Child Counselor

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

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 kevin@kevinflemingphd.com or 877-606-6161.

Child Psychologist

Mary Weatherford, Ph,D., MBA, Ed.S., CRC, BCN

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of Miami, FL

While Dr. Weatherford does not do therapy, so to speak, with young children, she does offer NeurOptimal Neurofeedback training units for home use. Neurofeedback is biofeedback for the brain. It exercises and helps improve the functioning of the brain, calming it and improving its stability. It’s easy, and anyone can do it. The brain learns to increase certain brainwaves that are helpful for improved function. The American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry recommends Neurofeedback for Attention Deficits, Autism/Aspergers, Epilepsy, Head Injury, Anxiety, Trauma, Depression, Addictions, and Reading Disorders.

Child Psychologist

Elsa Orlandini, MS, MS, Psy.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist & Certified Sex Therapist

SunTrust International Center, 1 SE 3rd Ave #3000, Miami, FL

Unlike when adults need therapy, children may have a hard time communicating their needs. Play therapy is a vehicle used to help children cope with life and its challenges. Many times I do parenting training to help your child along and master the skills necessary to apply learned skills in and outside the house. Other times we learn how to perform behavior modification. In this approach we learn how to have your child progressively succeed in desire skills or tasks with rewards as incentives. Many children enjoy participating in therapy when it is presented as fun and something they can learn from. Dr. Orlandini

Child Counselor

Board Certified Mental Health Counselor and Life Coach

Within Driving Distance of Miami, FL

Play is an important part of growing up and learning, especially for children. Play therapy with small children provides them with the opportunity of learning to express feelings, trying out new coping mechanisms and adaptive behaviors. some children may have experienced trauma and helping them express, rather than analyze their experiences surrounding themes of anger, fear, sadness, etc. using a variety of interventions may help them free themselves from disturbing memories and maladaptive coping

Child Counselor

Maria Sue Butler, LMFT, Supervisor State Of Florida

LMFT Diplomate, Certified of Anger management

Within Driving Distance of Miami, FL

Small children aged 3 to 8 typically do not participate in family therapy because the vast majority of therapists consider such children too young to articulate their feelings or understand complex patterns of behavior. Butler thinks otherwise, as she perfects her skills using an approach called narrative therapy. Often described as “post-modern,” narrative therapy allows clients to put away old, tired versions of the stories they tell themselves [and everybody else] about their lives. Playing more to the clients’ strengths than their weaknesses, the approach urges clients to see themselves as much more than the presenting problem and to identify ways in which they are already taking steps

I interned at Children's Hospital and have done a lot of work with parents and children. I tend to treat a lot of children with anxiety issues, anger issues, low self-esteem and focus on parenting from an attachment perspective. I will teach you how to be a play therapist with your child and this simple and fun technique often resolves many problems that children experience. I will also work with you to ensure that you have addressed all the issues that may be effecting your child such as eating, sleep, cognitive issues, food allergies and potential abuse.

Child Counselor

Claudia Fraga, LCSW

Counselor/Child, Adolescent and Family Psychotherapist

8525 SW 92 Street, Suite B8, Miami, FL 33156

Children are assimilating life and family values during a digital age. It is an age where the speed of technology and the subliminal messages surrounding them has had a direct impact on their overall formation, thus their relationships. Counseling sessions provide an opportunity for children to disclose their feelings and their opinions about the stress of school, the stress of managing daily schedules and the stress of managing their overall emotions. We work with children to teach them to cope with daily challenges. We also work with the families so they continue to be their child's healthy support.
