About Foundations Counseling

Foundations Counseling provides a broad range of high-quality mental health and relationship counseling with an extraordinary level of service. They have helped thousands of individuals and families in Northern Colorado improve their own mental health and relationships.

The challenge

Due to Foundation Counseling’s success in serving people and the extraordinary need for mental health services, there was much more demand for their services than their current team could accommodate. FC needed several new, high-quality counselors to join their team.


Our approach

Foundations Counseling leadership knew that standard recruiting approaches were not working. Our methodology helped them take their recruiting to the next level.

Together we recrafted the job posting to stand out and reflect the unique qualities of FC that would appeal to applicants. Working side-by-side with Foundations’ leadership, we also collectively identified additional niches to source and find candidates.

Together, a consistent strong cadence of sourcing, being responsive to candidates, and moving quickly was established and streamlined. Consistency and speed are an unglamorous and critical factor in recruiting that is often overlooked. The Foundations team was excellent at collaborating which helped reinforce the strong impression to candidates.


The results

In a few months’ time, 6 new high-quality counselors were added to the Foundations Counseling team. This allowed Foundations to meet the needs of Northern Coloradoans by adding hundreds of available counseling sessions each month. This added recurring revenue to Foundations which was many times their investment with TTC. Just as importantly, Foundations was able to integrate other effective tools and approaches into its ongoing recruiting strategy.

“Now we can serve so many more of the people who can benefit from our services,” Chris Berger, Founder and CEO of Foundations Counseling said. “I’m very pleased with our collaboration with Turning the Corner – they put themselves in our shoes and delivered.”
