All About Family Therapy

Relationships can be hard, puzzling, and defeating at times. My job is to help you understand the parts of your heart that are unseen and unheard so you can communicate that with your loved ones. Connecting and staying connected is a fundamental need of humanity. Helping my clients discover their cycle and how to change it to a postive interaction is what I do.  

In both family and individual therapy, I identify patterns of behavior, thoughts, and beliefs that will help bring insight to areas that need some empathy and care.  I am Level 1 trained in Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP) for individuals.  Using Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples and families (most empirically based couple's therapy) helps create positive cycles and de-escalate negative ones.  I have completed the EFT externship as well.  I look forward to helping you and/or your family.

Psychological Services

We utilize a Whole-Brain approach through Experiential Theory along with Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP) and Emotionally-Focused Therapy (EFT). These theories first use an empathetic route using right-brain functioning before addressing attachment needs that involve left-brain functioning. The right brain uses emotions while the left brain uses logic. Integrating both produces favorable outcomes.

We are focused on collaboration towards successful mental health treatment. Clinical studies have shown that the combination of both psychotherapy and medication has the best outcomes. We provide referrals for both pharmaceutical and natural medicine options when desired.

Vanessa Grace Fagnant, MFTC, MTS

Marriage and Family Therapist Candidate

I am a wife and mother of three children. I know the struggles of Marriage and Family, but I also know the joys.  Not only have I completed a Masters in Marriage and Family Studies (M.T.S.) and Marriage and Family Therapy (M.F.T.) Masters from Regis University, I am also certified in Emotionally Focused Therapy.  I have worked hard to integrate the philosophy of “Being as Gift” into experiential theories such as EFT. This philosophy highlights who we are as humans, and shifts the value from what we do to who we are. So often we do not learn this message in today’s society or from our Families of Origin. Sometimes we need help shifting our views and learning to validate and affirm our unique selves. I believe in expanding discussion on both positive and negative experiences (as outlined in Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy). I accompany families, couples, and individuals in their journey to discover how accessing CORE emotions can lead to finding hope and joy in whatever life brings.

I enjoy working with couples and families from all backgrounds. I help couples and families resolve conflict by identifying the underlying emotions and cycles or patterns (using EFT).  Identifying “the cycle as the problem” helps resolve conflict and move into positive patterns and ways to communicate. 

 

I have over 7 years of experience in youth ministry (large and small group settings).  I am comfortable and willing to see families of all ages.  I use play therapy (available for all ages) and imagery to engage the integration of the right brain to aid the processing of anxiety, depression, and relational trauma. I do not work with children separate from their parents unless they are over the age of 13 and request individual therapy.
