Patrick Varney-Phoenix Foundations Recovery Practice Description
My therapeutic style is easy going but to the point of taking an empathetic client-centered approach in an understanding way that fosters a genuine partnership, to promote personal growth in healing & the building of a fulfilling new lifestyle. I customize treatment individually to meet your specific needs along with the technique that works best for you. Having a safe and non-judgmental place to process past or present pain is essential in healing. I believe you are a resilient human being and have a personal strength determined to find change or you wouldn’t be reading this! I’m an eclectic therapist using a mix of utilizing the best therapeutic techniques for the client, couples or families. Some of the main therapeutic approaches I use are family systems, communication, (SFFT) Solution Focused Family Therapy and Gottman for couples and families. Spiritual Counseling often used useful techniques are (CBT) cognitive Behavioral Therapy, (REBT) Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy, Existential Therapy, (EFT) Emotion Focused Therapy, (DBT) Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and integrating therapy with the persons choice of faith, 12 step affiliation, medication assisted treatments, rational recovery, culture and personal identification. My philosophy is that people can change, adjust, learn and adapt to new ways of coping with life stressors that can restore purpose and meaning in their lives. Sometimes making slight adjustments to our belief systems, thought processes, emotions and behaviors can produce a positive life change. I also believe that past traumatic experiences can surface and take over our lives in the here and now, if not treated. My career in the behavioral health/substance use disorder industry began in 1997 at Foundations Sober Living Homes in San Diego, California which I owned for 10 years. Since that time, I realized I had to return to school in 2009 in order to fulfill my purpose in working with others. I earned my Associates Degree in Applied Sciences – Chemical Dependency at Rio Salado College, then I completed my Bachelor of Psychology at Grand Canyon University, and then a Master of Science in Addiction Counseling, also from Grand Canyon University. I’m happy to announce that I graduated with a second master’s degree in professional counseling from Ottawa University on 12/31/2021. I currently hold a license as an Arizona LISAC-Licensed Independent Substance Abuse Counselor. I am dual licensed as a LAC-Licensed Associate Counselor. I began my clinical career in 2008, when I moved to Arizona from San Diego and started working on the clinical side of addiction and behavioral health treatment. I’ve worked in several residential and outpatient treatment facilities across Arizona both in the public and private sector. I would like to say welcome to Phoenix Foundations Recovery and your new way of life. Please remember you’re not alone! Often, working with people who are experiencing some form or severity of addiction have an underlining psychological issue they are self-medicating such as stress, anxiety, social anxiety, anger, trauma, abandonment, situational depression or a life adjustment. When this underlined issue is treated, the severity and distress of the addiction is reduced. I have 27 years’ experience working in addictions and mental health, both public and private. Although I’ve been involved in 12 step programs for 39 years, I understand that “one size does not fit all” and using many alternative strategies is good practice. Are you feeling distressed and frustrated over having lost some or all control over gambling, shopping, obsessive & compulsive behaviors, sex, alcohol, cannabis, or other substances in your life or the lives of loved ones? Are you feeling despair, isolation, anxiety, loneliness or depression? Are you re-living past hurt & loss repeatedly? Have the continuing stressors of the pandemic driven a wedge between you and your spouse or significant other? Has the pandemic caused you social anxiety? “Stop waiting for tomorrow, let’s start the Healing Process Today”.
