Darren Baughman, MDiv, MEd, LPC

My passion is to see people living out God’s purpose for their lives with health and wholeness. At the heart of my work is a desire to share with people the expansive love of God; and to see this amazing love transform people’s lives and relationships. I would find it a great honor to meet you where you are and walk with you toward your goals.

I have experience in counseling children, teens, couples, and men and women of all ages. I have particular experience and training to help people with depression and anxiety, grief and loss,men’s issues (anger, self-worth, addiction), OCD, ADD/ADHD, relationship stress, spiritual direction, and career counseling. I also have a special ability and love for working with children. Light of the Rockies is equipped with a play therapy room to work specifically with children of all ages.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor through the State of Colorado with 12 years of experience in the field of professional and pastoral counseling. I have a Masters of Divinity from Fuller

Theological Seminary and served as Pastor to Youth and Families for six years. In 2011, I earned a Masters of Education in Counseling and Career Development from Colorado State University.

In 2013, I became an Ordained Minister through the Evangelical Covenant Church and I am a member of the Northern Colorado Alliance of Christian Counselors.

My clients often comment on the compassion they receive from me and the safety they feel to share their pain without fear of judgment. In an atmosphere of safety and respect, I have seen

clients make significant strides toward the life they want to live.

In regards to fees and payment, I offer many options to fit your budget. I can bill your insurance and accept a co-pay, or I offer a sliding fee based on your gross household income.

The way to know if I’m the right counselor for you is to schedule an appointment. I’m always happy to speak with prospective clients by phone. Such a conversation may help you decide if you want to schedule an appointment.

I invite you to call me at 970.581.8769. I look forward to hearing from you!
