Cari Ladd, LCSW

Cari is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 15 years’ experience working in Community Mental Health Centers in both New York and Colorado. Two years ago, she was selected to spearhead one of the most innovative new programs in Colorado: a low barrier and immediate online therapy service called TherapyDirect, created to address the stark reality that more people are seeking mental health support than there are clinicians providing services.

Cari has made numerous local TV media appearances, created vlogs for local organizations and been interviewed in print and online media discussing a variety of mental health topics including managing stress, compassion fatigue and the impact of trauma. She has created mental health programming presented throughout the business community, offering education about stress and burnout and teaching practical strategies for creating a culture of well-being in the workplace. Cari has a passion for mental healthcare access advocacy, specifically for underserved populations. She is a member of the Leadership Denver class of 2024 and was named to the Denver Business Journal’s 2024 40 Under 40 list.
