention and assessment services to children and their families. It is my clinical approach to conduct an assessment to determine clarity and understanding of the specific clinical issues. It is my belief that treatment should consist of the therapist working closely with the parents and any other professionals working with the child to enhance their growth and improvement in treatment. My goal is to assist the child in improving their emotional, social and academic functioning.

Young children do not always have the words to tell us what is going on in their world. When working with young children I use a combination of art therapy, play therapy, and sometimes exploring child's schedule and activities with caregivers. I can assist with common childhood nightmares, outbursts of anger, and symptoms of depression. I can work with children, the parents, and / or a combination of the two depending upon the situation.

I have years of experience treating children in pre-school through middle school. I worked in schools and at home with oppositional children, kids with learning delays, who "act out," tantrum, do not handle transitions in activity well. I have worked with violent children, academic underachievers, children with separation anxiety, bedwetting, and children who eat non-nutritional objects. Applied Behavior Analysis is oftern used to create ground-rules that reinforce acceptable behavior and discourage negative behaviors. It's important that extended family (and teachers, and caretakers, if possible) be on the same page. A united front is essential to positively modify children's behaviors

Working children in age from 10 to adolescents is a gift. More often it also includes working the parents. Family counseling assists the entire system to move forward. This is a process of teaching, re-educating, and learning parenting techniques to assist the parents, i.e.: making them aware of their unconscious patterns, and affording children a safe environment to express themselves.
