Riversage Family Counseling is excited to announce our new Telehealth Provider,

Holly Brooks, LSW.

Riversage aims to meet the varied needs of our rural communities. We recognize that
transportation time and costs can limit access to therapeutic services as well as the desire for
confidentiality in small communities. In our mobile lifestyle frequent travel can also interfere with
therapeutic consistency. These unique circumstances do not need to prevent anyone from
receiving the support they need in the difficult moments of life. Reach our today and we will
connect you with Holly so that you don’t need to wait any longer to get started!

Is Therapy Right for You? How Can Riversage Help?

Every individual faces unique challenges, and can be aided by different treatment modalities and approaches. We’ve pulled together some commonly-asked questions to give you some insight into what to expect.

Does Riversage Family Counseling take insurance?

  • Blue Cross Blue Shield
  • Medicaid
  • Medicare
  • Cigna
  • Aetna
  • United
  • Tri-Care
  • Bright health
  • EAP
Is it possible to self-pay?

Yes, you are welcome to self pay if that is preferable to you, or if you don’t currently have insurance that we take.

Do you offer a telehealth option?

Telehealth services are offered through our online HIPPA compliant electronic platform. We are only able to provide telehealth services to clients who live in Colorado.

How will therapy or counseling help me?

Individuals often seek therapy to resolve painful feelings, troubling thoughts, and distressing situations. 

Through therapy, our clients learn practical ways of coping with grief, stress, depression, anger, and much more. They are able to better understand themselves, their strengths and weaknesses, their relationships, needs, and patterns.

The results include a more purposeful and satisfying experience of life.

What is the first session like?

Your first session will create a time and space for you to meet your therapist. During the first session, the therapist will get to know you by asking some questions and will discuss your goals at your pace. You will also have an opportunity to ask any questions that may be on your mind.

If you are feeling nervous about talking to a therapist, this is a good opportunity to break the ice. The goal of the session is to instill a sense of safety and comfort.

We are a dog-friendly environment, and have our office dog Rio on site regularly! Rio is friendly and loves to greet people in the lobby, as well as other dogs. Our office also regularly has small children in the lobby, so should you choose to bring your dog with you to a session, please ensure your dog is pleasant with other dogs and children. By bringing your canine friend, you assume responsibility for liability of any incident that may occur.

Should you feel uncomfortable around dogs, please call our office number in advance of your sessions so we can adequately prepare our environment to be as comfortable as possible for you.
