We offer child and family therapy
in Denver. Over the course of years, we have worked with a lot of families and found that one common theme seems to stay consistent. Most families struggle with some type of relationship issue. These struggles can range from minor problems that require communication help to serious concerns that we need to address, such as substance abuse.
The bottom line is that every family can benefit from therapy because every family can be helped by improving their communication with one another.
Reasons people visit our clinic for child and family therapy in Denver
There are some common reasons that people initially reach out for help, including:
- Going through a divorce
- A new marriage
- Introducing new children into the family
- Adolescents and parents not being able to communicate without arguing or it escalating
- Adolescent eating disorders
- Concerns over an adolescent running away
- Substance abuse
- Death in the family
- Having to move
- Children needing to change schools
- Change in a parent’s job that has greatly impacted the family finances and dynamic
- Difficulty with stepparent-stepchild relationships
- Anger felt by children towards parents and vice versa
- Parents and children being reunited after a deployment, divorce, incarceration, etc.
There are endless reasons why people need to visit us for therapy as a family. The key is realizing that all families go through change and it is normal for that change to lead to conflict or struggle. Therapy can help everyone in the family to move through these changes in a healthy way. Therapy can also help families to move out of unhealthy situations, which is especially true if someone is abusing substances.
Age is not a problem
Some parents are concerned about bringing their children to a therapist at a young age, but this is not an issue. We are highly skilled in working with small children and understand how to communicate with them in a way that makes them feel safe and comfortable. Sometimes, we use things like drawing pictures to help children convey their emotions. We will let children set the pace.
Anyone can come
We help all types of families. There is not a set idea of what a family looks like. This could be children and anyone in the family that serves as a caretaker or influence in their life. For example, it could be grandparents, an aunt or uncle that helps to care for them, a stepparent, etc. Our goal is to include anyone that is relevant to the family’s daily life in the therapy sessions to improve the family dynamic.

It is often better to come in once by yourself before coming in with the children so that everything can be established ahead of time.
