Child Therapist

Katherine Jewett, MA LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist #100342

Within driving distance of Concord

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!

Child Therapist

Matthew Lindgren, MFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

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.

Do you have a stressed out pre-teen or middle school child? Are they suffering from school anxiety or peer issues? Do they have a chronic health condition like type 1 diabetes? I can help them navigate the complicated world of pre-adolescence. The hormones are raging and they may have stomach aches, headaches due to emotional issues. Sometimes they don't have the words to communicate their feelings and I am flexible in my approach. Together we will work on tuning into their emotions and increasing coping skills.

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.

Children can benefit from therapy if they are currently facing stressors. It helps children develop problem-solving skills and also the value of seeking assistance before things get hard. I help the children and their families cope with stressors, that results in emotional and behavioral issues. I am able to assist children who are currently dealing with school stressors, such as homework, test anxiety, peer pressure or a significant life event such as the death of a family member, friend,pet and from a divorce. I help children and family members with tools and skills to cope with changes in the behavior, appetite, social functioning, sleep, which affects all other family members.

I can work with families that have young children and the dynamics that that brings. I typically with work with the couple in intergrating a new phase of life and not the child and in some instances with the family as a whole depending on the age of the child. Motherhood and Fatherhood of a little one's is a uprooting ever changing time and learning how to cope and adapt can be paramount.

Child and adolescent counseling can play a very important role in the life of a child who is dealing with one or more of the wide area of childhood challenges and traumas. Children can become the unintended victims of parents who had little training to become parents, had little time to be parents or experienced separation, abandonment, divorce , a change in parenting, step-parenting, foster parenting as well were challenged by dysfunctional homes with addictions, emotional disturbances and instabilities, extreme fighting, arguing, violence and abuse, frequent moving, and being passed from one divorced parent to another or from family member to family memeber. All these and many additional growing up challenges and traumas can be potent and disturbing...(view profile to read more)
