Carrie Hitchler works with adult clients, both individuals and couples. She also works with families who are struggling to communicate effectively or are going through an adjustment that is causing tension in the family.
She believes that therapeutic relationship is the foundation of any success in therapy. Without feeling safe, it is difficult to let down your defenses.
Her goal is to provide an open environment where you can be yourself. It is only when you are truly yourself that you can begin to gain insight and heal and grow as a person.
Hitchler has a preference for an Emotionally Focused Therapy approach, which focuses on developing open and honest communication from couples, individuals, or families that are struggling in relationships. She specializes in the 12 Step Recovery Model, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and EMDR.
She graduated from Eastern Michigan University and has five years of experience working with relationship and marital issues. She currently practices in the Pheonix area.
Julie Espinoza Malm:
Julie Malm practices individual, family, and group therapy for a wide variety of issues including depression and anxiety, trauma, impulsive behavior, self-esteem, relationships, and sex therapy.
Her practice is built on helping people learn how to better express their wants and needs to themselves and with others. She balances acceptance and support with techniques designed for specific and significant changes.
She has over 13 years of experiences as a therapist and has trained in EDMR and AASECT sponsored sex therapy, as well as Dialectical Behavior Therapy. She has also completed a one-year residency in cognitive behavioral therapies.
She believes that discontent, confusion, and difficult emotions have something to teach us and can provide a pathway to better understanding our values, self, and meaning. She always wants people to feel supported in a nonjudgmental therapy environment while also experiences results.
As changes happen in outside of her office, she offers session phone coaching at no additional fee. Her practice also uses mindfulness, acceptance and commitment therapy, emotionally focused therapy, and Gottman Couples therapy. Malm graduated from Argosy University in 2003 and currently practices in the Pheonix area.
Wendy Boorn utilizes mindfulness practices to work together with her clients who are tired of their lives not working and want to create their best lives. She believes deeply in people’s potential for transformation and envisions her role in therapy as part teacher, part guide, part encourager.
She always offers hope while walking besides her clients on their journeys, using a style that is interactive, kind, honest, and gently confrontational. While she has experience working with depression, anxiety, and bipolar disorder, her real strength is in her specialty in relationships.
Whether that is in the form of challenges with self, partner, parent, child, employer, or something else, she can work together to find solutions.
With over 30 years of experience, many of Boorn’s clients say she is more intuitive, engaged, honest, and nurturing than previous therapists they’ve seen. All of these traits allow for her clients to trust her more easily and begin their journeys of self-discovery.
She is also therapist for many others in the field, with approximately 1/3 of her clients being other mental health practitioners. She graduated from Arizona State University in 1980 and currently practices in the Pheonix area.
