Joyce Colburn, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 06880 - Nearby to Oxford.

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.

Christina Thompson, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

In 06525 - Nearby to Oxford.

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.

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 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.

Margaret Burton, MS
Child Therapist

Margaret Burton, MS

Pre-Licenced Professional Counselor

In 06461 - Nearby to Oxford.

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.

Child Therapist

Paula Levy, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

In 06877 - Nearby to Oxford.

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.

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

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

Marriage and Family Therapist

In 06804 - Nearby to Oxford.

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.

Matthew Bastiaanse, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family therapist

In 06010 - Nearby to Oxford.

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.
