Except for truly special needs children, I find most of the work I do helping a family with a young child will involve the family. It's very hard to hear from a therapist that you may have to adjust how things happen at home. What does some therapist know about that child you've been living with, you may find yourself resentfully wondering. But hang on, take a breath, and give it a try. Sometimes the simplest answers are all that's needed. By way of example, take a look at that British nanny currently on the reality show circuit; such simple solutions, and such dramatic changes. With more complex problems, make sure you've gotten a clear diagnosis. Too many children are misdiagnosed.

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.

Wise parents bring young children in for counseling for both preventative mental health, and early intervention before problems become entrenched. I work successfully with young children and their families with eating disorders, behavioral problems, attention deficit disorder, school avoidance and school phobia, difficulties with peers, siblings, and parental relationships. I also work with children challenged or frightened by medical symptoms and problems, and help families to learn strategies to cope and transform the challenges into experiences that lead to strength and family cohesiveness.

Therapy Affordability Meter for Manhattan, NY

Some budgeting needed

While counseling can certainly be an expense for individuals and families in Manhattan, with proper budgeting, it is entirely do-able and the risk/reward is worth it. For some families, it may be difficult to sustain a commitment to therapy without proper insurance coverage. If this is you, ask your therapist about low cost options as practitoners in and around Manhattan may have flexibility or sliding scales. Low cost counseling and affordable therapy are also sometimes offered by listed city and university level clinics, check with your local Manhattan public health department.
