We are a lost cost community mental health clinic, accepting Medicaid and Beacon Health. We offer trauma-informed traditional approaches plus somatic, transpersonal, contemplative and wilderness therapy approaches. Our clinicians are Masters level Interns as well as graduates of local counseling programs.
We offer support around difficult life transitions, grief and loss, depression, anxiety, trauma and "help for the helpers". Naropa Community Counseling began in 2015. The premise of Naropa Community Counseling is to bring the therapeutic modalities that Naropa is best known for (transpersonal, somatic and contemplative approaches) to the residents of Boulder, and to do so in a low cost, therapeutically effective way. Contemplative approaches are integrated with modern clinical practice to assist our clients in reaching the highest level of emotional and mental well-being.

Clinical supervisors at NCC are independently licensed, experienced, with many years of supervisory and clinical training, and review each intake for an appropriate match to an intern therapist or post graduate therapist.

The types of therapy offered are individual, family and couples, and the modalities offered include: • Somatic therapy: which focuses on the body's role in transforming behavior, integrating body awareness and movement with counseling skills • Contemplative therapy: which merges in-depth training in cultivating mindfulness and compassion with therapeutic work • Transpersonal therapy: which focuses on reconnecting the spiritual dimensions of human experience with traditional theoretical perspectives • Art therapy: which uses art and the creative process to enter into an authentic relationship with self, other, process and product. • Equine therapy: which uses horses to promote physical, emotional and occupational health • Change theory: utilizing the stages of change and motivational interviewing help create effective positive changes

The services that NCC offers do exclude work with people suffering from severe and persistent mental illness, primary addiction or medically complex issues, as these types of problems require a level of medical sophisticated treatment and/or case management, better offered at Mental Health Partners, the Addiction Recovery Center or People's Clinic.

There is a focus on group therapy at NCC. We offer the following weekly groups: Mindfulness Skills group, Men's group, and Acudetox.


Men's Group. Explore masculinity and vulnerability. Meets Mondays at 6pm.
Mindfulness Drop-in Group: Are you curious about meditation? Want to learn about mindfulness? Learn the basics of meditation and practice developing awareness in a supportive group setting. The group meets on Tuesdays at 6pm at Naropa Community Counseling Center, 1600 Range St. STE 202, Boulder
AcuDetox acupuncture: By utilizing five ear acupuncture points, AcuDetox is used to reduce symptoms associated with cravings and withdrawal from drugs and alcohol by calming the nervous system and building inner resources resulting in a greater sense of well-being and balance. It also has shown to benefit chronic stress conditions- PTSD, depression, anxiety, and disordered sleep. $5 suggested donation Meets Thursdays at 5pm at Naropa Community Counseling Center
