Effective Therapy for a change

The Colorado Center for Clinical Excellence

how are we different?

We provide effective therapy, and have the data to prove it. We care, we are well-qualified, and we are accountable. How? By measuring the quality of our services with each client, and posting our results online. And, our peer-reviewed research on therapy effectiveness and measurement is published in top academic journals.

our practice makes perfect

Groups. It’s how we learn best. It’s how we tell our stories, feel heard, get feedback, and reconsider our sense of reality. Not only do our therapists work together in a group to improve our clinical skills, but our clients can also sign up for group. We say that “in group therapy, you learn what people are for.”

two convenient locations

We know that for the right therapist, you are willing to make the drive. And, luckily, we are right off the highway with offices at I-25 and Colorado Blvd (Denver), and I-25 and Belleview Ave (DTC/Greenwood Village). And both offices are within about 0.7 miles of RTD lightrail stations.

Work with the evidence-based therapists of The Colorado Center

We aim for the transformation and resolution of your difficulties, way beyond “managing the problem.” Effective psychotherapy helps you experience strength, meaning, and faith in your own power to improve your life.
