Children are a wonderful gift to a family - the world is brand new to them, and they bring with them a unique way of seeing and experiencing life experiences for the first time. It can, however, be challenging sometimes to understand why they do the things that they do. Sometimes, it can even be frustrating when they don't meet our expectations, or worse, it seems they don't even want to try. I like to work with children and understand the issues they are dealing with, and ultimately help them respond more positively to the requests and direction of their parents and educators.

Like adults, a child’s behavior can change when (s)he is feeling stressed out. Common symptoms are suddenly seeming withdrawn, worried, stressed, sulky or tearful. Therapy can help kids improve their problem-solving skills and also teach them the value of seeking help. The kinds of problems that are addressed include: school stress (homework, bullying or peer pressure), family issues (parents fighting, impending divorce or other transitions like a loss, move or serious illness). If you feel your child might have an emotional or behavioral problem or needs help coping with a difficult life event, trust your instincts and call for a consultation.

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 have a great need to protect children. I feel most children are vulnerable to the complexities of the adult world. I feel children heal faster and grow emotionally regarding their age developmental goals when the parents are fully invested in taking care of themselves. I offer parent training classes, and psychotherapy for adults for whom themselves struggled as children, which in turn, helps their child to reach his/her maximum potential.

I am a retired teacher who taught parenting for twenty five years and have a child development background. I work with parents developing skills to add in helping with discipline, school performance, and social skills. I listen to children and use art and play therapy to identify unconscious problems that may be causing stress or that may have occurred outside of the parents knowledge or understanding.
