I work with children from elementary age and up by building on their strengths, consulting with parents to help integrate the best structure into their lives, helping them expand their ways of expression through play, using expressive therapies and advocating for them when needed in the schools. I provide them with opportunities to practice the skills I build with them in our therapy sessions. I use cognitive behavioral strategies, expressive therapies and body work to engage with them and build opportunities to learn new skills.

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.

Children's symptoms of anxiety and depression, in some cases, can be associated with them feeling responsible for, or caught up in the middle of parental conflict. Children under the age of 5 may cry, act out, regress, or try to distract parents. Children age 6 to middle adolescence may try to intervene in the conflict. Cues that parental conflict is too high are: repeated attempts to reduce conflict, withdrawal, or exhibiting acting out behavior. Family therapy is crucial in minimizing the negative feelings for children who are experiencing distress and emotional pain. The strength of family and child therapy is bringing together the family system so the child can feel safe and secure.

Children are referred by either Parents, School, Department of children and Family Services, Doctors and the court. first I have to find out why the child has been referred to my private practice. Gather the history the fist session. Some children can seat and talk to therapist other I use play therapy to stimulate conversation. In the course of sessions I also use behavioral modification which will match with the behavioral modification at home with the child's parents.
