Psychoanalytic work with young children is carried out through play therapy and/or other creative modalities such as art or expressive work. The work can support young children in understanding what it is they are experiencing as they grow into individuals within their families and communities. It provides a safe and creative space for a child to work through relational difficulties, learning difficulties, struggles to be attentive and to focus, a space for addressing fears, anxieties, and for naming and exploring feelings that impact behavior, sleep, attentiveness, and so on.

Is your child struggling with nightmares, tantrums, fear, bed wetting, incontinence, or trauma? We strongly feel that early intervention is the best method. Rather than allowing patterns and behaviors to become ingrained, we help children through expressive play therapy to process emotions, confront fears, and develop new skills/behaviors. We often find that parents are too close to their children to see when there are significant problems developing and it is the voice of teachers, friends, or other parents that make subtle suggestions about getting your child some additional resources. Pay attention to those suggestions they might see something you do not see. We are here to help!

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

Lois Muir-McClain, M.A., LPC, NCC

Licensed Professional Counselor

I work with children and adolescents ages 6-18. My approach is to let them participate in their therapy, so that they have a sense of control, and not that something is "being done to them." Every child is different, so my approach depends on their personality and behavior. With quiet, or defiant children, I may start by playing a board game or doing puzzles so we can get to know each other. With a more outgoing or verbal kid, they may have a lot to tell me and just want to talk. Still others respond to workbook exercises which I provide feedback on. Call me at 678-209-1348 to discuss my approach with children and also so I can find out more about your situation and what your child needs.
