Appointments

How do I make an appointment?

To arrange an appointment, call (970) 491-5991. We will conduct a brief intake over the phone and will be able to answer your questions, provide further information, and schedule an appointment for you with a therapist. Messages left on our answering machine are confidential and are returned promptly.

Therapy sessions are typically scheduled within one week of the initial phone call.

If you would like, you may fill out all of the forms (below) that pertain to you or your family so that you do not have to spend time filling these out when you arrive.

Fees

Therapy services are based on a reasonable sliding-fee scale, ranging from $22 to $70 per session, based on income and number of people dependent on that income. We accept cash, check, debit, or credit. We do not make change so please bring the exact fee if using cash.

Fees for Full-time Students
Therapy services for full time college or university students are $20 per session for those at CSU, UNC, FRCC, or other local institutions of higher learning.

Fees for CSU Commitment to Campus Clients
If you are a staff or faculty member at CSU, the University will subsidize 50% of your fee for the duration of therapy as part of their "Commitment to Campus." You pay the other 50% to your therapist each week by cash, check, debit, or credit card.

How long does the therapy last?
Each weekly therapy session is approximately 50 minutes long. There is no minimum or maximum number of sessions that you are required to attend. Because we understand the commitments of time, finances, and energy, we work from a brief therapy model.


Confidentiality

Will anyone know that I am coming to therapy?
All information provided by you during therapy sessions is legally confidential to persons or agencies outside of therapy. Such information can only be shared with your written permission, including whether or not you are a client at the CFCT, except for those instances mentioned below.

Information provided during therapy sessions may be available to the treatment team, including other therapists at the CFCT, CFCT administrative assistants, and clinical supervisors.

While all information is confidential, there are certain situations in which your therapist is legally bound to reveal information obtained during therapy to other persons or agencies without your permission. While this will be fully explained to you at your first appointment, these situations include:

  • If your therapist believes that you are in imminent danger to yourself.
  • If you threaten grave bodily harm or death to another person or directly endanger the life of another.
  • If your therapist suspects abuse or neglect of any child or adult over the age of 70.
  • If your therapist is ordered to release information by a court of law.
  • If you pose a threat to national security.
