Young children need support navigating their emotions as much as adults do, maybe even more. But the way children learn and cope with their emotions is different than adults. It requires translation from the adult understanding to the child’s language and there back again. I’m here to work with your child to find their way of navigating the world with stability and balance.

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.

Decades of research has taught us that the world of the child is one of exploration and play. A child lacks the ability to verbalize their feelings, but, if given the opportunity, can “play out” those feelings in a safe environment. Therefore, we believe that a child’s primary language for expressing their feelings is through their play. In our therapy sessions we strive to meet the child at his/her level and invite them to play freely in our playroom under the watchful eye of our trained play therapist. Through the vehicle of play we help the child to express their confusing and often overwhelming feelings, help them to change negative behavior, and learn more adaptive behaviors.

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!
