Counseling: Beyond Trauma

I work with people whose lives have been touched by acts of catastrophic violence who are ready to create a life beyond loss and trauma.  Catastrophic violence includes acts such as aggravated assault, rape, childhood sexual abuse, suicide, mass shootings and aggressive domestic violence which can leave a you feeling broken or damaged and even guilty. People can recover and survive extreme trauma. Adult survivors of childhood physical and sexual abuse are a specific group of individuals I am passionate about working with. The unshakeable resilience of survivors is an inspiration that shines a light of hope for humanity.

The healing journey is a path as unique as each individual. I respect your inner wisdom and the resilience of your character as it is what allowed you to survive. If you are ready to move towards surviving into thriving so you can flourish and begin to take the steps in creating a life you love living give me a call today 720-260-7702.

As an out-of-network provider, I do not process insurance claims for clients. However, I will gladly provide you with the paperwork necessary for you to file a claim with your insurance carrier who may reimburse you for some, or all, of your fees.

  • Individual Adult Psychotherapy: $130 per 50-minute session.
  • Skype Counseling: $130 per 50-minute session.
  • Counseling with loved ones: $180 per 90-minute session

At first the thought of paying for needed psychological services may seem daunting.

Therefore, you may be surprised to learn that psychotherapy expenses are not insurmountable, and usually quite affordable, especially given the profoundly positive changes it produces.

Consider the following:

  • On average, a course of individual psychotherapy lasts 15 – 20 weeks.
  • Assuming therapy continues for the full 20 weeks, a course of treatment may total $2600.

I do recognize that this may pose a financial burden for you – particularly in today’s tough economic times. If so, you may want to consider one of the following ways to finance your psychotherapy:

  • Personal savings.
  • Low interest credit cards.
  • Personal loans from friends or family members.
  • Low-interest “asset” loans (e.g. home equity, IRAs, etc.).
  • Personal bank loans.

However, if none of these options work for you, don’t hesitate to call me at 720-260-7702 and  I will be happy to explore alternative payment options with you. Additionally, you’ll find information about our sliding scale fees below.



Adjusted Fee 

Simply put, adjusted fees are fees for people on a limited basis to people who cannot afford to pay outright, or borrow funds, for psychotherapy services. In more detail:

  • Working within certain boundaries, using this arrangement, clients pay only what they can afford. For example, a normal session rate for individual therapy is $130. Depending on the circumstances, a client using my adjusted scale fee structure would pay $40 – $120 per session.
  • If your total income is less than $75,000 per year, you may qualify for one of the limited spots for adjusted fees. Your actual fees will be determined after your initial consultation. One factor I take into consideration is the number of children in the household.
  • As part of my strict adherence to the ethical code of the American Counseling Association, as founder of Creating Your Beyond, LLC, I offer three “adjusted fee” slots at any given time.
  • Given this limited number of spots – and the fact that there are many people who genuinely need psychotherapy, but simply cannot afford it – I work very hard to ensure that all of adjusted fee clients are genuinely in need.
  • To that end, you may be required to provide me with relevant proof-of-income documents in order to be considered for an adjusted fee. 
  • It’s also important to note that the adjusted fee spots are often filled quickly and I may have a waiting list. If you’d like to be placed on that list or want to learn more about other options, please call me at 720-2607702. I am happy to answer your questions and / or schedule a consultation with you.
