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.

Karen LeVasseur, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

514 Main Street, Bradley Beach, New Jersey 07720

I work with preschool aged children, as young as 3 years old. I support my young clients in learning to calm their feelings, make appropriate choices with their behavior, improve social skills and explore trauma, anger, anxiety, fear and loss; all through play. Play therapy is driven by the child's choices and needs and is very effective in helping children to improve in many areas of their lives. I often include parents in the last 15 minutes of the session for filial (family) play to strengthen the child-parent relationship and provide an additional layer of support. It is fun for everyone!

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.

Daniel Minuchin, LMFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

280 Madison Avenue, Suite 208, New York, New York 11231

I am a family therapist. I work with young children, but when I do, I work with the whole family. My experience is both that when young children are having problems it is often related to family issues, and that with young children it is important for their parents to be the people who are learning to help them with their issues on an ongoing basis. As a family therapist I would say that there are some sorts of issues where individual therapy makes sense for a 14 year old, but I don't think that individual therapy makes sense for a 5 year old or a 7 year old.

Suzi Sena, EdS, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

365 Park Avenue, Scotch Plains, New Jersey 07076

“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.

Steven Sussman, Ph.D

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.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

New York City, New York 10013

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.

Gerald Schoenewolf, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychoanalyst

207 East 15th Street, New York, New York 10003

When children have problems, those problems are directly related to their relationship with their parents. Hence, my approach to working with children is to work with the whole family. If a child is acting up at school, he generally has parents who are, often unintentionally, not giving him what he needs at home. All parents want to believe that they are good parents, and it is hard for them to accept that they may be doing things that are causing their children to have problems. My job is to gently and patiently create a constructive atmosphere and honest communication between parents and children, which help the children resolve their problems and learn to thrive.

Rev. Christopher Smith, LCAC, LMHC, LMFT

Helping you find wholeness...

124 East 40th Street, Ste 404, New York, New York 10016

Young children are not little adults but yet they are whole people. Children process things differently but also exhibit good resilience in many situations. In working with young children, it is especially important to work with them where they are at and in ways that allow them to relate tot he journey that is being made. When this is successful, the child not only is able to find wholeness and peace in the present but have a firm foundation for finding this in the future. A dimension of working with a child is working with the adults that are significant in that child's life. Christopher looks forward to this journety together with you.

Joan Warren, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

280 Madison Avenue Suite 208, New York City, New York 10016

As a licensed family therapist, a former elementary school teacher and having raised a family, I have devotion and experience in addressing the needs of children. When parents contact me to provide therapy or anger management for their young children, I respond by bringing the parent or family into treatment as well. While I provide therapy for teens as individuals, I provide parenting skill therapy, explore educational concerns and offer family counseling as treatment to address the child's issues.
