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.

Teens can have a variety of difficulties including questioning their identities, struggling with self esteem and acceptance issues, worrying about meeting expectations, lacking organizational skills, and recovering from abandonment or trauma. I work with teens to help them develop their personal values, identify their unique talents and abilities, develop social and practical skills, and heal from past hurts and trauma. Anxiety and bullying are also common issues I work with.

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.

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.

Children and adolescents are more aware of their circumstances and in control of their future than most people give them credit for. During this time of rapid development, it is helpful to have your child work with a trained adolescent and child counselor to better equip them for the challenges that are inevitable in life. In counseling, your child can heal past hurts while learning strategies to enhance social, education, and lifelong situations. If you think child counseling may be helpful for you child, call Hannah Dorsher and schedule a free initial consultation at one of her Northern Colorado counseling offices.

Young children often require tenderness and care in the therapeutic environment. I offer a multitude of interventions including play therapy, to allow your child to learn adaptive ways to express and control their emotions. This also includes giving you, the caregiver, tools to support your child's growth. It is important that the caregiver take an active role in the therapy process in order to learn ways that the child's system can support their success!

Licensed Clincial Social Worker

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

Peg Shippert, MA, LPC
Child Therapist

Peg Shippert, MA, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

In 80301 - Nearby to Golden.

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.
