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.

I work with children ages 9 and up. Most kids struggle significantly because they don't fully understand what they're feeling or why. What's worse is that many children aren't equipped to cope with everything life throws at them. For many children, psychological issues such as anxiety or depression frequently manifest as behavioral issues (difficulty concentrating, impulsivity, physical aggression, self-injury, difficulty learning, frequent meltdowns, night terrors, etc.) or as physical symptoms (stomach aches, vomiting, insomnia, frequent diarrhea, headaches, body aches, etc.). I have 7 years of experience and specialized trainings in working with children. Let me help!

I work with Anxious Children ages 10 and up. I find often children deny or try to hide their anxiety because it is beyond their ability to express it verbally. They have no words or experiences to be able to reference to say it. Their anxiety can be debilitating, especially if no one acknowledges it and openly talks about it. Children can have the same major feelings associated with anxiety that adults have such as: Constant and unreasonable fear, Feelings of loneliness, Sadness, Feeling of lack of power or helplessness, or Associated psychosomatic pains, such as: headache or digestive problems.

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

In 60031 - Nearby to Highwood.

I have counseled children from ages 5 through 12 in both individual and group settings for several years. My approach in working with young children is to create an atmosphere of trust, rapport and fun, and I use play therapy and art therapy to build that trust and rapport. I have helped more children in counseling playing board games, sports or anything that allows them to want to talk to me, because I care about who they are and what they need to do if they are to trust me and talk to me, with honest and sincerity, and with a gut-level trust that I care about them and want only the best for their lives.

Play Therapist

In 60618 - Nearby to Highwood.

I work with children as young as 18-months-old to assist them in overcoming a variety of challenges. Young children who do not yet have the words to describe what they are feeling often display their emotions through negative behaviors such as biting, hitting, or tantrums. Therapy can help decrease these behaviors by teaching children how work through their big feelings rather than being overcome by them.

Mental health conditions and disorders don't only affect adults. Children and teens can experience mental health problems too. In fact, research has now shown that most mental disorders follow a developmental course that typically starts early in life. This is true not only of conditions such as autism and ADHD, which are well known for having onset in childhood, but also for mood, anxiety, and psychotic disorders. So, many people who suffer from depression, social phobia, obsessive compulsive disorder, bipolar disorder, or schizophrenia showed signs before they were 24 years old. At Portrait Health Centers, therapy can greatly benefit individuals treatment for their children.

Understanding the unique needs of my younger clients, I offer therapeutic services specifically designed to help children and adolescents. Given that younger clients frequently have difficulty putting their feelings into words, children require therapists who understand and specialize in their developmental and emotional needs. Therapy with children and adolescents can take a variety of forms. Frequently I use play therapy, which relies upon using the language of a child’s imaginary play to provide a greater understanding of the young client’s emotions.
