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.

Do you have a stressed out pre-teen or middle school child? Are they suffering from school anxiety or peer issues? Do they have a chronic health condition like type 1 diabetes? I can help them navigate the complicated world of pre-adolescence. The hormones are raging and they may have stomach aches, headaches due to emotional issues. Sometimes they don't have the words to communicate their feelings and I am flexible in my approach. Together we will work on tuning into their emotions and increasing coping skills.

At Home or Private Discreet Intensives

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.

Child Therapist

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!
