Healing That Helps You Get Unstuck
Every person grows and learns in different ways. To that point, every counselor or guide has their own techniques and exercises to help clients. Not every method is effective for everyone, but with the right guidance, you can defeat your inner demons and recapture your life. That's where Christy Maxey thrives.
Christy is a trauma EMDR coach dedicated to empowering people with the knowledge of true self-love. She aims to help men and women overcome negative self-talk and patterns and finally live the fulfilling life they deserve. Christy has a special focus on supporting women who experience anxiety, depression, lack of self-trust, people-pleasing, and feelings of inadequacy. Additionally, she's an expert in helping men who are navigating anger, stress, and relationship challenges.
If you have received help from therapists and life coaches in the past but find yourself falling back into the same patterns as before, know that you're not alone. The simple truth could be that whatever problem you were trying to face was left unresolved.
Essentially, you cut the top of the weed, but you didn't pull out the entire root. In a sense, you put a band-aid on a serious wound when you needed more comprehensive, specialized treatment. Unlike many life coaches, Christy Maxey aims to solve the root cause of your mental and physical symptoms. By addressing the cause of your issues, you can reclaim your life and move forward without the baggage you've carried for so long. Take it from us - it's an incredible feeling!
Some of the most common problems that Christy helps solve for patients include:
- Difficulty Dealing with the Emotional Content at the Center of Their Problems
- A Lack of Resistance to and Awareness of "What Is"
- Fear and Uncertainty About Making Changes
- Fear of Getting Compassionate Help and Guidance
- Believing False Narratives Associated with Past Traumas and Experiences
Created by psychologist Dr. Francine Shapiro in 1987 as a treatment method for post-traumatic stress disorder, EMDR is an evidence-based treatment approach that provides both trauma-informed treatment and treatment protocol. Unlike traditional talk therapy, EMDR employs bilateral stimulation to replicate the Rapid Eye Movement (REM) phase of sleep. In fact, EMDR treatments have shown that the mind can heal from psychological trauma faster than traditional talk therapy.
Traumatic events often lead to negative beliefs and emotions, such as shame, anger, and sadness. EMDR enables your brain to reprocess such events, promoting healing, well-being, and positivity in patients.
If you're wondering whether or not EMDR treatment from Christy Maxey might be a good choice for you and your family, ask yourself these questions:
- Do You Feel Stuck in Your Life?
- Do You Find Yourself Stuck Feeling the Same Types of Fear, Sadness, or Anxiety?
- Have You Grown Accustomed to a Negative Inner Critic?
- Do You Feel Stuck with Feelings of Shame from Past Mistakes or Traumas?
- Are You Always Repeating the Same Patterns in Relationships? Too Nice, Too Accepting, Avoidant, Easy to Get Triggered, Etc.?
- Is Your Brain Full of Self-Doubt and Harmful Self-Talk?
How Does EMDR Therapy Work?
Once it's agreed that EMDR therapy is suitable for you, your initial sessions involve discussing your goals and enhancing your ability to cope with stress. In the following phases of EMDR therapy, you concentrate on a specific event or focus on a negative image, belief, emotion, or bodily sensation related to the event. You then focus on a positive belief indicating that the issue has been resolved.
While you're focused on the upsetting event, Christy begins sets of side-to-side eye movements, sounds, or taps. After each set, you are guided to observe what comes to mind. Shifts in insight or changes in images, feelings, or beliefs about the event may occur. It should be noted that you can stop therapy at any moment if necessary. The sets of eye movements, sounds, or taps will be repeated until distress caused by the event decreases. EMDR therapy can be used as a standalone treatment or in conjunction with other forms of therapy offered through the Maxx Method.
To help paint you a picture of how EMDR therapy works, think of it like a cast for a broken bone. Unlike other forms of therapy, however, EMDR can be more uncomfortable than traditional treatments. It's important to be ready for possible emotional exhaustion afterward. To cope, you can create a relaxing playlist and plan some activities to unwind. Once the sessions are finished, take some time to recharge and decompress.
Who Should Use EMDR Therapy in Chandler, AZ?
EMDR therapy is something anyone can benefit from. It's not only reserved for people with extreme experiences or traumas. Even mild cases of anxiety and depression can be treated by a trained EMDR coach like Christy Maxey. When you remember something that reminds you of a bad experience, your body might react like it's in danger, even if it's not. This is a normal reaction, but if it keeps happening, it can make you feel really stressed out. With EMDR, you can heal and learn new ways to cope without having to talk about exactly what happened. This can help you feel better and live your life without over-worrying and ruminating on negativity.
If you're one of the many people who have experienced lackluster results from one or more EMDR sessions, it's crucial that you do not give up hope. In fact, many men and women come to Christy Maxey having had poor EMDR experiences. Thankfully, they soon realize how impactful and fulfilling the therapy can be for trauma. That's especially true when combined with other therapies like Inner Child Healing and Guided Visualization. Of course, EMDR therapy in Chandler, AZ, isn't the best choice for every patient - after all, every person is different and responds to therapies in different ways.
To truly discover if EMDR therapy is the right choice for your mind and body, contact Christy ASAP to schedule your initial consultation. That way, you and Christy can get to know each other better and discover the best ways to promote long-term healing and well-being. With that said, patients choose EMDR treatments for many reasons. Some of the most common reasons for using EMDR therapy include the following:
- Panic Attacks and Anxiety
- PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome)
- Eating Disorders like Bulimia, Anorexia, and More
- Trauma from Abuse and Violence
- Abusive or Violent Relationships
- Rest and Sleep Problems
- Social Anxiety
- Childhood Trauma and Abuse
- Anger and Sadness
- Fear of Speaking in Public

