Working with young children in therapy is the challenge of language. Children do not have the therapeutic language to express their feelings. As a therapist working with young children, I use activities, unstructured play, games and observations. My job is to help translate that I'm learning into a positive and productive counseling session. Working with teens and pre-teens my focus is to explore social issues, family relationships, self image that's affecting their behavior. I spent many years working with at-risk youth with great success. I specially enjoy working with youth with a diagnosis of oppositional defiant disorder. Life skills counseling and coaching works well.

Finding a therapist who can work with young children is a challenge. Our therapist, Fred Theobald, has experience helping children who are dealing with issues of depression, adjustment to changes, coping with divorce, behavior problems at home, and social skills. By providing a warm, gentle approach, children are more likely to open up about what their experience is. He integrates parents into the therapy, so that they know how to work with their children, rather than against them. Contact us today to set up an appointment with Fred.

I see children five years old and up in my practice, and love helping them learn to see their potential and their innate gifts. I use directive play therapy to stimulate kids to think differently about their problems, cope with stress (including directions from authority figures) and enrich their inner lives. Teenagers will receive talk therapy, modified and tailored to their maturity level and challenges. Parenting consultations are an essential part of this process, so parents and caregivers can expect to be able to ask questions and get new parenting tools (and refinement of their existing ones).

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.

Young children can be the most challenging of all persons to get to open up and show you the truth of their world. It takes a truly well trained and dedicated person to work honestly and authentically for the child's benefit; not reading too much into and not missing details. I can utilize non-directive play therapy. I believe that small children communicate through play. I have experienced the healing that can felt by a child by showing a trusted adult via play, what is bothering them. Being part of the healing of Jesus' little lambs is my biggest privilege.
