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 specialize in providing play therapy to young children. I have an office where I offer both directive and non-directive play therapy to children ages 2 and above. In play therapy, I like to include the family rather than treating the child as an individual. One specialty I offer with young children is and evidenced-based, Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, which helps children who have been severely traumatized to learn coping skills and to be better equipped to deal with life's events after the trauma. When the child is supported with their trauma, then concerning behaviors begin to decrease.

Board-Certified Art Therapist, Registered Psychotherapist

In 80014 - Nearby to Wheat Ridge.

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.

Do you worry that your teen is acting different, struggling to communicate, or isolating and you just don't know how to help? Or maybe they are hanging out with a new group of kids at school. I can help you! I provide a safe space where the teen is able to vent, process, take apart and reorganize all of their feelings in a way that makes them feel better - that is my job. When a child begins to master that skill, the bridge towards communication and healing is natural. Parker Counseling Teen Counselor Adolescent Counselor Parker Counselor

Licensed Professional Counselor - Board Certified Music Therapist

In 80127 - Nearby to Wheat Ridge.

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.

Registered Psychotherapist

In 80031 - Nearby to Wheat Ridge.

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.

Kelly Otterson, M.A., LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

In 80530 - Nearby to Wheat Ridge.

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

Adolescence has its own set of unique challenges and issues. An adolescent who has experienced a crisis, such as divorced parents, loss of a loved one, school issues, depression, anxiety, ADD/ADHD, trauma/PTSD, self-esteem issues, bullying, family issues, eating disorders, or abuse, will understandably begin to question "why?". How he or she handles these thoughts can impact their whole life and, without resolution, they may turn to destructive behaviors. Adolescent counseling during this time has powerful positive affects over the course of a lifetime. Call today to schedule a free consultation with our experienced counselors.

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.

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
