Young children express themselves differently than adults, and so I will provide a safe and caring space for your child to explore their difficult emotions through play. You can also expect to participate in sessions with me and your child at times, as I believe that involving the parent(s) is key to helping children overcome their emotional struggles.

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.

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.

Play Therapist

In 60618 - Nearby to Westmont.

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.

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 Professional Clinical Counselor, Registered Art Therapist

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 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.

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.

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.
