How to find the best therapist for you

1. Narrow Down By Insurance

If you plan to use your insurance, begin by narrowing down your options to therapists who accept your insurance plan. Unless you’re willing to pay out of pocket, ruling out therapists who do not accept your insurance will save you frustration later on. The most popular insurance companies in the Denver Area are Anthem Blue Cross, Cigna, Kaiser Permanente, and Optum (United). With nearly 250 therapists, it’s very likely one of our providers will accept your plan. Check out our insurance page to narrow down providers by insurance accepted.

2. Find A Therapist Near You

The truth is that therapy must also be easily accessible to be effective long-term. If your therapist’s office requires a lengthy commute, chances are you’ll find yourself rescheduling appointments often. Our therapists have convenient locations in Denver and surrounding areas such as Golden, Lakewood, Aurora, Westminster, Greenwood Village, Wheat Ridge, Highlands Ranch, Boulder, and Littleton. Find a therapist near you to minimize the time you spend in traffic.

3. Therapist Specialties Are Important

Therapists must undergo various trainings before assisting clients with specific issues, concerns, and goals. Working with a therapist who has received the training necessary to help you is critical. The most popular specialties among our therapists are marriage therapy, grief counseling, family counseling, anxiety, depression, EMDR, panic attacks, couples counseling, child therapy, adolescent therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, OCD therapy,  grief, PTSD, drug and alcohol abuse, young adults, LGBTQ+, and geriatric therapy. Visit our specialty page for a full list of specialties and therapy approaches.

4. Consider Online Therapy

If you are having difficulty finding a therapist near you who accepts your insurance and specialization you seek, online therapy may be a great option for you! The sessions happen over your phone or computer and are powered by HIPAA compliant security standards. Online therapy sessions are covered by most plans. Learn more about online therapy.
