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.

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.

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.

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.
