I have many years of experience counseling children. As I do not currently treat children, I find it beneficial to provide parenting skills to patients that are struggling with at home challenges. I am here to offer tools and suggestions in dealing with daily issues and struggles. Children observe adults and may feed off of their behaviors. Becoming aware of your own communication patterns and behaviors may help increase the positivity in the home.

Licensed Mental Health Counselor, Registered Play Therapist

In 32819 - Nearby to Oviedo.

Children often struggles to come up with the words to express their wants, needs, thoughts, and feelings. My use of play therapy and sand tray therapy facilitates a way for children to express their feelings in a non-verbal way that gets results. I understand that play is essentially words for kids and can help them make sense of their word and what is going on in it. I have had success in helping numerous kids deal anxiety, depression, OCD, low self esteem, social pressures, bullying, divorce, and much more. It would be my honor to help your child too.

I have more than 10 years of experiencing working with children in many schools in Central Florida, such as Orange County Public Schools. I utilize play therapy when counseling small children. Sessions can be in English or Portuguese. If you are having behavior problems with your child/ children, therapy can help. I can be overwhelming to find a therapist, but you are not alone anymore.

Child Therapist

Bryan Truelove, LMHC

Licensed Mental Health Counselor

In 32801 - Nearby to Oviedo.

While I do not work exclusively with young children it has been my experience that often times the parents of children with special needs benefit greatly from seeking therapy for themselves. It can be challenging to raise children who have one or more diagnoses that interfere with their ability to learn, behave, or both. Taking time out to take care of yourself will help you be the best parent you can for your child. Family therapy may also be beneficial if there are other children in the home. Please contact me and we can discuss how individual or family counseling can help give you the strength, resilience, and patience your child needs..

Young children treatment interventions very often involve parents and caretakers at some point. Disruptive Behavior Problems are most prevalent, specifically Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD) and Conduct Disorder (CD), however fear, anxiety social issues also rank highly. In my practice, I use behavior therapy (parent management training), both individual and group cognitive behavioral therapy as well as multisystemic therapy. MST is goal-oriented and focuses on helping the caregivers manage and nurture their challenging children more effectively. As your child's therapist I become intimately involved in every aspect of their life and social network including peers, school and family.

Licensed Mental Health Counselor

Children are such a blessing! Children have a way of dealing with life issues different from adults and a lot of times are very resilient. Counseling for children can range from difficulty in school, behavioral issues, parental divorce, loss of a loved one, etc.... The approach for counseling children is different from that of counseling adults. In counseling children the use of play is important and often times more effective than talking alone. Children might be asked to draw, use puppets, make scenes in a sand tray, or even play therapeutic board games with the counselor and a family member. Children will use the skills learned to help with future situations.

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 and Family Therapist

In 32714 - Nearby to Oviedo.

I work with children from age 4 and above using some play therapy and other age-appropriate interventions and coping skills to help with attention issues, social skills, anger management, defiance, discipline, and family issues, as well as anxiety or other mental health issues. Games, worksheets, and other age-appropriate tools are sometimes used to help learn skills and get the point across in a way that the child can understand.
