Perhaps you are suffering devastating grief, an unwanted transition, loss of job or divorce, days of anxiety, depression, or chronic illness.

MISSION STATEMENT: Gold Canyon Counseling seeks to bring hope, healing, and direction to people who are facing life's challenges.
It is the practice of Family Psychologist, Pastoral Counselor and Professor Dr. Beth Gioia (joya) PhD, LPC/IL. Dr. Beth provides individual, couples, and family counseling, along with cognitive behavioral therapy, emotional focused therapy, hypnotherapy, and Christian Counseling (for those who desire a spiritual foundation).
Philosophy: Gold Canyon Counseling is based on the belief that individuals, couples, and families can find health, wellness, and peace of mind by changing the way they think, behave, and interact with others. Beliefs are the result of years of learning. If beliefs are distorted, these internal messages affect the way people cope and interact with others. Many problems stem from past trauma or loss. Therapy seeks to shine light and replaces these dark areas of thinking and replace unhealthy patterns of thinking. Through cognitive-behavioral therapy, emotion focused counseling, hypno-therapy, healing prayer, and communication skills building, my clients learn how to cope with stressors and/or thrive in relationships.
Depending on your need: Therapeutic Hypnosis can be utilized for problems with weight, motivation, anxiety, and smoking. Communication and assertiveness skills are implemented for those having relationship challenges. Individuals who are facing difficult situation can find shared wisdom and compassionate support. People who are grieving can find the comfort of a spiritual focus that gives hope in the light of God's love.
