Working with young children is a challenge for many people because it involves speaking their "language" which often involves play, art and other expressive therapies. As a trained child and adolescent counselor, I have had experience working with children as young as three in the realm of expressive therapies to play out what is going on in their world and ways to cope with it.

Young children have very unique ways of managing and expressing feelings. Not only do they see the world in a different way than adults but they express their feelings and thoughts very differently than adults. Through counseling we can help you and your family identify the root cause if behaviors and give a safe place for your little one to talk, play and explore their feelings.

Donna Martino, LCPC, NCC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

Young children can often leave parents struggling to understand them and their behaviors. Many parents become frustrated and feel helpless when their children are acting out or struggling. I work with parents to help them understand what their child might be going through from a developmental perspective and provide parents with tools they can use to help improve their parenting relationship with their children. While some children may still need to see a child psychologist, many children show improvements with these changes and the parent child bond is strengthened.

Child Therapist

Tarah Galloway, LCPC, ATR

Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor, Registered Art Therapist

Within driving distance of Bolingbrook

I work with children ages 9 and up. Most kids struggle significantly because they don't fully understand what they're feeling or why. What's worse is that many children aren't equipped to cope with everything life throws at them. For many children, psychological issues such as anxiety or depression frequently manifest as behavioral issues (difficulty concentrating, impulsivity, physical aggression, self-injury, difficulty learning, frequent meltdowns, night terrors, etc.) or as physical symptoms (stomach aches, vomiting, insomnia, frequent diarrhea, headaches, body aches, etc.). I have 7 years of experience and specialized trainings in working with children. Let me help!

Child Therapist

Alicia Stalker-Gallichio, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Bolingbrook

I work with children as young as age four. In addition to family therapy, play therapy is the method I use to engage younger children on an individual basis. Younger children may have difficulty expressing their thoughts and feelings in words, but can express them through drawing, painting, storytelling, games, as well as symbolic play with puppets, dolls, etc. Play therapy activities depend on the child's developmental age and the therapy goals. Although I nearly always use play therapy techniques with younger children, play therapy may also be appropriate with many older children.

I can work with children who are verbal from 6 or 7 and up. I can also treat them with EMDR. When I work with a young child, I insist that the parents see me seperately at least once to get a feel for the dynamics of the family and if there have been any losses, or traumas in the family. Having rased children myself I know how to help children feel "safe"and comfortable with me.

Children face many challenges today that can seem overwhelming. Often they have difficulty expressing their feelings properly and/or managing their behavior. As a family specialist, I employ a variety of child-friendly strategies to help children learn how to confront their challenges and exercise control over their thoughts, feelings and behavior. I am a contributing author on the subject of play therapy in two clinical books and have a playroom filled with puppets, arts, sand tray, an imaginative games that provide a means for children to engage in counseling as a positive experience.

Families play an important role in children’s healing processes. The interaction between children’s problems and their families is always complex. Sometimes children develop problems as a way of signaling that there is something wrong in the family. Other times the entire family becomes distressed because the child’s problems are so disruptive. In all cases, children and families heal faster when they work together. The play therapist will make some decisions about how and when to involve some or all members of the family in the play therapy. At a minimum, the therapist will want to communicate regularly with the child’s caretakers to develop a plan for resolving problems as they are identified and to monitor the progress of the treatment. Other options...(view profile to read more)

Raising a child can be challenging! As parents, we experience a broad range of emotions when parenting our children - these can be anything from elation, pride and joy to anger, frustration and outright bafflement. Parenting is like being on a roller-coaster, there are plenty of highs and lows and no way of getting off until the end! As parents, we all understand and accept that with patience, good discipline and consistency, those difficult moments or phases will pass and will serve as an important learning opportunity for our children moving forward. Sometimes, however, those phases seem to have no end, and our children get stuck in a pattern of destructive behaviors. Let us help!
