Elizabeth Ossip, MSW, LCSW, CAP, ICADC

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 33487 - Nearby to Lake Clarke Shores.

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. Please call for an appointment now....

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.

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 Marriage & Family Therapist

In 33401 - Nearby to Lake Clarke Shores.

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.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Mental Health Counselor

In 33477 - Nearby to Lake Clarke Shores.

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.

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.

Young children have their own unique set is struggles. Sometimes it can be with peers in school. Sometimes it can be family issues. Sometimes it can be self-esteem or feelings of anxiety or fears. Children need a special approach which incorporates play therapy techniques. I offer shorter sessions for younger children and 20 years of experience of being a mom as well. My approach has proven helpful in assisting children on getting things back on track and experiencing positive feelings.

LMFT Diplomate, Certified of Anger management

In 33431 - Nearby to Lake Clarke Shores.

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

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.

Licensed Mental Health Counselor

I provide counseling services to children ages ten and up. I have worked with teens in addiction treatment centers. Working with children and teens who have experienced trauma I find the use of Sandtray therapy useful in helping to breakdown the walls. When vocalizing the trauma is difficult, the sensory approach has proven to be most useful. I work with teens whose parents are divorcing, and with teens who are changing schools, or going off to college and are experiencing difficult with the changes.
