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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Specializing in Children and family therapy means you can be assured your child will be getting the special, specific attention of a therapist trained for the unique needs of children. Approaching a teenager's problems is quite different than working with a 5 or 6 year old. Every child in any given age range is different so therapy must be tailored individually to meet each child's needs.

I am have experience with young children after working as an extern at Boulder Center for Play Therapy. I have the tools and toys necessary to work with children ages 7-8 and up. I utilize a child-led play environment in which the child, through play, expresses the issues and struggles that they are facing in life, and I help them to work through and face those struggles with as many tools and resources as possible. I also help children develop healthy emotional regulation. I focus also on the hope and safety found in Christs love.

Child Therapist

Claudia Trevithick, ATR-BC, Registered Psychotherapist

Board-Certified Art Therapist, Registered Psychotherapist

Within driving distance of Sheridan

As an art therapist, sandplay therapist and play therapist, I believe that the young child's most natural way of expressing him/herself is through play, I usually let the child take the lead, often working in metaphor through puppets, drawing, and sandplay. I first do an intake with the parents. After assessing and working with the child, I will include family or parent/child sessions, as family patterns and relationships are important. I also teach parenting skills, and will support the parents to enhance their skills. It is so much easier to love a child when you feel hopeful and both of you feel important to each other.
