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)

If you feel like you are at a loss for how to parent your child, you are not alone. Your child didn't come with instructions, so oftentimes parents find themselves frustrated and overwhelmed with trying to figure out what is the "right" way to do things. Come in for individual, family, or parent coaching sessions to learn how to be the parent your child needs and deserves.

Parenting is rarely without stress, conflict and feelings of failure. Two children do not respond the same to techniques of parental guidance and training. What works for one child seldom works for the other children in the family. I can provide the parental instruction and guidance to assist you in solving the issues which contribute to the conflict.

Counseling children is very different from working with adults. Children process their inner world through play. They rarely sit and talk in session, although it is something that happens as children form a unique alliance with me as their trusted counselor. Some techniques I use include art therapy, sand tray, puppet play, and therapeutic games. Whether working on anxiety issues, divorce losses, bullying, or OCD, children learn coping mechanisms that empower and encourage them. I try to keep parents apprised of their child's progress while maintaining confidentiality.

Decades of research has taught us that the world of the child is one of exploration and play. A child lacks the ability to verbalize their feelings, but, if given the opportunity, can “play out” those feelings in a safe environment. Therefore, we believe that a child’s primary language for expressing their feelings is through their play. In our therapy sessions we strive to meet the child at his/her level and invite them to play freely in our playroom under the watchful eye of our trained play therapist. Through the vehicle of play we help the child to express their confusing and often overwhelming feelings, help them to change negative behavior, and learn more adaptive behaviors.

Many kids need help dealing with school stress, such as homework, test anxiety, bullying, or peer pressure. Others need help to discuss their feelings about family issues, particularly if there's a major transition, such as a divorce, move, or serious illness. In some cases, it's not as clear what's caused a child to suddenly seem withdrawn, worried, stressed, sulky, or tearful. But if you feel your child might have an emotional or behavioral problem or needs help coping with a difficult life event, trust your instincts.

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.
