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.

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.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 60463 - Nearby to Lyons.

I work with children as young as age four. In addition to family therapy, play therapy is the method I use to engage younger children on an individual basis. Younger children may have difficulty expressing their thoughts and feelings in words, but can express them through drawing, painting, storytelling, games, as well as symbolic play with puppets, dolls, etc. Play therapy activities depend on the child's developmental age and the therapy goals. Although I nearly always use play therapy techniques with younger children, play therapy may also be appropriate with many older children.

I am incredibly passionate about working with children as young as 3 years old, up to adolescence and the teenage years. I work with children, and collaborate with their loved ones, regarding various difficulties. I help children with the following concerns: depression, anxiety, school-stress, familial-stress, survivors of trauma, survivors of sexual assault, PTSD, grief and loss, and life-transitions/adjustments. With very young children, I utilize child-centered play therapy, especially with children going through trauma, divorcing parents, and other incredibly sensitive situations. I also strive to incorporate art therapy as well; using effective interventions for each unique child.

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.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Psychoanalyst

In 60025 - Nearby to Lyons.

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.
