Professional statement

John Younes is a counselor working in Denver. He treats clients with depression, anxiety, trauma, addiction, and other challenges. Many of John's clients find him for treatment after they've already tried what "should" work to make their problems go away. That's why John helps them build resilience while focusing on thoughts and choices that will strengthen their lives. That way, clients can discover new hopes and move into a brighter future.

First, John is trained in existential therapy, which looks at how you may feel lonely or lost in life. Second, he's also trained in cognitive therapy, which helps how you might see or think about life. Putting these two together, John's approach makes sure you get both the mental and emotional treatment you need. And he sees clients of any race, age, gender identity, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or place of origin.

John's therapeutic style is warm, understanding, and based on empathy. When a new client starts therapy, John creates a safe space for that person to share any concerns without fear of judgment. As the work proceeds, John is committed to providing a counseling relationship that places the client's needs first and gets realistic treatment goals met. This process supports clients to take advantage of the opportunity that therapy offers and finally get the professional perspective on what otherwise never gets explored.

John obtained his MA in clinical psychology from Columbia University and he obtained his MA in counseling from Regis University. He gained experience working as a counselor in addiction treatment which gave him ample background in issues like anxiety and trauma. He is a member of the National Board for Certified Counselors. He offers both in person and online sessions. Finally, outside of private practice, John enjoys spending quality time with his young family.


Message to clients

Are you feeling sad, depressed, and lonely? Or maybe anxious and panicked? You might be looking for help with depression, PTSD, or anxiety symptoms. Luckily, if you’re ready to work with a therapist like me, you can learn how to manage your daily struggle and build a better future.

In our first session, I’ll custom-fit my approach to you personally. You can talk about any topic without fear of judgment. You’ll have 100% confidentiality.

If you’re ready for a change in your life and you think we might work well together, therapy can help.
