I earned my Ph.D. in Educational Psychology with a minor in Pediatric Psychology. As a result, I am well versed in developmental and educational concerns of children and adolescents. With young children, depending on the presentation, I often utilize both individual and family therapy to grow and develop healthy coping skills and behaviors. As a parent you know how important it is for you to feel included, additionally, treatment tends to be more effective the more parent(s) are involved. I provide treatment in children and adolescents with separation anxiety, picky-eating, depression, learning difficulties, ADHD, bed-wetting, behavior difficulties, trauma, bullying, and identity issues.

Stress, pressure, chaos, bullying - children are deeply affected by realities way beyond their control or ability to manage or understand. The effects of family tensions, strife, discord and conflict can manifest in physically, emotionally and behaviorally. A tummy ache, difficulty sleeping, acting out, more anxiety or anger than normal are all signs that a child is experiencing more stress than they can handle. Using age-appropriate language and therapies, I provide immediate symptom relief that helps the child and the parent understand what is causing the symptoms and what to do about them in 1 to 3 sessions.

As a parent and grandparent, I have a special place in my heart for helping children. Most of my work with children is done in conjunction with their parents or guardians. A combination of play therapy, expressive therapies and solution-focused brief therapy is helpful with a wide range of children's issues. For school-age children and teens, techniques such as CBT and mindfulness training, which their grownups can also learn to use so they can be helpful coaches for their children, are also great tools. Behavior problems, grief, adjustment to life changes like divorce or remarriage, anxiety or depression, are all areas where children can benefit from help and support. Please call today!

Young children learn through play. There are many therapeutic techniques that are used through play to help a child express themselves and figure out what is going on internally or externally. A child will also learn to express themselves in emotional, verbal and physcial constructive ways. One of the first things I will do seeing your child is create a relationship that is Honest, Open, Purposeful and Engaging. A child who sees me will laugh, have fun, feel comfortable and learn how they are in control of their behavior. Parents are also important part of therapy for children. Parents will receive education and skills that will assist their child with success.

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

Alicia Eddy, Ed.M, M.A.

Licensed Mental Health Counselor

Within driving distance of Pinellas Park

I provide therapeutic services to children struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma, behavioral issues, and/or ADHD. Children often display behavioral issues at school or home when they are experiencing negative feelings such as sadness, fear, or anger. When working with children, I use art, sand-tray, and play therapy techniques to help them express feelings, learn positive communication skills, and positive social behaviors. Parents play a vital role in the therapeutic process by learning new parenting skills and positive communication skills to help support their child through their difficulties.

Children are often misunderstood by grown-ups because they tend to express their feelings and perceptions through actions instead of words, and grown-ups often find these actions challenging or troublesome, which in turn leads to more misunderstanding. My approach with a child is thus to develop a therapeutic rapport, so the child can understand that he or she won't be judged personally for his or her actions or difficulties. This encourages the child to express him- or herself honestly and to appreciate counseling as an opportunity. I often also work closely with the parent(s) or guardian(s) since they play such an important part in the child's life and in how that child thinks and feels.
