I'm Alex Boyce.


I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and National Certified Counselor. I have over a decade of experience working with children, adolescents, and families in the mental health field. I have always loved working and playing with children and am grateful to have found a profession where I can support children and teenagers to become their best selves!

Since becoming a parent, I have gained even more insight into how challenging it can be to raise a child. There's a lot of advice out there on how to best parent. I believe that you should do what works--and that's different for every child! I believe that the relationship between parent and child is key and that's what guides my approach to therapy. I will help you look below the surface to find your child/teen's unmet needs and to meet those needs so that your child does not feel the need to resort to bigger and worse behaviors.


I am trained in EMDR Therapy and children’s yoga. I support clients who have experienced single incident traumatic events to complex developmental trauma, attachment issues, anxiety, depression, phobias, anger management issues, and dissociation. I have a passion for working with children who have experienced trauma and are in foster care, kinship care, or have been adopted into their forever families.

I first moved to Colorado in 2006 to complete my undergraduate degree at Colorado College where I majored in English and Creative Writing. Although I grew up in the suburbs of Boston, Massachusetts, I have come to enjoy a more relaxed pace of life and enjoy spending time in the mountains. My favorite activities include anything that involves the outdoors, including hiking, kayaking, yoga, and traveling.

Hi, I’m Carly! 

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor Candidate with a Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the University of Colorado Denver and a Master of Arts in Elementary Education from the University of Denver.  My journey working with children and families began in the classroom as an elementary school teacher in 2015. It was there where I found my passion for supporting children and families with mental health, social-emotional skills, self-esteem, and identity formation. I have always loved working with children and am fortunate to be able to provide services that help children feel more connected with themselves and their caregivers. 

I am trained in Synergetic Play Therapy, EMDR, and Perinatal Mental Health. I have experience working with children of all ages who are experiencing a wide range of challenges including trauma, anxiety, depression, grief, self-harm, and suicidality. I believe that every family and child is unique, so it is important to me to get to know your child and your family and collaborate with you to work toward your child’s goals.


Outside of my role as a therapist, I enjoy spending time with my husband and daughter, being outside, reading, yoga, and cuddling up on the couch to watch a good movie.

We believe that the relationship between parent and child is key when we talk about discipline. Our definition of discipline is to teach; to teach a child or teenager what is right or wrong, how to respect others, and how to be a fully functioning member of society when they reach adulthood. Many parents believe that discipline consists only of punishment, which can actually damage the relationship between parent and child and be counter-productive to a parent’s long-term goals for their child. 


We also believe that parents are the experts on their children. We are here to support caregivers in the process of change, not to tell them what is right for their unique child.

Hurt people hurt people. That’s how pain patterns get passed on, generation after generation after generation. Break the chain today. Meet anger with sympathy, contempt with compassion, cruelty with kindness. Greet grimaces with smiles. Forgive and forget about finding fault. Love is the weapon of the future.
