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 have a heart for children who have been abused emotionally, physically or sexually. Play Therapy is an effective way to help a child work through their trauma. It is also a great way to teach the child ways to express their emotions. It also provides a way fo me to teach children new tools designed to give them a voice, equip and empower them. The age range is 6-12.

Young children need a safe place to express their needs and frustrations as well as guidance in managing their frustration in acceptable ways. Often working with children leads to assisting parents in ways to connect more closely with their children while acquiring some tools to set and enforce reasonable boundaries. Whether helping a child process through trauma or learn self control my goal is to not only provide guidance for your child but also for you in working with them at home.

When working with young children I make use of play exercises, as playing is one of the primary ways in which children express what is going on in their "world" both mentally and emotionally. I also place significant emphasis on their family life, as a child's behavior is strongly impacted by their home life. I also provide parent coaching in order to equip the parents with effective skills to manage the child's behavioral difficulties. I believe that effectively helping a child often requires both individual therpay with the child and family therapy.

I am a Registered Play Therapist (RPT) which means that I have specialized training in working with young children to help them resolve problems they are facing. Play Therapy helps children express what is troubling them when they do not have the verbal skills to express their thoughts and feelings. In Play Therapy, toys are like the child's words and play is the child's language. In spending time with a Play Therapist a child can learn to cope with difficult emotions, develop problem solving skills, modify behavior, and communicate better with others.
