Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, Licensed Mental Health

Within driving distance of Elfers

As a parent and grandparent, I have a special place in my heart for helping children. Most of my work with children is done in conjunction with their parents or guardians. A combination of play therapy, expressive therapies and solution-focused brief therapy is helpful with a wide range of children's issues. For school-age children and teens, techniques such as CBT and mindfulness training, which their grownups can also learn to use so they can be helpful coaches for their children, are also great tools. Behavior problems, grief, adjustment to life changes like divorce or remarriage, anxiety or depression, are all areas where children can benefit from help and support. Please call today!

Child Therapist

Tom Petit, Ph.D., LMHC, CCMHC, CAP

Licensed Mental Health Counselors / Board Certified Coaches

Stress, pressure, chaos, bullying - children are deeply affected by realities way beyond their control or ability to manage or understand. The effects of family tensions, strife, discord and conflict can manifest in physically, emotionally and behaviorally. A tummy ache, difficulty sleeping, acting out, more anxiety or anger than normal are all signs that a child is experiencing more stress than they can handle. Using age-appropriate language and therapies, I provide immediate symptom relief that helps the child and the parent understand what is causing the symptoms and what to do about them in 1 to 3 sessions.

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

Alicia Eddy, Ed.M, M.A.

Licensed Mental Health Counselor

Within driving distance of Elfers

I provide therapeutic services to children struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma, behavioral issues, and/or ADHD. Children often display behavioral issues at school or home when they are experiencing negative feelings such as sadness, fear, or anger. When working with children, I use art, sand-tray, and play therapy techniques to help them express feelings, learn positive communication skills, and positive social behaviors. Parents play a vital role in the therapeutic process by learning new parenting skills and positive communication skills to help support their child through their difficulties.
