Licensed Mental Health Counselor, Registered Play Therapist

Children often struggles to come up with the words to express their wants, needs, thoughts, and feelings. My use of play therapy and sand tray therapy facilitates a way for children to express their feelings in a non-verbal way that gets results. I understand that play is essentially words for kids and can help them make sense of their word and what is going on in it. I have had success in helping numerous kids deal anxiety, depression, OCD, low self esteem, social pressures, bullying, divorce, and much more. It would be my honor to help your child too.

While I do not work exclusively with young children it has been my experience that often times the parents of children with special needs benefit greatly from seeking therapy for themselves. It can be challenging to raise children who have one or more diagnoses that interfere with their ability to learn, behave, or both. Taking time out to take care of yourself will help you be the best parent you can for your child. Family therapy may also be beneficial if there are other children in the home. Please contact me and we can discuss how individual or family counseling can help give you the strength, resilience, and patience your child needs..

I work with children from age 4 and above using some play therapy and other age-appropriate interventions and coping skills to help with attention issues, social skills, anger management, defiance, discipline, and family issues, as well as anxiety or other mental health issues. Games, worksheets, and other age-appropriate tools are sometimes used to help learn skills and get the point across in a way that the child can understand.

Psychotherapy can help children of all ages struggling with a variety of issues including anxiety, depression, trauma, abuse, social phobia, adjustment issues, academic problems, conflict with peers or family members, separation or divorce of parents, substance abuse, identity issues and sexual issues. During the first step, the therapist works hard to build rapport with the child. Rapport building may involve talking, playing games, drawing or anything else that encourages the child to build a relationship with the therapist. Over time, the child will identify and process feelings in addition to implementing solutions to the presenting issues. Call today to begin.

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 treatment interventions very often involve parents and caretakers at some point. Disruptive Behavior Problems are most prevalent, specifically Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD) and Conduct Disorder (CD), however fear, anxiety social issues also rank highly. In my practice, I use behavior therapy (parent management training), both individual and group cognitive behavioral therapy as well as multisystemic therapy. MST is goal-oriented and focuses on helping the caregivers manage and nurture their challenging children more effectively. As your child's therapist I become intimately involved in every aspect of their life and social network including peers, school and family.
