I work with children ages 6 and above. Empowerment is crucial in all therapy and what better time to learn self-empowerment than while still young. My doctoral dissertation involved Redecision Therapy. In this model the child ego state is where most therapeutic treatment is done. Children are not just small adults. Children can be both fragile and resilient. For children under the age of 6, I recommend play therapy, however I do not practice this mode of counseling. I teach the diagnosing of children in a graduate course I have taught about 8 semesters. Diagnoses is just a starting point however. Labels can be self-fulfilling and while important are wrought with dangers. Conservative wisdom.

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.

Children are the future! Children are impressionable too. It is amazing how intelligent and quick to pick up on things children are in the world. However, due to a child's development and their physical capacity, it does not mean they are able to digest or full understand what is happening. Real Talk engages with children in a manner that helps the child to recover to typical developmental trajectory, with the parents to understand where their child is in the development, and identify strengths and other factors to help the child develop optimally.

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.

The elementary age is a critical age for children. It is often the time we witness emotional difficulties, such as heightened anxiety and sadness in our children. I strive to create a safe place to discover different emotions and allow for healthy expression of feelings. I believe in the systems approach of working with the entire family to change interactions and unhealthy patterns in order for change to extend beyond the therapy room. Some areas that I work with include anxiety, depression, anger, self-esteem, AD/HD, eating disorders, school issues, family changes, autism spectrum disorders, social skills, peer interactions, self-harm, and more.

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.

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.

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.
