Licensed Clinical Social Worker

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.

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.

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.

Most of my clinical mental health experience has been with children and adolescents in a variety of settings and modalities. I enjoy working with children and adolescents, as they radiate hope and wrestle with the world in such a way that is sincere and vulnerable. With children, I hold to the therapeutic modalities of child-centered therapy (in art and in play), narrative therapy, Jungian therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and art therapy. Art therapy may be used in conjunction with all of the therapeutic modalities, being versatile in expression. I hold to being trauma-informed, as trauma may manifest in various ways.
