I also welcome patients who are working on health changes including weight loss, but I am not a weight-loss program.
Hello! This is Mark Hayman-Martinez, RN LMFT. I am both a Registered Nurse and a Psychotherapist who has been in the helping professions since 1992. I consider myself warm and personable. Because of my training and experience, I prioritize safety and stability before pushing for change. For most acute anxieties and depression issues, I usually work in a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy mode at first. Are you using your self-talk to coach yourself or to beat yourself down? It has appeared to me that many people benefit from some focused and goal-oriented work, with more short term follow ups as circumstance call for.

In addition, the client is able to experience the feelings of gratification/the sense of accomplishment/the feelings of happiness, peace, contentment, or any other emotions that they believe will accompany the accomplishment of this goal.

We all at some point in our life face crises or transitions that can become an opportunity for growth. Do you want to know more about yourself? Do you finally want to make a change? I help clients break through patterns of anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, body image issues, and more. I offer a rich menu of therapeutic techniques that make a tangible difference. Instead of experiencing an exaggerated reactivity to life's inevitable difficulties, a balanced sense of calm and peace will prevail. With couples, I teach nuanced communication skills towards the goal of a deep, fun-loving, and interdependent relationship.

Hypnosis puts you in touch with your inner resources, allowing you to bring more of what you want into your life. Hypnosis is safe and gentle. It is the fastest and most effective way to make positive changes in your life; either physical, emotional or spiritual. Hypnosis has been scientifically proven to enhance your immune system, reduce tension and stress, lower your blood pressure, improve your entire circulatory system, improve focus and concentration, elevate your feelings of self-esteem, and release you from addictive behaviors. I have been practicing hypnosis and guided imagery in Eugene, OR for 30 years.

Who you are: Between the ages of 25 and 45. Life is "good" ~ not great. You have a sense that things should be a certain way, but they aren't. There is a gap. The gap may be clear ~ it may not. What is clear is that what has worked up until this point won't get you to where you want to be. You are ready for a change.

Underneath depression, anxiety, marital conflict, eating disorders, substance abuse, and other troubles there lies a single, painful, relentless problem: self judgement. Feelings are transient, and there are not good ones or bad ones, but we are not all raised to understand that. Encouraged by our culture to appear strong and happy, we feel pressured to hide our true feelings from each other. But when we take the time and care to pay attention to our authentic experience, it is possible to grow an enormous love for ourselves and great tenderness towards others, and even deep inner peace and great humor.

At Firebird Healing we specialize in treating trauma. We know that experiencing trauma can impact every aspect of your life. Unresolved and unhealed trauma can profoundly impact your mental and emotional well-being, body, work, relationships, creativity, and success. Experiences of trauma profoundly shape how you see yourself and the world, and are often at the root of life struggles and difficulties. Trauma is often what underlies conditions such as depression, anxiety, addiction, conflicts, difficulties, or a lack of joy and satisfaction with living. The experts at Firebird Healing have found that addressing trauma and engaging the support, healing, and tools to triumph over trauma is one of the most profound, expansive, and life-altering choices you can make.
