Child Therapist

Maria Sue Butler, LMFT, Supervisor State Of Florida

LMFT Diplomate, Certified of Anger management

Within driving distance of Clark

Small children aged 3 to 8 typically do not participate in family therapy because the vast majority of therapists consider such children too young to articulate their feelings or understand complex patterns of behavior. Butler thinks otherwise, as she perfects her skills using an approach called narrative therapy. Often described as “post-modern,” narrative therapy allows clients to put away old, tired versions of the stories they tell themselves [and everybody else] about their lives. Playing more to the clients’ strengths than their weaknesses, the approach urges clients to see themselves as much more than the presenting problem and to identify ways in which they are already taking steps

Child Therapist

Marion Rollings, PhD

Licensed Psychologist

Within driving distance of Clark

Children, particularly young children, often do not have the ability to express how they feel in words and as a result, express their feelings through behavior-often inappropriate or undesirable behavior such as hitting, defiance, school refusal, and more. Power struggles over homework, getting up on time for school, complying with parental requests are also common problems of children today. Anxious children frequently complain of stomach aches, dizzy spells, and headaches. Working closely with the child and the child's parents, I implement child behavioral techniques and provide the parents' with tools to successfully manage their child's behavior as well as resolve any emotional distress

Child Therapist

Gerald Schoenewolf, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychoanalyst

When children have problems, those problems are directly related to their relationship with their parents. Hence, my approach to working with children is to work with the whole family. If a child is acting up at school, he generally has parents who are, often unintentionally, not giving him what he needs at home. All parents want to believe that they are good parents, and it is hard for them to accept that they may be doing things that are causing their children to have problems. My job is to gently and patiently create a constructive atmosphere and honest communication between parents and children, which help the children resolve their problems and learn to thrive.

Child Therapist

Michael Barmak, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within driving distance of Clark

I help with children as young as nine years old learn how to feel their feelings and take personal responsibility for them rather than make others responsible for how they feel. And then how to manage, communicate and release their feelings appropriately. I also help children build higher self worth, be more compassionate with themselves and learn how to make better choices.

Child Therapist

Daniel Minuchin, LMFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Clark

I am a family therapist. I work with young children, but when I do, I work with the whole family. My experience is both that when young children are having problems it is often related to family issues, and that with young children it is important for their parents to be the people who are learning to help them with their issues on an ongoing basis. As a family therapist I would say that there are some sorts of issues where individual therapy makes sense for a 14 year old, but I don't think that individual therapy makes sense for a 5 year old or a 7 year old.

New York Behavioral Health

Within driving distance of Clark

We have four clinicians who specialize in children and adolescents. Anger, anxiety, school refusal, trauma, OCD, performance anxiety, social anxiety, separation anxiety, defiance, eating disorders, and even depression and self-injury are all areas of focus in our work with children. Our clinicians are well trained and understand how critical effective intervention as early as possible is, since children are forming behavioral patterns, relationships, and personality traits. We also understand how important the role of the parents and the entire family can be in supporting a child to change. Likewise, we recognize how much the entire family can benefit from experiencing the child's growth.

Child Therapist

Rev. Christopher Smith, LCAC, LMHC, LMFT

Helping you find wholeness...

Within driving distance of Clark

Young children are not little adults but yet they are whole people. Children process things differently but also exhibit good resilience in many situations. In working with young children, it is especially important to work with them where they are at and in ways that allow them to relate tot he journey that is being made. When this is successful, the child not only is able to find wholeness and peace in the present but have a firm foundation for finding this in the future. A dimension of working with a child is working with the adults that are significant in that child's life. Christopher looks forward to this journety together with you.

As a licensed family therapist, a former elementary school teacher and having raised a family, I have devotion and experience in addressing the needs of children. When parents contact me to provide therapy or anger management for their young children, I respond by bringing the parent or family into treatment as well. While I provide therapy for teens as individuals, I provide parenting skill therapy, explore educational concerns and offer family counseling as treatment to address the child's issues.

Psychologist

Being a new parent is often spoken of as if the main ingredient is joy, but this glosses over the complexities that women and men feel as they adjust to their roles as parents. More often than people would like to admit, the experience is trying and frustrating for mothers and fathers alike. Whether this is your first child, or your second or third time around, I can help you to get through the rough spots to the place we all want to be—confident, relaxed, in tune with your young ones, and in a stronger, more supportive alliance with your partner in childrearing.
