Helping you find wholeness...

In 10016 - Nearby to Cedarhurst.

Young children are not little adults but yet they are whole people. Children process things differently but also exhibit good resilience in many situations. In working with young children, it is especially important to work with them where they are at and in ways that allow them to relate tot he journey that is being made. When this is successful, the child not only is able to find wholeness and peace in the present but have a firm foundation for finding this in the future. A dimension of working with a child is working with the adults that are significant in that child's life. Christopher looks forward to this journety together with you.

We have four clinicians who specialize in children and adolescents. Anger, anxiety, school refusal, trauma, OCD, performance anxiety, social anxiety, separation anxiety, defiance, eating disorders, and even depression and self-injury are all areas of focus in our work with children. Our clinicians are well trained and understand how critical effective intervention as early as possible is, since children are forming behavioral patterns, relationships, and personality traits. We also understand how important the role of the parents and the entire family can be in supporting a child to change. Likewise, we recognize how much the entire family can benefit from experiencing the child's growth.

Social Confidence Life Coach

Is your child bullied or isolated from others? Is your child reluctant to go to school, has trouble making friends, or seems withdrawn and lonely? Many children have trouble with self confidence, anxiety or social skills. Improving self esteem, emotional regulation, and social skills deficits in the younger years reduces difficulties later. We all want the best for our children, and as a parent myself I know how it can hurt to watch your child suffer and not know how to help. Find out how your child can be helped by in-person counselling, online coaching, or online educational programs.

Being a new parent is often spoken of as if the main ingredient is joy, but this glosses over the complexities that women and men feel as they adjust to their roles as parents. More often than people would like to admit, the experience is trying and frustrating for mothers and fathers alike. Whether this is your first child, or your second or third time around, I can help you to get through the rough spots to the place we all want to be—confident, relaxed, in tune with your young ones, and in a stronger, more supportive alliance with your partner in childrearing.

Parents are oftentimes spilling over with questions, frustration and even hopelessness when they bring their young son or daughter into treatment. Their own stress tolerance and understanding of what’s going on have long since been exceeded. As for child, he or she is almost always skeptical or even fearful about sharing his or her inner world with an outsider. Therapy aims to strengthen and augment the parents’ efforts in raising their child or adolescent, not replace it.

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.

NYS Licensed Clinical Psychologist

I have worked with children from birth to 17 years in various modalities including individual, group, parent-child, and multi-family group therapy. Many parents have concerns related to behavioral difficulties at home and/or at school. While my goal is to help improve these behaviors and provide the child with tools and coping skills so that they can make better behavioral choices, I also believe it is important to involve the parent as much as possible in the therapy, so that the parent can maintain their authority and respect. In addition, I believe that it is important to focus on the parent-child relationship, to ensure that there are positive and playful interactions.

Small children aged 3 to 8 typically do not participate in family therapy because the vast majority of therapists consider such children too young to articulate their feelings or understand complex patterns of behavior. Butler thinks otherwise, as she perfects her skills using an approach called narrative therapy. Often described as “post-modern,” narrative therapy allows clients to put away old, tired versions of the stories they tell themselves [and everybody else] about their lives. Playing more to the clients’ strengths than their weaknesses, the approach urges clients to see themselves as much more than the presenting problem and to identify ways in which they are already taking steps

As a licensed family therapist, a former elementary school teacher and having raised a family, I have devotion and experience in addressing the needs of children. When parents contact me to provide therapy or anger management for their young children, I respond by bringing the parent or family into treatment as well.
