Child Therapist

Kathryn Bryan, LMFT, ATR-BC

Marriage and Family Therapist, Board-Certified Art Therapist

Within driving distance of Hollywood

The first several years of life are some of the most significant in terms of creating a foundation for successful emotional regulation, forming positive relationships, etc. We have several therapists who specialize in treating infants, toddlers and young children. They work by helping the caregiver to form a secure attachment or strong bond with the child so that the child can feel safe and secure (essentials of healthy development). This is done through play. It can be hard to know when your infant or toddler may need the support of a professional, so please call if you have any questions and one of our therapists will be happy to consult with you.

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.

Every behavior is a way of communication. Children communicate with their caregivers through their behaviors such as (hitting, throwing, kicking, having nightmares, screaming eating too much, not getting along with others, not doing homework, having anxiety thoughts) and so on. In therapy with children I use play and art therapy interventions in order to reduce behavior. I work closely with parents to increase communication and strength the child-parent relationship. I teach and practice reward system, time out, positive communication, boundaries with parents. I attend IEP meetings when necessary.

Parenting can be a wonderful experience and at the same time a difficult and even a daunting one. If you are overwhelmed at times, suffer from pangs of anxiety or guilt around being a good enough parent or need someone to just talk to about the daily/ weekly ups and downs of being a parent then counseling with Dr. Ellie can be of great support. Aside from being a counselor, I am also a mother of two and have personal experience with being a parent. I know how difficult it can be, but I also know what a difference it can make when you have the right kind of support.

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)

Marriage and Family Therapist

For about 7 years I only worked with children in my practice. The rest of my practice has been split working with adults and with kids. With kids, its all about their instinct and comfort. If they sense that the therapist isn't comfortable or experienced with kids, they won't engage in the therapy process. I use a variety of techniques working with children, depending on their age. For smaller children, art therapy and play therapy can be very successful for a variety of reasons. The main reason is that it takes the focus off of them and they feel more at ease to talk and be open. For older children who can handle "talk therapy", using simpler language can be effective.

Child Therapist

Craig Clark, Ph.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of Hollywood

Dr. Clark has extensive training and experience as a child psychologist (including eight years as a Director of Child and Family Services). The most effective approach, in most cases, will involve an initial interview with the child and parents to obtain background information, followed by meetsing with the parents regarding parenting strategies. For adolescents, individual therapy can also be a useful.

Child Therapist

Kristin Martinez, M.S., LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Hollywood

If you are looking for help for your child who has experiences a significant stress or trauma in the recent past or even years ago, I can help. I am certified in a time-limited focused treatment that has scientifically been shown to reduce symptoms associated with the stress (Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy). The great thing about the treatment, is that it involves both the child and parents in learning about how to control symptoms as well as in the systematic processing of trauma. I not only focus on reducing symptoms, and improving overall functioning, but work with the family to be a support system for the future.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Hollywood

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.

From 0 to 5 years, children are at a pivotal age for therapeutic intervention. Children are growing in many important areas, especially in their social and emotional development. Family therapy can help to enhance child development and parent-child relationships. Through guided therapeutic interactions, such as art and play therapy activities, parents can enrich their bond with their child.