The Life-Changing Benefits of EMDR Therapy
Though EMDR therapy is more popular than ever, many people are still unaware of its benefits and how life-changing the therapy can be for people who are stuck. If that sounds like you, keep these benefits in mind as you continue to research this amazing therapy choice.
Triumph Over Trauma
Recovering from a traumatic experience can be extremely challenging, but EMDR therapy can provide a solution. Trauma can create triggers that make you feel like you're experiencing the event all over again. EMDR can help reorganize the thoughts, feelings, and experiences associated with the trauma so that you no longer feel controlled by it. While the effects of trauma may never completely disappear, EMDR can significantly reduce its impact on your life and enable you to live in the present without constantly reliving the past.
Enhance Your Mental Fortitude
Achieving personal growth involves accepting one's identity, building self-esteem, and understanding the internal narratives that shape our daily experiences. EMDR and guided therapeutic processing can help create a peaceful, efficient, and confident setting for individuals to accept their past and move forward. This therapeutic process empowers individuals, providing them with the strength and courage to confront any obstacle that impedes their well-being.
Reshape Your Life
During EMDR therapy sessions, traumatic events are broken down, enabling patients to gain a different perspective on negative events. This altered view can be as life-changing as the traumatic event itself, giving individuals greater control over how they adapt to the effects of trauma.
Overcome Circular Thinking
If you struggle with circular thinking patterns related to anxiety disorders, phobias, or generalized anxiety, EMDR therapy may be helpful. EMDR can assist you in overcoming these thought spirals by teaching you how to deal with your fears and worries without becoming overwhelmed by anxiety.
Understanding the Phases of EMDR Therapy in Chandler, AZ
According to the EMDR Institute, there are eight phases in traditional EMDR treatment:
The EMDR Institute has identified eight phases of EMDR therapy. These are:
- History and Treatment Planning
- Body scan
History and Treatment Planning
During the initial stage of Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy, Christy will conduct a comprehensive evaluation of your medical and emotional history and create a treatment plan. This stage involves discussing the particular issue that led you to seek therapy. You'll also identify behaviors and symptoms associated with the issues you're facing. Based on this information, Christy will develop a personalized treatment plan that outlines the goals to be addressed using EMDR therapy in Chandler, AZ:
- The Traumas or Events Causing Issues
- Present-Day Problems and Traumas Causing Distress
- Healthy Behaviors and Skills Needed for Long-Term Well-Being
During this phase, Christy will explain the theory of EMDR, how it is applied, and what you can expect during and after treatment. Christy will then teach you several techniques for relaxation so that you have the tools to calm down in the event of emotional disturbance.
One of the biggest goals of this first phase is to establish trust between you and your EMDR coach. While you don't have to go into great detail about disturbing memories, if you don't trust your therapist, you may not accurately report what is felt and what changes you are or aren't experiencing. If your goal is to please the therapist and say you feel better when you really aren't, no therapy in the world will resolve your trauma.
In this phase, you will be prompted to access each target in a controlled manner so it can be effectively processed. Processing does not mean talking about it. From there, Christy identifies different parts of the target to be processed. The first step is for you to select a specific image or mental picture from the target event (identified during Phase One) that best represents the memory.
You then choose a positive statement that you would like to believe. The statement should have an internal sense of control, such as "I am valuable/lovable/a good person/in control" or "I can achieve success." In some cases, when the primary emotion is fear, such as after a natural disaster, the negative thought could be "I am in danger," and the positive thought could be "I am safe now." "I am in danger" is considered a negative thought because fear is no longer necessary, but it is still present in the nervous system. The positive thought should reflect what is appropriate in the present moment.
During this phase, you will also identify negative emotions like anger or fear and physical sensations that you associate with trauma.
This phase of EMDR therapy in Chandler, AZ, hones in on the disturbing sensations and emotions associated with your trauma and the ways that you respond to it. In doing so, patients often resolve similar events as well. The goal of this phase is to use sounds, taps, or eye movements with shifting focus until your subjective disturbance levels are lowered.
The goal here is to concentrate on the positive belief that you have identified to replace your negative belief(s). For example, you may have suffered child abuse in your younger years and hold the negative belief that you are powerless. Christy will help strengthen and install positive cognitions that reinforce the fact that you are in control, not the negative thoughts and emotions keeping you stuck.
Research into EMDR sessions indicates that physical responses to unresolved thoughts are common. After your positive cognition is fortified and installed, Christy will ask that you bring the original target event to the forefront of your mind. If she notices any additional body tension, those physical sensations are reprocessed. If you do not have any body tension or symptoms present when your original target event is brought up, your EMDR session is considered successful.
Typical EMDR sessions end with closure and a debriefing on what you can expect between your current and subsequent EMDR sessions. If necessary, Christy will provide calming techniques that you can use outside of therapy. This part of the EMDR process ensures that you leave Christy's office feeling better than you did at the beginning of the session.
This phase gives Christy insight into any other treatment plans that may be necessary for your healing and well-being. Like any type of sound therapy, reevaluation is critical in determining the success of your EMDR treatment over a period of time.
Reshape Your Life with EMDR Therapy from Christy Maxey
Regardless of the events and trauma keeping you stuck, EMDR might be a viable solution for reclaiming your life. Christy Maxey provides patients with the safe space needed to do so.

