When I work with kids. I create a safe space for them to explore, feel in control, and build skills. I include parents with regular communication and at home techniques when needed. For working with children, I like to incorporate play and art as it makes therapeutic concepts and learning more accessible and relatable. I am comfortable using play therapy techniques without extending past my scope of practice. Art embraces visual, kinesthetic, and sensory parts of the brain which kids are more in tuned with, in comparison to adults. I adjust my language and use metaphors to make therapy age-appropriate.

I specialize in working with preteens and teens in order to help them cope with the large variety of challenges that face today's youth. Whether it be lack of self esteem, relocation to a new school, home and family problems or just general anxiety and depression. Eating disorders, self harm and substance abuse are prevalent among today's youth, and some early intervention can help counteract these negative influences.

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.

There are many different approaches to therapy with children. Common forms of therapy with children and adolescents include creative arts therapy and play therapy. These forms of therapy use extra tools such as creating and playing to let the client express themselves nonverbally. Therapy can be beneficial in helping young children/adolescents in exploring their thoughts and feelings in a safe space. Play therapy and art therapy can be beneficial tools to help children learn healthy coping skills. It can also give them the space to express themselves freely without fear of judgment or reprimanding.
