|I was recently asked to post on finding a therapist.|
There are a bunch of on line searches you can do
and places to look for Attachment Therapists/Counselors.
Here are some listings for Colorado Therapy camps
and local Colorado Springs area therapists and some
ways to search in your area. Mostly a bunch of links.
Honestly, I don't know anyone who has used most of
these places, so check them out and get referrals. I am
not referring, just giving the resources. PLEASE
check them out for yourself first and if you know about
any of them, leave a comment and let me know too.
Especially if they are great or terrible ones on this
list or who you know of! Would definitely want to note
the great ones and delete the terrible ones. The ones
listed below are a mix of Spiritual-Christian-Secular
sort of options, not necessarily noted, so check them
out to see if it the type you are comfortable with. _____________________________________________________________
A local counselor who I have heard a great deal of positive
things about, and I know two adoptive families who have
used him and think he is super great, is Mark Beal,
he can be contacted at:
