Denver Family Institute

A nonprofit organization

At Denver Family Institute (DFI), we believe quality mental health services should not be a luxury, but a necessity that is available to all families, couples, and individuals. Your donation to Denver Family Institute provides affordable counseling services to our community in a time of tremendous need.

DFI provides low-fee, strength-based counseling services to individuals, couples and families from all walks of life. 

DFI also provides an intensive Marriage and Family Therapy Training and Supervision Program which mentors the next generation of relational, strength-based therapists by providing quality services in their low-fee clinics. 


"I've never had a therapist as understanding and attentive." -DFI Client

“I don’t have to pay an arm and a leg to become a mentally and emotionally healthier individual.” -DFI Client

“She is definitely the best therapist I have had. She is great at creating a safe space for me to be as open and truthful without feeling shame or insecure. The tools she has provided has helped me greatly on my mental health path.” -DFI Client

“My therapist saved my marriage as well as my sanity and I will forever be grateful." -DFI Client

"We have made more progress with you in the last two months than we have in the last 11 years of doing therapy." -DFI Client

"I don’t think there is one part of my identity as a mental health professional that DFI didn’t help to shape." -DFI Alumni

"I have had training in a variety of mental health disciplines but because of DFI, I bring a systemic and relational lens to all the work I do. The systemic training is unmatched and the passion for relational work was inspiring. DFI was foundational to my identity as a therapist." -DFI Alumni

"My time at DFI was my most valuable experience in preparing for the therapy world. I can't imagine leaving my MSW program and being tossed into clinical work without my added experience at DFI. The wide variety of experiences and intensive supervision is absolutely why I graduated and felt confident as a therapist in the field." -DFI Alumni
