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. I help traumatized children of crimes through the Victim of Crime program to bring healing to their thoughts and help them overcome their fears.

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!

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.

WELL COACHED LIFE| GRIT Kids Coaching

Available for Online Therapy

GRIT Kids exists to allow parents or caregivers to aid their children in the work of self-awareness—at every developmental stage— to better understand themselves and the world around them. Simple behavioral management fails to develop the internal locus of control that is necessary for developing character and self-discipline. Forming a self-identity and learning to live with purpose is a necessary life skill for children to learn in order to live into their fullest self. GRIT Kids Coaches are trained to help you do the work of raising your child with intention so you can see that little person grow into all they are capable of.

It's one of the most challenging feelings imaginable to watch our children struggle with their emotional and social selves. For many parents, we'd gladly take their pain as our own if we could. A child's brain works very differently from a teen's or an adults, so therapy needs to be different too! When working with children I use a combination of Play Therapy, Sand Tray, Behavioral Therapy, Art Therapy, and Talk Therapy. Where possible mindfulness, yoga, and other therapies adjusted for child therapy can help children to increase focus, manage their emotional selves, improve cognitive abilities, and manage their bodies. Give your child his/her best chance for the future. Call today!
