Desert Lotus Counseling’s mission is to empower growth and healing by providing inclusive, innovative and accessible therapy and wellness services. We aim to always provide the highest quality mental health care, to fight against stigma and oppression, and to honor the unique experiences, needs, culture, and identity of each individual.
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 previously tried therapy and self care but didn’t get much relief?
Desert Lotus Counseling offers effective treatment to get the relief from anxiety that you deserve.
Counseling for Trauma
Most people will experience trauma in their lifetime whether it’s a car accident, the sudden death of a loved one, a violent criminal act, exposure to the violence of war, a natural disaster, or the childhood trauma of abuse or neglect.
Many times people will fully recover after a traumatic experience, but sometimes trauma leaves lasting effects that can negatively affect a person’s mental and physical health long after the traumatic situation has resolved. Experiencing trauma increases a person’s risk for developing other mental health conditions such as depression and anxiety and may lead to physical health problems.
Therapy for Depression
I want you to know that you are not alone and there are people who can help. Many people find relief in realizing that their struggle does not own them and that there are many options available to once again have hope for their lives.
We understand the social stigma that can come with the label of living with depression. Our therapists aim to help clients sort out their environmental, biological and circumstantial factors while offering support and care through the difficult experience of depression.
LGBTQIA+ Affirming Therapy
Desert Lotus Counseling is an LGBTQIA+ affirming practice. Our therapists are committed to helping clients of all genders, sexual identities and expressions feel not only safe but truly respected and understood.
Stigma, in any form, is an impediment to the well-being of those who experience it. Given the stressors that LGBT groups must confront, finding a therapist who is LGBTQIA+ friendly or who specializes in LGBTQIA+ issues is crucial to your personal growth.
Counseling for Young Adults and College Students
Young adulthood is an exciting time of growth and change. It can also be a time of stress and uncertainty as you navigate new directions in your life. During this time, we often feel challenged by new phases in our work, school, and relationships. You are moving toward independence and forming your identity while dealing with questions about your future. You may be struggling with your sense of meaning and purpose, or afraid to disappoint your family. Old coping skills aren’t as effective anymore, or you may be concerned about your ability to cope in healthy ways. Having a safe space to work through these issues is so important!
*Please note: In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, all therapy services are currently being offered via telehealth only.
Telehealth allows us to provide counseling and therapy to our clients via live video conferencing. This can be done anywhere you have a computer or smartphone and a strong internet connection. And, studies have shown that telehealth is just as effective as in-person therapy for treating behavioral health conditions!
