In 80020 - Nearby to Derby.

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.

Phil Hartwick, M.A., LPC

Counselor

In 80530 - Nearby to Derby.

Adolescence has its own set of unique challenges and issues. As teens develop advanced cognitive capacities, experiences and events take on different meanings. An adolescent who has experienced a crisis, such as divorced parents, loss of a loved one, school issues, depression, anxiety, ADD/ADHD, trauma/PTSD, self-esteem issues, bullying, family issues, eating disorders, or abuse, will understandably begin to question "why?". How he or she handles these thoughts can impact their whole life and, without resolution, they may turn to destructive behaviors. Adolescent counseling during this time has powerful positive affects over the course of a lifetime. Call to schedule a free consultation.

Do you worry that your teen is acting different, struggling to communicate, or isolating and you just don't know how to help? Or maybe they are hanging out with a new group of kids at school. I can help you! I provide a safe space where the teen is able to vent, process, take apart and reorganize all of their feelings in a way that makes them feel better - that is my job.

Child Therapist

Nicholas Terry, M.C., NCC, LPCC

Counselor

In 80530 - Nearby to Derby.

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.

Claudia Trevithick, ATR-BC, Registered Psychotherapist

Board-Certified Art Therapist, Registered Psychotherapist

In 80014 - Nearby to Derby.

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.

Young children are such an important part of the family system. They are the ones that are most affected negatively if there are problems in their environment. Enabling a child to “reach" for a family member when they are feeling pain, sadness or even joy will help them bond closely with others. Children need to feel attached to others in that they can have healthy relationships throughout life.

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.

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.

Dennis H. Harris, MA

Registered Psychotherapist

In 80031 - Nearby to Derby.

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.

Licensed Clincial Social Worker

In 80027 - Nearby to Derby.

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
