Is your child not sleeping through the night and/or waking you multiple times at night? If you are longing for everyone in your family to sleep all night, then I can help. I have been working with families on their children's sleep issues for over a decade. I help families discover the gift of sleep and the subsequent joy of having a well rested family. My approach is rooted in developmental research and attachment theory. I take in the unique needs of your family and help you create a schedule, bedtime routine and sleep plan where everyone gets the sleep they need.

Child Therapist

Peg Shippert, MA, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of 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.

I highly specialize in working with young children. I have extensive training and knowledge in early childhood development and use a combination of play therapy and EMDR when treating children. I believe trust is the most important component of therapy with kids and put a large emphasis on building the therapeutic relationship in the beginning. This allows kids to feel safe and benefit long term from the therapy process.

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.

Child Therapist

Sue McCullough, LCSW

Licensed Clincial Social Worker

Within driving distance of Golden

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

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.

Registered Psychotherapist

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.

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.
