Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Certified Play

In 13057 - Nearby to Genoa.

As a certified child centered play therapist, I am trained and enjoy working with children ages 3 and up. Using play therapy for children is like talk therapy for adults.. it is the best way children have to communicate their struggles and work through their feelings. A critical part of working with children is keeping communication going with you, the parent. Part of my treatment approach includes regularly scheduled consultations with you. I have designated play therapy space at my Syracuse and Rome offices, and look forward to talking with you about your child.

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.

children and adolescents are at a different developmental stage than adults and sometimes have a hard time feeling comfortable expressing themselves. This is when they are trying to figure out who they are and learning how to safely express themselves. The family can also be involved in their child's therapeutic process and have concerns to work on as well.

Children struggle with the stresses and hurts of life just like the rest of us. Often the recipients of collateral damage, they are dealing with very confusing and upsetting life events that need to be made sense of. Because they are cute and they giggle and play in the backyard, we forget that they are hurting from the problems in their lives that they just don't understand. So with children, we have to meet them where they are and talk their language. The language of children is playing and they often have a lot to say, if we can only listen to their stories and concerns. Play therapy offers children their voice with someone who is listening. We want to help.

Licensed Creative Arts Therapist, Provisional

Available for Online Therapy

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.

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.
