I have 20 years experience working with children experiencing a variety of life stresses. I use art and play to help children express their emotions and explore solutions. I meet with the child then include the parents to ensure everyone is on board with improving the emotional health of the family home. Home should be a safe place where you can relax and rejuvenate to conquer the world. Educating children and their parents about emotional and behavior solutions, lets them talk through problems to enjoy each other.

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 believe that being a parent is a very tough job. Parents often feel powerless and seek to control their children with shame, guilt and fear. I believe that children need firm, consistent rules and clear, transparent rewards and consequences to guide their behaviours. I am very creative in designing methods of child management that are particular to your child and your family.

Working with children involves a combination of art, play and novelty. A child's way of problem solving is very different from an adult's. One element that is key, is to ask the child how they view the problem and what they think would make it better.Children are creative and spontaneous and often have similar solutions to their problems. It is important for the therapist to support their ingenious and inventive resolutions. The next step is communicating these ideas to parents and to help them put it into action.

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. If I can support you to provide the support for your young child, that's the smoothest route for them. While I may be fun to meet with, they really want you to guide them through the difficult terrains. However, if it makes sense to meet with them I draw on my rich training and experience in expressive arts, which includes the use of play therapy to faciliate change and healing in young children.
