Family Psychotherapist

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.

Renee Fromm, MA, LPC-S

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.

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.

Tracy Crain, LPC-S, LCDC

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.

Child Therapist

Cynthia Orrego, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychologist

Within driving distance of The Colony

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

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.

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.

Finding a therapist who can work with young children is a challenge.

Child Therapist

Paul Myers, MA. LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

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.

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.
