Paulina Zapata, PMHNP

Hello, I am Paulina Zapata, a board certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner. I earned my Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Grand Canyon University and my Doctorate of Nursing Practice from the University of Arizona. I have worked in various behavioral health settings including outpatient community mental health, an inpatient adolescent hospital, and an inpatient drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility. Throughout my nursing career, I have also worked in long-term care and home health. My diverse nursing experience has taught me to be empathetic and mindful to each person’s human experience and to be open-minded about their individualized recovery process.

My approach to care is listening with an open heart and open mind, being aware that life happens, and progress is nonlinear. I practice collaborative care, encouraging my patients to practice autonomy in their treatment and be vocal about what they feel is most important to them. While my primary focus is to find pharmacological (medication) interventions to help you, I can also offer many other useful tools to help you achieve mental and physical wellness. I do this by taking the time to listen to you and understand underlying causes to your stressors and utilizing my diverse nursing experience to make a proper assessment.

I work with ages 6 and up and I treat a variety of mental health concerns including:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • ADHD
  • Insomnia
  • PTSD
  • Mood disorders
  • Substance use disorders
  • Personality disorders
  • Psychosis
  • Impulse/Conduct disorders

I look forward to meeting you and helping you on your journey to overall well-being. Be assured that you will be heard without judgment and will always be welcomed by me with a warm heart and open mind throughout your treatment.

Gaye Adams, LPC

Hi, I’m Gaye Adams and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and a registered Art Therapist. I had finished my art degree when I discovered "art therapy," the marriage of my two greatest interests: psychology and art. My early work was with children, teens and their families, which inspired and informed my current trauma skills. A lot of my work was with military families, two local Nations, and, more recently, with adults in private practice. I was adjunct professor for University of Arizona's graduate Art Therapy Program, supervising students in a work setting.

I believe we have within us the seeds of our own healing, but sometimes we get off course. My experience has been that growth is not a straight line but occurs when we prepare the ground. My skills are intended to facilitate your process, whatever that may be. In my office, you will be heard.

Jesus Magana, LMSW

** Now offering Online TeleHealth services

Hello, I am Jesus Magana.  I am a Licensed Master Social Worker with over 5 years of experience working with youth and adults who have suffered trauma. I’ve worked in various settings, including community mental health, residential facilities and psychiatric units. Through this experience, I have been exposed to and trained in an array of therapeutic techniques, but the core of my approach is client centered and client driven.  Creating an empathic and safe space for clients to begin healing is my top priority as a licensed clinician.

I have come to believe that all of us are shaped and molded by everyday experiences that begin even before birth.  Because of this and regardless of our backgrounds or upbringing, we experience some sort of trauma. Some are capital “T” traumas and others are small “t” traumas, but all impact our ability to live happy, thriving lives. Instead, we struggle in our lives, questioning why we can’t make sense of it all. And no wonder, considering science has now proven that trauma also physiologically changes the makeup of our brains. This understanding helps me in working with all my clients, many of whom suffer with PTSD, Acute Stress, Major Depression, Anxiety and Personality Disorders.

The modalities I most draw from include:

  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
  • Mindfulness Based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (MBCBT)
  • Sand Tray Therapy
  • Motivational Interview (MI)

If you are reading this and feel inspired to begin the journey to healing, please reach out. I am here and ready to join the team effort to create a happy and thriving life.

Hello, I’m Kay Henderson. I honor and respect the search that you are on, as you look for someone who can help you navigate the changes you want to make. It’s hard to reach out for help and trust that you will be truly received. As an experienced therapist, my first goal is to create a warm, supportive environment where we can look honestly at patterns and behaviors that hold you back and create the best path for you to move through and beyond them.

We begin by exploring honestly where you are in the trajectory of change and the motivation you have to meet your goals. I draw from a unique blend of modalities that meets you where you are, drawing on solution focused mindfulness, empathetic support, creative modalities and powerful questions that challenge you when stuck. I put these together to create an approach and treatment that is unique to your needs.

Snaha Patel, LPC

Hello, I’m Snaha (Snay-ha) Patel,  LPC and I’m thrilled to be able to offer my services to you through Thriveworks!  I received a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology and Master’s in Counseling from Ottawa University. I believe in a client centered approach that is direct, honest and transparent. 

I’ve worked in a variety of settings with numerous populations that include:

  • Adolescents
  • Adults

Within my own life and work experiences, I’ve come to realize that, while all of us relate to a certain group (race, culture, etc), we also have our own unique beliefs and way of doing things. While I believe this highlights our true diversity, it can also make getting along with others and sometimes even ourselves difficult. Differences can divide, with the result leaving us lonely and in need.  When our needs are not met, we may seek solace in unhealthy coping skills, such as addiction, substance use, materialism, etc.  I focus on helping you understand the root issue of your current struggle. Together we can untangle and expose unhealthy beliefs, leaving you free to explore what your true beliefs are. 

