Individual Counseling

Our individual therapies focus on the issues you share with us and then we collaborate with you toward a goal-oriented solution. We believe this process can be brief, but are ready to spend as much time as you need to reach success. Our goal is to challenge any area of your life that is not serving you and encourage you to try new things. Understanding where you are in your current stage of change is important and we will guide you to focus on your goals so you don’t lose sight of what you want.

We have a talented team who can provide Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Trauma therapies, just to name a few. Most sessions last 50 minutes, but can be as long as 90 minutes. After you initial appointment, you are paired with a counselor who we feel has the greatest potential to help you reach your goals. And, of course, we honor you and you have the final say.

Youth Empowerment

The chief concern we hear from today’s parents is that their teenagers spend too much time in their bedrooms with social media and video games.

Second to that is a loss of interest in school.

How do we know whether our teens are in a natural evolution of life or if they are struggling with low self-esteem, depression, or anxiety?

We admit - it can be tricky.

What we do know is that our teenagers, YOUR teenager, can benefit from having a third party advocate, someone not tied to the drama going on at home or at school. An advocate trained in spotting depression, anxiety, signs of drug use and who can create a plan of action to help your teen begin a more productive life. Someone, also, who can help parents navigate the highs and lows of a generational gap. Our young adults today are preparing for a future that will last long after we are gone. It is our responsibility as the adults in their lives to reassure them they are strong, capable, people and empower them to succeed in their lives regardless of what it looks like to us “old” people.

Family Therapy

Family therapy! Most want to run screaming from the room when it comes to bringing together a whole family who hope to find peace somewhere, anywhere. Navigating many people and many personalities can be daunting, at best, and crippling, at worst. Our team is seasoned, mature, and gets today’s modern family.

  • Are your teens stationed permanently in their bedroom suites at your house?

  • Are you pulling your hair out over the latest report card?

  • Is the school calling or emailing?

  • Or worse, NOT calling or emailing?

  • Sad that dinner at the table never happens because yet again the 347 was backed up on the way home from work?

  • Do you suffer because you think somehow your choices have caused the angst in the family?

  • Does your heart want to be a Rock Star Parent?

  • Feeling heavy of heart? Yep, we get it. And we can help.

The focus of our family therapies is to teach everyone to hear each other, communicate well, and learn to live in each other’s shoes. Life sucks, sometimes, and having a solid family team to come home to each day can be what stabilizes the family for years to come - and the gift of a changed life trajectory for your next generation. Understanding everyone’s communication style and love language is a good way to start mending hearts and moving toward a fun family.

Children’s Services

What is there to do when you realize your child might need some help?

Or when the school calls - again - asking for your advice on how to handle your mini-you and you are also scratching your head wondering how to handle your mini-you.

We have not one, but two, rock star therapists who love to play and get into the behaviors of your child. We assess for depression and anxiety and have medical referrals in case of ADHD or other issues that may get in the way of school success. Once a game plan is in place, the therapists use play, art, talking, and reasoning to engage your child in behavior change.

We always work toward a unified family dynamic and will include all family members, when needed.

Watching your child grow and blossom at school is important to us.

Trauma Therapy

Let’s face it - we don’t live in a perfect world.

No perfect parents, teachers, leaders, spouses, children, the list goes on.

Sometimes, another’s imperfections can have long-lasting effects on our own thoughts, feelings, psyches. Severe anxiety and depression can be crippling signs that trauma has taken place and can leave a person trapped in a poorly productive life.

If you are suffering from past or current trauma, reach out. Our trauma therapist practices Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy (EMDR), Bio Acoustical Utilization Device (BAUD) therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and other processes to help you gain some relief from your trauma symptoms.

In addition, we contract with psychiatric nurse practitioners who can utilize medication treatments when needed.

 

Personal Coaching

LIfe doesn’t come with a manual. Instead, we pass down knowledge through generations of imperfect people.

Sometimes we find ourselves on the ‘short end of the stick’ possibly feeling like everyone knows how to adult, but me.

No worries! Most of the team at Maricopa Behavioral Health Services can offer personal coaching around any subject you find yourself stuck in.

If you find yourself confused and scratching your head wondering why you don’t understand something in your life, call and make an appointment. The phone team [read: whoever answers the phone] will chat with you and suggest who they think will be a good fit to help get you unstuck.

During your first appointment a game plan will be created around your goals and we will support you along the way.

Partner Counseling

Whether we are committed for a season or forever, partnering up to do life with someone can be a bit crazy at times.

Is it the simple things like trash, too much Facebook, or the toilet seat that has you at odds?

Or the bigger issues like money, kids, careers, and nosey extended family members?

Bigger yet - have betrayals happened that your relationship may not survive?

We wish we could tell you we have all the answers and therapies you need to create and keep a happy relationship.

You know, the one you grew up believing existed. But doesn’t. Or….maybe does?

What we can tell you, is that you are not alone and everyone can benefit from having a helper outside the relationship. Someone to talk out the differences with and gain different perspectives.

Regardless of how you define your relationship - Christian marriage, long-term lover, or just a stinky roommate - we have someone who can work with you to find solutions to what’s causing angst in your home and create the peace you are looking for.

Spiritual Counseling

Spiritual counseling is becoming more and more important in many people’s lives, particularly as research continues to support the need for a healthy mind-body-spirit connection. We love the spirit connection and will talk about any spiritual practice you already enjoy or want to learn more about.

Why would I need spiritual counseling?

  • when existing beliefs no longer make sense to me

  • to learn about the mind-body-spirit connection

  • to break free from harmful behavior practices

  • when I think my therapeutic issues might be spiritual in nature

  • to learn different spiritual modalities and how I might apply them to my life

  • to talk about and explore my own favorite practice or wanna be favorite practice

At Maricopa Behavioral Health Services, we believe everyone is on their own pathway to peace. Therefore, all team members bring open minds and open hearts to your sessions. We will meet you where you are at and help you gain an understanding of your own, unique spiritual nature.

If you carry specific hurts or wounds you would like help sorting out, Mia Holden is a trained Christian spiritual counselor who can help you reach a place of peace.
