Extensive work with elementary age children , adolescents, individuals and families.
Therapy can be initially a very stressful undertaking, that may or should initiate change. I like to look at the positives of change and how that makes a person feel better about themselves and their outlook on life, now and in the future. In my 20 plus years of experience as a therapist I have found that the relationship between the client and therapist is most important for this to occur and for real healing to begin. I feel that my calm and excepting demeanor is a good fit for people to begin this process.

Children naturally communicate through play.
As children , play is how we live our lives, interact with our environment, communicate our thoughts, feelings, and passions. Often times the stresses of life, relationships, job pressures, traumas, and losses make us forget how to play, how to explore, and seek growth. Wherever you find yourself today, I would be honored to help YOU find YOUR way back to your playful spirit. One that encourages you to grow, explore, and understand yourself. Gently pushing you to be the best you, you can be. So that you can overcome obstacles that are in your way, conquer hills you are seeking to climb, and relationships you are hoping to create.

I can help you develop a deeper understanding of your child and help them heal through the magic and wonder of play.
As a Registered Play Therapist who specializes in working with children 10 and under, I believe and know that children cannot process the same way that we adults do, which is why talk therapy won't work well for them. For children , play is their language and the toys are their words (Landreth). I am trained to communicate and use their play to reach their goals ( little do the kids realize what important work they are doing!) My job is to help them realize their best selves while helping you as their parent and caregivers understand and parent them in ways that can speak not only to their strengths but yours as well.

The majority of my background and training has been working with children , adolescents and adults who have experienced significant trauma in their lives.
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.
