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.

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.

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!

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.

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 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.

Board-Certified Art Therapist, Registered Psychotherapist

In 80014 - Nearby to 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.

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.

As your therapist, I work to engage your child in an emotionally safe manner. I also involve, you, the parent(s) whenever possible.

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.
