Child Therapist

Matthew Bastiaanse, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family therapist

Within driving distance of Meriden

I have a great need to protect children. I feel most children are vulnerable to the complexities of the adult world. I feel children heal faster and grow emotionally regarding their age developmental goals when the parents are fully invested in taking care of themselves. I offer parent training classes, and psychotherapy for adults for whom themselves struggled as children, which in turn, helps their child to reach his/her maximum potential.

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.

When a child struggles, a parent struggles's 10x more. Sometimes, we just don't know what to do make it better. I can help. Issues children experience such as, anger, low self-esteem, being bullied, prolonged nightmares, discipline problems are best addressed when they occur. Together, we will help your child work through the problem. I believe you, the parent are the best resource for solutions. Who knows your child better than you? I will provide you support and methods/tools to continue helping your child at home. I incorporate Sand Tray and Play therapy techniques in our sessions, as these work well with young children who have difficulty communicating what's bothering them.

Child Therapist

Christina Thompson, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

I offer counseling services for young children. While it may be difficult for children to identify or discuss their emotions, different types of therapy, including play therapy and behavioral therapy. Young children may have difficulty at home, in school or with their peers, and this can be challenging to manage. My role is to give children an open and safe environment to build a working relationship, so that they may come to gain trust and the ability to express their feelings in their own way.

Child Therapist

Margaret Burton, MS

Pre-Licenced Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of Meriden

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.
