We acknowledge that parents are the most influential people in their children’s lives. Parents participate with other families in weekly programming. We encourage siblings to attend. Additional parent coaching and family therapy is also available.
Experiential Therapy uses a variety of verbal and physical activities to address underlying thoughts, feelings, and attitudes. These activities can include, art, music, play/recreation, engaging with animals, and movement/adventure challenges. By using multiple modalities, experiential therapy can engage participants in the treatment process. Experiential therapy is effective in treating a range of issues including anxiety, depression, grief, trauma, and behavioral disorders.
Coordinating care and support is an important part of the treatment experience. We can communicate and collaborate with your child’s school and other professionals working with your family.
Our anticipated length of program is 9-12 weeks. Our Clinical team will work with your family to guide treatment. Together, we can make decisions regarding treatment progress and a plan for your family.

Good Faith Estimate for Health Care Items and Services (No Surprise Act) –
You have a right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost. Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services. You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees. Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service. If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate. For questions or information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises or call the Colorado Division of Insurance at 303-894-7490 or 1-800-930-3745.
It is not uncommon for a participant to resist support at times. Our team is here to support your family and will work with you to understand the emotions driving the refusal.
The Intensive Outpatient Program is intended to be in-person. Additional services such as parent coaching, family and individual therapy, and psychiatry will be available in person or virtually. In the case of health or safety concerns the intensive outpatient program may be temporarily offered virtually.
We focus on creating age-appropriate groups.
We are following the CDC Guidelines for K-12 Schools. These guidelines recommend multi-layered prevention including masking indoors, cleaning and UV disinfection, air filtration, and regular hand washing.
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy is an evidence-based type of psychotherapy that uses Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to identify negative thought patterns and emotions to improve associated behaviors. DBT interventions are delivered to children and adolescents in the Intensive Outpatient Program via multiple weekly group therapy sessions.
They will also be delivered to parents as part of the family curriculum to assist parents in understanding and supporting the skills their children are learning. DBT concepts will also be infused into experiential and multi-family interventions.
Emotionally-Focused Family Therapy is an evidence-based type of psychotherapy focused on emotional awareness to help caregivers effectively take an active role in healing the child or adolescent. EFFT uses a respectful and compassionate approach to identify emotional blocks in caregivers and family members that inhibit effective interventions.
EFFT interventions will be delivered to families in the Intensive Outpatient Program via weekly group therapy sessions (what we call “Family Night”), weekly parent coaching sessions, and as-needed family therapy sessions.
