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)

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.

Sean Faulkner, MFTi

Marriage and Family Therapist Intern

I find that counseling with children is most effective with the cooperation and collaboration of the child's parents or primary caregivers. Together with you, the child's parent/guardian, I will develop a treatment plan for how we can best meet your child's needs. Issues in younger children can sometimes be symptoms of issues in the family system, so family involvement is an essential component in supporting your child.

Children can benefit from therapy if they are currently facing stressors. It helps children develop problem-solving skills and also the value of seeking assistance before things get hard. I help the children and their families cope with stressors, that results in emotional and behavioral issues. I am able to assist children who are currently dealing with school stressors, such as homework, test anxiety, peer pressure or a significant life event such as the death of a family member, friend,pet and from a divorce. I help children and family members with tools and skills to cope with changes in the behavior, appetite, social functioning, sleep, which affects all other family members.

Marriage & Family Therapist, Registered Art Therapist

In my practice I work with young children with a variety of difficulties from controlling their anxiety, anger and tantrums, to getting along better with friends and siblings and parents. I also help them with school difficulties that include failing grades, and behavior issues. I work with the child, parent and often the teacher to remember what Erikkson taught that "behind each behavior is a feeling". My goal is to help the child access their feelings, and in a safe place, explore their feelings and behavior while learning tools to help contol them so they can live happy and fulfilled lives.

Child Counselor

Jason Esswein, M.S., LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Children have not yet learned how to shield themselves from conflict, negativity, etc. Therefore, they are akin to "sponges," soaking up whatever they are exposed to. I provide children with a healthy, authentic space in which they can connect with their feelings through play and discussion. I also work with parents on styles of communication (those they might use with their children as well as their spouse/coparent) that may be inadvertently affecting children.

Child Counselor

Laurie Chandler, MA

LMFT 86949

Within Driving Distance of San Carlos, CA

Sandplay therapy, art and play therapy help young children communicate. Children usually cannot put their concerns into words. They may not know what is bothering them. The forms of therapy I use give children a place and way to communicate and work through issues related to tension in the home, divorce, death, abuse, bullying, separation anxiety, new-school/grade fears, anger and other emotions. I work privately with the child and consult with the parents to help their child have a happy and healthy childhood.

There is nothing more important than we do in life than parent children. Raising healthy children is an important part of your legacy. Watching your children struggle with sadness, fear, or anger can feel very upsetting. Children can benefit greatly from play therapy, because children naturally work though their psychological issues with play. I started working with children from 3 to 12 in 1996 at Almaden Valley Youth Counseling Services. Success with children involves parents and teachers. If a child's parent are willing to participate in the counseling process, then much can be accomplished. A secure bond between the child and parents is critical.

Child Psychologist

John Snyder, Psy.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of San Carlos, CA

I provide a 10-week structured parenting program to help the parents of children who have been diagnosed with ADHD, who are behaving in oppositional, out of control and defiant ways. You will learn the origins of problematic child behavior and the ways in which you may be unwittingly reinforcing it. I will work to help you improve your relationship with your child by teaching you how to powerfully shape your child's behavior with praise instead of punishment. I will also teach you how use punishment more effectively when it becomes necessary.
