Child Therapist

Carolyn Harkin-Brinton, MSW

Psychotherapist

Within driving distance of Shelbyville

I specialize in providing therapy to children and adolescents to manage behavioral issues, learn compensatory skills for ADHD, decrease aggression, eliminate self-harm, manage mood swings, decrease anxiety, and process changes like death, divorce, and blending families. I use a variety of play therapies and family support to assist your child with learning to deal with emotions in healthy ways and encouraging their identity development. I work with children as young as toddlers to support adoption attachment or provide parenting support for early onset of behavior issues. I have extensive experience helping tweens and teens exhibiting risky behavior, cutting, and suicidal thoughts.

Child Therapist

Steph Troyer Williams, LMHC

Licensed Mental Health Counselor

Within driving distance of Shelbyville

I have worked with clients as young as 3. Play therapy is a huge part of the counseling process for young children. My office has many toys, games, and art supplies available to help children feel comfortable and also to help them express themselves when they can't quite find the words to do so. My goal is to make children feel welcome and at home to help them and their family in the best way possible.

Child Therapist

Tom Valek, LMHC

Licensed Mental Health Therapist

Within driving distance of Shelbyville

I use a combination of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Play Therapy when working with young children to help them address many issues. Play therapy helps children to feel safe and comfortable to express and work on issues that are challenging them. I use CBT to help children learn how to address faulty thinking about themselves and others and to learn effective ways to cope with negative feelings and situations. I also use solution focused approaches to help children address issues such as ADHD. Social skills training may also be a component for children who struggle to make friends or to get along well at school. My goal is to help children to be happier.

As the lyrics of a well know song acknowledges, children often have no familial voice with regard to their welfare and well-being. They are, to a great extent, dependent upon their caregivers for their emotional, relational and spiritual needs. At Chrysalis Connections Counseling and Training Center we recognize the special challenges children face and make every effort to honor and lift up the needs and wishes of our smallest clients. Giving our young clients a voice in the family process ensures a more complete family therapy experience and reduces the chance that these sometimes unheard voices will seek more definitive methods of being seen and heard.