The second location is owned by Executive Chef Gabriel Garfio, the son of Gamaliel and Maria Garfio, who co-founded the Frutilandia and Taqueria Factory concepts and franchises. A chef for over 13 years and the previous owner of Sunnyside Breakfast Lounge, Chef Gabriel Garfio has a background in culinary, restaurant management and catering from Mountain Shadows Resort and Palo Verde Country Club.
“The Chandler community has overwhelmingly supported us since we opened our doors and we are proud to be able to bring a concept that has been in the making for 5 years to even more Chandler residents,” said Gamaliel Garfio, co-founder of Taqueria Factory.
The fast-casual taqueria in Ocotillo offering full service and to-go service is in a 2,600 square-foot space and features a walk-up counter for ordering, comfortable seating for up to 75 guests, outdoor dining patio, and an indoor bar to imbibe on real fruit margaritas, micheladas, bottle and draft beers.

Glen Wacker tells ABC15 he was given a notice to vacate the Chandler Meadows community near Ray Road because he lives in an RV. A spokesperson for Treehouse Communities said in an email Monday that they are transitioning, so that all properties will be manufactured homes, “While these residents have not had leases, we've welcomed them and they've called Chandler Meadows home.

CHANDLER, AZ — A Valley man with terminal cancer is being told he can no longer live at a Chandler mobile home community because of redevelopment plans that are in the works.
Glen Wacker tells ABC15 he was given a notice to vacate the Chandler Meadows community near Ray Road because he lives in an RV.
A spokesperson for Treehouse Communities said in an email Monday that they are transitioning, so that all properties will be manufactured homes, “While these residents have not had leases, we've welcomed them and they've called Chandler Meadows home. The community is transitioning so that all properties will be occupied with manufactured homes. As a result, we've given notice to residents that they have until the end of June to move their RV,” a statement read.
Wacker told ABC15, he is currently in liver and kidney failure, he is also one of eight people told they would have to move by the end of June.
“It’s leaving us in a very bad situation, in a very short amount of time to disrupt your life when you don’t have much of a life left,” said Wacker.
Wacker is known in the film community for his movie stunts and also provided props for films.
For Wacker, moving his RV isn’t as simple as it seems as he has lived in the same location for seven years and has not moved it.
Along with the RV, he tells ABC15 he has a large collection of movie props inside sheds, as well as vehicles parked on the lot he rents.
“I want to keep them, they’re a part of my life,” said Wacker.
A spokesperson for Chandler Meadows added by email, “We recognize that this is a difficult time for them and we are trying to work with them to help ease their transition.”
For Wacker though, he worries about finding a new place to live, “let me stay here in peace until I finally go, let me enjoy what time I have left here,” he added.
On Tuesday, Chandler Meadows announced they have made a six-month extension for residents, including Wacker.
Chandler Meadows, full statement:
"We are committed to doing right by the residents of our community. Historically, there have been a small number of residents who own RVs located on the Chandler Meadows property, whom we have welcomed. The community is transitioning so that all properties will be occupied with manufactured homes, and while only 10 days’ notice is required by law, given feedback we've received, we are voluntarily extending the timeline to 6 months and are committed to doing everything we can to make it a seamless transition for them."
