Jemma Coleman, M. Ed., Ed. S., LMFT, LMHC

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Mental Health Counselor

In 33477 - Nearby to Royal Palm Beach.

When dealing with young children and their issues, parents often find themselves at a loss. After all, having a baby doesn't mean you get an instructions manual! Even if you're a parent who reads all the self-help books, you may still find it discouraging and start to lose steam, wondering if these suggestions are really going to work. When working with the issues of young children, I focus on helping you as parents learn the most effective ways to interact with your child, so that you can help them to grow into emotionally intelligent adults. Emotional intelligence is our ability to read other people’s signals and react appropriately to them and influences our chances for success in life.

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

In 33401 - Nearby to Royal Palm Beach.

As a marriage and family therapist, I see the innocence of a child as the foundation for well-being. I work with the child's strengths in the context of family, school, friends, divorce, abuse, and other situations which may impact the emotional health of the child. Everything is in relationship to other forms of behavior. We derive a fuller understanding of these relational patterns from a brief comparison of other scenarios. Looking at the bigger picture can lead to a happier story ending.

Outpatient Substance Abuse & Co-Occurring Counseling

In 33463 - Nearby to Royal Palm Beach.

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.

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.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 33487 - Nearby to Royal Palm Beach.

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. Please call for an appointment now....

LMFT Diplomate, Certified of Anger management

In 33431 - Nearby to Royal Palm 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

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.
