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.

I see children ranging from four years old through teenage. I try to make therapy an enjoyable learning experience as much as possible. My goal also is to include parent sessions as you are the long term caregivers and good communication with you is key. We may use play therapy, art therapy, sandtray therapy, family therapy or another modality to help address issues such as anger management, ADHD, behavior problems, social, academic or family issues. In addition, I do cognitive and ADHD assessments as well as diagnostic emotional testing when needed. I also provide parent guidance so you can be less reactive when dealing with your children and learn to set compassionate limits.

Children's symptoms of anxiety and depression, in some cases, can be associated with them feeling responsible for, or caught up in the middle of parental conflict. Children under the age of 5 may cry, act out, regress, or try to distract parents. Children age 6 to middle adolescence may try to intervene in the conflict. Cues that parental conflict is too high are: repeated attempts to reduce conflict, withdrawal, or exhibiting acting out behavior. Family therapy is crucial in minimizing the negative feelings for children who are experiencing distress and emotional pain. The strength of family and child therapy is bringing together the family system so the child can feel safe and secure.

Young children who experience symptoms of depression, anxiety, trauma, oppositional behaviors, aggression, poor peer relationships, or academic problems are a joy to work with. I require a parent to be present when I work with children under 6 years old, as the parent must learn how to repeat what we do in the session at home. I use play therapy, expressive arts therapy, and animal assisted therapy with young children, as I've found these to be the most effective interventions. Parents can participate in family therapy with their child, and sometimes we may meet separately to discuss their child's treatment. One great thing about counseling children is that they are so capable of change.
