Our Focus

At Enso Counseling, we deeply value the transformative power of Attachment Theory, integrating insights from pioneering researchers like John Bowlby, Mary Aisnworth,  Pia Mellody and Gabor Maté into our therapeutic approach. Understanding that early relationships and attachment patterns profoundly shape our emotional landscape, we employ techniques rooted in Post Induction Therapy (PIT) and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) to provide trauma-informed care. Drawing from Gabor Maté's work on authenticity and attachment, we guide clients in exploring their authentic selves within the context of their attachment history, fostering self-awareness and acceptance. Through PIT, we address the impact of childhood trauma on emotional regulation and relationship dynamics, creating a safe space for healing and growth. EMDR techniques further facilitate the processing and resolution of past traumas, allowing clients to reclaim their inner strength and resilience. 

Our practice is committed to supporting individuals in cultivating secure internal resources, fostering meaningful connections, and living authentically in alignment with their true selves.

In addition to these approaches, we integrate evidence-based modalities such as Aaron Beck's Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Susan Johnson's Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT). CBT helps clients identify and challenge unhelpful thought patterns, empowering them to develop more adaptive coping strategies and behaviors. EFT, on the other hand, focuses on fostering secure emotional bonds within relationships, promoting communication, trust, and intimacy.

Central to our therapeutic philosophy is mindfulness-based therapy, which encourages present-moment awareness and non-judgmental acceptance of thoughts and feelings. By incorporating mindfulness practices into our work, we help clients cultivate greater self-compassion, resilience, and inner peace, ultimately facilitating deeper personal growth and transformation.

Individual Therapy

Are you having a difficult time handling the struggles in your life? Could you use an expert opinion on what you’re going through, or a non-judgmental ear just to listen? Do you think you could benefit the most from individualized attention? Are you hesitant to talk to others about your problems? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then individual therapy could be the solution you’ve been seeking. Individual therapy differs from Group or Alternative therapy methods in the way that you are the sole focus of a single therapist who helps you develop and achieve your goals for therapy.

Couples Counseling

Do you feel like your relationship is at a standstill? Are you and your partner stuck in the same argument loop every night? Do you feel like you and your partner are drifting away? Do you desire more intimacy between you and your partner? All things can be improved, changed, and bettered with just a little support, no matter how big or small. With couples therapy, you’ll learn how to communicate your feelings and needs, and get what you want out of your relationship.

Family Counseling

Family relationships are the cornerstone of our human experience. If your family is not a source of joy and support to you as you venture into the world, perhaps some family counseling in Phoenix can help. Today’s individuals and families face a growing number of challenges: troubled relationships, struggles with communication, blended families, grief, parenting, and addiction.  

Counseling for Trauma

Most people will experience trauma in their lifetime whether it’s a car accident, abuse or neglect, the sudden death of a loved one, a violent criminal act, exposure to the violence of war, or a natural disaster. While many people can recover from trauma over time with the love and support of family and friends and bounce back with resiliency, others may discover effects of lasting trauma, which can cause a person to live with deep emotional pain, fear, confusion, or posttraumatic stress far after the event has passed. In these circumstances, the support, guidance, and assistance of a therapist is fundamental to healing from trauma.

Counseling for Anxiety

Is anxiety taking over your life? Does it feel like you can’t control it no matter how hard you try? Have you already tried therapy but found it ineffective? If this sounds like you, I’m confident I can help. My practice offers the most effective forms of treatment, to get the relief from anxiety that you deserve. When it comes to treating anxiety disorders, research shows that therapy is usually the most effective option. That’s because anxiety therapy – as opposed to anxiety medication – treats more than just symptoms to the problem.


Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is an integrative psychotherapy approach that has been extensively researched and proven effective for the treatment of trauma. EMDR is a set of standardized protocols that incorporates elements from different treatment approaches. EMDR therapy is an integrative psychotherapy method that uses a technique called bilateral stimulation to repeatedly activate opposite sides of the brain.

Mindfulness-Based Therapy

Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy, or MBCT, is designed for people who suffer from repeated bouts of depression or chronic unhappiness. It combines the ideas of cognitive therapy with meditative practices and attitudes based on the cultivation of mindfulness. Recent research has shown that people who have been clinically depressed three or more times in their life find that learning mindfulness-based skills help considerably to reduce their chances of depression returning.

Emotion-Focused Therapy

Do you find it hard to control your emotions? Do your emotions often dictate your response? Do you wish you had the techniques to harness your emotions and move forward with your life? If you answered yes to any of the above, I encourage you to explore Emotion-Focused Therapy or EFT. EFT is an approach to therapy treatment based on the premise that our emotions are a key to our identity and a guide for decision making. When we lack awareness of our emotions or avoid unpleasant emotions, we are unable to use the information provided by these emotions.
