Blending a family should be a happy event. A new marriage should be all about partnership and building life together. But all too often blended families are filled with conflict rather than harmony. Instead of compromise, it’s often about who’s right and who’s wrong. And the relationship with the step-children is always going to be strained. It’s no wonder that second marriages with blended families have a higher likelihood of divorce. But if you and your spouse are unified and take everyone’s needs into account, your family could function more smoothly. Many stepparents are defensive about “their” children.

Is your child acting out or shutting down? Or has her personality become unrecognizable from the carefree child she once was? Many factors contribute to the change in our children's behavior. Parents' divorce, bullying, academic stress and peer conflict are some reasons you're seeing a drastic change in your child. I provide a safe and comfortable environment to allow your child to open up about his world in order to share his feelings and learn how to communicate them more effectively. For young children, I utilize play therapy to allow them to process and express feelings in their language of play. Please call me at (949) 445-3160 to see how I can help your child.

When families are having problems with small children I work with the parent and the child. As the parent grows and learns better parenting skills the children respond. Always remember "behavior is language". The behavior of the child is telling you something, learn to listen and try to see through the eyes of the child. We learn developmental stages of their child and what reasonable expectations should be.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

Costa Mesa, CA 92626

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

Steven Harris, PhD

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of Costa Mesa, CA

In order to help create lasting change, emotional stability, and healthy self-esteem for young children, I enlist the involvement of the parent(s)/ guardians as a kind of co-therapist to work with children. The parent(s) in an intact family are so regularly and intricately involved with the child that their emotional life and ways of responding to the child are of primary importance. While I will see a young child alone, I also need to work with the biggest influence on the young child, the parents or significant guardian/others in their lives to be effective for your child.
