FAQs

We have 2 office locations, one in Denver near City Park, and one near 285/Wadsworth area. We also do community based work so location varies although we work within a general area from 120th to the North, foothills to the West, Highlands Ranch to the south and C-470 to the East.
Appointments are typically 45 minutes to an hour but vary depending on needs of the client or the type of clinical work being done.
No, we do not have a psychiatrist on staff.
At High Mountain Counseling & Training Institute we strive to provide the highest level of clinical care that transcends the typical therapeutic dynamic in terms of limitations. We think outside the box, are experts and pioneers in our respective specialties, and are on the leading edge of forward and progressive thinking in the mental health world.
Typical hours are Monday through Friday 8AM to 8PM. Some clinicians work on Saturdays and some hours may vary depending on the type and location of service being provided. For example, intensive homebased services include a 24 hour crisis management program.
Each therapist has their own general cancellation policy. It is important you familiarize yourself with this before you begin treatment.
Yes. Each therapist has their own version of sliding scale policy. It is important you ask before you begin treatment.
Yes. Not all clinicians are on all insurance panels however. Generally, we accept BCBS, UBH, Cigna and some of their partner companies. Some therapists accept Victims Compensation as well. It is important you familiarize yourself with your insurance benefits. Many times copays and deductibles are so high, it is more advantageous for you to pay out of pocket or on a sliding scale than to deal with the hassle of using your insurance. Additionally, it is also possible to do reverse billing where you pay out of pocket, and our clinicians give you a breakout of your payment history so you can seek out reimbursement from your insurance.
Yes we take Medicaid that is managed by Access Behavioral Care and BHI INC (Denver, Arapahoe, Douglas & Adams Counties). We do not take Medicaid managed by Value Options otherwise known as Beacon Health that serves Jefferson County and some other rural counties in Colorado. Please find out who manages your Medicaid prior to calling. We also typically do not take cases or clients who have commercial insurance (like United, BCBS) and Medicaid.
Our fees are generally $140/hour, $105/45 minute session. This can vary slightly based on the therapist you are working with or the type of treatment you are receiving. For example, community based treatment can be $160/hour and for intensive home based treatment the fee can be $500/week.
It is our belief at High Mountain Counseling & Training Institute that counseling at many stages in a person or family’s life is helpful. We work hard to break the cultural stereotype that promotes shame if someone is seeing a therapist. All the clinicians who are part of this group have or are seeing therapists themselves or for their families or children. Seeking out help if you need it is a sign of strength not weakness. The most important component to determine if counseling would be helpful is to make sure it is a good fit between yourself and the therapist you choose; so in that regard potential clients are encouraged to shop around, ask good questions, be an informed consumer. Any clinician that becomes defensive at this probably someone you do not want to work with anyway.
