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. Using her background in social work Erica Laskin offers child therapy to children and teens in the Fort Collins and surrounding Northern Colorado areas.

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.

Children under 6 years of age are not yet developmentally ready to communicate their thoughts and feelings in words. Moreover, understand why they feel the way they feel and appropriately display their emotions. Children need to be nurtured, supported and guided navigating through uncharted territory. I provide a safe, warm environment for your child to learn about social interactions and express their emotions in a healthy manner.

Moreover, parents and caregivers are involved in the therapeutic process.

Sally Bonkrude, MA, MT-BC, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor - Board Certified Music Therapist

In 80127 - Nearby to Derby.

With young children, you have to let go and play. Play is one of the ways children communicate and express their feelings. Using "Play Therapy", we enter the world of play and within the play, one finds the needs of the child, and the parents are then able to see how they may help their children in positive ways. Sometimes, it's about going for a walk with the child and seeing what comes up. It's being present, open and able to get out of your way of thinking and opening to what the child is trying to show you through their play.

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.
