Are things starting to get out of control?
Are you struggling with depression, anxiety or addiction but feel like you have no one to talk to and no one who would really listen?
Is 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. Keep in mind that one in five men will suffer from an anxiety attack at one point in their lives and that one in ten will battle depression. Other issues are less worrying but also more pervasive and can damage an individual’s well-being. If you are going through a rough patch in life right now, meeting with a highly trained and experienced professional 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 well over 10 years of experience in helping men overcome emotional trauma and cope with the struggles of life. I am here to tell you that things can and will get better when working to resolve they. I’ve seen it time and time again with my clients. And you can too.
Therapy can go a long way in helping you resolve problems that are causing you sleepless nights.
But how can you start your road to recovery? Choosing an excellent psychotherapist is a daunting task. First of all, you need them to be great at what they do. But it doesn’t stop there. You also want them to inspire confidence, exude trustworthiness, 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 that will determine whether or not the therapy will ultimately result in a success.
Some men find therapy to be something that other people need. Anything but them. Others feel that therapy is only for the weak. Many think they should be able to solve their own problems and don’t want to be a burden. Or, maybe you tell yourself that what you’re going through “isn’t a big deal.” Allow me to lay all those concerns to rest. I am a second-generation psychotherapist, licensed by the State of Colorado, and specializing in men’s problems, ranging from emotional trauma and work-induced stress to anxiety disorders and acute depression.
I’ve been practicing in the field of men’s psychology for over 10 years and I’m also a member of National Association of Social Workers and EMDR International Association. You will also find me advocating for increased visibility of men’s issues and actively participating in the activities of Sondermind, a local group of Denver mental health private practice professionals. This is because I know that men can get a lot out of just a few therapy sessions with someone they can relate to. Bottling it up inside or trying to talk to friends or family usually doesn’t make the situation better. Anyone can use a neutral party to bounce their feelings off of or go deeper into issues that your loved ones might be tired of hearing about, or at least that’s what you may be thinking in your mind. You are a human. Humans feel pain. That’s where therapy comes in.
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.
I’m one of Denver’s leading therapists for men and have been practicing for over 10 years, helping countless men get their lives back on track again. You can be one of them. Try putting in the effort and seeing what it’s like to be in a therapy session. You may be surprised that it’s not anything you had previously imagined. Men’s counseling is a way of opening the door for you to a potentially new life. One that you can be proud of. One that you can be happy being the main character in.
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.
No hassle, no commitment and nothing to lose. You’re simply saving yourself a spot. Just for you.
“Yes, Mr. Rodgers is his name! I have worked with Stephen for over a year now in a professional clinical setting in a school and in private practice. I have been truly amazed about how much knowledge and experience Stephen has surrounding the mental health field. Not only is counseling helpful it can also be fun! Counseling does not have to be scary or serious all of the time. Stephen brings a sense of humor. Every meeting there is laughter in the room. Stephen’s style is calming, fun, and supportive. Stephen would be a great person to have as a consultant/supervisor to help you improve your own skills! – K.B.P.
“I have known Stephen Rodgers on a professional level for many years and have been very impressed with his knowledge in the mental health field as well as his ability to build meaningful relationships. Stephen’s genuine and relaxed demeanor make it easy for one to build the necessary rapport that is essential in making positive changes in one’s life. Not only is Stephen approachable, but he also has the clinical skills to guide clients to meet their therapeutic goals in an individualized manner. He continues to grow as a therapist by attending trainings, workshops, and consulting with other fellow therapists. I highly recommend working with Stephen and know he will be able to assist you in making positive changes in your life.” – L.D.
“Stephen Rodgers is thoughtful, intuitive, kind and understanding. He truly knows how to let you just be yourself. Whether it is depression, anxiety, trouble at home, performance issues, trouble with relationships, loneliness or anything else you might be dealing with, Stephen Rodgers knows how to help you work through it, get clarity, and hopefully, get some peace of mind. Counseling has always been a relief for me when I have been going through tough times, but I know it is hard for men to seek it when they are experiencing one of life’s brutal moments…and there are a lot of those, as we all know. I would highly recommend talking to Stephen Rodgers. I would recommend Stephen to any one of my loved ones, friends or colleagues. – K.J.
I want to emphasize that there is absolutely no shame in asking for help.
Strong men recognize when they need a helping hand and are willing to ask for assistance before things start spiraling uncontrollably downwards. Anxiety, depression, emotional trauma and stress are everyday issues that can overwhelm the senses and rob you of the feeling of joy and fulfillment. If left unchecked, problems at home or at work, along with the scars of a previously sustained emotional or physical trauma will eventually spill into other areas of your life. 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. You can make your life great again and I can help you get there much faster! 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 ok too. My goal is to help you get better and I have no problem in directing you to a specialist who is the most equipped for handling your particular case. However, my area of expertise is broad so this is ultimately up to you. You are in the driver’s seat.
