Young children don't necessary have the skill or developmental capability to share their feelings verbally, instead they might act out more or show difficulties sleeping or engaging with other children. Since at a young age the child is not able to articulate and understand their feelings and experiences cognitively, I utilize play therapy and EMDR to provide a safe way for children to overcome painful experiences and to find better ways of dealing with difficult situations in their lives.

If young children are traumatized, I offer EMDR therapy with their mothers or fathers present, to help these little ones process disturbing events, nightmares and fears, so that these things aren't stuck in their minds their whole lives - which is what frequently happens. I only counsel young children with parents involved. It is such a blessing to work with these sweet babes to help them be carefree, as children should be.

After 11 years of working with children, I find it more effective to work with you, the parent. This is not because you are responsible for the way your child is behaving or what your child is going through, but because you have the most positive power and influence in your child's life. If I can use what I know through education and experience to empower you the parent to connect to your child, it will be more impactful and long lasting than if I spend therapy sessions with them. Your child will also find healing through their relationship with you, increasing trust, and strengthening your relationship for the present and future. You will have your Parenting Power back, stronger than ever!

Chat with me at www.couplesandfamilytherapy.biz. Free HR, Free in-depth communication guidelines. I only provide therapy for children WITH a parent and other family members if needed. Children may need therapy if they've experienced loss, neglect, abuse or trauma, are having behavior, anger management or family issues or are exhibiting mental health symptoms. These children may need compassion, understanding, appreciation & affirmation, caring guidance, room to express themselves & be seen & heard. Children often need a different kind of therapy than adults. With children, I blend the previous approaches with drawing/coloring, games, playing, singing, movement/dance & telling stories.

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.
