Child Therapist

Angela McDowell, MS, LCPC, NCC, CADC

Private Practice Counselor

Within driving distance of Pontoon Beach

I work with children over the age of 5, typically elementary school and above. General concerns that initiate services include experiencing bullying, family conflict (divorce, separation), addicition issues in the family, grief and loss, depression, and occasionally acting out behaviors. I do have some "kid friendly" resources to generate discussion at their level and keep a basket of toys to ease their comfort level. Many times a parent or grandparent sits in session until the child expresses comfort and trust at being in my office on their own with me.To ask questions or schedule an appointment, contact Angela McDowell.

Child Therapist

Katie Kibort, MA, LCPC, NCC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of Pontoon Beach

Utilizing play therapy techniques and cognitive behavioral therapy techniques, I assist young children in learning impulse control, how to anticipate consequences, how to understand and express their own feelings and good problem-solving techniques. Learning all of these skills helps children have positive relationships with peers and family, resulting in positive experiences at home and school.
