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.

I am an advocate for children and their protection. All the children I work with receive the upmost care and education I can offer. Through a therapeutic relationship and safe environment your children can begin a process of healing and development that will set them on a path early in life towards freedom and significance.

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. I offer play therapy, art therapy and animal assisted therapy, which promotes communication skills, helps escape stress and learn coping strategies. Moreover, parents and caregivers are involved in the therapeutic process.

Peg Shippert, MA, LPC
Child Therapist

Peg Shippert, MA, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

In 80301 - Nearby to Derby.

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.

Counselor

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.

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.
