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.

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.

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.

Christina Thompson, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of Oakville

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 Oakville

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.

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

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.
