5225 Katy Freeway, Suite 103, Houston, Texas 77007 | 8325592622

We provide child counseling and play therapy to help children with emotional expression, coping skills, behavior change and develop healthy self-esteem. We tailor our approach to the needs of your child. Children often are not able to express what they are feeling or going through in words. Through play, children have a language to express what they are experiencing and going through. Play therapy allows children to change the way they think about, feel toward, and resolve their concerns. New skills are learned, which can be taken to the home and school environment. Parents are also taught ways to reinforce new skills at home.

As a family therapist, I find it helpful to engage the entire family in the session. This may include parents, step-parents or grandparents that are acting as primary caretakers. During the session, all family members are encouraged to participate. I engage children who lack verbal skills through games and play. This reduces anxiety for the child and promotes a therapeutic connection. Using play as a means of getting parents and children to express their feelings can supplement talk therapy and may accelerate the progress toward client driven goals.

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.

Therapy Affordability Meter for Houston, TX

Some budgeting needed

While counseling can certainly be an expense for individuals and families in Houston, with proper budgeting, it is entirely do-able and the risk/reward is worth it. For some families, it may be difficult to sustain a commitment to therapy without proper insurance coverage. If this is you, ask your therapist about low cost options as practitoners in and around Houston may have flexibility or sliding scales. Low cost counseling and affordable therapy are also sometimes offered by listed city and university level clinics, check with your local Houston public health department.
