Crest Counseling

We're Easy To Work With


We're Here to Help

We believe people recover from extreme conditions, and we're here to facilitate the healing, growth, and learning required to move our client's lives forward.  

Owned and operated in Salida, CO, Crest Counseling provides a client-centered alternative helping people with emotional, behavioral, and substance misuse issues. 

We start where you are in the process of recovery and move at your pace. Treatment is a process unique to each person going through it.

Accepting Medicaid, CHP+, and most insurances, we provide a comprehensive menu of services  going as in-depth as you are comfortable. We can also provide some substance abuse services free via grant funding and through a sliding scale based on federal poverty guidelines. Just ask to see if you qualify. 

We're well integrated with the local medical community through First Street Family Health and Chaffee People's Clinic. Also, referrals can be provided for Psychiatric and Addiction Medicine needs. 

We find a way to work with anyone interested in improving his or her life. 

We help people rather than disorders. Our approach is friendly and relational; however, it remains clinical and professional. Here is more about our treatment philosophy.

Essentially, we assume little, take feedback, and are easy to work with. 

We provide a wide spectrum of Outpatient Services up to Intensive Outpatient Treatment. Our modalities range from behavioral to psychodynamic but are always tailored specifically to your needs. 

It is our intention to be the best behavioral health treatment team in the region. Our evidence is based on your results.
