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.

Adolescents can be a beautiful time in life, but for some it can be terrifying. Navigating through life as we try to find who we are and where we belong can be a daunting task. Support and guidance is always necessary through this time, but also learning through our experiences is vital to development as well. The pressures and expectations that adolescents carry around with them is a huge weight. Having a supportive and caring adult to walk them through this time in their life can be vital to get through this stage in life and thrive.

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.

Licensed Professional Counselor

I highly specialize in working with young children. I have extensive training and knowledge in early childhood development and use a combination of play therapy and EMDR when treating children. I believe trust is the most important component of therapy with kids and put a large emphasis on building the therapeutic relationship in the beginning. This allows kids to feel safe and benefit long term from the therapy process.

Sarah Walsh, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

I am have experience with young children after working as an extern at Boulder Center for Play Therapy. I have the tools and toys necessary to work with children ages 7-8 and up. I utilize a child-led play environment in which the child, through play, expresses the issues and struggles that they are facing in life, and I help them to work through and face those struggles with as many tools and resources as possible. I also help children develop healthy emotional regulation. I focus also on the hope and safety found in Christs love.

Child Therapist

Peg Shippert, MA, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of Applewood

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.

Child Therapist

Heather Gomez, MA, LMFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Applewood

I specialize in providing play therapy to young children. I have an office where I offer both directive and non-directive play therapy to children ages 2 and above. In play therapy, I like to include the family rather than treating the child as an individual. One specialty I offer with young children is and evidenced-based, Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, which helps children who have been severely traumatized to learn coping skills and to be better equipped to deal with life's events after the trauma. When the child is supported with their trauma, then concerning behaviors begin to decrease.

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.
