Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

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 or 877-606-6161.

Shannon Rueter, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

950 Westbank Dr., Suite 104, Austin, TX 78746

I work with children ages 5+. Young children need to feel in control of their environments and a sense of trust with adults before they allow them into their world. Parents, likewise, want to feel they can trust the adult with their children and that they are giving sound and evidence based suggestions. I work with parents to co-create goals and work toward desired change in the child and family.

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, Art Therapist

13706 Research Blvd, Ste 114, Austin, TX 78750

Therapy can help children to express emotions, develop healthy coping skills, and overcome difficult life events. In providing therapy for children, I utilize a variety of approaches, such as Art Therapy, Play Therapy, and Cognitive Behavior Therapy in order to help promote healing and growth. As parents play an essential role in the well-being of a child, I believe that it is important to involve caregivers in therapy. I work with parents to develop therapeutic parenting skills, effectively manage behavior problems, and strengthen positive attachment with their child.

Licensed Professional Counselor

311 Lake Travis Business Park RR 620 S, Suite 102, Austin, TX 78734

Chidren are special;particularly when they are your own. As parents you want them to thrive, learn skills, and grow to be a happy, productive adult contributing to family, friends, and to society. Sometimes there are bumps in the road that set them back. Cognitive, physical, or emotional bumps may cause disturbances that slow progress and happiness. Early intervention, when a problem surfaces is of utmost importance because the issue may be easliy solved by learning communication skills or just having an outlet to discuss the issue. Low Energy Neurofeedback is a particularly effective treatment for ADD, ADHD, or traumatic brain injury.

Child Counselor

Kelley Hawkins, MA, LPC-I

Licensed Professional Counselor, Intern

1000 Westbank Drive, Suite #6-250, Austin, TX 78746

I work with parents and families to help develop parenting skills and tools. When children are young, their demands are constant and can be exhausting. I provide a place where you can ask questions and share everything. Feelings of guilt, inferiority, insecurity, and others are very common among parents of young children. I believe that understanding what is typical and what is not can be a very important component of parenting young children.

I am the President-Elect of the Hill Country Chapter of the Texas Association for Play Therapy. I use play therapy to connect with my younger clients. This gives me an opportunity to enter their world and see things from their unique perspective. We develop a relationship through play. I use this relationship to explore new ways for them to interact with others and together we create coping skills that work for them. I also educate parents on the best ways to communicate with their children and teach them how to motivate their children to make good choices. I see children from the ages of 3 years old through adolescence.

Christian Counseling Austin

The task of parents and teenagers is to talk to each other in an open and accepting manner. When conflict and tension is not addressed, resentment begins to build. The teen can begin to act out further, escalating the issue. I work with both teens and their parents to have a better relationship. Here are some issues that your teen may have: -Not listening to you or not following through on simple requests -Being angry, rebellious or aggressive -Seems to hate you -Always on their phone, misuse of computer/game devices -Staying out too late or hanging out with the wrong crowd -Abusing alcohol, drugs, or acting sexually promiscuous -Being “dramatic” about everything
