Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

Baltimore, Maryland 21211 | 410-702-5138

Young children who are dealing with emotional distress, often expressed in behavior, will look to primary caregivers (parents, adoptive parents/guardians) for emotional support and nurturance. The young person’s emotional/behavioral symptoms could be co-occurring with or caused by differences in parenting styles, adjustment to divorce, co-parenting arrangements, death/loss/ grief adjustments, and other stressors in the home, school, or environment. While I do not provide individual therapy for young children, I offer my skills, training and experience in family therapy to help parents/caregivers foster an effective, calm, at-ease rapport with their children, sometimes including family therapy with children present.

We use sandbox and play therapy to provide the young with alternatives in creative expression, and to let them know that there is a safe holding place where their fears can be confronted, and respected. Often, we also help the children best by helping the parents find peaceful ways to reach common ground on child-rearing practices and responses. The most crucial element is to treat a child, not a diagnosis or condition.

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 Counselor, Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor, Registered Play Therapy- Supervisor

Baltimore , Maryland 21286 | 4434709226

As a registered play therapist, I truly believe play is the language of the child. This is how children communicate their everyday world and how they resolve their problems. I offer a play room full of polarities so that children have access to both the good, bad, and anything in the middle. I use my skills as a counselor to help track children's emotions and encourage them to be more vocal when experiencing these emotions. In my playroom, children can say whatever they want and do almost anything they want.
