Licensed Psychologist

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.

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.

Clinical Psychologist

Having a troubled child can be very upsetting, whether the child seems worried, sad, angry, or oppositional. My work focuses on alleviating the child's suffering as well as helping the parent learn strategies to feel more effective in dealing with their child's problems. In helping young children, I usually work with the child (through talking therapy and/or play therapy,) the parent (through exploring behavioral and communication strategies) and the parent-child relationship (through assisting the family members to communicate better and collaborate on solutions to the problems.) My approach is eclectic and includes psychodynamic, behavioral and cognitive behavioral element

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.

Child Therapist

Donna Schinik, L.C.S.W.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within driving distance of Norwalk

Often times children are struggling with issues in their own life and cannot communicate their need for help. It is a parent's job to recognize when something is not right. Helping children identify problems and work through them is a skill that lasts a lifetime. My work with children is based on trust. Only when they feel safe will they begin to reveal their inner thoughts and fears. This is achieved mainly through play therapy and parent child sessions.

Child Therapist

Joyce Colburn, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within driving distance of Norwalk

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.

Child Therapist

Theresa Evans Knight, MA, LMFT, MBA

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Norwalk

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.

Child Therapist

Marie Fennell, M.A., L.M.F.T.

Marriage and Family Therapist

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.

Like adults, a child’s behavior can change when (s)he is feeling stressed out. Common symptoms are suddenly seeming withdrawn, worried, stressed, sulky or tearful. Therapy can help kids improve their problem-solving skills and also teach them the value of seeking help. The kinds of problems that are addressed include: school stress (homework, bullying or peer pressure), family issues (parents fighting, impending divorce or other transitions like a loss, move or serious illness). If you feel your child might have an emotional or behavioral problem or needs help coping with a difficult life event, trust your instincts and call for a consultation.
