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.

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.

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.

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 Professional Counselor

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!!!

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.

I work with children 11 years and older. I think at this age fears and family systems are explored. It will take the family to be open and the child to be willing to explore emotions and feel safe. With play and art I find that kids can feel safe and not feel judged by emotional responses. I work with schools if I have to on behavioral plans. It is a collection of advice and behavioral standards for proper care.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

Child Therapist

Thomas Blume, Ph.D., LMFT, LPC

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Wolverine Lake

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.
