Top Denver Therapists Who Specialize in Marriage Counseling and Couples Therapy Throughout the Metro Area
It can be very difficult to find a Denver area psychiatrist who is available and who accepts private health insurance, much less Medicaid and Medicare. Even when one is found, the waiting period to get in can be months.
“I called psychiatrists’ offices until I was blue in the gills,” said David. “Everyone was full. I just couldn’t get in.”
Needing therapy, too, David arranged counseling with a therapist at Westside Behavioral Care, which has locations across the entire greater Denver area. To his surprise she offered to help him find a psychiatrist.
David: “My therapist said that Westside has relationships with some psychiatrists in Denver and even knows people within various insurance companies. With her help I got in!”
