Therapy for Children and Parents Providing Behavioral and Emotional Health Services for Children, Adolescents and Families in person or via telehealth.
When life gets hard, we feel stuck in the riptide of the waves of our emotions. The beauty of therapy is that we talk (and laugh) - without judgment or shame about the nitty gritty anxieties that can rip us apart inside when it comes to our kids. When we can make sense of this, we can be there for our child.
And guess what?
Your child's behavior will improve and your relationship will too.
To catch a glimpse of a child's expression of relief, happiness, and appreciation for their parent when they are accepted for who they are is rewarding beyond words. We can accomplish this in individual therapy for your child/teen and for you- the parent. Miami child psychologist Dr. Eva Benmeleh’s goal is to help you enjoy life and most of all, to cherish life's moments with those closest to you.

Child Parent Psychotherapy for children ages 0-5 and parents
Parents/guardians learn a new perspective into their child's thoughts, feelings and behaviors when working with me in therapy.
Once parents gain this awareness, then their child/toddler is invited to join us in dyadic play therapy, where the issues are worked on through play.
What is Play Therapy?
Dyadic Play Therapy is play with a purpose. I am trained to observe and analyze a child's themes in play and use the themes as springboards to help the child find solutions to the problems that are affecting their life.
Play is the heart and soul of childhood and one of the best ways kids express their innermost fears and aspirations.
Play is the child's way of processing and learning about how the world works.
When parents learn to play with their child and are guided through how to help their child express their emotions, their relationship strengthens and the trust between the two is magnified.
Individual therapy for children 6 years and up experiencing depression, anxiety, and behavioral problems
Children and teens can share their concerns in a safe, confidential, and fun environment where we play or talk through their difficulties. A typical session with your teen will be a combination of insightful work, proactive strategies to apply in the real world, and laughter.
Parents are invited to join sessions for family therapy to address parenting concerns related to discipline, independence, and child development.
