Elevating Community Mental Health
We offer low-cost and culturally sensitive mental health services to the Denver and surrounding communities. We provide individual, couple and family therapy to people of all ages and backgrounds. We also provide group therapy. We treat a diverse range of clients from immigrants and refugees to new and expecting parents. Our services are provided by master’s- or doctoral-level graduate students and supervised by licensed clinical professionals.
We have been a resource to the Denver Metro Area for over 40 years, and we are proud to contribute to the health and wellbeing of our community.
Our mission is to provide comprehensive graduate-level education in Clinical Psychology, Forensic Psychology, International Disaster Psychology: Global Mental Health, Sport and Performance Psychology, and Sport Coaching.

Since September 1976, the Graduate School of Professional Psychology (GSPP) has offered a Doctor of Psychology (PsyD) in Clinical Psychology, a degree that focuses on scientifically based training for applied professional work rather than on the more traditional academic-scientific approach to clinical training. Our main emphasis is on general clinical psychology with opportunities for some limited degrees of specialization.
Due to demand in the field for specialized mental health workers, we offers master's level training programs in three unique areas: forensic psychology, international disaster psychology, and sport and performance psychology. These programs combine general clinical training with specializations, and offer ample opportunity for students to apply their skills through field placements.
In addition to our degree-granting programs, we've added specialty tracks in Latinx psychology, military psychology, oncology psychology, substance use disorders and infant and early childhood mental health.
