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.

When working with young children I make use of play exercises, as playing is one of the primary ways in which children express what is going on in their "world" both mentally and emotionally. I also place significant emphasis on their family life, as a child's behavior is strongly impacted by their home life. I also provide parent coaching in order to equip the parents with effective skills to manage the child's behavioral difficulties. I believe that effectively helping a child often requires both individual therpay with the child and family therapy.

Marriage and Family Therapist

Young children need support navigating their emotions as much as adults do, maybe even more. But the way children learn and cope with their emotions is different than adults. It requires translation from the adult understanding to the child’s language and there back again. I’m here to work with your child to find their way of navigating the world with stability and balance.

Aleksandra Drecun, Psy.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

In 92130 - Nearby to Lemon Grove.

Working with young children requires that the professional possesses specialized knowledge and skills that enable them to identify problem behaviors and formulate appropriate interventions that are developmentally appropriate for the child. As a psychologist trained to work with children and families, I develop individualized treatment plans appropriate to each child's and family's specific needs. Working with children, I use an playful approach which will engage the child in addressing any psychic conflicts they may be experiencing and find healthy ways to address those conflicts so that children can function at their most optimal level in all facets of life.

Licensed Independent Marriage and Family Therapist Supervisor

Available for Online Therapy

Many therapists share they use play therapy in their practice with children, but have not taken further training on its use in therapy. I am a Registered Play Therapist Supervisor, which means I completed 3 years and 3000 additional hours of practice after licensure, clinical supervision, consistent continued education courses, and significant focus in at least two play therapy evidence based practices. I utilize Child Centered Play Therapy, Filial Therapy, Digital Play Therapy, and Prescriptive Play Therapy to address children's needs in addition to creative arts therapies (Drama Therapy, Art Therapy interventions).

Child Therapist

John Kane, AMFT, APCC

Associate Marriage and Family Therapist

In 92154 - Nearby to Lemon Grove.

After 11 years of working with children, I find it more effective to work with you, the parent. This is not because you are responsible for the way your child is behaving or what your child is going through, but because you have the most positive power and influence in your child's life. If I can use what I know through education and experience to empower you the parent to connect to your child, it will be more impactful and long lasting than if I spend therapy sessions with them. Your child will also find healing through their relationship with you, increasing trust, and strengthening your relationship for the present and future. You will have your Parenting Power back, stronger than ever!

Simple behavioral management fails to develop the internal locus of control that is necessary for developing character and self-discipline. Forming a self-identity and learning to live with purpose is a necessary life skill for children to learn in order to live into their fullest self. GRIT Kids Coaches are trained to help you do the work of raising your child with intention so you can see that little person grow into all they are capable of.
