Our certified educational therapist provides preventative services to children (5-7 years old) at risk of developing learning disorders (dyscalculia, dyslexia, dysgraphia, etc.) through early intervention using the SEARCH and TEACH programs. SEARCH is the scanning tool that assesses for learning struggles/differences. TEACH is an individualized therapy program based on the SEARCH findings. The SEARCH and TEACH program can identify any vulnerabilities that would lead to a later disability in reading. Once identified, the TEACH therapy specifically targets the areas of weaknesses to make them stronger. Once these rebuilt foundations for learning are in place, the child is able to move forward.

Although adults often see them as carefree, young children face struggles and stresses on a daily basis. Whether your child is dealing with test anxiety, bullying, peer pressure, or something else common to children, he or she can benefit from counseling. Additionally, if a young child is undergoing a significant transition or change, such as divorce or a family member’s sickness or death, counseling can help tremendously. Like adults, children need opportunities to express themselves, feel understood, and learn techniques to cope with life and the challenges it presents.

At Christ Centered Counseling we assist children, ages nine and older, with modifying their inappropriate behavior and with learning self-control skills. Children learn cognitive and behavioral skills as they begin to incorporate biblical principles into their lives.

My master's degree (Cornell) is in child development. I have worked more than 40 years with families, agencies and schools on ALL child problems, including birth defects and all developmental and behavioral problems. As a family therapist, I help parents figure out alternative ways to deal with child and family issues, including things like foster parenting, adoption, intrafamily strife, sibling battles, etc. I offer child assessments - IQ, learning disability, slow learning, and all behavior areas. I regularly work with pediatricians and other child specialists to help children of all ages.

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).

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.

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.
