Licensed Psychologist

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.

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.

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.

Licensed Professional Counselor

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).

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.

Audrey Kteily, Ph.D, LPC-S

Family Psychotherapist

In 75099 - Nearby to Grand Prairie.

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.

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.

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.

Young children learn and grow through play. I incorporate games, art, music, puppets, etc to help the children express themselves. Children don't have the language skills adults possess--they often express themselves through storytelling and pictures--building a trusting relationship with the child is the first step toward making them feel comfortable enough to share their story with me.

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.

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

In 75104 - Nearby to Grand Prairie.

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.
