Frequently Asked Questions About Counseling and Therapy

What is counseling?
Counseling is a collaboration between counselor and client. Together, you and your counselor identify challenges in your life and create solutions to help move your life in a positive direction. Foundations Counseling lays the groundwork for individuals, couples, and families to strengthen their self-esteem, build better communication, and promote behavior change. We believe everyone has the potential to build a better life.

How can counseling help me?
There are times in life when certain issues or life events can cause emotional distress, put a strain on relationships, or make it feel like your world is crumbling. Foundations Counseling offers the caring, expert assistance that you need during these stressful times. We can help you find new ways to cope with the challenges in your life.

What can I expect at a counseling session?
We strive to make the counseling atmosphere relaxed, comfortable, and free from judgment. During your initial free session, we will discuss your current situation and relevant history. From there, each counseling session is constructed from the goals you have identified as the basis for your growth.

What type of training do your counselors have?
Every one of our therapists has either a Master’s or Doctoral degree in counseling or psychology. Each is registered in the state of Colorado to practice counseling. Each counselor has specialized training and expertise in several specific areas of therapy. Please review each counselor’s bio for more information regarding his or her specialized advanced training.

Do you offer counseling services for children and teenagers?
Yes. Children and teenagers are often helped by having their own individual sessions, sometimes in combination with family counseling. Teenagers can play an active role along with their counselor in deciding what will work best for them. Younger children usually benefit most from play therapy.

Are my sessions confidential?
As a client, you are guaranteed the protection of confidentiality within the boundaries of the client/counselor relationship. The only limitations to confidentiality occur when clients are considered either a threat to themselves or someone else, or when legal requirements demand that confidential information be disclosed. Please contact us if you have any questions regarding our confidentiality policy.

Are you available in the evenings or on weekends?
Foundations Counseling offers flexible early morning, daytime, evening, and Saturday appointments. Please contact us at 970-227-2770 to arrange a session that fits your schedule.

How much does counseling cost?
We offer a free initial consultation to all new clients. Thereafter, each individual, couples, or family counseling session costs $120. For your convenience, we accept cash, checks, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express.

What if I need to cancel my counseling session?
There is no charge for any session cancelled at least 48 hours prior to the scheduled appointment time.

Will my insurance company pay for counseling?
Many insurance plans reimburse for a portion of therapy. Please direct questions about reimbursement amounts and timeliness to your insurance company. Foundations Counseling therapists are not contracted (preferred provider or in-network) with any insurance company. Out-of-network benefits vary from plan to plan. For details, contact your insurance carrier and ask about “out-of-network” benefits for “outpatient mental health services.” Upon request, we are happy to provide you with a statement for therapy that you may submit to your insurance company for reimbursement.

Why doesn’t Foundations Counseling accept insurance?
Choice: You and your counselor are in charge of goals, length of treatment, and therapeutic choices.
Savings: You pay less because we don’t spend valuable time on insurance paperwork.
Privacy: Insurance companies require a diagnosis to authorize treatment. These negative labels can follow you throughout your life and interfere with your insurability down the road. Your files are not shared with anyone outside of our organization without your permission.

How can I schedule an appointment?
Please call us at 970-227-2770 or contact us online using our Initial Consultation Form.

We will make every effort to return your phone call the same day (usually within a few hours), and we can typically accommodate new clients within a day or two.
