Depending on the presenting problem of the child, some of the therapies we may use include behavioral therapy and play therapy. Behavior therapy can help teach parents a variety of skills that include: establishing rules, learning about positive reinforcement, using developmentally appropriate directions, planning ahead, and being consistent. We can train parents to use effective communication and other strategies to manage child’s behavior. Play therapy uses play to communicate with and help children to prevent or resolve psychosocial challenges. Play therapy can help children improve growth and development, emotional regulation, and trauma resolution.

Helping you find wholeness...

Within driving distance of East Hills

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.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

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.

NYS Licensed Clinical Psychologist

I have worked with children from birth to 17 years in various modalities including individual, group, parent-child, and multi-family group therapy. Many parents have concerns related to behavioral difficulties at home and/or at school. While my goal is to help improve these behaviors and provide the child with tools and coping skills so that they can make better behavioral choices, I also believe it is important to involve the parent as much as possible in the therapy, so that the parent can maintain their authority and respect. In addition, I believe that it is important to focus on the parent-child relationship, to ensure that there are positive and playful interactions.

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.

Clinical Psychologist

Having a troubled child can be very upsetting, whether the child seems worried, sad, angry, or oppositional. My work focuses on alleviating the child's suffering as well as helping the parent learn strategies to feel more effective in dealing with their child's problems. In helping young children, I usually work with the child (through talking therapy and/or play therapy,) the parent (through exploring behavioral and communication strategies) and the parent-child relationship (through assisting the family members to communicate better and collaborate on solutions to the problems.) My approach is eclectic and includes psychodynamic, behavioral and cognitive behavioral element

Child Therapist

Bennett Pologe, Ph.D.

Psychologist

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.

Donna Schinik, L.C.S.W.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within driving distance of East Hills

Often times children are struggling with issues in their own life and cannot communicate their need for help. It is a parent's job to recognize when something is not right. Helping children identify problems and work through them is a skill that lasts a lifetime. My work with children is based on trust. Only when they feel safe will they begin to reveal their inner thoughts and fears. This is achieved mainly through play therapy and parent child sessions.

My approach to working with young children is unique, because I believe that the child's dysfunction is reflection of an imbalance in the family system. Therefore, my work is with the parent(s) of the child in order to restore harmony in the family and peace for the child. Please feel free to call for my information!
