I can work with children who are verbal from 6 or 7 and up. I can also treat them with EMDR. When I work with a young child, I insist that the parents see me seperately at least once to get a feel for the dynamics of the family and if there have been any losses, or traumas in the family. Having rased children myself I know how to help children feel "safe"and comfortable with me.

Children are amazing and are far more intelligent, emotional and in tune to their surroundings than we often give credit for! For example, children use play to express and reflect their internal thoughts and emotions - Play IS work for the growing child, and observation of play is one of the most effective ways to gain insight to a child's inner emotions. We accomplish this communication and connetion with your child through Play therapy. Play therapy is useful in addressing: * Social Challenges * Adjustment to separation from parents. * Unresolved or suspected trauma & abuse * Anxiety * Anger * Aggression * Sudden life changes * Behavioral issues. * Potty We treat children ages 1 &up

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.

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.

Are you worried about your child? Is your child stressed? I'm here to help! I specialize in working with youth ages 3-25. Young children tend to communicate through their actions, and it's the adults' job to figure out what they are saying. I support both the child and the parent. Even good parents need support sometimes! Play therapy and Theraplay (working on parent-child connection) are two helpful types of therapies I do to assist stressed kids. Counseling is one of the most loving things you can do for a child. Give me a call today and we can figure out together what is causing your child distress and start right away on making life more fulfilling for you and your child.

Play therapy or using play as part of the modality of communication in therapy is particularly useful when providing treatment to young children. Play is important to young children in that it is a vehicle to help them understand and process the world and others. When I see young children in therapy, I also work with the child's parents/care givers; provide psycho-education on various topics including parenting and normal childhood development; and discuss each child's strengths and challenges. Academic tutoring available.

I have worked with children parents and families for many years. Play therapy is an excellent way to help children process difficult emotions. Play therapy is used with children aged 3 through 11 and provides a way for them to express their experiences and feelings through a natural, self-guided, self-healing process. As children’s experiences and knowledge are often communicated through play, it becomes an important vehicle for them to know and accept themselves and others.

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!

Although I do not work with very young children, I very much enjoy working with adolescents and their families. I typically require parents to be involved at times when working with teenagers. Academic and athletic stress, sibling and friendship issues, puberty and body image challenges and substance experimentation are all issues with which I can help. Often our children are the barometers of other issues occurring in either the nuclear or extended family and broadening the field of vision to these domains can be useful in working with adolescents.
