Children come to therapy for a variety of reasons. Some examples are behavioral problems, failing grades, not focusing, not staying on task, fighting with peers, poor social skills, not listening at home, and hyperactivity. Using play therapy and art therapy, I help children express themselves. Children experience counseling as fun which results in them expressing themselves honestly and resolving the issue through play. If you want to help your child be successful in school or at home, I can help you.

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.

The first several years of life are some of the most significant in terms of creating a foundation for successful emotional regulation, forming positive relationships, etc. We have several therapists who specialize in treating infants, toddlers and young children. They work by helping the caregiver to form a secure attachment or strong bond with the child so that the child can feel safe and secure (essentials of healthy development). This is done through play. It can be hard to know when your infant or toddler may need the support of a professional, so please call if you have any questions and one of our therapists will be happy to consult with you.

Working with young children requires special training, since kids do not have the same ability to talk about their feelings like adults can. That is why my extra training in Play Therapy is a huge benefit that I offer as a therapist, since it allows me to utilize effective strategies to help kids who are struggling with challenges such as behavior problems, academic difficulties, social skills, depression, anxiety, trauma, or adjustment difficulties. Many therapists do not have special training in working with young children, so this is an important aspect to consider when choosing someone to work with your child. Thank you for your consideration!

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.
