Child Therapist

Richard Kneip, PhD

Great Lakes Psychology Group

89 W South Blvd Suite 200, Troy, Michigan

Great Lakes Psychology Group offers counseling to children and their parents for a wide variety of emotional, behavioral, and academic problems. And while children can and do benefit from counseling, they are not equipped in the same way as adults to talk, reflect, and problem-solve as they often lack the insight, awareness, and vocabularies necessary to take full advantage of psychotherapy. Therapists have at their disposal a host of methods developed to meet the unique counseling needs of children, perhaps foremost among them being play therapy. Play therapy is used because it reaches all kinds of children despite their differences.

Licensed Professional Counselor

2888 East Long lake, Suite # 170, {Oakland and Macomb County}, Troy, Michigan

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!!!

Are your children/teens displaying behaviors that may be of concern to you? Have you been "stuck" with a situation that you are struggling to overcome? Is your child struggling with anxiety, depression, school problems, or emotional issues due to the loss of a loved one, cyber-bullying, trauma or divorce? I have worked in Education K-12, for 15 years helping parents and their children overcome many difficulties in life and improve academic success.

Children often times need to express their feelings through a concrete methodology, so that they can release what is going on inside of them. Through play therapy, a child can address the many emotions and help identify them, so that the release of negative emotions do not cause them undo stress. Parents are wise to address the issues early on, so that the child can function as their true self. My guidance, through the process of child therapy, can help parents become skilled in communicating with their young child, so that attachment to parents has a solid foundation.

Child Therapist

Thomas Bruno, LLP

Specialist in Clinical Pyschology

43200 Dequindre Rd., Suite 108, Sterling Heights, Michigan

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.
