Light of the Rockies FAQ’s
Do you take insurance?
Yes, we have counselors who are in network with Anthem, Tricare and Veterans Affairs. Once you’ve met your deductible, you just pay your copay. If the provider is out of network, you can still use your insurance, but you will be responsible for submitting your own insurance claims.
Does Light of the Rockies have a sliding fee scale?
Yes. If you are not using insurance, you may opt to use the sliding fee scale if you are making less than $120,000 per year. Our full-fee sessions cost $130 for a 50-minute session, for those making more than $120,000 per year for their household income. Household income can be verified with your W-2, 1040, or two paystubs.
Do you see children for therapy?
Yes. We see children as young as three years old. About 1/2 of our therapists see children and all of our counselors see teens. For children who need counseling, many therapists will utilize the playroom with various toys for the children to express themselves, verbally and through play.
Do your counselors do marriage and couples counseling?
Yes. Most of our therapists see couples and do marriage work. When you call to make an appointment, make sure to mention it, if this is the work you’d like to do. Regular session fees apply.
Are you counselors professionally trained?
Our therapists are all clinically trained and hold a Master’s degree in a counseling field. All of our therapists are Bible believing Christians who give guidance that would all be in line with what the Bible teaches. We integrate our faith into our studies of the clinical/psychological curriculum.
Do you see people who aren’t Christians?
Absolutely! We respect the diversity of our clients. We counsel from the need of the client, and if they are open to thoughts about spiritual topics, those may come up in our discussions. It’s our job as Christians to love people. We don’t try to persuade people to go to church or to have a relationship with God. We work with clients based on the needs they have and the reason they came to counseling.
Do you do conversion therapy?
No. It’s illegal in many states. We see clients who are questioning their sexuality and meet them where they’re at.
Which kinds of therapy do your counselors offer?
Many of our therapists counsel from a wide variety of psychologically sound theories, and do not hold to just one theory for all counseling needs.
- CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy)
- EMDR (Trauma therapy)
- Family Systems Theory
- Marriage Therapy
- Narrative Therapy (Story based)
- Structural Therapy
- Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT)
- Grief Counseling
- Positive Psychology
- Psychodynamic Therapy
Do your counselors prescribe medications?
No. If you and your counselor decide that medicine would be helpful for your mental health needs, your counselor can work with your prescribing doctor (family doc or psychiatrist, psychiatric nurse practitioner, etc.) to discuss how well your medicine is working, with a release of information. It may be possible for some people to utilize counseling and other non-medicine options.
Do you do Teletherapy?
Yes. In Colorado, we need to meet with a client in person for the first session. After that, we are able to do sessions via FaceTime, Skype, Zoom or phone calls, once a teletherapy form is signed. You can choose the format that you feel most safe using to have distance sessions with your counselor.
Do you see Missionaries?
Yes. We love to work with missionaries and their families! A few of our counselors specialize in this work. In most cases, we are able to see a missionary who is overseas up to 30 sessions in a year without having first seen the person in the office, because of the circumstance of the missionary being overseas. We do need to verify your identity to do this kind of work.
Are your counselors trauma informed?
Yes. Many of our counselors do EMDR to help people who have experienced some kind of trauma.
Do you have counselors who have experience working with active duty military and/or veterans?
Yes — some of our counselors have a great deal of experience in this area, and are prepared to help.
Are there group counseling sessions offered at Light of the Rockies?
Yes, at certain times in the year. We have held groups for the following issues:
- Men’s Anger
- Abusive Relationships
- Bipolar II
- Pre-marriage mentoring
