Except for truly special needs children, I find most of the work I do helping a family with a young child will involve the family. It's very hard to hear from a therapist that you may have to adjust how things happen at home. What does some therapist know about that child you've been living with, you may find yourself resentfully wondering. But hang on, take a breath, and give it a try. Sometimes the simplest answers are all that's needed. By way of example, take a look at that British nanny currently on the reality show circuit; such simple solutions, and such dramatic changes. With more complex problems, make sure you've gotten a clear diagnosis. Too many children are misdiagnosed.

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.

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.

Child Therapist

Joanna Buset, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor, Specializing in Children & Adolescents

Within driving distance of Midland Park

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.

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.

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.
