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.

At Home or Private Discreet Intensives

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.

Child Therapist

Beliza Perez, MA and Qualified Supervisor

Licensed Mental Health Counselor

Therapy with this age group requires a genuine, interactive and relevant approach. I meet each youngster where they are and learn about their likes and dislikes. I specialize in this age group and get along with youngsters because I still remember what it was like to get made fun of and feel very self conscious about my appearance and being liked at that age. I can relate to your child and work hard to understand their situation. I also educate parents on current issues youth face and how to approach their children so it's a communicative relationship. I help your child communicate better with you and help parents to feel comfortable engaging with their child.

Play Therapy is a child's ability to participate in counseling. Play allows children to express their thoughts, feelings and experiences. In other words, play is a child’s language. A variety of toys, games, arts and other activities are used to promote communication. Participation in play therapy gives children a way to learn positive coping and problem solving skills and think in different ways about their feelings or concerns.
