Men’s Counseling

Counseling for Men

Have things gotten out of control?
Enough is enough. You can be happy again.

You might have preconceived notions of what therapy looks like, but you may be surprised at what you discover when you give it a try.

I offer men’s counseling and EMDR therapy in Denver to help men rebuild their lives and feel cool, calm and connected again. I am here to tell you it is completely normal to need someone to talk to when you are struggling with depression or anxiety, facing addiction, have out of control anger, need help healing from a past trauma, or family and work-related stress is weighing you down.

There comes a point in every man’s life when things start taking a turn for the worse. It is important that you know that you are not alone. 

  • 1 in 5 men will suffer an anxiety attack at one point in their lives
  • 1 in 10 men will battle depression at least once in their lives
  • The suicide rate of men is four times that of women

If you are going through a rough patch in life right now, meeting with a highly-trained and experienced professional men’s therapist will help you get your life back on track much faster than you could get them there by yourself. Therapy can go a long way in helping you resolve problems that are causing you sleepless nights.

Why struggle alone? Book with me today and lets you back on track

Therapy Is a Very Effective Treatment

for Mental Wellness

Benefits of psychotherapy include:

  • Long-lasting positive effects on your well-being and life
  • Ability to reduce physical symptoms and relieve pain
  • Dealing with underlying causes of problems that are causing you distress
  • Understanding that you are not alone and that help is just around the corner

Did you know that paying for psychotherapy actually saves you money? 

Multiple large studies show that people who complete therapy reduce their overall health care costs, more than enough to cover the cost of psychotherapy. 

The effectiveness of psychotherapy is greater than taking aspirin to reduce heart attacks. SSRIs for depression. Cataract surgery. Heart bypass surgery to treat thrombosis (blood clots that block blood flow to the heart) and even the flu vaccine.

I am a second-generation psychotherapist, licensed by the State of Colorado, and I specialize in men’s problems, ranging from trauma, work-induced stress to anxiety disorders and chronic depression

I’ve been practicing in the field of men’s psychotherapy for over 14 years. I am a Certified EMDR Therapist and EMDRIA Approved Consultant (meaning I provide EMDR consultation to other therapists). I founded and run Denver Men’s Therapy. We are a group of EMDR trained therapists who all specialize in working with men. I am proud to say we are the first and only EMDR and Men’s Therapy group practice in Colorado. 

I provide local and regional training on issues related to Men, Mental Health and Trauma. You will also find me advocating for increased visibility of men’s issues.

Anxiety, depression, trauma, and stress are issues most of us experience. Left untreated they can become overwhelming and rob you of the feeling of joy and fulfillment. They can also lead to problems in our important relationships, work and doing what we love. Things can start to feel out of control. 

How do you choose the right therapist for you?

Choosing an excellent psychotherapist is a daunting task, but it is essential to recovery. First, you need them to be great at what they do. But it doesn’t stop there. You also want them to inspire confidence and be able to offer actionable advice that you can use to better your life. 

Above all else, you need someone who you feel comfortable talking to since trust determines whether or not the therapy will result in success.

Scheduling a session is a great way of finding out whether or not a psychotherapist is a good fit for you. I encourage you to book an appointment so we can have an hour to get to know each other on a deeper level to see if we work well together. But if you are still undecided, I would be happy to chat quickly over the phone to hear a little bit about your journey and see what you are looking for in a therapist, as well as explain the work I do and how it can benefit your unique situation. Call me today and let’s chat about how I can help you.

During your first session with me, you will be able to:

  • Get to know me personally and see that I’m a regular guy that happens to have the right set of tools and skills you can benefit from on your road to recovery
  • Talk a bit about what is troubling you and how it affects your personal and professional life
  • Tell me more about the goals you’ve set for therapy and what you hope to achieve with it
  • Ask me questions about my work, my credentials, my experience with therapy and how it generally feels to be the patient (because I’ve been on that side of the couch as well), or anything else that will help you relax and be more comfortable.

You can choose a date and book a time slot that is most convenient for you at the click of a button. After that, you will be prompted to leave your details and you will receive a confidential email confirming your appointment. 

It is my job to help you find the underlying causes of your depression, anxiety, anger, addiction or any other issues you are facing and to assist you in resolving them so that you can start truly living again. Each therapy session is private and confidential where we will work together on resolving the root causes of the problems which are preventing you from enjoying your life to the fullest.

After your first counseling session, we will both decide together whether or not we are a good fit for each other. If I feel that you would benefit more from talking to one of my colleagues who specialize in whatever seems to be the issue you’re having, I’ll recommend them. 

In turn, if you decide therapy isn’t for you or you want to meet with someone else, that is perfectly okay too. 

Are things feeling out of control? Remember many things in life are out of our control. We can make choices in how we respond. We can also take healthy action, like deciding to improve our mental health.
