Intensive, Team-based Treatment Program

CPW’s Intensive Team-based Treatment program provides individualized therapeutic, coaching and mentoring services. Our program offers services in Boulder and Denver that include intensive psychotherapy, family and parent support/coaching, DBT skills training, academic and career coaching, mentoring, and coordination with psychiatric services. We offer comprehensive strategies that encourage academic and career success, independent living skills, and wellness plans that incorporate exercise, nutrition, and mindfulness practices.

Group Private Practice

At the Collective, we offer treatment that creates constructive and meaningful change. We work with clients of all ages who present with a wide range of therapeutic needs. While some of our clients present with more serious affect regulatory difficulties, we also work with clients who present more with an interest in personal growth and development. We facilitate Dialectical Behavior Therapy skills training groups for adolescents and adults. We facilitate several psychodynamic therapy groups as well as consultation groups for clinicians.

We offer coaching and mentoring services as a supplemental, therapeutic support to psychotherapy. We collaborate with clinicians in the community to support their clients in following through with treatment goals, independent living skills, substance use support and overall health and wellness changes.

Psychological Training

CPW offers psychological training for psychotherapists in individual, group, and family therapy with an emphasis on modern psychoanalysis, attachment focused therapy, and dialectical behavior therapy skills training. We collaborate with professionals in the psychology field to offer contemporary, innovative trainings on a variety of topics.
