consultation and scheduling

I do all of my own consultation and scheduling as I believe it is important for me to be accessible to my clients. For a free 15 minute phone consultation to discuss your reasons for seeking therapy and if I may be a good fit for your needs, please call 720.588.0836 or email lisa@lisanelsonlcsw.com and I will get back to you within 24 hours if I am not immediately available. If I cannot meet your needs, I will provide you with guidance through referrals. If you prefer to schedule online, you may do so with the online client portal. I will email you paperwork that you may fill out prior to your appointment.


When you arrive

You may arrive a few minutes early to fill out paperwork in the lobby. I will answer any questions you have. Our first session will be spent discussing your treatment goals. If you choose to use insurance (Medicaid - Access Behavioral Care  or CHP+ through Access Colorado only) I will have to document a diagnosis, for billing purposes. My certified therapy dog, Ruby, is usually present for sessions. If you are not comfortable with Ruby in the session, she can be on a leash or in her safe space.


follow up

During your initial session, we will discuss the recommended frequency of your treatment and the financial and scheduling variables on your life to agree on a plan going forward. Therapy is a commitment and I will work with you to the best of my ability to make a plan that is feasible for you.
