Child Therapist

Sue McCullough, LCSW

Licensed Clincial Social Worker

Within driving distance of Derby

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

Child Therapist

Heather Gomez, MA, LMFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Derby

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.

Rebecca Frank, MA, LPC, NCC

Licensed Professional Counselor Candidate

Within driving distance of Derby

Adolescents can be a beautiful time in life, but for some it can be terrifying. Navigating through life as we try to find who we are and where we belong can be a daunting task. Support and guidance is always necessary through this time, but also learning through our experiences is vital to development as well. The pressures and expectations that adolescents carry around with them is a huge weight. Having a supportive and caring adult to walk them through this time in their life can be vital to get through this stage in life and thrive.

Child Therapist

Claudia Trevithick, ATR-BC, Registered Psychotherapist

Board-Certified Art Therapist, Registered Psychotherapist

Within driving distance of Derby

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.

Many times, child therapists overdo the family system in their quest to seek effective solutions for emotional, learning or behavioral concerns with young children.

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.
