Licensed Clinical Social Worker

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.

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.

Child Therapist

Nicholas Terry, M.C., NCC, LPCC

Counselor

Within driving distance of 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.
