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

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.

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....

One of the things that makes our practice special is that we use the whole family as part of the process to help young children reach their goals. We have found that the outcome is faster and more successful when more members are involved to help the child reach his or her goals. We provide a relaxed and comfortable environment for children and their families to explore their issues and work together towards a more happy life.

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.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Registered Art Therapist

In 33065 - Nearby to Lauderhill.

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.

Margie Mader, LMFT, C.Ht.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, National Board Certified Hypnotherapist

In 33309 - Nearby to Lauderhill.

I believe children are very intelligent and know exactly what they need, but they often don't know how to communicate that. As a result, they may act out or in, create unhealthy symptoms, and begin to feel all alone. Through play therapy, I help children find their voice, learn to express feelings and identify needs appropriately, and learn healthy coping skills. I also work with the family, to set boundaries that support their child/children in the growth and progress they are making. As the child changes, so does the family. Growth happens with everyone, and life is never the same.

Young children are very special. They express themselves in unique ways...often by acting out. This is important to remember. I incorporate play therapy into sessions as well as listening and validation. Parents always benefit from therpy in tandem with their child. ADHD is very common, and I am able to refer clients to a competent psychiatrist if they are interested in combining medication with therpy. I have many years of dealing with children suffering from Oppostitional Defiant Disorder. They importance of setting boundaries and incorporating consistency are only some of the things I work on with these children/families. I am able to refer children for intelligence testing as well

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.
