My approach to therapy allows clients the emotional space to examine situations without identifying as the problem themselves. It creates key exploratory distance between self and guilt or shame allowing for curiosity rather than judgment. I strive to elicit an experience that is empowering and illuminating. This is useful if you are seeking resources as a member of a couple or family where fear of blame is a common threat. The parents of my adolescent and young adult clients are relieved to work with someone who sees their unique loved one rather than diagnostics or labels.

Transitions are hard, whether they are expected or not. From child to adolescent / teen , high school to college, and from college to “adulthood.” Many transitions brings about changes in mood and feelings, as well as changes in the family dynamic. Whether you are a parent struggling to communicate better with your child/ teen , an older child/ teen trying to navigate your burgeoning independence, or an emerging adult who is confused and overwhelmed by life, my hope is to provide a space to gain clarity, peace, and a sense of relief.

Let's face it. Adolescence and young adulthood looks far different than it did for previous generations!! There are more resources,education and training involved in getting one's driver's license than there are readily available to navigate the difficult and complex challenges that plague today's millennial. That's where I come in. Deep down, I know that what you need is to feel understood, truly listened to, and appreciated. I am passionate about helping you or your teen express and appreciate themselves authentically, from a holistic viewpoint with plenty of easy-to-use tools to get on a more sustainable and fulfilling track.

Are you looking for a therapist who can help your child or teenager learn to manage their emotions instead of engaging in all-out temper tantrums? As a caregiver, are you wondering what the best approach is to manage these difficult moments and to deepen your relationship with your child at the same time? In a therapy session with Alex, your child will learn techniques to encourage self-awareness in order to prevent acting-out behavior and you will learn strategies to support your child on this journey. A typical therapy session may include play therapy, yoga poses, breathwork, and/or creative arts.

Hello! I am a pschologist who does teletherapy with teens, young adults, and adults. My focus is to help you (or your teen !) feel heard and to commit to a life that feels fulfilling and valuable. I achieve this by working from an acceptance and values-based approach (ACT) with humor and compassion. Teletherapy allows you or your child the flexibility to receive treatment - from school, work, or home - without the commute! I would love for you to reach out, or go to my website, to set up a free consult phone call to see if we'd be a good match!

My specialty includes working with adolescents and their families who have experienced trauma. This includes adoption trauma as well as emotional and/or physical abuse. I am able to help both the adolescent and their family understand the affects of trauma on the brain and subsequent behaviors that ensue. I feel it is important to examine attachment issues as well as emotional regulation. I believe that through relationship the brain can be "rewired" to react to stressors in more effective ways. It would be my privilege to walk through this process with any adolescent who desires change.

Are you struggling with emotions, relationships, or identity? You may even be wishing that things just "go back to the way they used to be." Parents, does your teen need some extra support? Many feel stuck right now as the world constantly changes. This can lead to an overall resentment that may negatively impact everyday life.

Cherry Creek Psychotherapy is comprised of 7 licensed and trained clinicians practicing very closely together in adolescent and emerging adult group therapy, uniquely organized to provide ancillary family and individual support where/when needed.
Our clinical focus is a "hybrid" approach combining Dialectical and Cognitive Behavior Therapy and Relational/Experiential therapy, primarily for the adolescent and emerging adult, but also working with adults, families and couples. Our clients struggle with regulating emotions, distress tolerance, core emptiness (confusion about oneself), as well as interpersonal conflict with frequent emotional chaos. Our time-limited, solution-focused technique is often sought to augment a person's existing individual therapy. Our approach is also effective in treating depression, self-injury, anxiety - focusing on coping skills. We are comprised of 4 licensed clinicians offering both individual, couple and group therapy.

Teen Therapists
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence. Finding a teen therapist in Denver and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
