Ellen Israel, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychologist

In 08540 - Nearby to Farmingdale.

I specialize in the socio-emotional health of infants and young children. Parent, child mental health services address early signs of distress and support the parent's role, the unfolding parent/child relationship and the child's development. Healthy social emotional development is the foundation of early childhood mental health and develops within the relationship with the primary caregiver(s). Successful early relationships create a foundation for trust, self-worth, long-term social-emotional health and the capacity to learn and prosper in the school setting. I also provide child assessments and consultation for parents and educators in the creation of the optimal learning environment

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 07016 - Nearby to Farmingdale.

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.

Social Confidence Life Coach

In 10012 - Nearby to Farmingdale.

Is your child bullied or isolated from others? Is your child reluctant to go to school, has trouble making friends, or seems withdrawn and lonely? Many children have trouble with self confidence, anxiety or social skills. Improving self esteem, emotional regulation, and social skills deficits in the younger years reduces difficulties later. We all want the best for our children, and as a parent myself I know how it can hurt to watch your child suffer and not know how to help. Find out how your child can be helped by in-person counselling, online coaching, or online educational programs.

Many times, child therapists overdo the family system in their quest to seek effective solutions for emotional, learning or behavioral concerns with young children. And many times doctors overpathologize issues that shouldn’t be medicated necessarily. This leaves parents wondering what is the best route for their child? Introducing brainwave optimization technology. A fast, effective, natural, and less expensive way to allow your child's brain to make the optimizing changes it desires to make---on its own! Without any external force, opinion, medication, diagnostic, etc. Contact kevin@kevinflemingphd.com or 877-606-6161.

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.

Unwittingly, young children often become the center of conflict by appropriating the burdens of each family member and acting out the family issues. This leads to significantly disruptive behavior at school and home. The solution is to approach families, home life and school life as connected systems. Together, we can uncover and unpack the interwoven pressures and forces that shape our children in unhealthy ways to find positive alternatives to create peaceful and productive growth for everyone.

I enjoy providing counseling to young children, as the impact of intervention can have profound and meaningful developmental benefits.
