I help children process their challenges through play therapy. I use drawing exercises and board games such as Talking, Feeling and Doing game made especially for therapist in play therapy. I use sand tray and puppets as methods to communicate with the child. I help traumatized children of crimes through the Victim of Crime program to bring healing to their thoughts and help them overcome their fears.

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 and teens express themselves through play and activities. I have a separate play area with sand tray and art available for the purpose of expressing emotions that children are otherwise unable to express. These methods allow children and teens to fully express what they feel inside and allow healing to occur in a natural way. I also utilize multiple projective methods as evaluation tools.

Many therapists share they use play therapy in their practice with children, but have not taken further training on its use in therapy. I am a Registered Play Therapist Supervisor, which means I completed 3 years and 3000 additional hours of practice after licensure, clinical supervision, consistent continued education courses, and significant focus in at least two play therapy evidence based practices. I utilize Child Centered Play Therapy, Filial Therapy, Digital Play Therapy, and Prescriptive Play Therapy to address children's needs in addition to creative arts therapies (Drama Therapy, Art Therapy interventions).
