Some of the issues we help our clients overcome at
Denver Men’s Therapy
Stress and Anxiety: Relieve stress with counseling
Even though each and every person and situation are unique, stress and anxiety are common threads that nearly every person experiences to some degree in their life. But when the stress and anxiety start to take over your life, relationships, or jobs, then it is time to get it under control. No one is meant to live in pain and struggle. You deserve better. We all do. We want to help you overcome all the negativity and learn to love yourself and enjoy living your life again. Individual therapy for men is all about getting support and strategies to take control of your life and feel better.
Depression: It’s Common. There is hope
You might be surprised to hear that depression is a common issue among men. In fact, it’s more common than you might think. According to one large study, 30.6% of American men have experienced a period of depression over their lifespan. This same study found that men and women experience depression at the same rate. The bad news is that left untreated, depression can become more chronic and in some situations lead to suicide. In fact, men greatly outnumber women in suicide rates. The good news is that Denver Men’s Therapy can help. We have a highly qualified team of therapists who specialize in Men and Depression.
Depression is not simply “feeling sad or down all the time.” Some of the symptoms of depression in men include:
- Lack of concentration
- Irritability, agitation
- Loss of interest in hobbies
- Sleep disturbances (trouble falling asleep or staying asleep)
Substance Disorder: When Alcohol and Drugs Get in the Way
Do you find it difficult to stop drinking, using drugs of any kind? You might tell yourself you can stop any time you want, but find it difficult? Have you tried to stop using pornogrophy but find you can not? You are not alone. This is a common problem many men face. The good news is there is help.
How do you know if you have a substance disorder? Substance use disorder (SUD), formerly known as addiction or substance abuse, occurs when you continue to use a substance or multiple substances knowing it’s potentially life-threatening. SUD can also affect your work and cause a severe strain on relationships with loved ones. If you are struggling with substance abuse, please reach out so we can help before it gets worse.
Work/Life Balance for Men: Having a Life Outside of Work is Key
Men are expected to take a more active role in the household and child rearing. Employment roles are changing and different than what used to be expected. And the notion of self care for men is a new and interesting concept. The most important part of navigating this new social landscape is finding balance between all three in a way that is healthy and helps to form and maintain healthy relationships. But with all this added pressure at home, plus the continuing pressure from work, many men can struggle with how to balance the two and it can lead to stress, anxiety, depression or even substance abuse. If you need help figuring out your healthy balance, our therapists have the tools and are ready to get to work for you.
Some Common Questions About Individual Therapy for Men
What is men’s therapy like?
Therapy is not a long open-ended conversation. Therapy involves three phases. The first phase involves both the client and therapist getting to know each other. During this time the history and course of the depression are understood. Then therapy goals are created. Goals keep the therapy on track. The next phase is the work to meet the goals. This is where the action starts. This phase often involves learning coping skills. Then identifying and resolving core issues related to the issues and struggles you are facing. The final phase of therapy starts once the goals have been achieved and therapy wraps up.
How long will therapy take?
This is a great question. However, it’s difficult to answer. Motivation, the severity of the symptoms and how stable the individual plays a major role in the length of therapy. To get a better idea of how long therapy might take for you, please call us at 720-295-4233.
