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.

John Moran, LCSW

Good Day, I am John Moran, a LCSW (Licensed Clinical Social Worker). I have worked in this field for close to 40 years, in a variety of mental health settings.   I received my Master’s  Degree in Social Work from Wayne State University in Detroit MI, and my Bachelors in Social Work from Eastern Michigan University.  I use several approaches/modalities to assist clients in their journey’s.  Most recently I’ve been focused on working with veterans primarily with PTSD.

Through my long career, I’ve developed  an eclectic approach in the services I provide, as “one size does not fit all”.  William Shakespeare once wrote; “Of things great and small, pain we obey”.  We all have faced and dealt with emotional pain.  It takes courage and integrity to face our “pain” and develop new approaches to coping with life changes.

Dawn Copps, LAC

Hi there, my name is Dawn Copps, and I am a Licenced Associate Counselor.  I obtained my BA in Visual Arts at Prescott College and later graduated from Northern Arizona University with an MA in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I have worked in a variety of agencies in Tucson, working with people across the life-span, from 6 to 84 years old. I believe the role of a therapist to be a sacred one in that there is collaborative creation of a space and time--infused with unconditional positive regard-- specifically and solely for you, the client. My positive intentions are zero-ed in on helping to heal from the hard in life: traumas, grief, broken hearts...the hurts or fears that linger on. My experience as an artist also makes me especially attuned to how the nuances and constructs we live in may not suit us.

I am particularly drawn to Somatic Experiencing work and have been practicing it for the last four years. The focus of SE is on helping the body release stored trauma. Internal family systems works to pull together all the fragmented parts inside us and I love using this to help clients feel more integrated and whole. Add on to that an interest in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, mindfulness, ritual, attachment work, multicultural consciousness, trauma-informed practice, and art-based practice, in a nest of person-centered attunement, suffused with humor, and you've got, well, .. me as a therapist!

Part of creating capacity and healing from trauma and any other issue you wish to work on is expanding capacity for “the other,” for allowing a loving, compassionate person in your space to support you and regulate with you.  You don’t have to be alone in this.

Ages:

  • Adults 18+

Modalities:

  • Somatic Experience work
  • Acceptance and Commitment
  • Internal Family Systems

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.

Nicole Linn, LAC

Hello, I am Nicole (Nikki) Linn and I am an LAC (Licensed Associate Counselor). I graduated from Grand Canyon University in 2019 with a Masters in Professional Counseling. Prior to beginning my counseling career, I earned a Masters in Early Childhood Education/Special Needs from Northern Arizona University in 2006. I have been working with children and families in various capacities for over 15 years. During my time with the public school system and community mental health, I have worked with children experiencing behavioral and cognitive needs, mental health needs such as anxiety and depression, symptoms due to traumatic experiences, and neurodiversity such as giftedness/2e, ADHD, and autism.

I have a client based focus in my work with clients and I specialize in working with young children and their families. I use a relationship- and play-based approach to provide an environment where children can develop a stronger sense of themselves, build necessary skills for healthy relationships, and improve connection to the important adults in their lives. Through the language of play, children can process their experiences, become more responsible for behaviors, and develop more successful strategies for life.

While I focus mainly on children, I am skilled at creating an environment of healing for those in need. I’d be honored to assist on your healing journey.

Greetings, I’m Nohemi Maciel, an LCSW with years of experience working with varied populations. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Women’s and Gender Studies from Wellesley College and a Master of Social Work and Certificate in the Latinx Leadership Initiative from Boston College . Much of my recent experience has been working with children, though I have experience with and thoroughly enjoy facilitating the healing process with all ages.

I provide a client centered approach that is culturally humble, trauma informed, and compassionate. I am also bilingual and provide therapy in both English and Spanish.

Our lives are complex and sometimes our challenges and experiences can feel overwhelming. You do not have to go through this alone. I would be honored to accompany you on your journey towards healing.
