Open Hearts Open Minds Counseling Services is a private practice located in Scottsdale, Arizona, specializing in the treatment of addictions, depression and anxiety, and trauma.
Mind, body and spirit are all important components to treatment. Treatment is personalized to meet individual needs. By focusing on the individual’s core issues one can identify and address the patterns that have caused continual return to self-destructive behaviors.
Recovery is a path that I walk and I have understanding and respect for each individual's pain and despair that comes from one’s intimate experience with addictions and behaviors used to numb out from or avoid reality. The healing process begins with admitting that one has a problem and asking for HELP.
Therapy may include individual counseling, family counseling, small group sessions, spirituality counseling/education, educational sessions, and artwork processing. Nutritional consultation may be advised and it is essential that one finds a 12-step program for support and interaction with others having similar struggles. Other therapeutic approaches may include experiential work and grief sessions.
Family counseling is pivotal to the effectiveness of treatment and the recovery process. Family members and significant others in the life of the individual receiving counseling services may be invited to participate in the therapeutic process.
Participation by family members allows them the opportunity to learn about the many issues that have impacted the entire family as a system. The family can be offered a variety of tools to more successfully address issues concerning mental health, addiction, recovery and functional family systems. This is an opportunity to learn how best to be supportive of one another and to begin to heal the pain as a family.
If you or someone in your family would like to free yourself from the pain of addiction, depression or trauma and move forward to a more enriching life, you are invited to contact me for more information or to set an appointment. All calls are confidential.
