Clinical Services 

The Women’s Behavioral Health and Wellness Service provides patient-centered and evidence-based care to promote wellness in women across the lifespan. Our interdisciplinary team works collaboratively with primary care providers and specialists to provide consultative services and problem-focused care for women with behavioral health concerns related to periods of reproductive transition or medical conditions or treatment impacting reproductive hormones and well-being. 

We are committed to providing a safe, inclusive, and equitable space that fosters healing and connection. These services are available to patients across Colorado and most services can be accessed virtually via telehealth. We accept Medicaid and most health insurance plans.

Healthy Expectation Intensive Outpatient Program (see more here)

IOPs provide care for individuals who would benefit from more than what is typically provided in an outpatient level of care.  They are designed to help individuals start the path to recovery  quickly and to lay the foundation for long-term success in their treatment.


The Healthy Expectations IOP is specifically designed to help individuals experiencing mood or anxiety challenges during pregnancy or the first year postpartum. You are welcome to bring your baby with you to be cared for in our adjacent playroom!

  • Problem-focused Medication Management for women who desire treatment with a reproductive psychiatrist either during the perinatal period or while establishing a longer-term treatment plan for psychiatric care in the context of reproductive transition or medical treatment impacting reproductive hormones and well-being
