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.

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.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Certified Play

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.
