Having a troubled child can be very upsetting, whether the child seems worried, sad, angry, or oppositional. My work focuses on alleviating the child's suffering as well as helping the parent learn strategies to feel more effective in dealing with their child's problems. In helping young children, I usually work with the child (through talking therapy and/or play therapy,) the parent (through exploring behavioral and communication strategies) and the parent-child relationship (through assisting the family members to communicate better and collaborate on solutions to the problems.) My approach is eclectic and includes psychodynamic, behavioral and cognitive behavioral element

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.

Children have a developmental need to play. Children of divorce experience grief and loss and benefit from play and recognition of feelings & emotions.My work helps reinforce attention, focus & "on task" behavior. We do role plays/ improvs, creative arts, music & sensory integration. I assist children in recognition & practice of appropriate social skills to increase peer success at home & at school. I collaborate with teachers,school staff and parents to utilize a team-approach. Students who have academic challenges most often experience anxiety, depression and/or social struggles, I work with the family to enhance skill deficits and provide support to child and their family.

Children are a gift and a treasure. It never surprises me to hear something utterly unique come from one of my young clients. As a therapist I look to the strengths of the child and the family. I utilize play therapy and structural family therapy to help untangle difficult and challenging subject matter. Often times the child knows and reveals so much about the family and the special ways in which the family interacts with one another. One of the benefits of working with children in therapy is that I am able to identify with the child and family areas to strengthen and support. I work to encourage parents to be advocates and partners in setting clear rules, boundaries and consequences.

My approach to counseling children (ages 11 and up) begins with family therapy to determine to what extent parents need to be involved. I establish trust and a safe environment for children to enable them to share their issues and concerns. I also work with parents to help them understand their children's needs and develop an environment conducive to meeting those needs.

You know when something is wrong with your child. It can be a divorce, a school or family problem. But, if your child is hurting, then your are hurting. Children require a therapist with special skills. I have extensive training in many forms of play therapy. Children are not able to communicate in the usual way. With play, their defenses are down and they can relate in a natural way. We have games, sand trays, art supplies, etc that are age appropriate for your child. As a mother of four children I understand your concerns and will do my best to help your child heal from the stresses they are experiencing. I know how precious your child is to you.

It is essential to properly identify children who need support early on. When children are expressing behavioral, social, academic or interpersonal problems, they are begging for help. Proper help begins with understanding why the child is expressing symptoms. Psychologists on our staff have strong backgrounds in child development, neuropsychology, psychological testing, clinical and school psychology.

The most malleable of us all. Therefore, that segment of our society that can be most easily molded, sculpted. Since the sculptist is almost always the parents their cooperation in the therapy process cannot be emphasized enough. They are makers or breakers of it. That is why the creation of a trusting alliance with them is critical. However, respecting the boundaries and confidentiality too of the child's work (therapy) with myself. The child is allowed to express, within reason, their individuality. Encouragement is given for adaptive risk-taking and self-soothing mechanisms. I create, a safe, predictable, environment.

When a child is presented for treatment barring organic causes, the first question one asks, " Who has the problem?" Is it the child, parents, school or the interactions of all?" After interviewing the child and parents (conducted in both family and individual sessions), I present the parents with an evaluation. Dependent on the severity of the child's problems and the ability of the parents to mobilize their parenting skills, it is decided to address the presenting problems with individual sessions as well as family sessions. My attempt is to minimize the treatment of the child and enable the parents to learn to parent through "Creative Loving" (a program that Dr. PItta created).

Often times children are struggling with issues in their own life and cannot communicate their need for help. It is a parent's job to recognize when something is not right. Helping children identify problems and work through them is a skill that lasts a lifetime. My work with children is based on trust. Only when they feel safe will they begin to reveal their inner thoughts and fears. This is achieved mainly through play therapy and parent child sessions.

When our children are hurting, it is a helpless feeling for parents. Therapy can help your child to express his/her feelings through play therapy. Therapeutic board games will help your child to be more forthcoming during session. Therapy can help your child to improve his/her ability to cope with feelings and circumstances that can be overwhelming to children, such as divorce, peer pressure, victimization, or being a perpetrator or victim of bullying.

I have worked with children from birth to 17 years in various modalities including individual, group, parent-child, and multi-family group therapy. Many parents have concerns related to behavioral difficulties at home and/or at school. While my goal is to help improve these behaviors and provide the child with tools and coping skills so that they can make better behavioral choices, I also believe it is important to involve the parent as much as possible in the therapy, so that the parent can maintain their authority and respect. In addition, I believe that it is important to focus on the parent-child relationship, to ensure that there are positive and playful interactions.
