By creating a playful atmosphere work is done in the context of having fun and amusement. I use mini figures/toys and pebbles/stones of different shape and size to invite children to create their own 'internal landscape' on specific topics, as well as take part in 'sculpting exercises', where they can easily visualize and demonstrate different roles and positions within a family system.

I do not work with children directly, I work with parents. I do work with willing teens. You may too often feel like a failure as a parent, or be worried for your child’s future when you notice behaviours that upset you. You may be dismayed at how you feel about being a parent, or might have increasing conflict with your partner about your differing values or parenting strategies. Parenting is challenging for all of us, and may be more so depending on your particular child or your upbringing. You can become more aware of how your past influences your parenting today, and make changes. I especially encourage queer parents or parents of queer youth to reach out.

If you’ve landed here, chances are your child hasn't been feeling quite like themselves. Life can be really overwhelming, leaving us feeling disconnected, stressed and anxious. Together, we will figure out how to best resolve the challenges your child is facing. I have training coaching children 6-12 years of age through my life coaching company. I will walk beside your child in their journey to bring new perspectives and understanding. I work online with my clients so they can have sessions from the comfort of their home. If you feel ready to make a shift in your life, I look forward to meeting you!

Children, like adults, can be affected by anxiety, stress, pressure and self-esteem issues. It can be very challenging for children to balance a busy lifestyle of sports, school, friends, and personal growth. It can also be very challenging for parents to watch and support their child as they struggle. We use child play therapy as a great tool to support young children in expressing their inner thoughts and feelings, while also creating tools and strategies for how they can cope with things better. We will also work with the parents, as needed to better understand their child and learn tools on how to support them.

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.

Is your teen struggling? Are they having trouble thriving in school, at home, or in their relationships? Do they need someone outside the family they can talk to? I’m Tim, and I help young people navigate the complex world of being a teenager. With me, young people can expect therapy grounded in respect, encouragement, humor, as well as evidence-based techniques. Whether it be anxiety, relationships, anger, or family issues, I work with teens to find out the root causes of their mental health challenges, provide a trusting and empathic ear, and find solutions that work for them and their family. ***Please note - I only work with kids ages 14 and up.

Children are resilient. They have an amazing way of adapting to change in the world around them. When a child has lost their ability to adapt or is no longer able to cope and manage their world, a multitude of behaviors can manifest. This can be scary and frustrating for the parent or caregiver and can be equally difficult for the child. We understand and appreciate the struggles that children face today and how challenging parenting can be. We will work together to uncover the underlying issues and recreate harmony for both the child and/or parent. In a warm and understanding environment we will use a variety of techniques, customized to your child'd individual needs.
