i have extensive experience working in this area, counseling Severely Disturbed Children for over five years in a special school setting, and then moving over to work with an adult population who have committed crimes and have been incarcerated in the County Jail. I know the techniques to facilitate a person to deal more effectively with angry feelings, so that their relationships can be repaired and blossom and that they begin to get more aliveness and joy in their lives.

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.

Young children benefit from my help in many ways. They learn how to verbalize their feelings and learn how to ask for what they are wanting and needing appropriately. They also learn how to express upset feelings appropriately and how to calm themselves when beginning to be overwhelmed with intense feelings. They learn how to take a break from interactions with others when they need to calm down. I help parents learn how to notice, acknowledge, praise and reinforce good behavior and how to respond effectively to inappropriate behavior. I help children and their parents create a more loving and fun connection.

The most important factor in counseling children is building a sense of connection. Healing comes out of the relationship between therapist and child. Helping children and adolescents who are experiencing difficulties with their emotions or behavior is rewarding work because children want to find a way to feel better about themselves. Playing, drawing, building, and pretending, as well as talking, are important ways of sharing feelings and resolving problems. Sandtray is a wonderful tool to get a picture of what is going on for the young child without them having to articulate it. Validating a child without reservation, and listening with respect are key ingredients to success with kids.

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

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!
