ACTIVITY AND SKILL BASED THERAPY FOR 13-25 YEAR OLDS

Every child deserves a champion – an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection, and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be.
— Rita F. Pierson

Being a teenager is such a difficult time and often parents can feel helpless not knowing what to do.  If you are feeling worried about your child's habits, behaviors, addictions, mental health and/or failure to launch - this service is for you.  Have you tried therapy before only to find that it was short-lived or unsuccessful?  Are you wanting to avoid medications and in patient or boarding school options?  I want you to know that there is absolutely hope to avoid these things and I am here to offer it.  As opposed to traditional therapy, I offer activity and skill based therapy.  This is all terrain, out of the office work.  It takes place in your home, getting onto a trail, going out to explore special projects and activities, and/or networking with outside agencies like Boulder's own Natural Highs (https://www.naturalhighs.org).  I am even able to pick your child up from school and drop off at your home.  I have extensive experience working with addictions of all sorts (including tech addiction), trauma, depression, anxiety, extreme mental health issues, disabilities, relationship issues, social phobias, ADD/ADHD, and simply helping people sort through existential life problems.  I am a professional counselor practicing Sensorimotor Psychotherapy for trauma, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Transpersonal Therapy, Authentic Relating, and have been successfully working with addictions clients involved in the justice system for over 6 years.  You might also be pleased to know that I have two children of my own and have a lot of experience working with kids and teens. 

I know it's scary to not know what to do for your own kids.  I would be happy to help support you in a variety of ways and get to the next step.  If you are interested in activity and skills based therapy for your child, please click on the connect tab below and set up a free consultation as soon as this week!  

Good habits formed at youth make all the difference.
