Child Counselor

Sean Jackson, MA, LMHC

Licensed Mental Health Counselor

1817 Queen Anne Ave N, #409, Seattle, WA 98109

In working with children, I utilize a psychodynamic modality of treatment, including play therapy, as the primary way of purposefully engaging your child to discover and understand more about the cause of their current difficulties. I typically provide a treatment plan for the parent/s that details what it is I am doing and why. I also believe it is incredibly important in working with children to include the parent/s as often as possible and include that in the treatment plan. If your child is struggling in a way that is confusing to you and causing you distress, it may be helpful to discuss further and find out if your child could benefit from meeting with me.

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.

Children can experience times of stress and anxiety just like adults; however, it often manifests as poor behavior, temper tantrums, inability to focus, and disrespect. As desired behavior decreases, tension can build between parents and their children which can exacerbate the overall strains at home. If your child is struggling, playful-styled therapy can assist to understand the underlying cause of your child’s strife.

I specialize in helping you support and care for your child. Long term we both want your child to have stronger bonds- and a stronger sense of being known by you. Together we will decipher what their behavior is sharing with us and what kinds of concrete tools you and your child can take home. Emotion Coaching, Positive Discipline, and Whole Brain Child concepts are tools we will utilize. With a clearer picture of what is happening in your child's internal world we can partner to find boundaries and connection points. You and your child need a fresh perspective and extra care. Call me and lets see what we can create!

Child Counselor

Shanna Donhauser, MSW

Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker Associate

2319 N 45th St, Suite 212, Seattle, WA 98103

As an infant mental health specialist, I work with infants and very small children on optimizing social and emotional development. This includes play therapy, child-parent psychotherapy, and family therapy approaches to help the child thrive in their primary relationships. Therapy with very small children may seem unusual for most people, but it's similar to work done with older children. It's typically play oriented, with a specific focus on play themes and what is communicated through play. Therapy with very small children invariably requires a commitment from parents to attend sessions and be actively involved in treatment.
