I work with children down to age 11, and my partner works with children down to any age. I primarily do individual therapy, while my partner works with the family. Those seeking this help may contact me, and I will let you know if your situation is something I can help with. If it is, we can proceed to schedule a first appointment. If it is not, I will help get you set up with my partner or another therapist who does the work you require.

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.

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.

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

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!
