Children express their worries and concerns differently than adults do. It takes a specialized approach and skill-set to communicate and work effectively with them. I am a Registered Play Therapist with more than 25 years of experience working with children and parents. Through play therapy I help children learn to express themselves and develop the skills they need to overcome a variety of challenges. I work closely with parents to give them the tools they need to support and guide their child in a positive direction.

Children many times do not even know how they feel about their circumstances and often have difficulty communicating it. Even if they did know many times they won't share it with a parent out of fear. Therapy helps a child overcome difficult emotions, learn how to regulate them in a healthy way, and provides valuable feedback for the parents. There are specific tools used that provide a child the ability to express their feeling accurately.

Finding a therapist who can work with young children is a challenge. Our therapist, Fred Theobald, has experience helping children who are dealing with issues of depression, adjustment to changes, coping with divorce, behavior problems at home, and social skills. By providing a warm, gentle approach, children are more likely to open up about what their experience is. He integrates parents into the therapy, so that they know how to work with their children, rather than against them. Contact us today to set up an appointment with Fred.

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.

Child Therapist

Cynthia Orrego, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychologist

Within driving distance of Cockrell Hill

I specialize in the assessment and treatment of young children as well as adolescents. In working with children in therapy or as part of the evaluation process, I strive to provide a warm, caring and supportive environment. Building rapport and trust is as important as providing effective treatment approaches across different developmental stages. My experience in both educational and clinical settings, has helped me realize that when working with children one needs to implement a systems approach. Getting the family and school on board with treatment and working together as a team is the best way to make positive and lasting changes in children's lives.

Licensed Professional Counselor

Although adults often see them as carefree, young children face struggles and stresses on a daily basis. Whether your child is dealing with test anxiety, bullying, peer pressure, or something else common to children, he or she can benefit from counseling. Additionally, if a young child is undergoing a significant transition or change, such as divorce or a family member’s sickness or death, counseling can help tremendously. Like adults, children need opportunities to express themselves, feel understood, and learn techniques to cope with life and the challenges it presents.

Cheryl Rutherford, MA,NCC,LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Children are not equipped with adult words to help them express what is going on within their minds and hearts and lives. With more than half our marriages ending in divorce, kids these days are suffering in a huge way that is heartbreaking. Play therapy is all about giving children a safe place to "play out" their experiences, "act out" their anxiety and anger that they don't have the maturity to understand or communicate and learn coping skills to help them find peace in a chaotic world. A must for children who have experienced loss in any form in their lives or need appropriate empowerment to overcome bullying or other obstacles they encounter on a daily basis.

Child Therapist

Theresa Kellam, Ph.D., HSP

Licensed Psychologist

Within driving distance of Cockrell Hill

I'm very passionate about working with young children, especially using play therapy. Play is a child's language and toys are their words. Understanding children's play enables them to work on problems they don't have the worlds or cognitive abilities to share. In fact, I've written a book about it to help parents with their children's problems entitled "The Parent Survival Guide: from Chaos to Harmony in 10 Weeks or Less." You can find out more about it at www.specialplaytime.com. I also co-authored a book to train therapists how to work with parents.

Children's Counselor

Play therapy is the best therapeutic model for small children because it helps them: 1. Become more responsible for behaviors and develop more successful strategies. 2. Develop new and creative solutions to problems. 3. Develop respect and acceptance of self and others. 4. Learn to experience and express emotion. 5. Cultivate empathy and respect for thoughts and feelings of others. 6. Learn new social skills and relational skills with family. 7. Develop self-efficacy and thus a better assuredness about their abilities.

Licensed Psychologist

I specialize in the treatment of young children. My treatment approach varies depending on the child's needs. However, I am trained in play therapy, behavioral-based therapies, and parental training. One treatment model that I am trained in is Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT). PCIT aims to help improve the parent-child relationship through interaction. I help parents develop more effective parenting techniques and reduce behavior issues with the child.

Child Therapist

Matthew Drumm, MA, LPC-Intern

Professional Licensed Counselor-Intern, supervised by Heather Cawthon LPC-Supervisor

Within driving distance of Cockrell Hill

Young children can be the most challenging of all persons to get to open up and show you the truth of their world. It takes a truly well trained and dedicated person to work honestly and authentically for the child's benefit; not reading too much into and not missing details. I can utilize non-directive play therapy. I believe that small children communicate through play. I have experienced the healing that can felt by a child by showing a trusted adult via play, what is bothering them. Being part of the healing of Jesus' little lambs is my biggest privilege.

Working with young children in therapy is the challenge of language. Children do not have the therapeutic language to express their feelings. As a therapist working with young children, I use activities, unstructured play, games and observations. My job is to help translate that I'm learning into a positive and productive counseling session. Working with teens and pre-teens my focus is to explore social issues, family relationships, self image that's affecting their behavior. I spent many years working with at-risk youth with great success. I specially enjoy working with youth with a diagnosis of oppositional defiant disorder. Life skills counseling and coaching works well.
