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.

Dawn Nelson, LCSW-S, ACSW, SAP, CART

Licensed Clinical Social Worker-Supervisor, Certified Anger Resolution Therapist, Substance Abuse Professional

In 75087 - Nearby to Leonard.

With a Specialization in Children and Families, I understand that children work through problems the best by using play therapy. Sitting on a big couch like an adult does not work well with a child. Instead, we sit on the floor and play age-appropriate cards or board games. With their hands busy, they can express their concerns in a way that reduces anxiety and enable the child to learn new ways of coping with the problem. I communicate with parents so they understand the child's perspective and how they can help at home or school.

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.

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.

Cynthia Orrego, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychologist

In 75074 - Nearby to Leonard.

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.
