Maria Russell, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Salisbury, North Carolina 28146

Directive and non-directive play therapy are the two main ways I work with children in therapy. I use art, sand, toys and games to help children feel safe in the counseling environment. Children express themselves through play, using their imaginations to share with the therapist their thoughts and feelings. Working with young children also heavily involves the parents, teaching them new skills that help with behavior modification.

I have worked extensively with children for over 19 years. I am proud to be a nationally certified Parents as Teachers educator that enhances my interactions with the child and parent. I have been fortunate to work with children who are aggressive, cast aside and misunderstood. I am certified to work with children with inappropriate sexual behaviors and proud to serve that population. I approach dealing with children with a great deal of joy that makes them feel non-judged and important. I treat children from ages 3-18.

Do you have a young child that is struggling in school or at home? Do you need some practical advice with parenting? Young children learn through play and art. They do not learn by being lectured and they cannot be reasoned with. They learn through their environment and pick up on bad habits and good ones too. Please give me call so we can discuss more options with your child!

Children process their emotions through their work, which is play. They naturally express what is happening internally with specific resources provided for play therapy. With the Child-Centered Play Therapy model I use, children progress through natural and predictable stages of play and expression. Some take longer than others to complete the process, but you can expect 8-12 sessions for lesser issues, and other children, depending on the level of issues, can take up to 30 or so. A key part of growth and healing for the child is the family, which is why I also offer Filial Therapy to help parents with some ways they can support their child's growth at home.

Many therapists specialize in working with young children--using play therapy, for example, and I admire the work that they do. But my own approach is to hypothesize that when a child is not doing well, the problem likely resides with the parents. Thus I coach the parents to be firm and consistent. But I also coach them to work together, if they can--since child problems, seen in the context of divorcing parents, for example, might actually be a solution in that the problem is the only thing that brings the parents together as they seek to deal with the child. So resolving the parents' issues often is the key. The child cannot be made (however unintentionally) responsible for family unity.

Parenting is not an easy task and sometimes it becomes a burden when our little ones act out. Children do not act out randomly, there is something that bothers them and is hurting them. Children, as all of us, need to feel cared for and important in the lives of significant others. When they act out, they most likely do not get the best out of their caretakers, feeling unimportant and not cared for. It is crucial to help them express their feelings and help them relate with others in a more positive way. When I work with children I always involve parents and, if applicable, school to help create an environment that nurtures change and the child's strengths.

Heather Hall, MSW, LCSW

Psychotherapist

4724 Park Rd, Suite A, Charlotte, North Carolina 28209

Although I work with persons of all ages, the heart of my practice is children ages 3-12. Imagine being angry, but when asked to describe how you're feeling, you could not use the word "angry." For children, toys are their words, and not giving them an opportunity to play out their feelings with toys is like taking away their words right before asking them to describe how they feel. Where adults use words, children use play to communicate and make sense of the world around them. As a result, I use a variety of play-based techniques to allow children to explore ways to handle challenges, transitions and feelings -- at their own developmental level & in their own language.
