Where are you located?
Front Range Treatment Center is located in the Denver Tech Center, at 6075 South Quebec Street, Centennial, CO, 80111.
What types of therapy do you offer?
Front Range Treatment Center has a comprehensive Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) program, including individual therapy, DBT skills groups, and DBT phone coaching. DBT is a type of therapy designed for persons with borderline personality disorder, but helpful to persons with many other issues.
Our clinicians also use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to address many issues, such as depression, anxiety, trauma, addition, and more. One specific, time-limited treatment we use is called the Unified Protocol, used for the treatment of mood disorders such as anxiety and depression.
We use only methods shown by research to be effective. Learn about evidence based treatments below.
All services are out-patient. We do not offer inpatient or residential services. We also do not offer court-ordered domestic violence classes.
What is “evidence based treatment”?
At Front Range Treatment Center, we deliver "evidence based treatment." So, what exactly does that mean?
Evidenced based treatment is a concept that guides clinicians in making decisions about client care. It means the therapist will consider three factors when determining the best course of treatment:
Client preferences and values
The best, most up-to-date research evidence regarding the best treatments
All therapist use the first two factors. The third is what sets evidenced based treatment care apart: the therapist is committed to only using the best treatments with the most research support. Many therapists believe that professional ethics requires them to only use methods shown by research to be effective. That way, the client is getting the most value possible, with the highest chance of a positive outcome. Evidenced based treatments allow for flexibility and can be tailored to an individual’s specific needs, which can only be done after a clinical assessment from the provider.
Division 12 of the American Psychological Association maintains a list of empirically supported treatments, some of which include Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Exposure Therapies, all of which are offered at Front Range Treatment Center.
A closely related concept is evidence-based practice. Evidence-based practice is the application of scientific principals and methods to each and every client. The evidenced-based clinician is always collecting information, forming hypotheses, applying interventions, measuring outcomes, and making modifications to treatment.

What should I expect before my first appointment?
In order to give our clinicians the information they need and save time during your intake appointment, you will receive emails requesting that you complete paperwork.
The first email email contains a link to your secure client portal. Through this account you complete your new client paperwork. This paperwork includes a personal history and several questionaries, which allows your clinician to collect a helpful background information before you meet.
In a separate email, you will contain a link to fill out forms we are required to collect by law. Please read through these documents carefully and follow the instructions to sign them.
Cancellation policy: If you need to cancel or reschedule your first appointment, call or email us at least 24 hours before your appointment.
What will the first appointment be like?
During your first appointment, you and your clinician will begin to get to know one another. You will discuss your personal history, the reasons for your visit, and your goals for therapy.
Your clinician will discuss with you what therapy will be like, and you may start to learn some some helpful skills and concepts. They will also conduct a thorough assessment, and develop a preliminary treatment plan. Treatment plans are re-evaluated often as you make progress and your goals change.
Before the end of your first appointment, you and your clinician will schedule your next appointment. It is helpful if you can schedule a consistent time to meet. Having a designated appointment slot makes it more likely you will be able to see your clinician each week.
