Michael Barmak, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

347 Lincoln Avenue East, Cranford, New Jersey 07016

I help with children as young as nine years old learn how to feel their feelings and take personal responsibility for them rather than make others responsible for how they feel. And then how to manage, communicate and release their feelings appropriately. I also help children build higher self worth, be more compassionate with themselves and learn how to make better choices.

“The days are long but the years are short” is my favorite quote when describing the life of a parent. Being a parent can be rewarding, but usually comes with it challenges. As a mental health counselor in a school environment for 6 years, I helped pre-teens and young adults navigate bullying, anxiety, depression, academic techniques, career development and college preparation, and relationship issues (family and peers). I work with individuals 11 and older using talk therapy while integrating structured activities. As you spend much more time with your child then the 60 minutes I do in session, a primary focus is strengthening the child and parent relationship and involving parents in the counseling process.

Licensed NJ & NY Psychologist

615 Sherwood Pkwy, Mountainside, NJ, New Jersey 07092

Young children in particular need to feel safe and have fun to be interested in psychotherapy. If not, they do not relax and open up. Instead, they spend their sessions avoiding and denying their problems. Often, the therapist and parent spend wasted time pleading, prodding, and cajoling the child to participate in an honest thoughtful manner. My child-friendly methods are purposely compelling to young children. Many are so excited to come to therapy they run up the stairs and and through the hallway to my office; necessitating me to accommodate other tenants by posting signs discouraging such behavior.

Joanne Gerr, LCSW

Licensed Psychotherapist and Adult Educator

324 Raritan Avenue, Suite 111, Highland Park, New Jersey 08904

Wise parents bring young children in for counseling for both preventative mental health, and early intervention before problems become entrenched. I work successfully with young children and their families with eating disorders, behavioral problems, attention deficit disorder, school avoidance and school phobia, difficulties with peers, siblings, and parental relationships. I also work with children challenged or frightened by medical symptoms and problems, and help families to learn strategies to cope and transform the challenges into experiences that lead to strength and family cohesiveness.

Rebecca Logunovskiy, MA, LPC, LMHC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Livingston, New Jersey 07039

My first approach to working with a young child, is to work on establishing a trusting relationship with them. I like to bring both art and play therapy into sessions, as a way to help the child feel more comfortable, but to also allow them to express their feelings in a non-verbal manner. Therapy is traditionally not an easy process, but with the right approach, therapy can we an enjoyable and safe place that a child looks forward to attending.

Licensed Psychologist

236 West High Street, Bound Brook, New Jersey 08805

Children, particularly young children, often do not have the ability to express how they feel in words and as a result, express their feelings through behavior-often inappropriate or undesirable behavior such as hitting, defiance, school refusal, and more. Power struggles over homework, getting up on time for school, complying with parental requests are also common problems of children today. Anxious children frequently complain of stomach aches, dizzy spells, and headaches. Working closely with the child and the child's parents, I implement child behavioral techniques and provide the parents' with tools to successfully manage their child's behavior as well as resolve any emotional distress
