Simple steps to enhance your wellness

Pathways To Connection is a group practice that provides psycho-therapy services. Currently we provide 50 minute tele-mental health sessions to residents in Arizona. Therapy can guide us towards a reduction in psychological disturbances and an improvement in the overall quality of life and relationships.

CORE VALUES AND APPROACH

A better way to walk through life

Our core therapeutic values and approach provide guidance for us and our clients as we work together toward peaceful resolutions to some of life’s most challenging obstacles.

Safety
We provide a safe space to explore thoughts, emotions and behaviors.

Compassion
We are all human and make human choices (this includes those choices we deem “mistakes”).

Self Awareness & Discovery
In our safe space, we provide honest feedback and tools to enhance self growth.

Balance
Our environments, emotions, thoughts, behaviors and physiology all interact to influence our patterns of thoughts and behaviors.

Unconditional Regard
We believe the therapeutic relationship is where healing happens. We approach these relationships with acceptance and love.

Enhance your wellness starting today

Regardless of our position and circumstances, we all have experiences that are challenging, stressful and unfulfilling. Sometimes these challenges require extra support. Whether you are working through on-going mental health issues, having a tough time working through trauma, experiencing relationship dysfunction, or any other stressful situations, we’re here to help you work through it.
