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.

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.

Many times, child therapists overdo the family system in their quest to seek effective solutions for emotional, learning or behavioral concerns with young children. And many times doctors overpathologize issues that shouldn’t be medicated necessarily. This leaves parents wondering what is the best route for their child? Introducing brainwave optimization technology. A fast, effective, natural, and less expensive way to allow your child's brain to make the optimizing changes it desires to make---on its own! Without any external force, opinion, medication, diagnostic, etc. Contact kevin@kevinflemingphd.com or 877-606-6161.

I love working with kids. I currently work as a Experiential Play Therapist (part-time) for a safe house in the Metro-Denver area. Children are much stronger, smarter,and capable than many adults give them credit for. Children speak through play and through play therapy they can being to get their voice and identity back. 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.

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!

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.
