One of the most useful tools that I use in working with young children and their parents are behavior modification plans or also known as token economy. Behavior modification plans can be implemented with various problem areas a child may be facing. Some problem areas could be motivation, hygeine, ADHD, and defiance. These are to name only a few. I work closely with the family and child to see a productive outcome.

I work with children ages 5 and above. I work with understanding the parents' concern about the presenting issue/s. I get the child's voice into the therapy session to explore understanding for therapy and develop goals. After therapeutic needs assessments, and establishing goals. I utilize either CBT or Solution Focused Brief Therapy along with art or play therapy. I will include family sessions, as I belief that changes are not only needed in the individual client, but in the family system.

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.

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.

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.

Child Therapist

Margie Mader, LMFT, C.Ht.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, National Board Certified Hypnotherapist

In 33309 - Nearby to Lighthouse Point.

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.

Children's way of communicating is through play. It is their natural way of expression. They may at times however, go through something that they do not know how to tell us. It could be difficulty with concentration, trouble with a peer at school or a sibling. Whatever it may be I can assist. Having extensive knowledge, experience and a play therapy specialty I can help children express and heal.

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.

Kathryn Doll, LCSW, MA, ATR

Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Registered Art Therapist

In 33065 - Nearby to Lighthouse Point.

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.

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.
