DO YOU WANT TO BE MORE?
Do you want to be more joyful? More calm, peaceful, and confident? How about more self-accepting? Want to be more loving, brave, and connected? Or maybe you want more of that for your child or adolescent.
Anxiety, depression, self-doubt, trauma and abuse, relationship problems, struggles with assertiveness and boundaries, these problems are all real. Yet, so are healing, growth, and expansion of your mind and soul. It can be hard to imagine even getting through some painful life experiences, let alone being somehow more. Yet, I have seen people heal and grow through these hard experiences, many times over, coming out stronger and better than ever before. A crisis can feel dangerous, but it is also a true opportunity to change and grow in ways you may not even have imagined. Do you long to be more?
I bet I can help you! I’m Dr. Marian Camden, a Colorado licensed psychologist, and I have been helping people be more of who and what they want for more than 20 years now. Adults, little kids, teens, I like to work with everyone, and I use a wide variety of skills and ideas tailored to fit your unique desires and needs.
In addition to my in-person psychology practice near the Denver Tech Center (DTC), I offer telehealth sessions on a HIPAA-secure Zoom platform, so you can see me whether you are in Denver, Boulder, Colorado Springs, the suburbs, or any other part of Colorado. And something new: I am now authorized by the PSYPACT Commission to provide psychological services via telehealth in all of the following states: Alabama, Arizona, Colorado, Delaware, District of Columbia, Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky, Maryland, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, Nevada, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Texas, Utah, and Virginia, and soon Kansas, Maine, Arkansas, and West Virginia.
When you work with me, I want you to feel safe, cared about, and able just to relax and be fully yourself. I want you to feel what I already know: that things can get better, that people can heal and grow and become richer, deeper, happier, and more at peace with themselves and others. As I like to say, problems are real— but so are solutions.
Dr. Camden seeks to make her practice a safe place for people of all ages, genders, cultures, religions, sexual orientations, and walks of life.
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!
Child & Teen Therapy
Adolescence is a challenging time both for teens and their parents. Therapy for teens can provide them a safe, private place to sort out feelings and think about how they want to approach the issues in their lives. Adolescent counseling is a special love of mine and I’m happy to talk with you about my approach.
If your child is quite young, say 3-8 years old, we will do play therapy. Play therapy allows young children to act out or demonstrate feelings and perceptions for which they do not have mature language. The relationship itself creates a feeling of security that allows them to express more of what they are experiencing in their world. . . Read More
Trauma often occurs when you are in a dangerous or very distressing situation and feel you have no way to escape. Trauma can result from a single event, like a terrible accident, rape, or war. Trauma can also be related to long-term mistreatment or abuse in close relationships. I understand trauma from a mind and body perspective, and I can offer you a number of treatment options along with the compassion needed for any kind of therapy to work. I’m trained in EMDR, IFS, Emotional Freedom Technique, and yoga-informed
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.
