Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

In 33401 - Nearby to Palm Beach Shores.

As a marriage and family therapist, I see the innocence of a child as the foundation for well-being. I work with the child's strengths in the context of family, school, friends, divorce, abuse, and other situations which may impact the emotional health of the child. Everything is in relationship to other forms of behavior. We derive a fuller understanding of these relational patterns from a brief comparison of other scenarios. Looking at the bigger picture can lead to a happier story ending.

Youth Connection is an intensive program for those individuals who suffer from addiction, but are also faced with the challenges of young adulthood. Teenagers and young adults, 18 – 25 years of age, who suffer from drug or alcohol addiction often find themselves dealing with additional pressures. They may have trouble with their workload at school, associate with delinquent peers, suffer from a lack parental supervision, or just generally exhibit feelings of inadequacy, poor self-image, or even depression. They have not learned the necessary skills that would otherwise enable them to cope with everyday life situations.

When dealing with young children and their issues, parents often find themselves at a loss. After all, having a baby doesn't mean you get an instructions manual! Even if you're a parent who reads all the self-help books, you may still find it discouraging and start to lose steam, wondering if these suggestions are really going to work. When working with the issues of young children, I focus on helping you as parents learn the most effective ways to interact with your child, so that you can help them to grow into emotionally intelligent adults. Emotional intelligence is our ability to read other people’s signals and react appropriately to them and influences our chances for success in life.

So many child behavior and parenting problems simply vanish, once we understand a few basics. Children are not small adults, and should not be expected to respond the way adults do. Children, like everyone else, respond beautifully to praise, love and reward. By contrast, punishment creates only resentment and the motivation to not get caught. All the particulars flow from these simple truths. Even the most defiant and disrespectful children can quickly come around, if we simply pay a little more attention to connecting praise and rewards to desirable behavior, and withholding them for unwanted behavior.

Licensed Mental Health Counselor

I provide counseling services to children ages ten and up. I have worked with teens in addiction treatment centers. Working with children and teens who have experienced trauma I find the use of Sandtray therapy useful in helping to breakdown the walls. When vocalizing the trauma is difficult, the sensory approach has proven to be most useful. I work with teens whose parents are divorcing, and with teens who are changing schools, or going off to college and are experiencing difficult with the changes.

I currently see many of my young clients in order to provide psychological and educational testing. I provide gifted testing as well as testing for educational and behavioral issues. I have worked within the school system for over 20 years so I am able to help parents to navigate the school system and to better understand their child's IEP goals and accommodations.

Therapy for children involves full analysis of issues which can include, but not limited to; psychoeducation on child development, parenting practices, blended family topics, positive coping skills in home and school, academy success, treatment of ADHD, sensory processing disorders, disruptive mood-dysregulation disorder, anxiety, depression including bereavement, bullying and social skills/communication development. Common to children and teens are peer pressure, broken family or friend relationship issues, and technology lifestyles that can overshadow and deplete critical "ages and stages" of healthy development. Child/ teen therapies are best incorporated with the caregivers.

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.
