My specialties in Synergetic Play Therapy, Hand in Hand Parenting, mindfulness, and relational neuroscience allow me to offer tools and a framework that supports kiddos, parents, and adults in understanding their natural states of stress/arousal so they can care for themselves and others in the midst of fear, overwhelm, hopelessness, helplessness and anger.
Thank you for taking a moment to check in with yourself and to reach out. I am interested in hearing about what causes you stress and what gets you inspired. This is what being human is all about, and finding a balance here is so important. I want to help you make room for the ways you're working hard to manage life and help you shake off the tension, frustration and worry that gets in the way of feeling awesome. I trust that being together with a skillful someone is what allows for confidence and clarity to emerge even in the midst of challenges.

I have worked with children, and their parents, adolescents, adult men and women since 1984. I see people with a variety of concerns, which includes, but is not limited to, developing more rewarding relationships, parenting issues, making transitions in their lives, and loss & grief. Many people today feel overwhelmed with the pressures of living and trying to keep their heads above water. I help them to strategize ways to reach their chosen goals, and how to take better care for themselves and those they love.

I am trained to provide play therapy, neurofeedback, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), trauma focused cognitive behavioral therapy, psychoeducation, sexual abuse treatment and parenting support.
My name is Erin Thomas and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Northern Colorado. In therapy, every client is different and has differing needs for the healing process to occur. This is why the most important step to me in working with a client is establishing a trusting relationship at the beginning of therapy so that I can understand how to help in the most effective way. Connecting with others in a way that supports them through difficult times in their lives has been my passion and I continue to look for new ways to help those who struggle.

Globally, we have been and are going through a massive growth period. We can all feel it. We can feel quite hopeless, lost and stuck at times… our next steps seem difficult to find. It seems like there is a calling in there for each of us, a way that we're being called to grow and deepen, an opportunity. It might be to have a kinder relationship with ourselves and others; or to open up to trust, surrender and letting go; or to go a different direction than we've previously been heading. We are all being called in some way. It's our job to listen. It takes courage to listen and make changes. You are not alone.

I love working with people who are interested in getting to know themselves better within the safe environment of therapy. Some of the people I work with come to therapy with clear goals, and other ones just know that they are feeling stuck, off, sad, scared, or unmoored. Either way is understandable and completely okay. The important thing is that they have the courage to seek support. I tend to work with people who would like to explore the roots of their current challenges, who want to feel more connected to themselves and other people, who put in effort in and outside of therapy, and who want to learn to be kinder to themselves.

Parenting Therapists

What does therapy for parenting look like?

Therapists may work with parents individually, together, or include the whole family to find solutions for the problems a parent faces. Many parent-based therapies work on a parent’s relationship with their children, problem-solving within the family, and analysis of family dynamics. Therapy conducted remotely by video may be helpful in allowing a therapist to observe how families interact in their own homes.

When should a parent seek therapy?

When behavioral problems begin to disrupt the healthy functioning of a family, it may be a good time to look into therapy. If parents find that children are acting out in school, have started using drugs or alcohol, have developed eating disorders, or other similar red flags, a therapist may be able to help.

How long does therapy take for parenting problems?

Depending on the severity of a family’s challenges and the type of treatment utilized, therapy for parenting can last from weeks to months. Cognitive behavioral therapy is a pragmatic therapy type that can be brief, most often ranging from between 5 and 20 sessions. Structural family therapy, which inspects family dynamics, often takes several months. Parent-child interaction therapy is typically shorter-term, lasting between 10 and 20 sessions. For any therapy, the duration will depend on the progress made and results realized.

Can therapy help parents dealing with burnout or stress?

Parenting is difficult. Parents may dismiss or conceal feelings of exhaustion, overwhelm, or escape ideation—imagining withdrawing from their parental obligations altogether. but left unattended, these feelings can have negative effects on the whole family. A therapist can help parents work on the skills they might need to better cope with the burdens of parenting and help them be the best parents they can be.
