My name is Brooke Harris, the owner of Creative Counseling of Evergreen. I am a licensed professional counselor (LPC) in the state of Colorado as well as a national certified counselor (NCC). I am proud to be a registered play therapist (RPT) with the Association for Play Therapy. I graduated with a M.A. in Counseling from Western New Mexico University and I love what I do.
Although I have worked in different settings, geographical locations, and with different ages and cultures; my passion has always been practicing play therapy. When I work with teens and adults, I bring the spirit of play therapy in to those sessions as well. I view being a play therapist as a way of existing and interacting in the world. In congruence with play therapy, I believe sincerely in meeting people where they are and I genuinely view people with unconditional positive regard. I believe that therapy can be a collaborative and creative experience.
In addition to counseling people of all ages during my career, I have taught parenting courses, stress management and anger management courses. I enjoy offering parenting support and guidance as part of the counseling process if requested. No matter who I work with, I view myself as a reflective tool, so the client may gain insight in to experiences, behaviors, thoughts and emotions.
I was initially trained extensively in child centered, experiential play therapy, but I continue to educate myself and attend regular trainings in other modalities for toddlers, children, teens and adults. I have worked in a variety of settings: at a child development center in New Mexico, a mental health agency in Georgia and now at my own practice, Creative Counseling of Evergreen in beautiful Evergreen, Colorado.
In my time away from work, I enjoy trail running with my rescue dogs, hiking, traveling, trying new restaurants, and spending time with my family. I also enjoy volunteering for the Colorado Association of Play Therapy (CAPT) as a member of the board of directors. I live in the mountains near Evergreen with my husband and two young children.
