"It takes enormous trust and courage to allow yourself to remember.”

Counseling in Denver for Adults
Getting started with individual counseling can be intimidating, but if you're with the right therapist...that should fade away quickly!
As a young woman who felt very intimidated (actually, terrified) to make that first call to find a therapist in her early twenties - I get where your headspace may be right now. Coming face to face with the parts of yourself that have been ignored or feel too stuck to change is no small task.
We are here to tell you what is infrequently discussed, though...that on the other side of this fear is the lighter, more joyful and fulfilled version of yourself that was hidden out of sight. Our team is confident in our ability to help you reconnect to the version of yourself you have lost sight of and we cannot wait to meet you, no matter what emotional state you may be at
Connected Brain Counseling's Approach to Individual Therapy
We believe in an empathetic approach to counseling with gentle encouragement, structure and a genuine connection between the client and therapist. Our goal is to understand and validate your experience while giving you a safe space to explore new ideas and feelings that may be confusing, or messy, at times.
Whether you are looking for support in leaving a toxic relationship, strategies to manage anxiety, understanding your attachment style or a non judgmental ear to simply listen, we would be honored to be a part of your therapeutic journey in the way that you inherently deserve.
Counseling for Women
Bosa Sebele said it best, “There is no force more powerful than a woman determined to rise." And we want to help you do just that! Let's be honest, though. Wanting to grow doesn't take away from just how hard it is to be a woman (or a human) it today's society.
Have high standards? Us too
We understand that many women hold themselves to incredibly high standards. That we are conditioned to be hyperaware of our appearance and weight. That we are expected to have a full time job and be selfless, patient mothers and generous lovers while holding it alllll together, every day.
We also understand that anxiety disorders are at an all time high. So is the divorce rate, closing it at nearly 60%. Plus did you know that 1 in 4 women will be sexually assaulted in their lifetime. And an additional 75% of women have some sort of disordered eating behavior? The list, unfortunately, could go on.
Who we work with
You're not alone in this fight, and counseling can help. We love our work with women and with high retention rates we think our ladies love us, too! With over 80% of our clients being adult women ages 20-40 in the Denver area, Connected Brain Counseling has the right female therapist for you.
