Child Therapist

Sarah Walsh, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

1319 West Baseline Road Suite 101-B, Lafayette, Colorado

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

Scott Boyd, M.A., LPCC, CACII


2027 Broadway, Suite B, Boulder, Colorado

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.

Child Therapist

Peg Shippert, MA, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

2760 29th St., Suite 2C, Boulder, Colorado

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

Allison Villarreal, MA, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

2995 Baseline Road, Suite 100, Boulder, Colorado

I specialize in working with parents of children of all ages. As a licensed psychotherapist and mother of 3, I can help support life "balance" with the added challenges of parenthood. While being a mom or dad can be one of the most enriching experiences, it can also be one of the most difficult. Whether you are experiencing postpartum challenges, are feeling isolated from your partner or are struggling with your partner on parenting differences, are feeling alone, like you can't do things the way you wish you could, are feeling overwhelmed or like you've lost yourself trying to please everyone, please reach out! I understand these struggles. You are not alone.

Child Therapist

Sue McCullough, LCSW

Licensed Clincial Social Worker

700 Front Street, Suite 208, Louisville, Colorado

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
