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 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.

Diamond Counseling provides therapy services for children ages 5 and older. Even though your child may not be able to articulate their need for therapy, they have other ways of letting you know. This can include their performance at school, behavioral issues at home or school that may be problematic, fear, depression, or having difficulty sharing what they are feeling. As your therapist, I work to engage your child in an emotionally safe manner. I also involve, you, the parent(s) whenever possible. I provide evening office hours to fit both your school and work schedules. The Diamond Counseling office location is at Wadsworth and Hampden.

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.

Children are incredible, talented beings! However, oftentimes we have adult expectations of children, in terms of managing BIG emotions - when they haven't been given the tools to do so or feel heard when they try to express these feelings. I believe in harnessing the power of play (a child's language!) to give children a necessary outlet and room to practice these life skills. I utilize both direct and non-direct play techniques to help children prevent or resolve difficulties with which they are struggling. I believe in the healing power of play and the tremendous benefits it brings to children in therapy.

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.

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 use non-directive, directive and sand play therapy when working with children. Given that younger children's brains are in a process of development and many of the more complex cognitive skills don't develop until later, play is the most effect method of learning to solve problems and process emotions or issues. As a school counselor I worked with families, teachers and children. I have trained as a synergistic play therapist, a person centered play therapist and in sand play.

Adolescents can be a beautiful time in life, but for some it can be terrifying. Navigating through life as we try to find who we are and where we belong can be a daunting task. Support and guidance is always necessary through this time, but also learning through our experiences is vital to development as well. The pressures and expectations that adolescents carry around with them is a huge weight. Having a supportive and caring adult to walk them through this time in their life can be vital to get through this stage in life and thrive.

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. Using her background in social work Erica Laskin offers child therapy to children and teens in the Fort Collins and surrounding Northern Colorado areas.
