Are you not sure why your child is not learning? Are they unmotivated or seem to be not performing to the best of their potential? Your child may have an undiagnosed learning disorder. Neuropsychological testing is the best avenue to discover why your child may not be performing well in school. The sooner parents can find out what is interfering with their child's learning, the sooner the child can have opportunities to improve academic performance.

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.

Children are still developing the higher-level thinking and language centers of their brain, so therapy looks a little different for them. They won't be sitting on a couch talking about their feelings, they will be communicating in their own language--by playing! At Transformational Choices our therapists work directly with children in an environment that allows children to be themselves and at ease. Our therapists are trained to create a safe environment where children are free to express themselves through different forms of play therapy.

I offer support to families and children, including those children who are struggling with identity issues, peer relationships, and family relationships. I offer limited play therapy services, and invite parent(s) to be engaged in a majority of sessions, if I believe it to be beneficial/therapeutic for the child. Additionally, I offer limited parent coaching.

Parents seek treatment for children for a variety of reasons. Some of those may be behavioral/emotional issues, changes within the family, and adjustment issues to name a few. I utilize a variety of techniques to connect with children and assist them in exploring their feelings becoming more responsible for behaviors, developing new solutions to problems, respect and acceptance of self and others.

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.

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.

Our time together is an opportunity to explore strengths, weaknesses, challenges, and desires. Together, we will work to process aspects of your life that may be causing discomfort, frustration, anxiety, depression, or even simply an overall feeling of being overwhelmed. With time and commitment, we can restore a sense of balance and personal confidence, even though it may feel like life is giving you the opposite. My hope for you is that you find security and optimism knowing that we each have the power from within to make each day a better day.

Children are very special people! I have worked for 23 years helping children to live a more satisfying life. Outside my office I've raised two into teen and adulthood. I've taught kids at my church for years, and I also am a Licensed School Counselor. Just 3 weeks ago I took on a 11-12 year old and we've already pushed through the most difficult part of treatment! Kids like the relaxed environment and the fact that I spell things out for them so they understand what we are trying to accomplish. I'd love to help your children work through the issues that keep them from achieving their goals. Give me a call and we'll start in a couple days!!!

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.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

I spent many years as a preschool teacher and I place great emphasis on the learnings that take place during the first 7 years of life. Parents and other parental figures have tremendous power to create a network of safe, challenging but supportive environments. When children are showing signs of emotional strain, I prefer to work with the adults to locate and address the sources of problems.

Treating children and families is a collaborative effort between all parties. Counseling can help children to gain insight and make changes in maladaptive thoughts and behaviors. Parents can be educated on how to best help their child overcome trauma, psychosocial issues and other mental health concerns. Working as a team we can address common childhood issues like anxiety, depression, agitation, ADHD, trauma, low self-esteem and abandonment. Each family will have a specific plan developed to facilitate reaching their goals.

Licensened Psychotherapist

In 48009 - Nearby to Linden.

Do you have young children you are worried about? Are you seeing mood, personality, and behavior, changes in your child? Are you going through a divorce or in early recovery from a divorce? Is your child struggling socially? Academically? Young children often lack the insight, or capacity, to understand their stressful circumstances, and so it is common to be able to observe their stress, such as acting out, or acting in (withdrawing into the self, as with depression and social anxiety). Therapy can help you to understand where your child is at developmentally, what the major tasks are at that age, and how and why your child may be struggling right now, and how you can help, now. Don't wait.
