I provide short-term psychotherapy services that are practical and solution-focused. A collaborative approach is taken when helping clients make the changes they are seeking.
Rapid Resolution Therapy
Rapid Resolution Therapy eliminates the ongoing effect stemming from disturbing or painful experiences. Eliminates the negative emotional or behavioral influence of traumatic events, whether these experiences are remembered, repressed or forgotten.
Marriage counseling, also called couples therapy, is a type of psychotherapy. Marriage counseling helps couples of all types recognize and resolve conflicts and improve their relationships.
Many employers and government agencies are now requiring substance use/abuse evaluations for individuals that have violated state/federal rules, licensure rule, or drug-free workplace employee contract. These violation evaluations often require a counselor with specific training and education in the field of addiction.
Psychotherapy for children focuses on the child, scientifically based on techniques designed to benefit children. Children express emotions differently than adults. It’s not uncommon for children to act out emotionally or exhibit mood, sleep, and social disturbances because they are not matured enough to articulate their emotions effectively.
Clinical Hypnosis also referred to as Hypnotherapy – is a guided hypnosis, or a trance-like state of focus and concentration achieved with the help of a clinical hypnotherapist. In this state, clients can turn their attention completely inward to find their own natural resources deep within, helping to make changes in certain areas of their life.

"Mr. Saavedra’s How to Revive Your Marriage: The Couples Therapy book was hopeful and inspirational for couples who are struggling in their relationships. It is rooted in neuropsychological theory and refereed research but written in layman’s terms for all to understand. I loved the analogies, simple strategies, and practical advice that individuals can immediately implement. I also appreciated the inspirational quotes throughout the book that reinforce the author’s ideas. It is evident that Mr. Saavedra has years of experience working with couples and this book can provide individuals with a lot of insight into how they can begin resolving issues within their relationship. A must-read for anyone wanting to improve their relationships. Bravo Mr. Saavedra!"
