The Best Denver
Therapist For You
Growing Self Counseling and Coaching was founded in 2005 by Denver Psychologist and Marriage and Family Therapist Dr. Lisa Marie Bobby, starting in a tiny office in the Capitol Hill area of Denver.
We’ve since grown beyond Colorado therapy and have a close-knit community of carefully vetted therapists across the US and internationally — but we are still based in Denver. We have offices in Denver and Broomfield and a diverse team of highly effective Denver therapists with a variety of specialties.
Let us help you find the right Denver therapist for you.

What Our Clients Say
“Brittany leveraged different methods. Is very receptive to what “state” I’m in that day when I see her and focuses on what I need. She also listens, but questions where I need to think differently, or have a perspective I haven’t considered. Her overall ability to “be there” with the situation is something I really respect.”
“Seth is great. Very nice and compassionate. He does a good job of creating an open environment.”
“Brittany models compassion for me and invites me to feel my feelings. This helps me to remember to make space for feeling and self-compassion in my life. I think there is still a lot of work to do before I’ve reached my goals and I feel we are making progress.”
“Dr. Rachel was great. She was very easy to talk to and understanding. She made me feel comfortable talking to her.”
“Jennifer is a phenomenal listener and excellent in her communication with me. I am realizing that to be happy in a relationship, I must first be happy with myself. Jennifer is helping me to understand me. I believe this path of discovery is very important for me at this time. I am thankful for the opportunity to work with Jennifer.”
“I would highly recommend her. She’s a great listener, offers a kind perspective, and makes you feel warm and welcomed.”
“Kaily was extremely helpful throughout our process. She helped me realize my overall self worth more than I previously had and the worksheets we did really helped point out those qualities that I can show potential partners, along with really determining what I’m looking for.”
“I felt that Whitney was very sincere and that she genuinely wanted to help me get through things.”
“Seth is fantastic, really listens and addresses issues in an effective way. Very kind, understanding and non judgemental. Easy to talk to.”
“Paige has been great. Thus far she has been a good listener. We’ve started to talk about some strategies/tactics to help with what I am dealing with and I feel really good about that. I leave each session feeling refreshed and much better than I felt before speaking with her.”
“Stephanie truly seemed to care and I felt a connection where it was easy to communicate. In a short amount of time, I truly think she can help me get things sorted out.”
“I am incredibly grateful I sought her [Kathleen’s] help and the “coaching” style, as opposed to traditional talk therapy, helped me immensely. It made me feel normal, relatable, and like I had control again and made better choices.”
“Kathleen has exceeded my expectation. I appreciate the judgement-free space she creates. She gave me perspective on issues I described. I love the way her brain makes connections. Also helpful: “homework.””
“I love her, she was honestly amazing and seemed like a friend. You found a star here.”
“We’ve only had two sessions but I feel positive that real change can happen based on some very tangible exercises she has taught me.”
“Dori is very helpful and kind. She often sends me homework to do between sessions. I feel like she doesn’t judge me and is very patient with talking about similar themes I’m struggling with each week. I tend to hold back but I’m feeling very comfortable talking about soo many things with Dori.”
“She [Kathleen] has been understanding and I do not feel like I’m being judged.”
“Polly helped me organize the many issues I am facing which allowed me to work on each. She pulled me out from being under water in an ocean of grief and I am so grateful to her!”
“Meagan asks me questions that make me see something in a different light that helps me understand my feelings and reactions better.”
“She is very quick to adapt. She is also very insightful into reading the emotions behind the words I’m saying and tackling those issues. She makes sure during each session that I am comfortable with the direction we are going in.”
“If you feel like you’re struggling with something in your life you probably are. Don’t downplay it and convince yourself it isn’t a problem. Doing sessions with Dori has helped me a lot already. I’m able to feel happier and understand my limitations and how to work on them. Thinking back a few weeks and comparing them I’m already seeing a big difference in my life and thoughts.”
“Lisa is very patient and attentive while I try to explain myself. And she has good feedback without sounding preachy or condescending.”
“Lisa is compassionate, kind, understanding, and offers pearls of wisdom that are targeted exactly for what I am experiencing. I’ve seen several counselors over the years and she is top notch!”
“I consider it a privilege to have worked with Polly, and would highly recommend her to anyone. Polly is a genuine gift to the mental health community and to those suffering from any sort of personal conflict.”
“Jessica is amazing and a very skilled therapist.”
“Sara was awesome. Warm, intelligent, empathetic, encouraging.”
