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.

WELL COACHED LIFE| GRIT Kids Coaching

Available for Online Therapy

GRIT Kids exists to allow parents or caregivers to aid their children in the work of self-awareness—at every developmental stage— to better understand themselves and the world around them. Simple behavioral management fails to develop the internal locus of control that is necessary for developing character and self-discipline. Forming a self-identity and learning to live with purpose is a necessary life skill for children to learn in order to live into their fullest self. GRIT Kids Coaches are trained to help you do the work of raising your child with intention so you can see that little person grow into all they are capable of.

Children are wonderful. It is through understanding, respect and commitment we can effectively work with a child. A parent successfully can connect with that child by engaging in their feelings and emotions. We can work together and engage the child in a way that will count and you will learn to really be there. When your child is acting out and they are sad, frightened or angry you will be there with them and coach them through these emotional times. This is not about a particular theory or a set of rules It is based from feeling of love and respect for the child even if there feelings are running high. We can work together engage the child and create a positive change.

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.

Associate Marriage and Family Therapist

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!

Young children benefit from my help in many ways. They learn how to verbalize their feelings and learn how to ask for what they are wanting and needing appropriately. They also learn how to express upset feelings appropriately and how to calm themselves when beginning to be overwhelmed with intense feelings. They learn how to take a break from interactions with others when they need to calm down. I help parents learn how to notice, acknowledge, praise and reinforce good behavior and how to respond effectively to inappropriate behavior. I help children and their parents create a more loving and fun connection.
