Licensed Professional Counselor

In 75104 - Nearby to Farmers Branch.

I see children five years old and up in my practice, and love helping them learn to see their potential and their innate gifts. I use directive play therapy to stimulate kids to think differently about their problems, cope with stress (including directions from authority figures) and enrich their inner lives. Teenagers will receive talk therapy, modified and tailored to their maturity level and challenges. Parenting consultations are an essential part of this process, so parents and caregivers can expect to be able to ask questions and get new parenting tools (and refinement of their existing ones).

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.

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.

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.

Renee Fromm, MA, LPC-S

Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor

In 75034 - Nearby to Farmers Branch.

Working with children is a specialty and must be treated in this way. Children are most commonly brought to therapy, not on their own motivation. I am able to build a rapport with children and help them understand the benefits of therapy. I am able to engage them in healing their hurts, or lessening their anxieties, or even empowering them to control their own behavior. I have built my life around working with and relating to children, and nothing gives me more pleasure than to watch them succeed and gain all that life has to offer.

Dr. Kteily takes a family systems approach when working with clients. She assesses not only the individual but the family as well as other environments the person is active in. This gives Dr. Kteily a complete picture of the person's life and where changes need to be made. Of course some topics require a sharper approach such as addiction, anxiety and panic, and depression. Dr. Kteily works closely with each individual's physicians to manage their symptoms while helping each person find the root cause and eradicate it.

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.

In 76201 - Nearby to Farmers Branch.

In Play Therapy a trained Play Therapist can establish a therapeutic relationship with your child. Through the use of play the counselor aids your child in learning how to express feelings, modify behavior, develop problem solving skills, and learn new ways of relating to others. The play therapy environment provides a safe emotional distance from the child's problems so that he or she can begin to develop appropriate expressions of thoughts and feelings. In the playroom the most troubling problems can be safely confronted and lasting resolutions can be discovered, rehearsed, and mastered.

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.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Licensed Professional Counselor

In 75093 - Nearby to Farmers Branch.

Young children frequently wrestle with their desire to feel as though they have some power in their world. When there are changes in a child's life, they may act out in an effort to feel as though they have a 'say' and address feelings of helplessness. This acting out behavior can take various forms, depending on their age and developmental stage. We will work on guiding your child by teaching them critical thinking skills, making good choices, expressing their emotions verbally versus via acting out, and feeling secure in their environment.

Licensed Psychologist

In 76120 - Nearby to Farmers Branch.

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 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.
