I am trained in using CBT, mindfulness, solution-focused, motivational interviewing, family therapy , and trauma-focused interventions.
Do you struggle with wanting to change but don't know where to start or what to do? Life throws many challenges at us and it can be hard to cope with them. You may be holding on to old wounds that have traumatized you. Your family might argue a lot and wish they could just talk to each other. You may be a parent of a neurodiverse child in need of guidance. Or maybe you see the world differently than other people and don't really fit in. Whatever it is that brought you here, you deserve to be happy and in control of your life.

Individuals and couples see me upon experiencing a variety of issues pertaining to life transitions with career or family , grief and loss, depression, anxiety, processing trauma, self esteem, sexual assault/domestic violence, spirituality, substance abuse, and insomnia. Clients come to therapy seeking a space to process difficult emotions with a trusted, empathic therapist who works to not only listen but also understand their experiences. The desire to be truly seen, heard, and accepted is a powerful but rare human phenomenon. My priority is for clients to feel secure in expressing both their sufferings and their longings.

My practice is unique. I treat two groups of clients: One is very high functioning - the highly successful professional who wants to improve personal strengths, interpersonal interactions, relationships, and intimacy. The second set are those who have been struggling with a diagnosable mental or physical illness that has not been effectively managed. Both may need various clinical treatments which include therapies such as Interpersonal Social Rhythm Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy (Couples & Family ), Cognitive-Behavior Therapy (CBT) or trauma oriented skills such as Prolonged Exposure Therapy, Hypnosis, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) - Feeling-State Addiction Therapy, Relaxation & Mindfulness.

I work collaboratively with clients to have an understanding of the events & issues in their lives. My approach to counseling includes a client-centered approach establishing a strong working-relationship. There are no "one-size-fits-all approaches" to address all problems with all individuals. As a result, I use a variety of approaches working with clients to meet their goals. I seek to understand the impact of a client's life-experiences, family history, personality, values, etc. on their development and relationships with others. I can work with individuals who have ambivalence about making changes & gain insight into problematic behaviors.

I then help the child grow through these missed stages so that they can operate normally with their family and community.
The "language of children is play." I use expressive therapies like play,drama,sand,and art to help children process their problems and find answers. When a child plays out a solution to a problem he/she has the unique ability to actually experience success in the moment. I have taken extensive training to learn how to help children play out their problems. I am one of a very few Registered Play Therapist Supervisors in the state of Arizona.

Relationship issues can affect people's lives in so many levels including physical and mental health, family , work, and finances.
After 30 years of experience doing therapy in the US and other countries, I have several tools in my toolbox. I use a variety of approaches and techniques such as hypnosis, cognitive therapy, PACT, emotionally focused therapy, mindfulness, among others. I have been very interested in how to help couples to have better relationships: how their past affect their relationship and how they can let go of their past and create the life, and relationship they want for themselves.

I specialize in working with people struggling with: family of origin issues, depression, issues related to sexuality, grief and loss, mortality, relationships, significant life changes, and health struggles.
I work with people using a variety of philosophies, but those encompassing humanistic and psychodynamic theories inform most of my thoughts related to psychotherapy. This generally means I am most interested in focusing on emotions, insight, relationships, past experiences, meta-emotion, self-worth, and authenticity. I rely heavily on discussing shame, vulnerability, emotional needs, and creating meaning in life. My work is fairly non-directive, and I will be most focused on helping you find your own authentic path by reflecting and exploring deeper meanings and patterns that arise in our discussions.

I practice together with my husband, Jeff Schultz LPC, CSAT (Certified Sex Addiction Therapist), in an integrated and holistic process of recovery for the entire family .
Are you hurt and angry about the DISCOVERY or DISCLOSURE of your partner's or spouse's SEXUAL SECRETS? Have some of the things you once trusted and relied upon in life later proven to be false or been buried beneath layers and layers of deception? Do you know the experience of wanting stability as you attempt to stand on the shifting sands of overwhelming uncertainty? Your distress is valid and what you're feeling is quite normal, and yet it's all incredibly disconcerting. Fortunately, you do have someone to talk to. I'll listen, answer your questions, and help guide you through this difficult time. I hope you'll give us a call!

Family Therapy

What do family therapists do?

A family therapist facilitates the process of understanding and improving how a family functions. The therapist will help family members develop empathy for one another. They’ll seek to understand existing patterns, misunderstandings, and conflicts that arise, in order to help the family arrive at a realistic, unified understanding and develop the coping skills they need to build stronger relationships.

How long does therapy for families take to work?

Therapy manifests differently in every family; a common time frame is 12 weekly sessions, but some families may see improvement after just a few weeks. Families should discuss their goals with the therapist at the beginning of the process and periodically revisit those goals to assess their progress together.

How can you encourage a family member to attend family therapy?

You can encourage family members to attend therapy by expressing with both love and concern the challenges you see and explaining how a therapist could help the family navigate those challenges together. An outside perspective can help everyone feel heard, get on the same page, and develop new skills. If family members are still hesitant, it may be helpful to emphasize that family therapy is short-term—it won’t last forever.

Is therapy for families effective?

Family therapy can significantly improve family dynamics and relationships. Research suggests that family therapy can help individuals understand their role in the family, communicate and solve problems together, reduce conflict and draw boundaries when necessary, and develop coping skills for stressors, major life changes, and mental or physical illnesses within the family.
