"Sometimes you can see the demons clearly; they might be anxiety, persistent and unmanageable anger, depression or feelings of worthlessness. But sometimes you don't see them because they've become such a part of your life; then those demons may take the form of frequent struggles with a boss at work, a pervasive sense of emptiness, or a series of failed relationships. My work is about helping individuals and couples with their demons."

"My approach to therapy relies on establishing a collaborative relationship with my patient(s) so that we can work together to identify the habitual patterns of thinking, feeling and acting that keep you from enjoying the quality of life you would like for yourself. I create a supportive environment that allows you the patient to talk openly without fear of judgment. By the time you leave therapy you will not only have solved the problem that brought you in, but you will take away a set of skills that will help you effectively cope with whatever challenges life may present in the future."

""Freedom is what you do with what has been done to you," (Jean-Paul Sartre). We all have had things done to us. These things do not define us - the key is what we do with them afterward. I believe each and every person has what they need right inside of them; thus my job is not to fix or change, but to teach the skills to help you tap into that inner source. The answers you are looking for are available and can be found."
"My approach to therapy comes from the belief that within each of us is an inner wisdom, that when accessed will guide us to new insights, answers, relief and even healing from our burdens and struggles. I believe each of us was designed to find healing, when we do our own, honest "soul searching" or inner exploration. Richard Schwartz, developer of the Internal Family Systems model, stumbled upon an approach to navigating our internal systems through work with his clients. He discovered that we all possess qualities positive when connected to this source of inner wisdom."
"My name is Lucy Mahan; born and raised in Alaska. I began my counseling career in an adolescent group home working with children ages 12-18. From there I transitioned into a residential center for men and women with substance abuse issues. I am a licensed professional counselor/supervisor with a level II Chemical Dependency certification and am trained in EMDR and Sensorimotor Therapy."
"I see psychotherapy as being less a method of *treatment* than it is a process of *healing*--beyond relieving uncomfortable symptoms and resolving difficult experiences, healing is really about becoming as fully as possible who we are, about becoming free to make (and live with) our own choices, and about developing compassion for ourselves and others. My approach to therapy and counseling focuses on facilitating the natural wisdom of the psyche, and on going together into whatever experiences this healing process requires."
"I have been practicing Marital and Family Therapy in the Anchorage, Alaska, area since 1976.

My training as well as my life experiences have molded my professional identity as a marriage and family therapist. It is of utmost importance for me to maintain a consciousness about the differences that each and every client and couple presents. We each have our own individual story and map that we bring to our relationship journey."

I offer effective personalized, client-centered, strength-based therapy for a variety of challenges ranging from poor self-esteem, anxiety, stress management, to more intense disorders of PTSD, and substance abuse. With courage and sound theory we can transform life; and happiness is certainly achievable."
"Confidentiality, trust, and therapeutic compatibility are essential for the successful resolution of a person's problems in counseling and psychotherapy. They form the foundation for an honest dialogue between client and therapist that enhances a person's ability to deal with what is true in their life. As a therapist, my job is to help clients identify and resolve those truths and move on, feeling better about themselves and more confident in their ability to handle the difficult problems and challenges that life presents.
