Janine Faux, LAC
EMDR Clinician and AzTRN Member
I believe in being positive, present, and having a realistic plan for change. Behavior is influenced by core beliefs. Behaviors follow patterns that can be identified and changed. We will identify your core beliefs and challenge unhealthy thoughts and patterns. We will use a mindfulness based approach and focus on your strengths as we create a plan for change. Currently, I am working toward certification in EMDR and will be applying this therapy to my practice.
The majority of my experience has been working with young adults, adolescents, and families in intensive outpatient, educational, and therapeutic settings. My areas of specialty include eating disorders, self-esteem issues, body image work, depression, anxiety, trauma, challenges with children and adolescents, and family relationships.
I am a wife, mother, and grew up in a large family. I may understand what you are going through. You are stronger than you know and I look forward to assisting you in your journey.