To accomplish this, I use these modalities:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy 
  • Motivational Interviewing 
  • Expressive Arts
  • 12 Step Philosophy 
  • Family system theories 
  • Brief Solution Focused Therapy 
  • Mindfulness
  • Positive Psychology  

I have experience working with:

  • Relationship issues: Parenting
  • Substance Abuse/Addiction 
  • Grief/Loss
  • Trauma & PTSD
  • Depression 
  • Anxiety/Stress
  • Codependency 
  • Anger Management 
  • Self Esteem & Adjustment issues 
  • Cultural issues & Identity 
  • Sexual Abuse 
  • Suicidal ideation

I believe that you are capable of making the changes that you desire and that you can decide what solutions work best for you. After all, you are the one that knows yourself the best. I look forward to working with you in a safe and nonjudgmental, therapeutic environment.

“The only constant in life is change”

How true this is, though it’s missing a vital component. It’s how we deal with change that matters. That’s the true work and what I’m most interested in helping you navigate.

In the 30 years I’ve been practicing, either as a counselor or a Coach, I have witnessed over and over the aftermath of life changes that were not reconciled. These transitions, usually, unexpected, have left a person, couple or family, stuck in the trauma and unable to move forward with life. Spinning in a world of the unknown, choices are made that just keep leading them down a path to more pain, doubt and fear.

As a Transition Coach, my gift is to offer insight into the deeper meaning of the transition, structure ways to move forward without repeating the past and eventually thrive in life on the other side.

My Transition Coach specialties are:

  • Couples facing relationship transitions/challenges/divorce
  • Moving through a life changing loss
  • Facing a crossroads about the future that overwhelms
  • Family systems navigating challenging dynamics.

Good rapport with students

★★★★★
Blanca worked in our school as a school counselor and working with students in K-8th grade in a 1:1 setting. She worked with students who came from diverse backgrounds: divorced parents, incarcerated parents, no parents, homelessness, etc. The students she met with maintained a noticeably strengthened sense of self. Blanca also helped these students to develop strong coping skills in order to help the students self regulate throughout the school day. We would be happy to have her work in our school again.

Make an appointment…you’ll be so glad you did.

★★★★★
From the moment I walked in the door, I could tell this is a healing space. The environment is warm, welcoming, and uplifting. All around are beautiful, lighthearted images and positive messages. The staff is so professional and caring, you can't go wrong with any of the counselors if you're ready to make a change in your life. Thriveworks serves all--people of all ages, ethnicities, faiths, backgrounds, and lifestyles. Many of the clinicians take insurance and those who do not have a very reasonable fee for out of pocket costs. The changes and improvements you'll make in your life with the help of a Thriveworks clinician are worth every penny. The fact is you are really INVESTING in YOU--every aspect of your life can improve and that is PRICELESS. I can't say enough great things about Thriveworks, just being in that lovely atmosphere and knowing you're taking a stand for your growth and wellbeing is worth celebrating. And you can even have a nice cup of coffee or tea and a snack while you wait! Make an appointment...you'll be so glad you did.

Kay is a well-respected therapist who genuinely and compassionately connects with her clients. She really sees people for who they are and what they can become. She is warm and easy-going and insightful. She is able to pinpoint the challenge and competently encourages self-reflection, insight and change.

★★★★★
I'm composing this professional review for Kay Henderson. I've had the privilege of knowing Kay for a little over 3 years, and have worked with her in a professional capacity at our former place of employment in Maine, as Regional Clinical Director's for approximately 2 years. During the time period that I was Kay's colleague, I had the pleasure of witnessing Kay showcase her innate clinical counseling skills, as well as her management and leadership skills. She had a keen ability to analyze various business or programmatic issues, while developing and implementing solutions with a client-centered and employee-centered approach that also benefited the business. Additionally Kay's clinical mental health counseling adroitness was clearly portrayed through her prowess to quickly establish a therapeutic alliance, in a truly Rogerian person-centered manner, with clients of all ages, ranging from children to adults. She also was able to engage with families and successfully implement family systems approaches, which not only enhance family unity and cohesiveness, but also assist families and clients utilize skills independently outside the therapeutic environment. Lastly, Kay was experienced in developing treatment plans that captured the client's/family's input, and was able to work on monitoring, tracking and working with clients and families alike to achieve collective treatment objectives and goals. I would highly recommend Kay for any clinical or administrative role in the mental health industry and consider her an assist to any organization that she choses to join.

