Child Counselor

Betsy Walli, MS, PhD

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist 85860

Hermosa Beach office near, Rolling Hills Estates, CA 90274

When children feel accepted the way they are, they are free to change. I create a safe place in which a child can express his or her emotions and feel understood and valued. Opportunities within the session for responsibility, decision-making, and control help children trust and accept themselves. In therapy, play is for children what words are for adults. Children work through and reveal their thoughts and feelings through their play. Lacking the extensive vocabularies and associations of meanings that adults have, children often are more comfortable exploring and expressing themselves through play, games, and art.

Children experience depression, anxiety, fears, uncertainties, self-esteem issues, and confusion. Sometimes, their experiences are even bigger than an adults because they feel that they have so little power to change their situation or who they are. Play Therapies of all sorts helps young children explore, express and resolve such reactions so they can become free and fully functioning. Childhood anger is also often an expression of fear, self-hatred, feeling powerless or confused too. Dr. Carol Francis has been working with children (and their parents), ages 3-18 since 1977 in clinics, hospitals, schools and now in her private practice. Call 310-543-1824

Child Counselor

Jill Ruby-Wahba, MA, LMFT, ATR

Marital and Family Therapist, Specializing in Clinical Art Therapy

Within Driving Distance of Rolling Hills Estates, CA

Children need adults to guide them how to behave in the world, to know they are safe, loved. I like to work with the parents as an advocacy team for their child. I will work with parents to help them recognize their child’s needs, and learn ways to soothe and empower them. The goal is to build a child who feels safe and protected enough to develop self-confidence, resilience, and independence to explore and learn about the way things work and trust that their instincts will guide them to make good choices and stay safe. I work with children to help them find their voice, to be able to learn to express their feelings and needs clearly to their parents, caregivers, teachers, peers.

Child and adolescent counseling can play a very important role in the life of a child who is dealing with one or more of the wide area of childhood challenges and traumas. Children can become the unintended victims of parents who had little training to become parents, had little time to be parents or experienced separation, abandonment, divorce , a change in parenting, step-parenting, foster parenting as well were challenged by dysfunctional homes with addictions, emotional disturbances and instabilities, extreme fighting, arguing, violence and abuse, frequent moving, and being passed from one divorced parent to another or from family member to family memeber. All these and many additional growing up challenges and traumas can be potent and disturbing...(view profile to read more)

Child Counselor

Cristy Pareti, PsyD, MFT

Marriage & Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Rolling Hills Estates, CA

Too often therapies are not targeted at children's age levels. I specialize in play therapy with young children. Play therapy is an opportunity for children to express feelings, emotions or trauma in a safe environment. Developmentally, children are not able to adequately express their feelings or experiences in words. Through play therapy, the therapist can interact and help the child to express and heal important feelings related to their experiences. I have specialized doctoral clinical training in play therapy and child therapy. I have found play therapy, combined with family therapy, to be an effective technique to help children with anxiety, trauma, depression, and behavioral problems.

Child Counselor

Amie Lowery-Luyties, MFT, PPS, MS

Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Rolling Hills Estates, CA

For about 7 years I only worked with children in my practice. The rest of my practice has been split working with adults and with kids. With kids, its all about their instinct and comfort. If they sense that the therapist isn't comfortable or experienced with kids, they won't engage in the therapy process. I use a variety of techniques working with children, depending on their age. For smaller children, art therapy and play therapy can be very successful for a variety of reasons. The main reason is that it takes the focus off of them and they feel more at ease to talk and be open. For older children who can handle "talk therapy", using simpler language can be effective.

Child Counselor

Tom Andre, MA

MFTI

Within Driving Distance of Rolling Hills Estates, CA

No group of people is as subject to the power of others as young children. Often acutely aware of their situation, I position myself as an ally as they decide how they want to act in the face of this power. I view childrens' voices and creativity as major assets that, if given their due, will serve them well as the move through their teen years and into young adulthood.

I have years of experience treating children in pre-school through middle school. I worked in schools and at home with oppositional children, kids with learning delays, who "act out," tantrum, do not handle transitions in activity well. I have worked with violent children, academic underachievers, children with separation anxiety, bedwetting, and children who eat non-nutritional objects. Applied Behavior Analysis is oftern used to create ground-rules that reinforce acceptable behavior and discourage negative behaviors. It's important that extended family (and teachers, and caretakers, if possible) be on the same page. A united front is essential to positively modify children's behaviors

Children experience life just as we adults to. Taking time to discuss emotions and feelings, the child will be able to gain tools to access feeling words and express themselves appropriately. Sometimes life becomes chaotic for children (new baby, school transitions, etc.), having a safe place to talk where someone listens will create a positive outcome on their outlook.

Art and journaling are a significant part of homework to allow the youth to express and reduce their emotional overload.
