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.

I specialize in counseling young children through play therapy, art therapy and sand tray therapy. Often, we think of "talk therapy" in which adults sit down and discuss their problems with a therapist. For children, their primary language is play--it's how they express themselves and how they experience the world, so that's the tool we use in therapy. I focus on a variety of techniques that assist children in expressing, processing and healing from difficult feelings and experiences through their language of play.

Often times young children do not have the words to express what is going on inside of them. I help young children by providing them with different ways to express their thoughts, feelings, worries and stresses. To help young children I often use play therapy techniques, art therapy, sand tray therapy and many more experiential modalities. In therapy I provide a safe, nurturting and therapuetic environment.

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)

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.

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.

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.
