Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Dallas, Texas 75211

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 kevin@kevinflemingphd.com or 877-606-6161.

Samuel Schaperow, MSMFT, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Psychotherapist

567 Vauxhall St Extension, #207, New London co, Waterford, Connecticut 06385

Research shows trying to just “fix the kid” does not generally work. The family should be involved if at all possible. I made it a special point to learn the specific strategies and techniques for this population as I went through my schooling. To this day I have approx. one decade of experience in working with this population, and I look forward to continuing to work with children at the youngest ages, but with family involvement.

Christina Thompson, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

I offer counseling services for young children. While it may be difficult for children to identify or discuss their emotions, different types of therapy, including play therapy and behavioral therapy. Young children may have difficulty at home, in school or with their peers, and this can be challenging to manage. My role is to give children an open and safe environment to build a working relationship, so that they may come to gain trust and the ability to express their feelings in their own way.

Adam Russo, MS, LPC, .

Licensed Professional Counselor

90 Main Street, Unit 106F, Centerbrook, Connecticut 06409

I've had a ton of experience working with children as a former Karate instructor, Residential Treatment Shift Coordinator, and most recently as a clinician for Yale Universities Intensive In-Home Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Service (IICAPS). There we took a systemic approach. Speaking to teachers, other family members, doctors, and looking at any sort of evidence we could find would generally provide outstanding results in the child's prognosis

Theresa Evans Knight, MA, LMFT, MBA

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

37 Cranbury Road, Suite 102, Norwalk, Connecticut 06851

Children are a gift and a treasure. It never surprises me to hear something utterly unique come from one of my young clients. As a therapist I look to the strengths of the child and the family. I utilize play therapy and structural family therapy to help untangle difficult and challenging subject matter. Often times the child knows and reveals so much about the family and the special ways in which the family interacts with one another. One of the benefits of working with children in therapy is that I am able to identify with the child and family areas to strengthen and support. I work to encourage parents to be advocates and partners in setting clear rules, boundaries and consequences.

Paula Levy, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

3 Sylvan Road South, Westport, Connecticut 06880

You know when something is wrong with your child. It can be a divorce, a school or family problem. But, if your child is hurting, then your are hurting. Children require a therapist with special skills. I have extensive training in many forms of play therapy. Children are not able to communicate in the usual way. With play, their defenses are down and they can relate in a natural way. We have games, sand trays, art supplies, etc that are age appropriate for your child. As a mother of four children I understand your concerns and will do my best to help your child heal from the stresses they are experiencing. I know how precious your child is to you.

Joyce Colburn, LCSW

My approach to counseling children (ages 11 and up) begins with family therapy to determine to what extent parents need to be involved. I establish trust and a safe environment for children to enable them to share their issues and concerns. I also work with parents to help them understand their children's needs and develop an environment conducive to meeting those needs.
