Child Therapist

Tricia McCormick, MA, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Young children use "play" to communicate areas that might be causing them problems and more words as they age. Play can include particular toys, games, cards, stories,art and sometimes inclusions of family members. I use different types of activities to help build a rapport and trust with children and to help them tell me what they are feeling. I work with children 7 years and older. I meet alone with the parent(s) the first session to get a history of the child & issues. I might request later parent meetings to help you work on issues at home between sessions. I also have training as a forensic intervierer for abuse and can begin an interview if you or I suspect abuse.

Child Therapist

Sara Dungan, MEd, ALC, NCC

Associate Licensed Counselor, Marriage and Family Therapist Associate, Divorce & Family Mediator, Parenting Coordinator

Within driving distance of Sylvan Springs

I have worked with children for over 25 years. I was a high school teacher for 6 years, a stay-at-home mom for 12 years and during that time worked part-time at my church as the Children's Coordinator. I have a heart for children of divorce, and have counseled with many children who feel caught in the middle of their parent's divorce. I use play therapy and am active with children, playing games while getting them to talk. Also, sometimes I may incorporate family therapy and bring in mom and/or dad, so we can talk all together about what the child has been feeling. This has been very helpful in that children begin to learn how to have a voice with their parents.
