Often times young children do not have the words to express what is going on inside of them. I help young children by providing them with different ways to express their thoughts, feelings, worries and stresses. To help young children I often use play therapy techniques, art therapy, sand tray therapy and many more experiential modalities. In therapy I provide a safe, nurturting and therapuetic environment.

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.

I have worked with children as young as 7 years old, but one of my areas of interest is working with teenagers. In my experience, in contrast to adults and young children, when teenagers experience hardships and difficulty in life, they act inward, turning away from people, as opposed to acting outwards and looking for help and support. When working with teens it is my job to show them that I am a trustworthy, "chill"/"cool"/casual guy who they can talk to about anything they want to. After kids warm up in therapy and start talking, they typically magically get better simply through having a designated person they can open up and talk to.
