Julie Benton

Vibrance Relationship Therapy

 

Do you find yourself getting stuck having the same fights with your partner over and over? Do you struggle with thoughts of self doubt, thinking there’s something wrong with you or that you’re not good enough? These feelings can be discouraging and isolating, but you are not alone. I can help you face these challenges in a way that not only makes them more bearable to live with, but reaches the heart of the matter and resolves them at the root. You are capable of achieving what we all want and need- to love and be loved, to experience joy and connection, and to live a life filled with purpose and meaning.


As a trauma informed, systemic clinician, I use highly effective, evidence based methods including Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). Healing is a holistic process that requires consideration for the whole person and their environment, so I take an integrated approach to custom tailor treatment to your unique needs. My specializations include:

  • Relationship Issues (Marriage/Couples Counseling, Communication Problems, Sexual Issues, Infidelity and Betrayal Recovery, Parenting, Family Conflict) 

  • Trauma/PTSD Recovery

  • Identity Exploration (Faith Crisis & Transitions, Life Purpose & Spirituality, Self-esteem, Relationship Orientations-monogamy, polyamory, sexuality, etc.) 

  • Anxiety 

  • Depression 

You have the power to create meaningful change in your life, but having support from someone you feel comfortable with can make all the difference. I respect the courage it takes to invite someone else on such a personal journey, and I'm committed to creating a safe, supportive, non-judgmental space for you to explore yourself and grow in your relationships. As an advocate for inclusivity, I am sex positive, kink positive, LGBTQ and poly affirming.

Deborah M. Johansen, MS, LPC, NCC

Foundation for Healing, LLC
AZ Licensed Clinical Supervisor

 

As a Licensed Professional Counselor and Licensed Clinical Supervisor in AZ, I have gained over 35 years of “intrinsic value” helping adults, couples, and groups, manage stress, trauma, grief, mood, thoughts, various addiction cycles, suicidality, self-harm, reentry, and life transitions.

I provide an individualized “trauma-informed” approach by meeting you where you’re at, validating your experience, empowering you to break through the barriers that may be holding you back, and walking alongside as you gain valuable tools for success.  I will show you “truth” (even when it’s hard to see) and challenge your “perspective” to facilitate a strong foundation for healing.

 

I also serve as a Person-Centered Clinical Supervisor for persons seeking to become independently licensed therapists in the state of Arizona through individual and group supervision models. Having done my own personal work, which I believe is imperative for all behavioral health professionals, I strive for balance and wholeness for my supervisees. 

 

Rather than listing off my extensive and varied work experience, I invite you to contact me through text or voice at: (480) 608-5250, email: deborahj@foundationforhealing.com, or view my website by foundationforhealing.com

 

I provide telehealth (video/audio) services throughout Arizona M-TH, & Sa. From 8am-9:30pm, In-Office sessions on Fridays 8am-9:30pm each week, and Equine Assisted Psychotherapy and Learning sessions on a Case-by-Case basis.

 

(I am In-Network with most AZ Optum/United Healthcare (Regular, EAP, and AHCCCS) Health Plans, can provide a Superbill for Out-of-Network services, and I accept FSA, HSA, Credit/Debit cards, and cash as payment.  I will be an approval Out-of-Network Provider with Tricare/TriWest soon. I offer a 15 minute free consultation call/video for all perspective clients so that we can both determine if it is a good match.)

 

Tyler Kees

Kees Counseling Services, PLLC

My name is Tyler Kees and I am excited to begin this journey with you. I graduated from Arizona State University with a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology in 2015. From that point, I began my graduate journey at Capella University, focusing on clinical psychology.  I graduated with my Master's in Clinical Psychology in 2019. I received my license in counseling in July of 2020. 

 

I began working in the behavioral health field in 2015. I started as a Behavioral Health Specialist working with the under served population in Apache Junction. Since then, I have worked at most levels of the behavioral health industry, from technician to clinical program manager in the Substance Use field. 


I have been trained in many different areas of therapy and counseling. I do not believe in the "one size fits all" model. I believe each person has their own response to each theoretical orientation of therapy. I have been trained in cognitive behavioral therapy, psychodynamic, client-centered, and many others. I will utilize what I believe will be the best for you. 


I have an incredibly unique ability to develop a therapeutic relationship very quickly. I believe this is the most important part of it all. If there is not a positive relationship, the therapeutic experience will lack significantly. I try to find the core of the issue with you. I do not do well with worksheets or YouTube mindfulness videos; you can do all of those things from home. I believe that if you feel you need help from a licensed professional, there should be more than the entities mentioned. 


I have significant experience with all behavioral health challenges and am excited to learn, grow, and help each one of you.

Every individual has different wants and needs when they decide to seek therapy services. I work to honor your unique needs by collaborating with you to come up with a plan that's just right for you. Whether you are looking for brief solutions to alleviate symptoms, catalyze behavior change, or seeking deep insights and healing to become more authentically you, my hope is that you find safe compassionate care with me that moves you towards your deeply held values and aspirations.

Throughout my career I have worked for positive change across settings including community behavioral health care, trauma healing, education, primary and pediatric health care.

As a social worker I am grounded in systems theory, understanding that individuals are influenced by intersecting identities and experiences that inform who they are and how they experience the world. I continuously work to ensure that my therapeutic space is safe, accessible, and accepting of all identities and intersections and that those values are also in action in my daily life. 

I have extensive training in Play Therapy and like to bring a joyful and experiential spirit to all my work, regardless of age. I am trained in and regularly incorporate; mindfulness, Sand Tray, Motivational Interviewing, Solution Focused Brief Therapy, Heart Centered Hypnotherapy, EMDR, Trauma Focused CBT, and attachment based therapies depending on client need, preference, and plan.
