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 have worked with children as young as 7 years old, but one of my areas of interest is working with teenagers. In my experience, in contrast to adults and young children, when teenagers experience hardships and difficulty in life, they act inward, turning away from people, as opposed to acting outwards and looking for help and support. When working with teens it is my job to show them that I am a trustworthy, "chill"/"cool"/casual guy who they can talk to about anything they want to. After kids warm up in therapy and start talking, they typically magically get better simply through having a designated person they can open up and talk to.

Child Therapist

Joan Fellows, M.A. MFC

Licensed Marriage, Family, Individual Therapist

1909 Capitol Ave. Suite I, Sacramento, California

Often times young children do not have the words to express what is going on inside of them. I help young children by providing them with different ways to express their thoughts, feelings, worries and stresses. To help young children I often use play therapy techniques, art therapy, sand tray therapy and many more experiential modalities. In therapy I provide a safe, nurturting and therapuetic environment.

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)

Child Therapist

Ivy Griffin, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, Director of Thrive

1614 X Street, Suite A, Sacramento, California

I specialize in counseling young children through play therapy, art therapy and sand tray therapy. Often, we think of "talk therapy" in which adults sit down and discuss their problems with a therapist. For children, their primary language is play--it's how they express themselves and how they experience the world, so that's the tool we use in therapy. I focus on a variety of techniques that assist children in expressing, processing and healing from difficult feelings and experiences through their language of play.
