A Welcome From Dr. Camden
Hello! I'm Dr. Marian Camden, and I would like to welcome you to my website and to my counseling and therapy practice. I am a licensed psychologist offering counseling, therapy, coaching, and consultation in Denver and the southern suburbs (Centennial, Highlands Ranch, Parker, Castle Rock, Lone Tree, Littleton, Aurora). For nearly two decades now, I have had the privilege and joy of helping adults, children, and teens work through difficult divorce situations, become better parents, heal from depression and anxiety, recover from trauma and emotional abuse, feel happier, more confident, and better about themselves: as parents, as partners, and as professionals.
People love how sunny and cheerful my office is. That's because I want you to feel safe, cared about, and able just to relax and be fully yourself here with me. I want you to feel what I already know: that things can get better, that people heal and grow. As I like to say, problems are real--and so are solutions.
Divorce can create hopelessness, anger, powerlessness, and despair; many people get stuck in that bitter place for the rest of their lives.
In counseling, though, I so often see these negative feelings give way to amazing insights, hope, strength, and a more joyful life. Hard to believe when you are in the middle of this mess, but it really does happen!
Whether they are angry, defiant, and breaking all the rules, or sad, depressed, anxious, and shy, adolescents can benefit so much from counseling and therapy.
Adolescence is such an important time for growth and development-- emotional, social, and physical--a time when teens are practicing and becoming more of whom they will be in the adult world. Parents can learn more effective ways of working with their adolescents and enjoy a closer bond with them. This makes the whole atmosphere of the house calmer and more enjoyable.
Trauma & EMDR Therapy
Trauma often occurs when you are in a dangerous or very distressing situation and feel you have no way to escape.
EMDR Therapy can be a wonderful avenue for relief and healing for many people. First discovered in 1989 by psychologist Francine Shapiro, Ph.D., EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing and is among the most widely researched, evidence-based trauma treatment available.
There are plenty of picture books for children whose parents have gone through divorce. But what about the children that come later? Where Do My Brother and Sister Go?
is written just for them! With simple language, and heartwarmingly beautiful illustrations of contemporary family life, this book answers questions, explores feelings, and reminds everyone in a blended or stepfamily what really matters the most.
