For counseling, clients meet with a counselor for 45-50 minute appointments. Clients are scheduled through the Clinic office and are usually given standing appointments for the same time every week. Treatment usually lasts from 6 to 14 sessions. The cost is typically $60 per semester, with more advanced clinicials costing $10-$60 per session. We accept cash and credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, Discover).
To schedule services and complete a brief telephone intake, contact the PSC office at 970-351-1645.
Clients meet with a counselor one-on-one to address a wide range of concerns from self-improvement to coping with life stressors or managing mental health concerns such as depression. Individual counseling is a collaborative process with clients actively participating in their treatment, whether they want somewhere to reflect and explore or somewhere to learn new skills.
Most semesters we have counselors-in-training who are specializing in counseling children and adolescents from ages 7-18. These counselors strive to balance providing a safe space for clients to speak openly and collaborating with parents or guaurdians throughout the treatment process.
Most semesters we have counselors specializing in play therapy with children ages 1-9. Based on the philosphy that play is the natural language of children, this type of treatment allows younger children to express themselves and process their feelings without words. Through play therapy, children learn how to express their thoughts and feelings in constructive ways, to control their behavior, to make decisions, and to accept responsibility. Although the child's therapy time is their ow, regular parent consultations are scheduled, as parents play an essential role in their child's success.
Sometimes problems go beyond the individual. Couples may seek out counseling together through our clinic. We are LGBT-affirming and open to seeing couples at any place in their relationship. We work with couples seeking services for any range of concerns, whether it is around communication, intimacy, life transitions, or more.
Therapy can extend to the entire family, whatever your family looks like. We work with nuclear, blended, and extended families, or any range between. Issues addressed in family therapy can focus on communication, emotional expression, grief, parenting or co-parenting concerns, boundary and role disputes among family members, or any other concern affecting the family.
*Due to Colorado law we are unable to work with couples of families actively engaging in or in imminent danger of engaging in violence in the home.
