Child Therapist

Scott Boyd, M.A., LPCC, CACII

LPCC, CACII

Within driving distance of Applewood

I believe I have a natural skill in dealing with teens and young adults. I have practiced therapy in a middle school and high school setting as well as an outpatient facility for young adults suffering from addiction and mental health issues. I believe the ability to have a genuine relationship with my clients, regardless of their age, is the cornerstone to an effective partnership. I did my fair share of suffering as a teen/young adult and believe it has benefited me when working with teens/young adults suffering through their own problems currently.

Counselor

Child counseling addresses the sensitive cognitive, social, and emotional development that is happening at this age. School-age children quickly develop the ability to understand their own complex emotions as well as the emotions and intentions of their family and friends. This "emotional literacy" is greatly enhanced through working with a trained child therapist. Nicholas offers child therapy to children and teens in the Fort Collins and surrounding Northern Colorado areas.

Child Therapist

Sue McCullough, LCSW

Licensed Clincial Social Worker

Within driving distance of Applewood

Young children do not have the verbal skills to explain what is bothering them and may become angry or depressed. I communicate with children at the appropriate age level using books, games, and drawing. As we play together, your child will feel safe and find a way to express feelings not easily expressed because of lack of words. I will help your child develop new coping and verbal skills that will allow expression of feelings. I will, or course, communicate with you as the parent and make suggestions to help you interact better with your child

Child Therapist

Dennis H. Harris, MA

Registered Psychotherapist

Within driving distance of Applewood

I use non-directive, directive and sand play therapy when working with children. Given that younger children's brains are in a process of development and many of the more complex cognitive skills don't develop until later, play is the most effect method of learning to solve problems and process emotions or issues. As a school counselor I worked with families, teachers and children. I have trained as a synergistic play therapist, a person centered play therapist and in sand play.

Child Therapist

Claudia Trevithick, ATR-BC, Registered Psychotherapist

Board-Certified Art Therapist, Registered Psychotherapist

Within driving distance of Applewood

As an art therapist, sandplay therapist and play therapist, I believe that the young child's most natural way of expressing him/herself is through play, I usually let the child take the lead, often working in metaphor through puppets, drawing, and sandplay. I first do an intake with the parents. After assessing and working with the child, I will include family or parent/child sessions, as family patterns and relationships are important. I also teach parenting skills, and will support the parents to enhance their skills. It is so much easier to love a child when you feel hopeful and both of you feel important to each other.
