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.

There just isn't anything much worse than hearing that your beautiful child has been identified by a teacher or even another mother-father as having a "problem".Most parents respond,at first, with denial. It is just too difficult to accept that there may be a real issue brewing or that one has already taken hold. I am highly skilled at diagnosing all forms of psychologically based childhood disorders but even more important, as a mother who has raised a special needs child I know how to help. I also know when a child has been misdiagnosed and a bit of parent training is needed. I work as an advocate in the schools combined with home visits to observe and direct parents how to cope.

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

In 06880 - Nearby to Selden.

You know when something is wrong with your child. It can be a divorce, a school or family problem. But, if your child is hurting, then your are hurting. Children require a therapist with special skills. I have extensive training in many forms of play therapy. Children are not able to communicate in the usual way. With play, their defenses are down and they can relate in a natural way. We have games, sand trays, art supplies, etc that are age appropriate for your child. As a mother of four children I understand your concerns and will do my best to help your child heal from the stresses they are experiencing. I know how precious your child is to you.

Our program is specialized to gain a detailed understanding of the child's developmental state as well as their parent's parenting stressors.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 06880 - Nearby to Selden.

My approach to counseling children (ages 11 and up) begins with family therapy to determine to what extent parents need to be involved. I establish trust and a safe environment for children to enable them to share their issues and concerns. I also work with parents to help them understand their children's needs and develop an environment conducive to meeting those needs.

Licensed Professional Counselor

In 06880 - Nearby to Selden.

Working with children ages five and up who are experiencing bullying, social alienation, learning difficulties, self esteem corrosion, and conflicted feelings related to divorce, is a primary focus of my 30+ years of clinical practice. Age appropriate sessions involve both talk play and artistic therapeutic techniques while providing practical tools for effective communication. In a collaborative partnership I include the parents, teaching them effective parenting strategies for each unique child. My goal is to educate parents to become change leaders in their homes. My objective is to provide the family with the skills and tools to achieve ongoing success in their home environment.
