Children tend to react to life's circumstance depending upon their stage of development. Their ability to verbally express their fears and frustrations, and to problem solve is limited. Often, their fears and anxiety become evident in their behavior. Phyllis uses specific play techniques to help children, together with their parents' participation, to develop confidence, learn to communicate, overcome frustration, avoid control battles, build impulse control, develop social skills, express themselves, and meet their ultimate potential.

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.

Young children are not little adults but yet they are whole people. Children process things differently but also exhibit good resilience in many situations. In working with young children, it is especially important to work with them where they are at and in ways that allow them to relate tot he journey that is being made. When this is successful, the child not only is able to find wholeness and peace in the present but have a firm foundation for finding this in the future. A dimension of working with a child is working with the adults that are significant in that child's life. Christopher looks forward to this journety together with you.

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.

The most malleable of us all. Therefore, that segment of our society that can be most easily molded, sculpted. Since the sculptist is almost always the parents their cooperation in the therapy process cannot be emphasized enough. They are makers or breakers of it. That is why the creation of a trusting alliance with them is critical. However, respecting the boundaries and confidentiality too of the child's work (therapy) with myself. The child is allowed to express, within reason, their individuality. Encouragement is given for adaptive risk-taking and self-soothing mechanisms. I create, a safe, predictable, environment.

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.

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.
