For many people in the Denver metro area, taking care of one’s mental health can be a real challenge.
We all know someone who could benefit from seeing a counselor, but the reality is that it’s often seen as a luxury that’s not affordable. With housing prices and the cost of living continuing to rise, many people neglect taking care of themselves mentally.
Fortunately, South Platte Counseling now includes low-cost therapy and support groups. We offer affordable pricing from $80-$200/session, with in-office or online/telehealth options. Seven highly qualified therapists are available Monday through Saturday during daytime and evening hours. We’re located near south Denver, Swedish Medical Center, and a short walk from RTD’s Englewood station.
South Platte Counseling therapists treat individuals and couples who may be struggling with one or more issues:
Grief and profound loss
Substance abuse (alcohol and drugs)
Childhood sexual abuse
When helping our clients with these issues, we use various types of therapy, including:
Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT)
According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), more than half of all Americans who need mental health services do not seek treatment. Why? The top reasons are lack of accessibility and affordability.
People have many reasons why they don’t seek out help even though they know could benefit from it. Some reasons include:
- You don’t qualify for Medicaid, and there’s just not enough to income to pay all the expenses each month.
- You don’t want to go through insurance, which requires a medical diagnosis and becomes part of your permanent health record.
- You can’t find a convenient time to go or an accessible location.
While the cost of living in the Denver metro area continues to rise, it doesn’t mean that people can no longer afford to take care of themselves. At South Platte Counseling, we believe everyone should have access to quality and affordable mental health treatment-the same as any other health issue.
