Live free from anxiety and wounds of the past

Anxiety Therapy Arizona

Are you ready to prioritize healing?

Life offers a smorgasbord of challenges, big and small. But sometimes the biggest obstacle is our own inner critic.

Even if you are aware of why you find it so challenging to enjoy life, the knowing doesn’t give you access to how to create the change you desire.

Do you struggle with:

Chronic anxiety, nerves, or worry?

Unhealthy and co-dependent relationships?

The lingering effects of past trauma?

Always putting other people first?

Feeling like you are not fulfilling your potential?

When it is no longer tolerable that the past undermines your experience of life in the present, a door to healing opens.

Are you ready to step through?

Therapy offers powerful tools for change.

Very few of us were taught the tools to attain peace, happiness, and fulfillment. But they do exist!

A relationship with your therapist, in which you feel safe, seen and unconditionally accepted, is a powerful space where you can explore deeply within yourself.

Using a combination of powerful ancient and modern tools and therapeutic approaches, you can create positive, proactive change in your life that alters how you work, play, and be with the people in your world.

Discover how to:

End the cycle of repetitive, dysfunctional patterns, even if they were passed down to you through generations.

Live without brain fog, overwhelm, anxiety and exhaustion.

Feel confident to live as your authentic self.

Be present, connected, and peaceful.

All of this and more is possible when you commit to your own healing journey and participate fully in the process.

“The relationship between you and your therapist can be life changing.”

Introducing Elizabeth Trautwein

Elizabeth Trautwein Therapy Portland

Elizabeth Trautwein, LPC LMHC

I am a Licensed Professional Therapist/Counselor in private practice, serving residents of Arizona, Washington and Oregon with Telehealth Therapy.

My own healing journey led me to specialize in working with anxiety and those hurt by narcissistic abuse, realizing that fulfilling, healthy relationships are possible for everyone.

As a therapist, I have a deep investment in my clients’ healing, and I am dedicated to helping them live with freedom, connection, authenticity and joy.

Breaking repetitive patterns of the past is a process, but you don’t have to do it alone.

My approach to therapy

What is distinct about my approach is that I empower you from day one to direct your own therapeutic journey. My clients come to therapy with an intention for the session and they control the journey and pace. They have a deep commitment to healing and are active in doing the work outside both in and out of therapy time.

In our sessions I call on a toolbox of theories, models and approaches for healing wounds from the past, and empowering you in the present. Clients report feeling truly cared for, and understood like never before.

The main theoretical framework I use is called "Contemplative Psychology" which is a blend of Buddhist teachings and Western psychology. I combine this with Internal Family Systems, Polyvagal Theory, Attachment Theory and Somatic Psychology. In practice I also use meditation, visualization, parts work, plus tools and techniques that integrate mind & body.

I help my clients integrate mind and body while reconnecting to, and trusting, their intuition. I also help them establish boundaries and overcome co-dependent patterns. Much of the work I do is healing inner child/attachment wounds and learning to manage uncomfortable and difficult emotions.

This process can be painful at times and asks of you to bravely challenge and re-evaluate the way in which you interpret life.

With this work you can:

Enjoy healthy, nurturing relationships.

Feel confident and complete.

Discover your authentic voice.

Feel grounded and in touch with your intuition.

Courageously choose the direction of your life.

It is my great privilege to work with clients who are ready to do the work. They experience powerful, life changing shifts and transform the way they experience this world.

Are you ready for life changing growth?

I am always excited to work with clients who are ready to make the changes they want to see in their lives.

I offer a free 15-minute video consultation, to see if we are right for each other. This consultation is a safe space where you can experience the work and decide whether to take this journey together.

I offer therapy to residents of Arizona, Washington and Oregon.
