Young children change so quickly. You think you have it figured out and something new appears. Whether you have a small question or a major concern, checking in with a therapist is a great idea. My work with young children usually involves working with the parents, too. For children under 5, as your child’s first teacher, you can be the best change agent for him/her. For older children, play therapy and talking therapy, plus periodic consultations with parents and teachers, if necessary, can help to make life at home calmer and happier as your child develops in positive ways.

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 manifestations of hard to verbalize emotional and developmental concerns.

As much as we love our children there are days when their behaviors are just out of bounds. At times like those it is difficult for parents to see past the outward behavior and have the calmness and patience to get to understand the underlying problem. Young children have an especially difficult time articulating feelings. They are much better at acting them out. Play Therapy is a wonderful way to help a young child express his or her feelings. My Play Therapy room is equipped with a variety of games and toys children can use as a means of self expression. As a therapist, I guide and support each child on the path toward healing. Parent involvement in the healing process is critical.

Licensed Independent Marriage and Family Therapist Supervisor

Many therapists share they use play therapy in their practice with children, but have not taken further training on its use in therapy. I am a Registered Play Therapist Supervisor, which means I completed 3 years and 3000 additional hours of practice after licensure, clinical supervision, consistent continued education courses, and significant focus in at least two play therapy evidence based practices. I utilize Child Centered Play Therapy, Filial Therapy, Digital Play Therapy, and Prescriptive Play Therapy to address children's needs in addition to creative arts therapies (Drama Therapy, Art Therapy interventions).

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 love working with young children and their parents, as behaviors are not yet ingrained, and parents can learn new skills to help manage their child's symptoms. It also helps to learn what is expected developmentally so that parents don't get overly anxious about children meeting expectations. Today's world can be stressful for young children as well, and children also feel the stress that their parents' experience. We can explore coping skills and self-care for parents and children alike. We can also work through communications skills and help children become more emotionally skilled to manage symptoms.
