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.

Although I do not typically work directly with young children in therapy, I have experience working with their parents. I can help you as you transition to parenthood through pregnancy or adoption, adjust to life with a newborn, set appropriate limits and boundaries for behavior problems, and communicate more effectively in ways children can understand.

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.

Licensed Psychologist

Through biofeedback and other progressive modalities, we can interrupt that persistent OCD tendency, anxiety, or agitation, and restore sleep to the tired, angry, miserable child. Some things are best done by treating the neurons directly, and not through play therapy. We will work collaboratively with your regular play or talk therapist to ensure all integrates well in the child's care.

Do you have young children and find yourself having a hard time managing your emotions and setting boundaries consistent with your own values and upbringing? This is the challenge of many parents. We are often given well-intentioned parenting techniques that are difficult to implement. This is not because we are not intelligent, but because it is likely that you have not worked through your own emotional issues to be most effective for your child. Through therapy, we can help you face unresolved issues so that you can be a more calm and effective parent.

Working with young children is a unique skill. As young children are less able to verbalize their stressors than are older children and adults, I utilize non-verbal tools to help them both express their needs and help them to work on solutions. I use sand tray therapy in my office which gives children ownership over their "world" by using figurines and toys to play out their personal situations. I also use art therapy with young children; both free form and structured activities during the session. Playing games with a young child gives me a way to learn how they adapt to rules and limits as well as giving the child a way to experience some fun while in the midst of productive therapy
