Types of Counseling Services in Parker, Colorado
Our skilled therapists can help address a wide spectrum of individual issues for people ages 3 and up including depression, anxiety, trauma, addiction recovery, grief and loss, personal growth and adjustment issues, anger management, chronic pain or other crisis of health, eating disorders, career challenges, life transitions, and existential crises (including crises of faith and worldview).

Our most important relationships frequently go through times of conflict, pain, and crisis. How we navigate these seasons can have a significant impact on the future of a relationship and the futures of the individuals in that relationship. In the right therapeutic setting, couples can take advantage of opportunities for building communication, trust, intimacy, sexual fulfillment, more effective parenting, and personal growth. We offer counseling for couples in all stages of their relationships, including premarital counseling, marriage counseling, and counseling for couples who are dating.
Families are under great stress and pressure in our present day. Our family therapists can assess your family dynamics and recommend interventions for increasing communication, resolving conflicts, boundary setting, family structuring and parenting issues as well as managing crisis and grief together. We provide counseling for single parent families, blended families, divorcing families, traditional families, and families of all shapes and sizes.
Child Play Therapy
Play is the processing language of children. It is a structured, theoretically based approach to therapy that builds on the normal communicative and learning processes of children. With a trained therapist, role playing, drawing, art projects and the use of clinically significant toys can help facilitate the resolution of anger, grief, sadness, oppositional-defiant behavior, bed wetting, and other struggles common to kiddos.
All teens are faced with challenges, whether from moods, school, peers, their families or other life arenas. Sometimes an adolescent’s distress rises to a level that he or she can benefit from the support of a professional therapist. Meeting with a counselor can prevent minor issues from turning into major problems or help the teen recover from more serious issues such as eating disorders, cutting and other self-harm behaviors, thoughts of suicide, substance abuse, and others.
Southeast Christian Counseling Center offers psychological testing and assessments for children, teens, and adults. A psychological evaluation may include intelligence (IQ) tests as well as assessments of attention, memory, reasoning, thinking skills, achievement, personality, or clinical diagnosis. Testing may be helpful for school IEPs (independent education plans), court, or medical needs.
Do I really need counseling?
Everyone encounters challenges in life, and sometimes a person’s existing skills and knowledge alone can address some of those challenges. But, we are also social beings and none of us are experts in all areas of life. Sometimes we need the help, guidance, wisdom, and the professional presence and expertise that therapists can provide. Adjusting to life’s challenges as you learn new skills, tools, and insights to navigate current and future obstacles takes courage. People who decide to seek out therapy are taking responsibility for their lives in order to gain more insight, flexibility, and resilience.

How does counseling help?
Mental health therapy, including various modalities employed at Southeast Christian Counseling Center, is an evidence-based practice and helpful to most. Psychotherapy can help you grow in insight and self-awareness of your strengths and growth areas as well as your needs and wants. It can help you gain insight into old patterns with yourself or in relationships and then create new ones. It can help you identify your goals and develop strategies to meet them. You can learn new skills to cope with stress and other intense and often debilitating emotions such as anger, depression, anxiety, and grief. And you can find resolution to long-standing concerns, issues, worries, or burdens you feel stuck with.
