Is Your Child Hurting, Stuck or Struggling?  Is Your Child in the Midst of a Crisis?

Counseling for children and teenagers in Littleton, CO, at McAllaster & Associates Counseling, LLC.We can help! Wading through the options in today’s world of therapy can be so overwhelming.

We believe early intervention can dramatically change the course of a child’s life!

Studies show that half of those who develop mental health disorders in America show symptoms by age 14. (Archive of Gen. Psychiatry, 2005 Jun; 62(6); 617-27)

Imagine the difference you can make in your child or adolescents life by paying attention to these symptoms BEFORE they reach crisis levels. And imagine the difference you can make in your childs life by providing them with the space and tools to learn about, understand, and cope with their emotions.

Our world is complex…kids and adolescents are facing more social, emotional, and spiritual issues than ever. There are lifestyle choices to make at every turn. We will work to help identify what is going on and find pragmatic, realistic ways to cope and move through the problems they are facing.

We work hard to isolate and understand the problems your child is experiencing and how they are affecting home life, school life, and social life.

Because we know kids and adolescents learn, change, and process differently than adults, we adapt the therapy process to meet your child’s specific needs. We work from a bio-psycho-social model (biological, psychological, social) looking at each area to uncover what might be affecting your child or family.

We will tailor our services to fit your specific needs.  However, some of our primary methods of treatment are:

  • Cognitive and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
  • Solution Focused Brief Therapy
  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy
  • Play Therapy
  • Filial Therapy
  • Family Systems
  • Person Centered Therapy
  • Art Therapy
  • Expressive Therapies
  • EMDR and Trauma-Informed Care
  • Animal Assisted Therapy

If you have any questions about any of these methods, please ask!  We are happy to answer any questions that you may have.  We want you to feel educated and comfortable about the therapy process.
