Deborah Cole, Psy.D.

Licensed Psychologist

In 21045 - Nearby to Frederick.

I have seen at least 1000 children and adolescents. Each one is different! Many have had learning disabilities, and many have had Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Some have had Trichtoillomania (compulsive hair pulling), or Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) or Tourettes. With these a behavior therapy approach has been most useful. For younger children, I use play therapy as well as parent consultations. Parents need to be involved but they also usually need to allow the child to talk freely. for play therapy, I use puppets and/or drawing activities at the little table and chairs in my office. I might need to assess the child formally to determine any learning problems.

Insight Into Action Therapy

When a young child is struggling, the whole family is affected. Treating young children requires a unique approach as they are often unable to express their feelings in words. Play therapy provides these young clients with an opportunity for self-expression that is natural and comfortable for them. I am then able to use information gathered from these play sessions to provide feedback to the child’s parents and help the family unit to thrive.

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!
