Jacqueline Santana Sparber, Psy.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

In 33030 - Nearby to Olympia Heights.

The psychologists at Keys Gate Wellness, are pediatric specialists. Many children are brought to our office because of recent changes in behavior (e.g. aggression, tearfulness, disobedience) and/or stressors in the environment (e.g. moving to a new place, bullying, divorce). Often, children are brought by the parent or guardian with feelings of resistance about doing therapy, and so building trust is the first step. Depending on your child’s needs, therapy may range from discussing their struggles (traditional talk therapy) to playing games or drawing (play therapy). We are also certified Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) providers. Call for your FREE 15 min. consultation!

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

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

While Dr. Weatherford does not do therapy, so to speak, with young children, she does offer NeurOptimal Neurofeedback training units for home use. Neurofeedback is biofeedback for the brain. It exercises and helps improve the functioning of the brain, calming it and improving its stability. It’s easy, and anyone can do it. The brain learns to increase certain brainwaves that are helpful for improved function. The American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry recommends Neurofeedback for Attention Deficits, Autism/Aspergers, Epilepsy, Head Injury, Anxiety, Trauma, Depression, Addictions, and Reading Disorders.

Children need to be heard and understood. If not given a voice they will hold their thoughts and feelings in and then burst in temper tantrums and or act out. Maybe severe anger or withdrawal, they do need help. We use play therapy as well as talk therapy. We bring parents and families together again. What ever it is remember we are as "sick as our secrets"! Lets help our children not be the isolators of tomorrow , but rather the leaders of the world. Let them have a voice.

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.

Counselor/Child, Adolescent and Family Psychotherapist

In 33156 - Nearby to Olympia Heights.

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.

Hanny Hausmann, MA, LMHC

Licensed Mental Health Counselor

In 33180 - Nearby to Olympia Heights.

I specialized in treating children, helping with behavioral issues, anxiety and depression, autism and developmental delays, social difficulties, divorce, parenting skills, abuse and neglect, trauma, etc. The treatment is customized to meet the child and family's needs and wishes. Because children do not have the same language abilities as adults, I use play therapy as a way to learn more about children's emotions and inner conflicts.
