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.
Dr. Camden's practice is 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 Recovery AND EMDR
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.
Books by Dr. C.
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.
