Val Bruno

I am an Air Force veteran and a mom of two amazing boys.  My husband and I enjoy spending time working out at our Crossfit gym, playing with our dogs, and loving on our boys.

I’ve spent the past five years practicing counseling in Colorado Springs, focusing most of my attention on working with children and adolescents.  I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Registered Play Therapist.  I love teaching grownups how to love, cherish and connect with their children (and themselves) and help them become functioning, thriving, happy members of our community.  I thoroughly enjoy integrating models of treatment and personalizing therapy for each client I work with.  I work primarily with domestic violence and dependency neglect cases, and have growing population of military families.

Erin Danylchuk, Student Representative 
I am currently a student at Colorado Christmas University getting my masters in counseling. I hold a Bachelors of Art in Communication Studies from Loyola Marymount University. I love working with children of all ages, especially the younger ones. There is something powerful and transformational about Play Therapy that inspires me to continue to work with children, and guide them through the therapeutic process. I have worked with substance abuse related and adolescents, and young children grieving death. I am originally from Colorado, and take any opportunity to experience the beautiful Rockies! I enjoy dancing, hiking, running, and spending leisure time with friends and family.
