Psychotherapist; Registered Clinical Social Worker

I work with children 5 years of age and older. Most challenges facing children are situational-environmental. My approach is based on what children require and respond to: respect, patience, calm and playful resourcing. Young children usually know exactly what their troubles are and need a safe, supportive, opportunity to express themselves. Given secure trust, they are creative and open about collaborating toward realistic solutions. Essential to my work with any child is engagement with their primary care-takers as well as relevant collaterals involved, to ensure that a lasting "circle of care" is established.

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.

I have worked with children as young as 5 years old who have seperation anxiety, been abused, have FASD, or come from divorced and/or seperated families. These little people are sponges of their environment and display through spontaneous action what they are trying to cope with in their life. My approach is to help them cope with their emotions through play/art, breathing/relaxation exercises, and listening to their story in order to make sense of thier reaction. It is also imperative that I bridge the gap between keeping the child's confidence while communicating to their caregiver how to help the child on a daily basis.

With my many years in education I am able and skilled at working with and relating to children and adolescents. Childhood should be a time for healthy growth and development. For many children and teens, it is a time of great emotional stress. Children react to stress in many ways including withdrawal and acting out behaviors at home and school. I am here to help children and families learn the life skills necessary to be successful and happy. Family counseling may help to promote better relationships and understanding within your family. There is no shame in needing support. Family counseling during a divorce, or a child experiencing trauma can help all of you find some peace.

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 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.
