DO YOU WANT TO BE MORE?
More calm, peaceful, and confident?
How about more self-accepting?
Want to be more loving, brave, connected?
(Notice, I did not ask you if you want to DO more!)
Anxiety, depression, trauma and abuse, relationship problems, they're all real; but so is healing, growth, and expansion of your mind and soul. 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 to be for 25 years now. Adults, children, 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.
Thanks to my telehealth practice, you can see me whether you are in Denver, Boulder, Colorado Springs, the suburbs, or any other part of Colorado. If you are looking for child therapy, adolescent therapy, or family therapy, I am happy to help.
When you do counseling or therapy 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--and so are solutions.
In addition to general counseling and trauma therapy, I also provide divorce support services and offer consultation on parenting plans, mediate parenting time and decision making agreements, and offer Parenting Coordination and Decision Making (PC/DM) services. If you are going through a PRE or CFI evaluation, I offer help to prepare yourself mentally and emotionally for the process.
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
Group therapy is a great form of treatment for adolescent girls. I started a ten-week group for high school girls almost five years ago now. Needless to say, it has lasted a lot longer than five years. In fact, the high school girls therapy group has become so popular that I now offer to different evening groups. . . Read More
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.
