Here at My True Temperament Christian Counseling, LLC, we help parents and children, 7-18 years of age, learn and understand the child's true temperament. True temperament means what are the inherent ways, ways specific to the child and not to his/her environment, in which the child prefers to interact with others. We measure the child's temperament in three ways. Inclusion/Social Orientation, Control/Power, and Affection/Emotions. The greatest benefit to both parents and child knowing the child's true temperament is the ability to work with the temperament of the child and not against it. For the convenience of the family, True Temperament Counseling is offered strictly online.

Working with young children requires that the professional possesses specialized knowledge and skills that enable them to identify problem behaviors and formulate appropriate interventions that are developmentally appropriate for the child. As a psychologist trained to work with children and families, I develop individualized treatment plans appropriate to each child's and family's specific needs. Working with children, I use an playful approach which will engage the child in addressing any psychic conflicts they may be experiencing and find healthy ways to address those conflicts so that children can function at their most optimal level in all facets of life.

I have a heart for children who have been abused emotionally, physically or sexually. Play Therapy is an effective way to help a child work through their trauma. It is also a great way to teach the child ways to express their emotions. It also provides a way fo me to teach children new tools designed to give them a voice, equip and empower them. The age range is 6-12.

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.

Associate Marriage and Family Therapist

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!

Young children need a safe place to express their needs and frustrations as well as guidance in managing their frustration in acceptable ways. Often working with children leads to assisting parents in ways to connect more closely with their children while acquiring some tools to set and enforce reasonable boundaries. Whether helping a child process through trauma or learn self control my goal is to not only provide guidance for your child but also for you in working with them at home.
