I have taken some wonderful classes by Nancy Reidel-Bowers, known for her contributions to the world of family and child play therapy. We learned in depth knowledge about child development, and applied that to relevant tools of therapy to engage the child at their level. Creative approaches: sand tray work with miniature figurines, music, drama, clay, art, painting, games, and so on. I played Wii video games for an entire session with a client once. He talked and laughed more than I had ever heard before; it was a beautiful moment in our relationship and in his therapy moving forward. I look forward to working with you and your child.

When our young children are struggling, the best route for support is to work with you, the parents first. Together we explore the challenges your little one is up against and we can discover new ways to support your child. We can support you to help your child navigate the challenges they are up against. Your relationship with your child will grow as you grow your confidence to guide them through the difficult terrains. If it makes sense to meet with your child in the process we will, but through our experience supporting you, the parent is the most effective route!

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.

Children can be impacted by transitions and traumas in their lives. When they don’t know how to cope, the stress can build up. I provide safe and compassionate counselling where the child can talk about their feelings without the fear of being judged, better understand why they feel this way and learn strategies to move forward. I help children express their feelings and emotions through the lenses of play and art therapy combined with cognitive behavioural therapy for children. examples of common problems that can be addressed in my therapy: -bullying -loss/grief separation/divorce -depression, anxiety and panic -attachment disorder -behavioural challenges -learning difficulties

Childre love to play and feel joy. However, often they do not know how to express their unhappy, angry scare or sad feelings. They do not know to tell their parents and friends about what is going on inside them They may seem to erupt like a volcano or become silent and withdrawn. it is at times liek these that giving them an opportuingty to talk, play,sing and even use their body to release feelings is so helpful. We use a variety of techniques to help them feel better. Invite us to join with you in this journey.

I conduct both assessment and therapy for children and adolescents. For therapy, I use a combination of Art and Play Therapy to help children work through personal difficulties and developmental issues. I encourage parents to join our sessions to help establish and create a safe explorative environment. In addition, beginning at age 3, I offer comprehensive assessment with differential diagnosis for developmental delays, cognitive delays, autism spectrum disorders, and other childhood disorders.
