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.

Licensed Professional Counselor

When I work with preteen and older girls who are struggling to recover from traumatic experiences, I focus first on handing as much control as possible to them, and on exploring what makes feel safe, and what doesn't. We then assess their symptoms and develop skills to create even more control over their reactions to what happened to them. Most girls love to involve my professional therapy dog, Nova, in our work. Nova can help make the therapy room feel safer, and our interactions with her can indirectly address material that is hard to talk about directly. In addition to playing/working with Nova, we usually use a form of EMDR, and other evidence-based approaches for resolving trauma.

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.

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.

Teens can have a variety of difficulties including questioning their identities, struggling with self esteem and acceptance issues, worrying about meeting expectations, lacking organizational skills, and recovering from abandonment or trauma. I work with teens to help them develop their personal values, identify their unique talents and abilities, develop social and practical skills, and heal from past hurts and trauma. Anxiety and bullying are also common issues I work with.

Children and adolescents are more aware of their circumstances and in control of their future than most people give them credit for. During this time of rapid development, it is helpful to have your child work with a trained adolescent and child counselor to better equip them for the challenges that are inevitable in life. In counseling, your child can heal past hurts while learning strategies to enhance social, education, and lifelong situations. If you think child counseling may be helpful for you child, call Hannah Dorsher and schedule a free initial consultation at one of her Northern Colorado counseling offices.
