Child Therapist

Heather Gomez, MA, LMFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Applewood

I specialize in providing play therapy to young children. I have an office where I offer both directive and non-directive play therapy to children ages 2 and above. In play therapy, I like to include the family rather than treating the child as an individual. One specialty I offer with young children is and evidenced-based, Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, which helps children who have been severely traumatized to learn coping skills and to be better equipped to deal with life's events after the trauma. When the child is supported with their trauma, then concerning behaviors begin to decrease.

Child Therapist

Peg Shippert, MA, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of Applewood

When I work with preteen and older girls who are struggling to recover from traumatic experiences, I focus first on handing as much control as possible to them, and on exploring what makes feel safe, and what doesn't. We then assess their symptoms and develop skills to create even more control over their reactions to what happened to them. Most girls love to involve my professional therapy dog, Nova, in our work. Nova can help make the therapy room feel safer, and our interactions with her can indirectly address material that is hard to talk about directly. In addition to playing/working with Nova, we usually use a form of EMDR, and other evidence-based approaches for resolving trauma.

Child Therapist

Claudia Trevithick, ATR-BC, Registered Psychotherapist

Board-Certified Art Therapist, Registered Psychotherapist

Within driving distance of Applewood

As an art therapist, sandplay therapist and play therapist, I believe that the young child's most natural way of expressing him/herself is through play, I usually let the child take the lead, often working in metaphor through puppets, drawing, and sandplay. I first do an intake with the parents. After assessing and working with the child, I will include family or parent/child sessions, as family patterns and relationships are important. I also teach parenting skills, and will support the parents to enhance their skills. It is so much easier to love a child when you feel hopeful and both of you feel important to each other.

Child Therapist

Sue McCullough, LCSW

Licensed Clincial Social Worker

Within driving distance of Applewood

Young children do not have the verbal skills to explain what is bothering them and may become angry or depressed. I communicate with children at the appropriate age level using books, games, and drawing. As we play together, your child will feel safe and find a way to express feelings not easily expressed because of lack of words. I will help your child develop new coping and verbal skills that will allow expression of feelings. I will, or course, communicate with you as the parent and make suggestions to help you interact better with your child
