Children can be pretty adaptable, however there are times when therapy can be an effective tool in helping children cope with difficult feelings or situations. If your child is having sudden angry outbursts, or if their grades drop in school this could be a sign that they are struggling. Our therapists can help you to identify what is bothering them and help your child to learn coping skills to use when they are feeling angry or afraid. We will also work with you, the paren, to learn techniques to use at home which supports your child while not impairing your ability to be an effective parent.

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.

My approach to working with young children is essentially non-directive play therapy, allowing the child to have freedom of expression, learning to use language to express feelings, and resolving concerns such as separation anxiety, sleepwalking and bad dreams, and other behavioral changes. There are times when it may be indicated to work in family systems model, or to address a problem that may be affecting the whole family system. I do not handle custody cases, and my work is intended to help heal the family system when necessary.
