MFTI

I specialize in working with pre-teens, teens, and adolescents. Primarily I work with ages 11 & up. In working with younger populations, I find that they are sharp and acutely observant. Providing a a space where they feel safe to share their innermost thoughts and feelings while offering tools they can take with them out into the world to see examples of concrete progress helps solidify the therapeutic bond and trust in the process.

There is nothing more important than we do in life than parent children. Raising healthy children is an important part of your legacy. Watching your children struggle with sadness, fear, or anger can feel very upsetting. Children can benefit greatly from play therapy, because children naturally work though their psychological issues with play. I started working with children from 3 to 12 in 1996 at Almaden Valley Youth Counseling Services. Success with children involves parents and teachers. If a child's parent are willing to participate in the counseling process, then much can be accomplished. A secure bond between the child and parents is critical.

You are your child's most important connection in life. Parent-child relationships form the basis of how we see ourselves in the world. However, kids don't come with an owner's manual! Often how we were treated as children serves as our only unconscious - or conscious - guide for what to do. Learning from how we would have liked to have been treated can help parents feel more confident and secure in helping their children survive and thrive in the world. I help parents develop the kind of secure attachment that their children need in order for children to feel confident and safe in exploring the world.

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.

I find that counseling with children is most effective with the cooperation and collaboration of the child's parents or primary caregivers. Together with you, the child's parent/guardian, I will develop a treatment plan for how we can best meet your child's needs. Issues in younger children can sometimes be symptoms of issues in the family system, so family involvement is an essential component in supporting your child.

Matthew Lindgren, MFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 94612 - Nearby to Cherryland.

Matt Lindgren is a male child therapist who offers play therapy & conjoint family play therapy to help children with behavioral problems, child abuse, domestic violence, and foster care. Whenever possible, I attempt to have a parent/caregiver present during play therapy sessions, as an active participant. I find therapy is more effective if children can connect with the important people in their lives during a session as a way of healing. I'm one of a few Oakland therapists trained to use EMDR & Somatic Experiencing interventions with children in play therapy. I've adapted these techniques to use them in play, making play therapy much more powerful.

Children have not yet learned how to shield themselves from conflict, negativity, etc. Therefore, they are akin to "sponges," soaking up whatever they are exposed to. I provide children with a healthy, authentic space in which they can connect with their feelings through play and discussion. I also work with parents on styles of communication (those they might use with their children as well as their spouse/coparent) that may be inadvertently affecting children.

Alice Locke-Chezar, MFT, ATR

Marriage & Family Therapist, Registered Art Therapist

In 94306 - Nearby to Cherryland.

In my practice I work with young children with a variety of difficulties from controlling their anxiety, anger and tantrums, to getting along better with friends and siblings and parents. I also help them with school difficulties that include failing grades, and behavior issues. I work with the child, parent and often the teacher to remember what Erikkson taught that "behind each behavior is a feeling". My goal is to help the child access their feelings, and in a safe place, explore their feelings and behavior while learning tools to help contol them so they can live happy and fulfilled lives.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist #100342

In 94598 - Nearby to Cherryland.

It's one of the most challenging feelings imaginable to watch our children struggle with their emotional and social selves. For many parents, we'd gladly take their pain as our own if we could. A child's brain works very differently from a teen's or an adults, so therapy needs to be different too! When working with children I use a combination of Play Therapy, Sand Tray, Behavioral Therapy, Art Therapy, and Talk Therapy. Where possible mindfulness, yoga, and other therapies adjusted for child therapy can help children to increase focus, manage their emotional selves, improve cognitive abilities, and manage their bodies. Give your child his/her best chance for the future. Call today!
