“The days are long but the years are short” is my favorite quote when describing the life of a parent. Being a parent can be rewarding, but usually comes with it challenges. As a mental health counselor in a school environment for 6 years, I helped pre-teens and young adults navigate bullying, anxiety, depression, academic techniques, career development and college preparation, and relationship issues (family and peers). I work with individuals 11 and older using talk therapy while integrating structured activities. As you spend much more time with your child then the 60 minutes I do in session, a primary focus is strengthening the child and parent relationship and involving parents in the counseling process.

I work with preschool aged children, as young as 3 years old. I support my young clients in learning to calm their feelings, make appropriate choices with their behavior, improve social skills and explore trauma, anger, anxiety, fear and loss; all through play. Play therapy is driven by the child's choices and needs and is very effective in helping children to improve in many areas of their lives. I often include parents in the last 15 minutes of the session for filial (family) play to strengthen the child-parent relationship and provide an additional layer of support. It is fun for everyone!

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

Joanne Gerr, LCSW

Licensed Psychotherapist and Adult Educator

Within driving distance of Yorketown

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

Michael Barmak, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within driving distance of Yorketown

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.

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.

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
