Who We Serve:

We serve any family with a child between the ages of birth to five years who lives in Denver County, if any of the following are true:

  • You think your baby is unusually quiet or uninterested in you
  • You’re concerned about your baby's sleeping or feeding
  • You think your baby is fussy or cries too much
  • You’re worried about your young child’s temper tantrums or aggressive behavior
  • Your child is having difficulty coping with scary/traumatic events
  • You have a young child that is often sad or keeps to him/herself
  • You feel exhausted or overwhelmed by the demands of parenting

Our Services:

Our team of psychologists and therapists work exclusively with infants, toddlers, preschoolers and their families to offer comprehensive, trauma-informed, relationship-based interventions including:

  • Child and family therapy (talking with you about your baby)
  • Child-Parent Psychotherapy (CPP)
  • Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT)
  • Parent Child Groups
  • Case Management for enrolled families
  • Psychiatric evaluation

We are also able to provide services in the home or community when a higher level of care (such as more frequent or longer sessions) is needed, or when there are barriers preventing attendance in the office.
