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.

Children grow and change on a daily basis, which can be a difficult process not only for the child but for the parents as well. I assist children in learning how to express themselves through fun, creative outlets that are both age appropriate and applicable across multiple settings. Such settings may include home, school and multiple social avenues.

I work with young children therapeutically, and perform evaluations for ADHD and developmental or learning problems. Because young children lack the capacity to express them verbally, play therapy is the treatment of choice. Through play, children gain a better understanding of their experiences, work through issues that are challenging to them, and feel more cared for. I almost always incorporate parenting sessions to provide support and strategies for parents and family sessions to improve family communication and relationships. Within my group practice, we also work with infants who may be experiencing bonding difficulties due to adoption, mother's postpartum depression, or trauma.

A child's job is to be happy! However, for some children due to circumstances that don't always make sense, they experience emotional or behavioral issues that get in the way of their functioning. When I work with children have an eclectic approach to therapy. I utilize a variety of therapeutic techniques such as cognitive behavioral therapy, psycho-dynamic therapy, solution focused therapy, narrative therapy, play therapy and art therapy. The interventions I utilize help children feel safe and talk through the thoughts and emotions they are experiencing. I will introduce interventions which will help them increase their coping skills and communication skills and process any traumas.

Children experience depression, anxiety, fears, uncertainties, self-esteem issues, and confusion. Sometimes, their experiences are even bigger than an adults because they feel that they have so little power to change their situation or who they are. Play Therapies of all sorts helps young children explore, express and resolve such reactions so they can become free and fully functioning. Childhood anger is also often an expression of fear, self-hatred, feeling powerless or confused too. Dr. Carol Francis has been working with children (and their parents), ages 3-18 since 1977 in clinics, hospitals, schools and now in her private practice. Call 310-543-1824

For about 7 years I only worked with children in my practice. The rest of my practice has been split working with adults and with kids. With kids, its all about their instinct and comfort. If they sense that the therapist isn't comfortable or experienced with kids, they won't engage in the therapy process. I use a variety of techniques working with children, depending on their age. For smaller children, art therapy and play therapy can be very successful for a variety of reasons. The main reason is that it takes the focus off of them and they feel more at ease to talk and be open. For older children who can handle "talk therapy", using simpler language can be effective.

Dr. Clark has extensive training and experience as a child psychologist (including eight years as a Director of Child and Family Services). The most effective approach, in most cases, will involve an initial interview with the child and parents to obtain background information, followed by meetsing with the parents regarding parenting strategies. For adolescents, individual therapy can also be a useful.

Stress for young children can often be challenging to discern. Parents may notice that their child begins to experience a greater incidence of tantrums and/or angry outbursts, but often attribute such changes to growing up. Children may also demonstrate strict rules for their play and become upset when their schedule is changed without warning. Sometimes parents may not be able to identify obvious signs of stress in their children, but recognize that their child has encountered a number of stressors. In any of these cases, children can benefit from therapy wherein they can explore how to express their feelings and learn to process their emotions in a safe non-judgmental environment.
