Parenting can be a wonderful experience and at the same time a difficult and even a daunting one. If you are overwhelmed at times, suffer from pangs of anxiety or guilt around being a good enough parent or need someone to just talk to about the daily/ weekly ups and downs of being a parent then counseling with Dr. Ellie can be of great support. Aside from being a counselor, I am also a mother of two and have personal experience with being a parent. I know how difficult it can be, but I also know what a difference it can make when you have the right kind of support.

You are your child's most important connection in life. Parent-child relationships form the basis of how we see ourselves in the world. However, kids don't come with an owner's manual! Often how we were treated as children serves as our only unconscious - or conscious - guide for what to do. Learning from how we would have liked to have been treated can help parents feel more confident and secure in helping their children survive and thrive in the world. I help parents develop the kind of secure attachment that their children need in order for children to feel confident and safe in exploring the world.

Licensed Clinical Pastoral Counselor

Available for Online Therapy

Here at My True Temperament Christian Counseling, LLC, we help parents and children, 7-18 years of age, learn and understand the child's true temperament. True temperament means what are the inherent ways, ways specific to the child and not to his/her environment, in which the child prefers to interact with others. We measure the child's temperament in three ways. Inclusion/Social Orientation, Control/Power, and Affection/Emotions. The greatest benefit to both parents and child knowing the child's true temperament is the ability to work with the temperament of the child and not against it. For the convenience of the family, True Temperament Counseling is offered strictly online.

I work with families with young children differently than some therapists. I firmly believe that the parents of the child are always the most powerful influencers of their own children. Children don't live in a vacuum. They live with you! The benefit you will have with me is that I work directly with you to help you be more effective in taking care of your child's social and emotional needs. Rather than assuming a stranger has more ability to help your child, respectfully guiding you empowers you as a parent.

Play therapy is form of counseling or psychotherapy that helps children express or communicate their feelings. Children often have difficulty verbalizing what is going on in their world. I use play therapy in helping children from the ages of 3-8 work through their big feelings and learn skills so that they can effectively communicate and navigate their lives.

I find that counseling with children is most effective with the cooperation and collaboration of the child's parents or primary caregivers. Together with you, the child's parent/guardian, I will develop a treatment plan for how we can best meet your child's needs. Issues in younger children can sometimes be symptoms of issues in the family system, so family involvement is an essential component in supporting your child.

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.
