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. Whether you are experiencing postpartum challenges, are feeling isolated from your partner or are struggling with your partner on parenting differences, are feeling alone, like you can't do things the way you wish you could, are feeling overwhelmed or like you've lost yourself trying to please everyone, please reach out! I understand these struggles. You are not alone.

Child Therapist

Claudia Trevithick, ATR-BC, Registered Psychotherapist

Board-Certified Art Therapist, Registered Psychotherapist

Within driving distance of Thornton

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.

In counseling, your child can heal past hurts while learning strategies to enhance social, education, and lifelong situations.

Child Therapist

Sue McCullough, LCSW

Licensed Clincial Social Worker

Within driving distance of Thornton

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

Child Therapist

Dennis H. Harris, MA

Registered Psychotherapist

Within driving distance of Thornton

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.

Child Therapist

Rachel Weddle, MA, MFT

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.

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.

Child Therapist

Nicholas Terry, M.C., NCC, LPCC

Counselor

Within driving distance of Thornton

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. Nicholas offers child therapy to children and teens in the Fort Collins and surrounding Northern Colorado areas.
