I work with young children and their parents helping parents understand the developmental stages of their children and plan appropriate parenting strategies for those stages. In my practice, parents accompany their children and either talk out their issues and/or join the children in playing floor games with them. When necessary psychoeducational evaluations can be performed.

I love working with young children because I truly believe in the importance of early intervention. The earlier we address concerns, the more fully our children can blossom. I integrate a wide variety of techniques so that I can help children on numerous different levels. I believe in a comprehensive approach, and will teach you- the parent- how to better interact with your child as well. As a mother myself, I know how much each of us wants to "get it right"... but sometimes it can be hard to know what "right" is. I can help you match your parenting technique to your child's style, so that you can reduce household conflict and encourage positive coping skills and healthy self-confidence.

I am knowledgeable about young children, as I have a doctorate in child psychology. I am happy to advise or help parents with young children, who are taking a little longer to potty train, having a lot of tantrums, bedwetting, falling behind in school, may have a learning disability. I work closely with the parents, and in many cases would not treat the child directly. I usually focus on and get to know the parent, how I can best support them as a parent, as a spouse, and as a person in the world.

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.

A relationship built on trust is vital to the success of any treatment involving a child. The young person in treatment must feel comfortable, safe and understood, in an environment in which honest thoughts and feelings can be expressed, often for the first time. The therapeutic relationship that develops in this environment enables improved expression of feelings and behavior, leading to growth and improvement in interpersonal relationships at home, in school and elsewhere.

When children have problems, those problems are directly related to their relationship with their parents. Hence, my approach to working with children is to work with the whole family. If a child is acting up at school, he generally has parents who are, often unintentionally, not giving him what he needs at home. All parents want to believe that they are good parents, and it is hard for them to accept that they may be doing things that are causing their children to have problems. My job is to gently and patiently create a constructive atmosphere and honest communication between parents and children, which help the children resolve their problems and learn to thrive.

As a licensed family therapist, a former elementary school teacher and having raised a family, I have devotion and experience in addressing the needs of children. When parents contact me to provide therapy or anger management for their young children, I respond by bringing the parent or family into treatment as well. While I provide therapy for teens as individuals, I provide parenting skill therapy, explore educational concerns and offer family counseling as treatment to address the child's issues.

In addition to my work with adolescents and adults, I also work with young children (ages 3 to 12) using play & art therapy plus. A large component of that work is with their parent(s). After spending more than 25 years with parents who have children who are emotionally unstable, oppositionally defiant, socially shy, bullied, or otherwise struggling, I have an edge on knowing how to teach optimal parenting. In addition to my licenses as an MFT & MHC, I am also a licensed Speech-Language Pathologist & Audiologist. Hence I also work with children who are ADD, ADHD, LD, speech and/or language Impaired, & hard of hearing or deaf. When I help a child, I help the family. A double whamee.

Like adults, a child’s behavior can change when (s)he is feeling stressed out. Common symptoms are suddenly seeming withdrawn, worried, stressed, sulky or tearful. Therapy can help kids improve their problem-solving skills and also teach them the value of seeking help. The kinds of problems that are addressed include: school stress (homework, bullying or peer pressure), family issues (parents fighting, impending divorce or other transitions like a loss, move or serious illness). If you feel your child might have an emotional or behavioral problem or needs help coping with a difficult life event, trust your instincts and call for a consultation.
