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.

Great Lakes Psychology Group

In 48098 - Nearby to Wolverine Lake.

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.

Clinical Psychologist

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.

Counselor

In 48152 - Nearby to Wolverine Lake.

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 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.

Licensed Professional Counselor

In 48104 - Nearby to Wolverine Lake.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Grief Counselor & Thanatologist

In 48099 - Nearby to Wolverine Lake.

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 Professional Counselor

In 48326 - Nearby to Wolverine Lake.

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!!!

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.

Licensed Psychologist

In 48326 - Nearby to Wolverine Lake.

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.
