Mental Health Care in Denver, CO—Therapy and Counseling
With an advancing career, a gorgeous wife, and two young children, Randall’s life seemed perfect. He likes it that way—perfect. Unfortunately, all is not always what it appears to be. Randall lives a good life, but he has a secret. Since he was a child, he has struggled with anxiety. As an African-American adopted by Caucasian parents, he has looked for the face of his biological father in every black man he has ever met, all while hiding these feelings and desires. One day, the anxiety became too much, and Randall’s secret became known during a panic attack that occurred in public. Although Randall is a fictional character on This Is Us, his story is all too real. The show and Randall, in particular, have gained a big following because so much of what they portray rings true to people’s experiences. The story and the characters illustrate how shame and the isolation people with mental illness often feel as well as the difficulty of recovery. At the same time, the show also highlights the beauty of life in the midst of its challenges and hardships, even mental illness.
“I’m on a constant path of self-discovery and change.
I’m trying to become a better person, a nicer person.
I love therapy—it’s brilliant.”
—Actress Julia Sawalha
No one is exempt from life’s difficulties and setbacks, and yet, there is more to life than these. Connection. Happiness. Fulfillment. These are just as real as the hardships. More and more, people are prioritizing their mental health. They are overcoming life’s challenges and maximizing life’s beauty. They are often working with a counselor or a therapist to do just that. No one has to work on their mental health alone.
The professionals at Thriveworks Denver have walked step-by-step with many people as they face both life’s highs and life’s lows. We have navigated the difficulty of relational tension, emotional upheaval, and mental illness. We have also seen clients find the treatment and coping skills they need—we have seen them thrive.
Mental Health Care: Support for Life’s Challenges
There is a reason so many people describe life as a rollercoaster—because it’s true. The cliché lines up with real life. Life is full of highs and lows, good and bad. There are no fast passes for a smooth ride in real life—everyone has to navigate the challenges and joys, but no one has to do it alone. Consider the following scenarios:
- I know this habit is not good for you. You want to stop—you have tried to stop. When you started, it was only an occasional stress-reliever, but since then, it is more like a daily stress-reliever. Every time you gain ground in curbing the habit, you lose it within a few weeks, and you are wondering, what in the world could you do next?
- You and your better half have been dating for a few years now. You are absolutely in love and want to spend the rest of your lives together, and recently, you have both been talking about marriage. You are excited, but marriage feels like a big step. Who could you talk to about whether it’s the right next step?
- Life changed in a moment. A dear friend was taken in an accident, and life will never be the same. Most days, just breathing is difficult. Accomplishing the smallest tasks feels overwhelming. How can life ever feel normal again?
- As a young professional, you are doing well in your job. It seems to be a great fit, at least it’s a good fit for now. But you are starting to wonder what might be next. Will this job be a good fit in two years? Or four? Or six? If you were to make a career change, what would be next?
Can you resonate with any of these scenarios? Or something else similar? Imagine the difference a caring mental health professional could make. Imagine having guidance and support. Imagine having a safe space to feel, think, process, question, and plan. Many people have found that safe space in therapy.
