San Francisco, 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.

416 Fair Oaks St., Ste. 414A, San Francisco, California

Sandplay therapy, art and play therapy help young children communicate. Children usually cannot put their concerns into words. They may not know what is bothering them. The forms of therapy I use give children a place and way to communicate and work through issues related to tension in the home, divorce, death, abuse, bullying, separation anxiety, new-school/grade fears, anger and other emotions. I work privately with the child and consult with the parents to help their child have a happy and healthy childhood.

582 Market Street, Suite 312, San Francisco, California

I offer play therapy for children and consultation with their parents in regards to how they can enhance or change their parenting skills. I also work with tweens and teens and help them address the specific issues which arise when transitioning into adolescence. I have felt honored to work with the young adults and children I have worked with over the years. I worked with severely emotionally disturbed children and helped to bring a sense of calm and stability to their lives as individuals and to their families as well.

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

Amelia Katkov, MA, MFTI


1795 Union Street at Octavia, San Francisco, California

I specialize in working with pre-teens, teens, and adolescents. Primarily I work with ages 11 & up. In working with younger populations, I find that they are sharp and acutely observant. Providing a a space where they feel safe to share their innermost thoughts and feelings while offering tools they can take with them out into the world to see examples of concrete progress helps solidify the therapeutic bond and trust in the process.
