Susan Gross, PsyD, LP, ICAADC

Licensed Clinical Psychologist, Interventionist

In 48009 - Nearby to Bingham Farms.

I am an experienced interventionist with IMMEDIATE RESPONSE for parents and families in crisis. I am skilled at untangling chaos and helping 10-17 years olds get the treatment they need to regulate anger and comply with boundaries. If your child is experiencing problems and “acting out” with friends, family or school, if your child has experienced trauma or truancy...I can restore hope, take compassionate action and get you and your child safety and support. “I can finally breathe and if I fall, I know you will be there to catch me!” (A mother of a suicidal 14 y/o, who was using drugs to numb pain and failing school.) Please don’t wait.

Children often express their experiences and feelings through play, and this becomes an important tool for learning about themselves and others. Children often express and resolve inner conflicts through their play. The therapist helps the child to express and understand the world through play activities - sometimes acting out conflicts and feelings, then interpreting (as appropriate to age) how a similar issue or feeling is present in the child's life.

Counselor

I counsel children as young as 6 years old. We play games, or drawing on the whiteboard to begin developing a therapeutic relationship. Everyone needs to be comfortable with their counselor before they can begin to open up. Children are no exception. When children do begin to open up, most are asking when they can come back. Developing a relationship takes a little longer with children than with adults, but it's well worth the slight delay.

Licensed Professional Counselor; Grief Counselor & Thanatologist

All people are spiritual. Spirituality is different for all of us, but it is the common or central starting point for all of us when we face the tougher side of life. It is no different for children. Children are also very spiritual. Through their interesting viewpoints and their endless questions spark us to struggle, search and even connect. Children are profoundly spiritual and we need to listen to them. In their own way children often grasp things much faster and precisely than adults do and can give us much comfort and care. In working with children my approach is to explore their understanding of grief and spirituality. The spiritual markers on grief’s journeys, “typical” expression....

Licensed Psychologist

Children need a solid, constant source of care. Therapy can help the child express their emotions and deal with any disorder(s) they may have. It also brings the issues to the attention of the parents so they can better deal with the situation and make more time for their child. If you are not able to help, a therapist can be very effective at finding out what is troubling your child and help them deal with their emotions.

Child Therapist

Thomas Bruno, LLP

Specialist in Clinical Pyschology

In 48314 - Nearby to Bingham Farms.

On occasion, I do see young children of clients that I counsel. These sessions are usually with the parent or parents present. This is when I have them draw a picture of their house and tell where their room is. If a child is upset about something happening in his/her life, they may act out in anger. Allowing the child or children to express their feelings without penalty is important. However, if it is a deeper problem that cannot be fixed within a few sessions, I refer them to someone who specializes in young children.

Alexander Dixon, LMSW
Child Therapist

Alexander Dixon, LMSW

Licensed Master Social Worker

In 48152 - Nearby to Bingham Farms.

Depending on the age the child, my approach to working with young children is to foster a therapeutic alliance beginning in the first session and implement play therapy into our therapy work early on. This ensures that engagement and interaction with the child is being created during the first impression. Play therapy is an effective tool in developing a relationship with the child and maintaining one. It is also a great way to communicate with children since one form of communication children use is through play.

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.

Child Therapist

Licensced Clincal and Macro Social Worker, Social Work Ethics Consultant, Educator, and Author

In 48334 - Nearby to Bingham Farms.

My approach to counseling with children is to work collaboratively with the parents. counseling with children is part of a family systems approach. Children do not develop struggles in a vacuum so working with the parents and the rest of the family as needed is of added benefit to the child in therapy, regardless of the age of the minor child involved. Therapy may be weekly or every other week, as needed and determined when we develop the treatment plan.
