Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

You know when something is wrong with your child. It can be a divorce, a school or family problem. But, if your child is hurting, then your are hurting. Children require a therapist with special skills. I have extensive training in many forms of play therapy. Children are not able to communicate in the usual way. With play, their defenses are down and they can relate in a natural way. We have games, sand trays, art supplies, etc that are age appropriate for your child. As a mother of four children I understand your concerns and will do my best to help your child heal from the stresses they are experiencing. I know how precious your child is to you.

Children are a wonderful gift to a family - the world is brand new to them, and they bring with them a unique way of seeing and experiencing life experiences for the first time. It can, however, be challenging sometimes to understand why they do the things that they do. Sometimes, it can even be frustrating when they don't meet our expectations, or worse, it seems they don't even want to try. I like to work with children and understand the issues they are dealing with, and ultimately help them respond more positively to the requests and direction of their parents and educators.

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.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 06851 - Nearby to Bethel.

Children are a gift and a treasure. It never surprises me to hear something utterly unique come from one of my young clients. As a therapist I look to the strengths of the child and the family. I utilize play therapy and structural family therapy to help untangle difficult and challenging subject matter. Often times the child knows and reveals so much about the family and the special ways in which the family interacts with one another. One of the benefits of working with children in therapy is that I am able to identify with the child and family areas to strengthen and support. I work to encourage parents to be advocates and partners in setting clear rules, boundaries and consequences.

Licensed Psychologist

In 10536 - Nearby to Bethel.

As a Family Therapist I frequently deal with the stresses that marital conflicts have on the rest of the family. The impact of these difficulties on the kids often results in behavioral problems that further stress the already burdened couple. When you bring your children to see me, or come in without them to discuss parenting, you will benefit by improving your understanding of what your kids are actually saying to you, and begin to wind down old tendencies to just react to their behavior. You will learn effective ways to help your kids deal with their upset feelings, and an unexpected by product of this will be that you'll feel better about yourself, too.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 06880 - Nearby to Bethel.

My approach to counseling children (ages 11 and up) begins with family therapy to determine to what extent parents need to be involved. I establish trust and a safe environment for children to enable them to share their issues and concerns. I also work with parents to help them understand their children's needs and develop an environment conducive to meeting those needs.

Licensed Professional Counselor

Working with children ages five and up who are experiencing bullying, social alienation, learning difficulties, self esteem corrosion, and conflicted feelings related to divorce, is a primary focus of my 30+ years of clinical practice. Age appropriate sessions involve both talk play and artistic therapeutic techniques while providing practical tools for effective communication. In a collaborative partnership I include the parents, teaching them effective parenting strategies for each unique child. My goal is to educate parents to become change leaders in their homes. My objective is to provide the family with the skills and tools to achieve ongoing success in their home environment.

Licenced Professional Counselor

In 06461 - Nearby to Bethel.

Do you have a strong willed child? I can help. Children react to everyday stressors in their own way and no two children react the same way to the same stressful event. The skill of self-regulation is a coping mechanism all children need to better navigate their worlds. I utilize cognitive behavioral and play therapies to teach these skills to both the child and their parents. Parents will then reinforce these life changing skills to enable their children to have a more positive outcome. Together, we can lay the foundation for a healthy happy child both at home and in school.

I am a retired teacher who taught parenting for twenty five years and have a child development background. I work with parents developing skills to add in helping with discipline, school performance, and social skills. I listen to children and use art and play therapy to identify unconscious problems that may be causing stress or that may have occurred outside of the parents knowledge or understanding.

Licensed Psychologist

There just isn't anything much worse than hearing that your beautiful child has been identified by a teacher or even another mother-father as having a "problem".Most parents respond,at first, with denial. It is just too difficult to accept that there may be a real issue brewing or that one has already taken hold. I am highly skilled at diagnosing all forms of psychologically based childhood disorders but even more important, as a mother who has raised a special needs child I know how to help. I also know when a child has been misdiagnosed and a bit of parent training is needed. I work as an advocate in the schools combined with home visits to observe and direct parents how to cope.
