Frequently Asked Questions
We currently offer individual, group, family, and couples therapy. Our clinicians are trained in a variety of different specialties to meet the needs of our clients.
We wish this was an easy question to answer as there is no magic number of sessions. The frequency of therapy is based off of stability and current challenges. We encourage clients to attend weekly for at least the first month to be able to get started and get to know one another and then following that time period we can evaluate your continued therapeutic needs and make an individual plan for you.
Yes we can. We offer intensive counseling options for children, teens, and adults that are struggling with stability and safety. You have the option to see your clinician up to three times a week for individual therapy and the option to join group therapy on top of that. Our clinicians are trained to help with clients that are in need of more intensive therapy.
We offer DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy) for individual counseling and group counseling as well. DBT helps to provide some proper healthy coping skills for a variety of challenges including but not limited to: Depression, Anxiety, Bipolar Disorder, Borderline Personality Disorder, Anger Management. Please see our DBT services option on this website to learn a bit more about our groups and what DBT has to offer you in terms of help.
We offer a free 15 minute phone consultation with our office assistant, who is trained and knows the clinicians well, to be sure to properly place you with the appropriate clinician for your needs.
If you are not able to use your insurance because we are out of network, you are private paying, or utilizing your out-of-network benefits then our first consultation is given at a discount of half the normal price for our services. This allows us to meet you and make sure we are a good fit for you.
No. We work with general doctors, nurse practitioners, and psychiatrists to coordinate care and guide our clients if they need medications or have questions regarding the need for medications. We believe the best method for treatment is making sure you are participating in individual therapy and then adding medications in if needed.
Yes. There are some limits to confidentiality for your safety and the safety of others. However, it is rare that we need to break confidentiality and all the limits to confidentiality are discussed during your initial consultation so that you can have all your questions answered.
Yes. Between all of our staff members the only day that we do not see clients currently is on Sundays. Otherwise we have staff that can see clients Monday-Friday between 9am-8pm and Saturdays between 10am-5pm. Please contact us to set up an appointment and we can find the right fit for therapist and schedule for you.
We understand that parents want to be a part of their child’s treatment and that this can be a difficult balance with confidentiality. In the state of Colorado when your teen is 15 years or older they have the right to their own confidentiality, even in the case of parents paying for the services. Upholding your teens confidentiality actually allows us to have more open communication with them and makes treatment much more effective. As a parent you have the right to let your child’s therapist know any information that you feel would be important for them to keep up on. The more information we have the better picture we can draw and help your child. However, we are unable to give back information on your teen unless they are okay with what we are sharing. We welcome parents at the beginning or end of any session they want to attend to share their questions and concerns and for us to also let you know what has been the focus of the treatment.
We do offer audio and video counseling sessions to those that have a primary residence in Colorado. We use HIPPA compliant platforms to help insure confidentiality of these sessions and run the sessions just as we would any person to person sessions. For this reason our fees for audio and visual tele-health sessions are the same as our regular sessions.
Our practice is paperless and uses HIPPA compliant Electronic Health Records to keep your information safe. This also allows you to set up a secure client portal where you can email your clinician, have appointment reminders, and submit all of your paperwork prior to your first appointment. Our clients love the ability to submit documents or email their clinician in their own portal.
