Welcome to Therapy for Rebels
My name is Phoenix Rising, LSW (Ze/Zir or She/Her).
I'm a Highly Sensitive, Autistic, ADHDer.
I offer high quality, high impact therapy designed specifically for sensory neurodivergent people. I can help you move from feeling stuck, traumatized, and misunderstood to feeling safe, seen, and living your full expression.
I work with neurodivergent people ages 10+ and their families to address common challenges that neurodivergent people face, such as communication issues, academic problems, anger/irritability, social challenges, executive dysfunction, meltdowns, gender identity differences, sensory overload, intimate relationship issues, conflicts, chronic stress and complex trauma.
Please read more below to see if I am the right match for you! (Colorado residents only.)
I offer empowering neurodivergent-affirming services for ADHDers, Autistics and Highly Sensitive People. As a Highly Sensitive, AuDHDer myself, I understand how difficult it is to find professionals who really "get it" and can give empowering support.
My work aims to fill in the gaps that other professionals miss. I use a nervous system's perspective to address client's most difficult challenges, such as executive dysfunction, meltdowns, and complex trauma. I encourage building skills to adapt to life's challenges instead of learning to mask, people please, and be more "neurotypical." I take a holistic approach to address any physical causes of mental health issues that often get missed in traditional talk therapy.

Self-Pay Therapy for Ages 10+
I offer therapy for individuals who identify as neurodivergent, including ADHD, Autistics, Highly Sensitive People, LGBTQ+, gifted/talented, poly/ENM, psychedelic users, empaths, BIPOC and anyone who feels "different" from the mainstream. My fee is $205/45 minute session. I do not accept insurance or Medicaid. I am an Out of Network provider and can send you monthly superbills for reimbursement. Please note, I do not see couples. If you have Medicaid, I can not see you as a client.
Collaborative Family Sessions
These sessions are great for families who want to support their ND child (10-24 yo) and may be struggling to communicate, have frequent conflicts and meltdowns, are facing academic challenges, and want to create positive change within the family unit. You may often get unhelpful advice from professionals who don't really "get it", which can be counterproductive.
I work with families to identify current challenges and strategies to support the youth. This can include education on common neurodivergent traits, learning best practices for neurodivergent youth, making holistic lifestyle changes to address meltdowns/sensory overwhelm, communication strategies, addressing the causes of academic issues, and conflict management tools. I serve as an advocate and mediator for the youth neurodivergent client and changes families make is in support of them.
My fee for this services is $250 per 45 minute session.
I provide accommodations support for current clients, such as letters, attend 504/IEP meetings, care coordination, and advocacy. This service is great for those who are starting the 504/IEP process, are having difficulties with their school system recognizing and putting into place academic accommodations, or for those trying to get on disability. Please note, this service is only available for clients who are also doing individual therapy, collaborative family services and/or have completed neurodivergent neurotype assessments (see below).
Neurodivergent-Affirming Neurotype Assessments
Are you curious if you fit a neurodivergent neurotype, such as ADHDers, Autistics, or Highly Sensitive People? Have you already been diagnosed, but want more information on the positive traits of being ND?
I offer ND-affirming assessments to determine, which neurotype you are and what presenting traits you have. These assessments are different than diagnostic assessments, which focus on deficit traits only. My assessments include holistic traits of neurodivergent neurotypes and help clients to better understand themselves, their needs and their communication/social style. Assessments take two to five 45-minute sessions depending on individual factors.
Please note, I am currently under supervision for my LCSW license. My supervisor is Elena Davis, LCSW. Elena specializes in working with complex trauma, somatic therapies, LGBTQ+, and neurodivergence. She provides me excellent supervision and consultation. If you need to reach Elena for any reason, please do so at (720)988-5620.
Good Faith Estimate Disclaimer
You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost. Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services. You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees. Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service. If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
