Child Therapist

Maria Sue Butler, LMFT, Supervisor State Of Florida

LMFT Diplomate, Certified of Anger management

Within driving distance of North Miami Beach

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

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.

Child Therapist

Kathryn Doll, LCSW, MA, ATR

Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Registered Art Therapist

Within driving distance of North Miami Beach

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.

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

Play is an important part of growing up and learning, especially for children. Play therapy with small children provides them with the opportunity of learning to express feelings, trying out new coping mechanisms and adaptive behaviors. some children may have experienced trauma and helping them express, rather than analyze their experiences surrounding themes of anger, fear, sadness, etc. using a variety of interventions may help them free themselves from disturbing memories and maladaptive coping

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.

Child Therapist

Remy Nelson, M.Ed., M.Div, NCC, CCMHC

Licensed Mental Health Counselor

Within driving distance of North Miami Beach

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.

Children are assimilating life and family values during a digital age. It is an age where the speed of technology and the subliminal messages surrounding them has had a direct impact on their overall formation, thus their relationships. Counseling sessions provide an opportunity for children to disclose their feelings and their opinions about the stress of school, the stress of managing daily schedules and the stress of managing their overall emotions. We work with children to teach them to cope with daily challenges. We also work with the families so they continue to be their child's healthy support.
