I help men who feel like things have gotten out of control rebuild their lives and feel cool, calm and collected again.
Are you struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma or out of control anger but feel like you have no one to talk to and no one who would really listen?
Is family and work-related stress grinding you down? Or, are things from the past holding you back?
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 therapist will help you get things back on track much faster than you could get them there by yourself.
My name is Stephen Rodgers. I am a licensed therapist with more than 14 years of experience in helping men overcome emotional trauma and cope with the struggles of life.
Therapy can go a long way in helping you resolve problems that are causing you sleepless nights.
Therapy Is A Very Effective Treatment For Mental Wellness
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 the flu vaccine.
I Specialize In Men’s Issues
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.
Work-induced stress will start causing marital problems and will even creep up into your bedroom, causing even more stress, embarrassment, and shame. Private issues will become baggage you will be carrying with you to work, causing under-performance and reducing your self-esteem, maybe even getting your coworkers frustrated with you, causing alienation and loneliness at your job.
Don’t allow things to go that far. Take your life into your own hands and steer clear of common pitfalls that so many men walk right into every day.
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
Choosing the right therapist is essential to recovery
Choosing an excellent psychotherapist is a daunting task. 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.
For many men, going to therapy is a sign of weakness. It’s what we’ve been taught by our parents and family, by our peers and by society as a whole. It’s an admission that we can’t solve our problems ourselves,
Despite what we’ve been taught, it’s okay to admit we need help. Admitting we have a problem and seeking help doesn’t make us weak. In fact, it’s a sign of strength.
Taking steps toward healing ourselves through therapy shows we aren’t afraid to face our pasts and that we can embrace change.
And we are all the better for it.
What to expect from your first visit
During your first session 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 will be able to 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 issues and to assist you in resolving them so that you can start truly living again. Your sessions are private and confidential and we will work together on resolving the root causes of the problems which are preventing you from enjoying your life to the fullest.
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.
Try one session to see if we are a good fit
You might have preconceived notions of what therapy looks like. But you may be surprised at what you discover if you give it a try.
Scheduling a session is a great way of finding out whether or not a psychotherapist is a good fit for you. Remember, we’ve already established that you won’t get too far with therapy unless you feel comfortable with your therapist. This is the reason why I’m giving you this test drive opportunity.
No hassle, no commitment and nothing to lose. You’re simply saving yourself a spot. Just for you.
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.
