Existential psychotherapy takes one to deep personal exploration of self and others, etc.
I assist people who are experiencing personal and relationship problems, those who are chronic worriers, withdraw and avoid too much or are excessively sad and depressed. I also counsel those whose lives are shattered by severe trauma, loss, marital conflict, divorce, aging, and delusional thinking/psychosis. I apply theory, methods, and approaches that work best with the unique needs and personality of the person, couple, or family I'm counseling.

POSTPARTUM DEPRESSION * GIFTED CHILDREN & ADULTS * EATING DISORDERS * GRIEF & LOSS * RELATIONSHIP CONFLICT * NARCISSISM IN FAMILY SYSTEM * FERTILITY CONCERNS * TRANSITION & ADJUSTMENT * Heidi Sommer McAlister believes in finding, developing, and utilizing the unique, inherent, and valuable qualities in each of us. The Sommer Group's philosophical stance is that we hold within ourselves the capacity for change and growth. Sometimes events occur in our lives that leave such a significant impact on us that we become confused and unsure about ourselves, our relationships, and the direction we want our lives to go in. Professional help can be critical during this time.

My practice of therapy is also influenced by humanistic, existential , feminist, and psychodynamic approaches.
From time to time we all get trapped in patterns and ways of thinking and feeling that don't feel good to us. Therapy provides a safe, warm, and nonjudgmental connection that allows you to better understand yourself: your feelings, thought patterns, and relationships with others. While the primary goal of therapy is to find relief from your immediate distress, the self-knowledge you will gain in therapy will help you cope with problems that arise long after therapy is over. I view therapy as a unique, collaborative process in which you work toward discovering your own truths, great and small.

My evidence-based approach draws from Existential Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Solution-Focused Therapy, and I'm trained in EMDR Therapy.
Your life on paper (or social media) seems to check all the boxes. But deep inside, something is missing. Stuck, you're struggling to build the life you truly want. Maybe you've been coping with unbelievable stress at work or school, relationship issues, anxiety, or depression. Perhaps life has thrown you an unexpected detour, like a job loss or the end of a significant relationship. Things might even be going really well, but you know you have the potential for more. No matter what, you have an intuition you can't ignore; a voice inside telling you life could be more fulfilling. If any of this sounds familiar, I can help.

Healing takes courage. But I believe your spiritual core will guide you. Your despair, loss, anxiety, shame, trauma, compulsions and relationship conflicts are all welcome with me.

No matter your spiritual or religious tradition, Western, Eastern, neo-pagan or even secular humanist, together we can work toward solutions. I have helped several hundred individuals--perhaps like yourself--drawing from their values, beliefs, prayer, meditation, yoga, ritual, mindfulness, and religious fellowship. Every racial/ethnic person and culture are embraced.

I practice counseling from a humanistic perspective, valuing people's intrinsic potential to move toward growth and healing. I collaborate with clients, providing the space and opportunity to explore the nature of their relationship with self and their relationship with others. I seek balance in my work. I respect that my work with clients often needs to shift fluidly between different approaches: practical concerns such as skills-building and decision-making, internal explorations of experience, and existential concerns regarding discovering or creating meaning and purpose.

The modalities used to assist individuals in improving insight, gaining coping skills, being fully present and building empowerment and self-esteem are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectal Behavioral Therapy and Existential Therapy.
With over a decade of experience, I strive to provide a safe and secure place for individuals to address emotional and psychological problems that often result in personal suffering and struggling relationships. I place great emphasis on empathy and believe that we all encounter deep dark places that are best worked through when we have a safe and compassionate person to walk alongside us through the journey.

Using interpersonal, emotion-focused, multicultural, feminist, existential , and mindfulness approaches, I will help you explore personal and sociocultural factors that shaped your patterns and learn new ways of interpreting and responding to situations.
You may be seeking therapy because you don’t feel like your useful self and what you’ve tried on your own didn’t work. You may have weathered through difficult life situations that made you feel lost or stuck and need a space to talk to make sense out of them. Or you may be dissatisfied with where you are in life and want to figure out what is in the way and regain a sense of direction in your life. I'd be honored to join you in your journey as you find your way back to your inner wisdom and work toward healing and growth. As a therapist, you will experience me as open, honest, active, and supportive.

Whether in Arizona or Ohio, your heart is heavy. Heavy with trauma, with grief, anxiety, depression. With life stress, with life transitions, with the intense demands of work and motherhood and relationships. You feel disconnection, a lack of existential fulfillment. You have this person you want to be. These things you want to do. But you are stuck and you want to move forward in life; deeply, wholly, mindfully. You are courageous. And you've decided that you are ready to lay it out, harness your strength, and heal. www.warmmilkandhoneyhealing.com

Worried? Working hard for others' happiness; taking care of others - you come last or not at all? Swallowing the bad behavior of others, not to rock the boat? Sick of living up to the expectations of others? Anxious, sad, irritated, even angry? The negative effects of these experiences can be DISSOLVED. You can adopt a new perspective that includes profound self appreciation and become free inside and confident in new ways to handle situations. Showing you how and helping you do this, is my specialty. The approach is with softness, gentleness and respect for your unique emotional growth needs.

Thank you for viewing my profile. Loving yourself sometimes means finding the courage to make changes. Life can take us to some unexpected places and challenge our sense of well-being. Dealing with a new problem or ready to take on an older existing problem I want to be there to help you in the healing process. Balancing the demands of life can be tough, and adding therapy may seem like one more challenge; It is with this in mind I offer in office, tele-med, and home based counseling services, so receiving services is not just one more hoop to jump through.
