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 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.

Licensed Psychologist

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.

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.

Child Therapist

Matthew Drumm, MA, LPC-Intern

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

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.

Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor

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.
