As a parent of two kids, I know what it's like to be worried about my children. It's a terrible feeling to feel something is off track. The good news is that you can always repair with kids. I like kids, I like playing with them, I like talking to them, I enjoy hearing what they have to say and caring about what's on their mind. Through play and the relationship so much can be worked through. If your concerned about your child's anxiety, or fear, or even parenting I'm happy to sit down and have a conversation with you. I've worked with children as young as three and four years old and adolescents in their late teens. So much can be accomplished with children.

I have worked with many young adults. Teenagers in particular are going through more difficult childhoods than ever. With the advent of social media and the corresponding lack of privacy, many teens and young adults are subject to Attention Deficit Disorder, Social Isolation, feeling in a constant state of comparison and competition with peers, and a whole host of other stressors. Giving a young person a place to be safely held and heard can be the key to alleviating stress and helping live more productive, healthy live.s

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 Counselor

Tom Andre, MA

MFTI

Within Driving Distance of Toluca Lake, 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.

Children are like little adults. While they may lack the maturity and experience adults do, they're highly affected by what happens around them and are often more astute than we give them credit for.

Adolescents age 12-18. For over 20 years, I have worked with adolescents/teens. Navigating adolescence can be extremely challenging.

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

Ellie Zarrabian, PhD, CMT

Founder & Spiritual Director

Within Driving Distance of Toluca Lake, CA

Parenting can be a wonderful experience and at the same time a difficult and even a daunting one. If you are overwhelmed at times, suffer from pangs of anxiety or guilt around being a good enough parent or need someone to just talk to about the daily/ weekly ups and downs of being a parent then counseling with Dr. Ellie can be of great support. Aside from being a counselor, I am also a mother of two and have personal experience with being a parent. I know how difficult it can be, but I also know what a difference it can make when you have the right kind of support.

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

Child Counselor

Michelle Harwell, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Toluca Lake, CA

In my work with children, I utilize play therapy, which creates a secure environment where children can express themselves, try new things, learn more about how the world works, learn about social rules and boundaries, and work through their problems. The process of spontaneous play allows children to resolve the psychological tensions created by stressful events in a child’s life. Children are able to face difficult events because they are using familiar language and reactions where they have control of the play. The new scripts and schema that children create in the Play Therapy room are then generalized to their external environments.
