Child Therapist

John Kuna, Psy.D.

Licensed Psychologist

41 Main Street, Suite 309, Carbondale, Pennsylvania

Similar to adult therapy, our therapy for young children is individually based. Our staff is specifically trained and certified for several forms of child therapy including play and art therapy techniques. Our relaxed and comfortable approach focuses on the child's strengths. This approach may often have the added benefit of increased self esteem in children, due to their increased self-awareness.

Child Therapist

David Palmiter, Ph.D., ABPP

Clinical Psychcologist

304 Royal Oaks Drive, Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania

Understanding and helping kids, parents and families is an area of specialization for me. Actually, I've written two books and multiple articles on this topic, taken a leadership role in developing mental health evaluation standards for kids in the state, given hundreds of workshops on doing this sort of work and do ongoing public education on kid and parenting topics (e.g., a blog at hecticparents.com and a weekly live parenting spot on WBRE-TV's PALive). Should you bring your child to me I promise to treat him or her as I would want one of my own kids treated and to be tireless in my efforts to understand, heal and advance the wellness of your child.