Highly Recommend

★★★★★
I've been working with Alanna Boyd with Thrive works and have only GREAT things to say about my experience. I reached out to Alanna and her response was very fast, she emailed me back regarding my needs and concerns and set up a time for a telephone intake and I've been seeing her weekly since. She's very accommodating, empathetic, personable and has given me the tools I need to make it though my trying times and everyday life. I highly recommend her. I look forward to my appointments, which is not something that I thought I'd ever say.

More than I hoped for

★★★★★
I initially went to Amy to help me manage my fear of flying, but before we could really tackle that, my relationship began to fall apart. My counseling sessions with Amy saved my sanity. I looked forward to being able to openly share my feelings and get tools to help manage my anxiety around flying and the loss of my relationship. Amy helped me get through one of the toughest times of my life. I wish we were still in the same state, so I could get "tune ups" when I get stressed out.

My counselor

★★★★★
I have worked with my counselor in the past, and  I'm so excited my counselor is now with Thriveworks helping people. My counselor has a wide range of experience in various behavioral health settings, and a wealth of knowledge from those experiences and from education. What makes this counselor special is their authenticity that makes people feel comfortable from the start. I highly recommend Thriveworks!

Team at Thriveworks

★★★★★
I have had the pleasure of knowing the team members for 12 years and working with them for 9 of those years. They bring a strong spiritual side to counseling and has helped me enhance my spirit personally, professionally, and to utilize mindfulness practices in my own work. They are a support, resource, and someone I can refer to when client's are in need of specialized movement services as part of their counseling care. I highly recommend the team and appreciate their work, support, and care.

Amy C. Davis

★★★★★
As a licensed therapist, I worked with Amy C. Davis, LPC while she was living in Denver, Colorado. She is professional and compassionate and clients who I referred to her, were grateful to have her walk with them on their journey towards healing. If you are looking for a therapist who can connect with you, truly listen and hold space for your stress, ask for Amy.

Amy is amazing

★★★★★
Amy supervised me when I was working toward licensure. She was always warm and inviting, and had amazing perspective on my clients. I attribute my current success to the supervision that I received when I was with Amy. I know her clients appreciated her nurturing and structured approach.
Thriveworks Counseling Tucson

Consistent, professional, understanding

★★★★★
I have been a patient of Thriveworks for the last few years. The counselors are not only very professional but very empathetic. They seems to always be in touch with my needs and thinks outside the normal "medical" box to help me resolve my concerns. They follows up to ensure that there aren't any additional needs and is a consistent advocate for my needs. They have helped me also to become a better parent by helping me understand my child more as well. This is an added bonus to an already great patient/doctor relationship. Thank you Thriveworks!

Highly Recommend Amy Davis

★★★★★
I’m not familiar with all of the counselors at Thrive, but I can highly recommend Amy Davis. She was my supervisor back in the day when I was an intern, and I learned so much from her. I loved working with her not only because of her knowledge and skill, but also because of her down to earth, open, and non-judgemental nature. I do not hesitate to refer to her!

Honor to work with

★★★★★
I have had the honor of working with a team member of Thriveworks. The sincerity, honesty, compassion, and respect I observed continuously for clients, no matter their circumstances, always impressed me with the reality that I was fortunate to be able to directly witness what the delivery of Mental Health services should, and must, always look like. The counseling team member beholds utmost integrity and a gifted professional who I have always known to display the finest qualities expected and required of Mental Health professionals dedicated to assisting people in need to learn to recognize and achieve their most potent sense of self-worth.

Linda is Awesome!

★★★★★
My life was at a crossroads when I met Linda. She listened patiently and offered sound counsel that truly helped me understand how to recognize the things I need... and also how to spot the red flags that could steer me off course (equally as important, I think). My life is now full of joy, contentment, and love. Linda was instrumental in getting me there.
Thriveworks Counseling Tucson

Wise and Timely

★★★★★
Linda's many years of counseling experience, her wisdom, knowledge of applicable therapies, her approaches and intuition serve her clients so very well. Whether you are looking for short-term guidance, long-term support, or healing from a deep-seated causal issue, Linda's empathic processes work to bring emotional healing, better coping skills and provide effective next steps. I gained a new lease on emotional and psychological well-being, received amazing breakthroughs that restored my hope and health, garnered a greater understanding of myself, as well as new communication tools that I could immediately implement.

Support for when and how you most need it.

★★★★★
During an initial conversation with Linda I felt that time stood still. She instantly brought me to a level of comfort to truly open up. I trusted her instantly and knew she had the knowledge, willingness, and experience to guide me thru therapy when I felt others could not. Linda truly honors and helps me see the highest and best good for myself, my marriage and our family. Eternally grateful!
