Raising your children can be a rewarding and joyous experience. Still, parenting comes with unique challenges and often frustrations, at every stage of development. I help parents learn not only what works, but also how to consistently implement change. Together we work on appropriate expectations, setting limits, and developing strategies to solve problems as they happen. I also concentrate on discipline, approaching it from a natural consequence viewpoint, rather than as a punitive measure. After all, the goal of any external discipline should be that the child eventually internalize it and discipline themselves. I look forward to assisting you: 949.370.4726 or info@southoccounseling.com.

Children often have trouble expressing themselves to strangers or to a Doctor. As a result, counseling can involve hours of building trust with a child and allowing the child to express themselves freely through play and imagination. Counseling a child can not be engaged in effectively when the parents are not involved in the process. Counseling the parents in communication skills that enhance bonding, boundary implementation, and behavior modification are essential if a child is to grow in healthy ways.

Associate Marriage & Family Therapist

Available for Online Therapy

Chat with me at www.couplesandfamilytherapy.biz. Free HR, Free in-depth communication guidelines. I only provide therapy for children WITH a parent and other family members if needed. Children may need therapy if they've experienced loss, neglect, abuse or trauma, are having behavior, anger management or family issues or are exhibiting mental health symptoms. These children may need compassion, understanding, appreciation & affirmation, caring guidance, room to express themselves & be seen & heard. Children often need a different kind of therapy than adults. With children, I blend the previous approaches with drawing/coloring, games, playing, singing, movement/dance & telling stories.

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!

Everyone experiences pain / sadness at some point. Even we as adults though sometimes cannot explain what we are experiencing and exactly why. For our children, they will be less likely to verbalize what is happening for them and more likely to act it out. Our children need to be given the tools to best express their wants and needs, as well as whatever emotions and thoughts they are experiencing. Let's give them a voice and teach them the healthy ways.

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.
