Do you have a stressed out pre-teen or middle school child? Are they suffering from school anxiety or peer issues? Do they have a chronic health condition like type 1 diabetes? I can help them navigate the complicated world of pre-adolescence. The hormones are raging and they may have stomach aches, headaches due to emotional issues. Sometimes they don't have the words to communicate their feelings and I am flexible in my approach. Together we will work on tuning into their emotions and increasing coping skills.

After 11 years of working with children, I find it more effective to work with you, the parent. This is not because you are responsible for the way your child is behaving or what your child is going through, but because you have the most positive power and influence in your child's life. If I can use what I know through education and experience to empower you the parent to connect to your child, it will be more impactful and long lasting than if I spend therapy sessions with them. Your child will also find healing through their relationship with you, increasing trust, and strengthening your relationship for the present and future. You will have your Parenting Power back, stronger than ever!

Child and adolescent counseling can play a very important role in the life of a child who is dealing with one or more of the wide area of childhood challenges and traumas. Children can become the unintended victims of parents who had little training to become parents, had little time to be parents or experienced separation, abandonment, divorce , a change in parenting, step-parenting, foster parenting as well were challenged by dysfunctional homes with addictions, emotional disturbances and instabilities, extreme fighting, arguing, violence and abuse, frequent moving, and being passed from one divorced parent to another or from family member to family memeber. All these and many additional growing up challenges and traumas can be potent and disturbing...(view profile to read more)

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.

i have extensive experience working in this area, counseling Severely Disturbed Children for over five years in a special school setting, and then moving over to work with an adult population who have committed crimes and have been incarcerated in the County Jail. I know the techniques to facilitate a person to deal more effectively with angry feelings, so that their relationships can be repaired and blossom and that they begin to get more aliveness and joy in 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.

I provide a 10-week structured parenting program to help the parents of children who have been diagnosed with ADHD, who are behaving in oppositional, out of control and defiant ways. You will learn the origins of problematic child behavior and the ways in which you may be unwittingly reinforcing it. I will work to help you improve your relationship with your child by teaching you how to powerfully shape your child's behavior with praise instead of punishment. I will also teach you how use punishment more effectively when it becomes necessary.

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.
