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

Maria Sue Butler, LMFT, Supervisor State Of Florida

LMFT Diplomate, Certified of Anger management

Within driving distance of Pinewood

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 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.

Licensed Mental Health Counselor, Certified Hypnotherapist

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.

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.

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 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.

Child Therapist

Mary Weatherford, Ph,D., MBA, Ed.S., CRC, BCN

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of Pinewood

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.

Child Therapist

Jennifer Spinner, LCSW, SAP

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within driving distance of Pinewood

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

Child Therapist

Margie Mader, LMFT, C.Ht.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, National Board Certified Hypnotherapist

Within driving distance of Pinewood

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.

Child Therapist

Counselor/Child, Adolescent and Family Psychotherapist

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.
