Frequently Asked Questions
Where will we meet for therapy?
Brave Therapy is a clinic-less practice in order to better serve our clients in their real world environments. We occasionally meet in an office or study room, but prefer most sessions to happen in your home or other real life environments.
We also offer on-line tele-health visits in combination with in-person sessions, or for people who live outside the Front Range area of Colorado.
We will work with you to determine the best arrangements for meeting together!
Do I need a doctor’s order?
No, Colorado is a direct access state, which means you can chose to start therapy without a doctor’s order. However, be aware that some insurance companies may require an order to reimburse you for services. It’s always a good idea to check your benefits first.
What will therapy cost?
The cost for our therapy is calculated on therapy codes used for medical billing and time is billed in 15 minute increments. Our pricing is comparable (or less) than other local occupational therapy services.
We will endeavor to work within your budget, but you can expect in-person sessions to be a minimum of 75 minutes. In office or study room visits are a minimum of one hour, online visits are a minimum of 30 minutes. Contact us to discuss your financial questions in more detail.
Rising Strong and group therapy sessions are priced individually, based on the group and length of time, and are an affordable option.*
*We travel to other types of clinics (PT, Massage, Counseling, Medical, etc.) to offer groups. Contact us for more information on the types of groups we offer.
will you give a presentation?
Yes! Both Linda and Denise are experienced speakers, educators, and presenters. We have given presentations at the community, state, and national levels.

Do you take insurance?
Brave Therapy is considered by most insurance companies to be an out-of-network provider of occupational therapy services. As a small private practice we do not bill insurers but are a pay-at-the-time-of-service practice. We will then provide you with a detailed receipt you can submit to your insurance company for reimbursement.
To check your benefits for our services, contact your insurance provider and ask about your “out of network occupational therapy benefits.” We are happy to complete pre-authorization forms when necessary.
*Please note: We are unable to accept Medicare clients except for group classes. We are also unable to accept Medicaid clients at this time.
what geographic areas do you serve?
As a clinic-less practice, we are able to travel to serve clients within a large geographic area of the Front Range of Colorado. This area extends from Colorado Springs to Fort Collins and Greeley.*
We also offer online tele-health sessions for people outside our area or in combinations with in-person visits.
*Please note: Colorado Springs, Fort Collins, Greeley and occasionally other areas (depending on the therapist) will require an additional travel fee. This will be discussed and negotiated with your therapist based on the mileage from our standard travel area.
Do you treat children and teens?
Yes. We treat kids 8 - 17, and adults 18 and up. Contact us to find out if our services can be helpful for your child.
how long will therapy last?
Our therapy is a highly individualized, person-centered, and in-depth whole-person, whole-life approach and process. We ask most of our new clients to commit to two visits a week (in person or virtual) for a minimum of 4-6 weeks, after which we re-evaluate, with a goal to gradually reduce frequency as you gain the skills you need.*
There are no “quick fixes” offered with Brave Therapy, as the body and nervous system are designed to change slowly. It takes patience and persistence to make life-long changes and we celebrate every small victory!
*Complex pain and health conditions may require longer, more frequent sessions in order to help you achieve the results you want.
