Licensed Professional Counselor

I work with children ages 9 and up. I integrate play therapy techniques, but I also specialize in sandtray therapy. Children feel like they are getting to come play, but they are doing real emotional and psychological work. I also work with parents to create an atmosphere at home that encourages the desired behaviors. I have experience with academic under performance, defiant behavior, anger, anxiety, trauma, depression, attachment problems, lying, sibling fighting, and many other problems that children go through.

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 need methods tailored to their age. Working with the parents and child we use proven methods to help overcome problems at home, school and with friends. Children and parents learn to manage anxiety, depression, stress and disappointment so that daily situations are successfully addressed. This also helps parents and children stop focusing on the problems and enjoy being a family.

Khara Fuentes, LMFT
Child Therapist

Khara Fuentes, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 85048 - Nearby to Avondale.

In her work with young children Khara utilizes her 4.5lb trained therapy dog, named Tino. When children don't want to come to therapy, they often want to go to see Tino. This helps children feel more comfortable faster than would be possible without Tino's help. This allows Khara to "jump right in" to why your child is coming to therapy. Khara uses Tino to teach children important skills like listening, following directions, and most important, setting healthy boundaries.
