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!

Children are our most precious beings. It can be challenging to raise kids and their is no manual or one size fits all approach. I work with both the parents & their children to address problematic issues in childhood development such as attention & focus, emotion regulation & socialization. I utilize art, play & animal assisted therapy to work with young children to allow them to feel more comfortable in opening up and expressing themselves.

When counseling young children, this specialization demands special skills, experience and talent. Our therapists not only address the issues that the specific child may be struggling with, whether that be ADHD, anxiety, depression, intellectual disabilities, or behavioral disorders, but also include the parents and other members of the family in treatment. This is essential to improving not only the child's health but the health of the family as a whole.

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.

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.

Parenting can lead to you to experience the greatest of joys and the deepest of valleys. The stresses of having young children can leave you depleted and overwhelmed. The challenges of some childhood disorders can leave you feeling powerless. My approach is to carefully assess the issues your child is facing and find appropriate solutions and support for your child.You will always be included and supported in comprehensive treatment goals. My goal is to have you once again experience joy and laughter as you raise your child. To accomplish this, I can utilize non-traditional alternative therapies such as art, play and equine assisted psychotherapy.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Families play an important role in children’s healing processes. The interaction between children’s problems and their families is always complex. Sometimes children develop problems as a way of signaling that there is something wrong in the family. Other times the entire family becomes distressed because the child’s problems are so disruptive. In all cases, children and families heal faster when they work together. The play therapist will make some decisions about how and when to involve some or all members of the family in the play therapy. At a minimum, the therapist will want to communicate regularly with the child’s caretakers to develop a plan for resolving problems as they are identified and to monitor the progress of the treatment.

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
