Sometimes kids, like adults, can benefit from therapy. Therapy can help kids develop problem-solving skills and also teach them the value of seeking help. Therapists can help kids and families cope with stress and a variety of emotional and behavioral issues. Many kids need help dealing with school stress, such as homework, test anxiety, bullying, or peer pressure. Others need help to discuss their feelings about family issues, particularly if there's a major transition, such as a divorce, move, or serious illness.

Working with children can be complicated because of two primary factors. The first factor deals with the fact that children are dependent on adults. Their own problems affect them, and adults' (parents') issues and behaviors affect them. The question is: how does one determine whether the children's problems are coming from them or from their environment? Parental involvement in the therapy process is paramount for the success of children in therapy. Parents can help by talking about the behaviors their children are experiencing as well as the context of those behaviors. With the help of the parents, as a therapist, I can help to modify and coach through new parenting behaviors.

Child Therapist

Kathryn Doll, LCSW, MA, ATR

Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Registered Art Therapist

Within driving distance of Atlantis

Children communicate so much to us through their artwork and their play. By using art therapy and play therapy techniques, children can feel free and safe to express their concerns and access their strengths. I feel that therapy with young children is NOT about interpreting their art or their play, but about hearing them and helping them learn to manage feelings, develop communication skills, develop self awareness and responsibility for self. You can reach me at 754-229-9662.

Therapy for children involves full analysis of issues which can include, but not limited to; psychoeducation on child development, parenting practices, blended family topics, positive coping skills in home and school, academy success, treatment of ADHD, sensory processing disorders, disruptive mood-dysregulation disorder, anxiety, depression including bereavement, bullying and social skills/communication development. Common to children and teens are peer pressure, broken family or friend relationship issues, and technology lifestyles that can overshadow and deplete critical "ages and stages" of healthy development. Child/ teen therapies are best incorporated with the caregivers.

Child Therapist

Susan Christiansen, Ph.D, LMFT, MSW

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Atlantis

As a marriage and family therapist, I see the innocence of a child as the foundation for well-being. I work with the child's strengths in the context of family, school, friends, divorce, abuse, and other situations which may impact the emotional health of the child. Everything is in relationship to other forms of behavior. We derive a fuller understanding of these relational patterns from a brief comparison of other scenarios. Looking at the bigger picture can lead to a happier story ending.

Youth Connection is an intensive program for those individuals who suffer from addiction, but are also faced with the challenges of young adulthood. Teenagers and young adults, 18 – 25 years of age, who suffer from drug or alcohol addiction often find themselves dealing with additional pressures. They may have trouble with their workload at school, associate with delinquent peers, suffer from a lack parental supervision, or just generally exhibit feelings of inadequacy, poor self-image, or even depression. They have not learned the necessary skills that would otherwise enable them to cope with everyday life situations.

I help children process their emotions through play and other proven therapies. If your child has experienced an emotional upset, trauma or difficulty, I provide a safe, neutral and supportive environment for them to express their feelings and become "regulated." Their behavior will shift and they will cope with their feelings and circumstances in a new and positive way. I have worked extensively with at-risk children in the most stressful circumstances. Through play therapy, behavioral therapy and other evidence based techniques, I can assist your child with a wide range of problems, behaviors and disorders, as well as providing parenting support and education.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Mental Health Counselor

When dealing with young children and their issues, parents often find themselves at a loss. After all, having a baby doesn't mean you get an instructions manual! Even if you're a parent who reads all the self-help books, you may still find it discouraging and start to lose steam, wondering if these suggestions are really going to work. When working with the issues of young children, I focus on helping you as parents learn the most effective ways to interact with your child, so that you can help them to grow into emotionally intelligent adults. Emotional intelligence is our ability to read other people’s signals and react appropriately to them and influences our chances for success in life.

So many child behavior and parenting problems simply vanish, once we understand a few basics. Children are not small adults, and should not be expected to respond the way adults do. Children, like everyone else, respond beautifully to praise, love and reward. By contrast, punishment creates only resentment and the motivation to not get caught. All the particulars flow from these simple truths. Even the most defiant and disrespectful children can quickly come around, if we simply pay a little more attention to connecting praise and rewards to desirable behavior, and withholding them for unwanted behavior.

Small children aged 3 to 8 typically do not participate in family therapy because the vast majority of therapists consider such children too young to articulate their feelings or understand complex patterns of behavior. Butler thinks otherwise, as she perfects her skills using an approach called narrative therapy. Often described as “post-modern,” narrative therapy allows clients to put away old, tired versions of the stories they tell themselves [and everybody else] about their lives. Playing more to the clients’ strengths than their weaknesses, the approach urges clients to see themselves as much more than the presenting problem and to identify ways in which they are already taking steps
