PRIVATE THERAPY

Living Journeys provides referrals for free, licensed professional therapists who can help supply clients, their caregivers, children and family members with important tools to manage fear, anxiety and stress that accompanies a cancer diagnosis.  Private therapy requests will be considered through all stages of the cancer journey; whether you are currently in treatment, recovery, have or lost a loved one with cancer you can apply for a private therapy grant.

Private therapy grants are offered in groups of 10 sessions per request.   At the end of 10 sessions, should you need to continue with your therapy, you or your therapist may request another grant for 10 sessions. Living Journeys has a list of private therapists you may consider, or you may choose to use a therapist of your choice not currently listed.  For questions regarding how to choose a therapist, you may call 970-349-2777. To receive a private therapy grant you must be a Gunnison County Resident.

The first step is to fill out and return one of the application.
