Teens can have a variety of difficulties including questioning their identities, struggling with self esteem and acceptance issues, worrying about meeting expectations, lacking organizational skills, and recovering from abandonment or trauma. I work with teens to help them develop their personal values, identify their unique talents and abilities, develop social and practical skills, and heal from past hurts and trauma. Anxiety and bullying are also common issues I work with.

I use non-directive, directive and sand play therapy when working with children. Given that younger children's brains are in a process of development and many of the more complex cognitive skills don't develop until later, play is the most effect method of learning to solve problems and process emotions or issues. As a school counselor I worked with families, teachers and children. I have trained as a synergistic play therapist, a person centered play therapist and in sand play.

Children are incredible, talented beings! However, oftentimes we have adult expectations of children, in terms of managing BIG emotions - when they haven't been given the tools to do so or feel heard when they try to express these feelings. I believe in harnessing the power of play (a child's language!) to give children a necessary outlet and room to practice these life skills. I utilize both direct and non-direct play techniques to help children prevent or resolve difficulties with which they are struggling. I believe in the healing power of play and the tremendous benefits it brings to children in therapy.

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 highly specialize in working with young children. I have extensive training and knowledge in early childhood development and use a combination of play therapy and EMDR when treating children. I believe trust is the most important component of therapy with kids and put a large emphasis on building the therapeutic relationship in the beginning. This allows kids to feel safe and benefit long term from the therapy process.

Children under 6 years of age are not yet developmentally ready to communicate their thoughts and feelings in words. Moreover, understand why they feel the way they feel and appropriately display their emotions. Children need to be nurtured, supported and guided navigating through uncharted territory. I provide a safe, warm environment for your child to learn about social interactions and express their emotions in a healthy manner. I offer play therapy, art therapy and animal assisted therapy, which promotes communication skills, helps escape stress and learn coping strategies. Moreover, parents and caregivers are involved in the therapeutic process.

With young children, you have to let go and play. Using synergetic therapy, we enter the world of play and within the play, one finds the needs of the child, and the parents are then able to see how they may help their children in positive ways. Sometimes, it's about going for a walk with the child and seeing what comes up. It's being present, open and able to get out of your way of thinking and opening to what the child is trying to show you through their play.

Specializing in Children and family therapy means you can be assured your child will be getting the special, specific attention of a therapist trained for the unique needs of children. Approaching a teenager's problems is quite different than working with a 5 or 6 year old. Every child in any given age range is different so therapy must be tailored individually to meet each child's needs.

Diamond Counseling provides therapy services for children ages 5 and older. Even though your child may not be able to articulate their need for therapy, they have other ways of letting you know. This can include their performance at school, behavioral issues at home or school that may be problematic, fear, depression, or having difficulty sharing what they are feeling. As your therapist, I work to engage your child in an emotionally safe manner. I also involve, you, the parent(s) whenever possible.

I love working with kids. I currently work as a Experiential Play Therapist (part-time) for a safe house in the Metro-Denver area. Children are much stronger, smarter,and capable than many adults give them credit for. Children speak through play and through play therapy they can being to get their voice and identity back. I am an advocate for children and their protection. All the children I work with receive the upmost care and education I can offer. Through a therapeutic relationship and safe environment your children can begin a process of healing and development that will set them on a path early in life towards freedom and significance.
