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!

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!

All these and many additional growing up challenges and traumas can be potent and disturbing...(view profile to read more)

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.

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.
