Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

San Diego, California

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 or 877-606-6161.

Child Therapist

Aleksandra Drecun, Psy.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

12526 High Bluff Drive, Suite 300, San Diego, California

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 Marriage and Family Therapist

I have a heart for children who have been abused emotionally, physically or sexually. Play Therapy is an effective way to help a child work through their trauma. It is also a great way to teach the child ways to express their emotions. It also provides a way fo me to teach children new tools designed to give them a voice, equip and empower them. The age range is 6-12.

Child Therapist

Kari Katzenmeier, LMFT, RPT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

1525 West Lewis St. , San Diego, California

I am a Registered Play Therapist (RPT) which means that I have specialized training in working with young children to help them resolve problems they are facing. Play Therapy helps children express what is troubling them when they do not have the verbal skills to express their thoughts and feelings. In Play Therapy, toys are like the child's words and play is the child's language. In spending time with a Play Therapist a child can learn to cope with difficult emotions, develop problem solving skills, modify behavior, and communicate better with others.
