I am a retired teacher who taught parenting for twenty five years and have a child development background.

I offer counseling services for young children. While it may be difficult for children to identify or discuss their emotions, different types of therapy, including play therapy and behavioral therapy. Young children may have difficulty at home, in school or with their peers, and this can be challenging to manage. My role is to give children an open and safe environment to build a working relationship, so that they may come to gain trust and the ability to express their feelings in their own way.

My approach to working with young children is unique, because I believe that the child's dysfunction is reflection of an imbalance in the family system. Therefore, my work is with the parent(s) of the child in order to restore harmony in the family and peace for the child. Please feel free to call for my information!

Child Therapist

Margaret Burton, MS

Pre-Licenced Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of Riverhead

Do you have a strong willed child? I can help. Children react to everyday stressors in their own way and no two children react the same way to the same stressful event. The skill of self-regulation is a coping mechanism all children need to better navigate their worlds. I utilize cognitive behavioral and play therapies to teach these skills to both the child and their parents. Parents will then reinforce these life changing skills to enable their children to have a more positive outcome. Together, we can lay the foundation for a healthy happy child both at home and in school.

Research shows trying to just “fix the kid” does not generally work. The family should be involved if at all possible. I made it a special point to learn the specific strategies and techniques for this population as I went through my schooling. To this day I have approx. one decade of experience in working with this population, and I look forward to continuing to work with children at the youngest ages, but with family involvement.

When a child struggles, a parent struggles's 10x more. Sometimes, we just don't know what to do make it better. I can help. Issues children experience such as, anger, low self-esteem, being bullied, prolonged nightmares, discipline problems are best addressed when they occur. Together, we will help your child work through the problem. I believe you, the parent are the best resource for solutions. Who knows your child better than you? I will provide you support and methods/tools to continue helping your child at home. I incorporate Sand Tray and Play therapy techniques in our sessions, as these work well with young children who have difficulty communicating what's bothering them.

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 Professional Counselor

I've had a ton of experience working with children as a former Karate instructor, Residential Treatment Shift Coordinator, and most recently as a clinician for Yale Universities Intensive In-Home Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Service (IICAPS). There we took a systemic approach. Speaking to teachers, other family members, doctors, and looking at any sort of evidence we could find would generally provide outstanding results in the child's prognosis
