Mt. Carmel Counseling Center

Our counseling team is here for you! We can support treatment services including, but not limited to: depression, anxiety, trauma or relationship struggles, PTSD and life transitions. We offer donation-based counseling services. You do NOT need a referral; you do NOT need to have insurance. You need only call to schedule your first appointment.

Through partnerships with local universities, Mt. Carmel is able to offer a range of counseling services for individuals, couples, families and children. We also have active group counseling opportunities. Treatment is provided by licensed professionals, post-grad/prelicensure therapists, and graduate interns supervised by an on-site supervisor who is a Licensed Professional Counselor. All clinicians are uniquely trained and experienced in providing military specific services. All of the graduate interns are chosen from the top accredited Universities along the front-range, have completed advanced coursework in mental health services, and provide confidential, trusted and supervised care. Many providers have either served or are military connected.

Interns are currently provided by Denver University, University of Colorado Colorado Springs, University of Northern Colorado, Regis University, Denver Seminary and Colorado Christian University.

Please feel free to take our Behavioral Health Assessment if you are unsure whether counseling might be helpful for you.

Ketamine Infusion Therapy

As an in-house partner, Military Matters Ketamine Clinic of Colorado offers veterans an innovative treatment opportunity that can help with a wide range of mental health and chronic pain conditions.  Conventional treatments aren’t always effective for everyone. In fact, up to 30% of Americans don’t respond to antidepressant medication and still suffer from their symptoms despite treatment. Ketamine infusions work differently than traditional antidepressant medication.

    • • Anxiety

 

    • • Chronic pain

 

    • • Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS)

 

    • • Depression
