Art Therapy is a creative form of psychotherapy that differs from traditional talk therapy practices. Art Therapy helps people of all ages resolve conflicts, reduce stress, foster alternate perspectives and enhance well-being and connection (Malchiodi, 2003). Our licensed Art Psychotherapists infuse breathing techniques, guided imagery, and meditation with Art Therapy and evidence-based talk therapy modalities to support you. The process of art making allows room for growth, reconnection and self-acceptance. We provide all of the art materials for you and art making is always an option (but not mandatory).

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

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.

Parents are oftentimes spilling over with questions, frustration and even hopelessness when they bring their young son or daughter into treatment. Their own stress tolerance and understanding of what’s going on have long since been exceeded. As for child, he or she is almost always skeptical or even fearful about sharing his or her inner world with an outsider. Therapy aims to strengthen and augment the parents’ efforts in raising their child or adolescent, not replace it. Working together with the parent, our therapists establish themselves as a champion for their child and as a guide to aright their child’s development; they help to get it back on track.

Joanne Gerr, LCSW

Licensed Psychotherapist and Adult Educator

In 10017 - Nearby to Fort Lee.

Wise parents bring young children in for counseling for both preventative mental health, and early intervention before problems become entrenched. I work successfully with young children and their families with eating disorders, behavioral problems, attention deficit disorder, school avoidance and school phobia, difficulties with peers, siblings, and parental relationships. I also work with children challenged or frightened by medical symptoms and problems, and help families to learn strategies to cope and transform the challenges into experiences that lead to strength and family cohesiveness.

Child Therapist

Patricia Pitta, Ph.D., A.B.P.P.

Clinical and Board Certified Family Psychologist

In 11030 - Nearby to Fort Lee.

When a child is presented for treatment barring organic causes, the first question one asks, " Who has the problem?" Is it the child, parents, school or the interactions of all?" After interviewing the child and parents (conducted in both family and individual sessions), I present the parents with an evaluation. Dependent on the severity of the child's problems and the ability of the parents to mobilize their parenting skills, it is decided to address the presenting problems with individual sessions as well as family sessions. My attempt is to minimize the treatment of the child and enable the parents to learn to parent through "Creative Loving" (a program that Dr. PItta created).

Licensed Professional Counselor, Specializing in Children & Adolescents

In 07012 - Nearby to Fort Lee.

I love working with young children because I truly believe in the importance of early intervention. The earlier we address concerns, the more fully our children can blossom. I integrate a wide variety of techniques so that I can help children on numerous different levels. I believe in a comprehensive approach, and will teach you- the parent- how to better interact with your child as well. As a mother myself, I know how much each of us wants to "get it right"... but sometimes it can be hard to know what "right" is. I can help you match your parenting technique to your child's style, so that you can reduce household conflict and encourage positive coping skills and healthy self-confidence.

Licensed Psychologist

In 10013 - Nearby to Fort Lee.

I work with families with young children differently than some therapists. I firmly believe that the parents of the child are always the most powerful influencers of their own children. Children don't live in a vacuum. They live with you! The benefit you will have with me is that I work directly with you to help you be more effective in taking care of your child's social and emotional needs. Rather than assuming a stranger has more ability to help your child, respectfully guiding you empowers you as a parent.

Child Therapist

Gerald Schoenewolf, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychoanalyst

In 10003 - Nearby to Fort Lee.

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.