To learn more about Wacker's story, a fundraiser has been created.

Although the May 31 mulch fire that began in the East Valley remains contained, the fire is still burning, according to the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office.
In line with the original estimation of a 24- to 48-hour burn, no other updates were provided by MCSO.
On Wednesday, Rural Metro Fire spokesperson Shawn Gilleland said that smoke would be lingering throughout the next few days, which crews would continue to monitor.
Previous coverage: Smoke persists after mulch fire near Mesa contained
"Smoke that moved over portions of the Valley yesterday (Thursday) cleared out of the area by mid-morning as temperatures warmed. All PM-2.5 (smoke) monitors within the Phoenix Valley yesterday were in the Good AQI category for the 24-hour average, which is what the EPA federal health standard is based on," Arizona Department of Environmental Quality Communications Manager Caroline Oppleman told The Arizona Republic.
However, light smoke produced from the fire had begun pushing toward the Gilbert and Chandler areas on Friday, but Oppleman noted that it will follow the same trend as Thursday, lifting and clearing out above the surface as the day moves on.
"While short-term light to moderate smoke impacts will be possible as the fire continues to burn, we are not expecting values to exceed the federal health standard," Oppleman said.
ADEQ meteorologist Matt Pace also provided an update via the department's hourly air quality Phoenix forecast.
"While you may smell smoke at the surface, monitors and sensors in the area have not seen values above the health standard set by the EPA. With that said, if you are smelling smoke, you are breathing smoke, and if you are sensitive to it, limit your outdoor activity," Pace said.
A high pollution advisory is in effect Friday through Sunday, June 4, but Pace said it is due to high levels of ozone and not due to high levels of smoke from the mulch fire.
"As for air quality, with light winds for the next several days forecasting ozone to be in the USG category today through Sunday, so an Ozone High Pollution Advisory is in effect. By Monday, winds will help to clear the airshed of ozone and ozone precursors, with values lowering back into the Moderate AQI category," Pace said.

City of Chandler plans water and sewer improvements to Dobson Road and Chandler Boulevard

CHANDLER, Ariz. – The City of Chandler is preparing to rehabilitate or repair sewer pipe and six manholes near the intersection of Dobson Road and Chandler Boulevard, and in Dobson Road to just north of Galveston Street.

CHANDLER, Ariz. – The City of Chandler is preparing to rehabilitate or repair sewer pipe and six manholes near the intersection of Dobson Road and Chandler Boulevard, and in Dobson Road to just north of Galveston Street. The City is also preparing to install new waterline and service connections on Chandler Boulevard from Dobson Road to Chippewa Place on the north side of Chandler Boulevard and from Dobson Road to Meadows Drive on the south side of Chandler Boulevard.
Construction is currently scheduled to begin mid-May 2023 with an anticipated completion date of August 2024.
This area was studied by the City’s Wastewater Sewer Assessment Program that evaluates, prioritizes and makes needed repairs to sewer pipes and manholes. The assessment program identified the need for improvements near Dobson Road and Chandler Boulevard, which has infrastructure ranging from 35 to 50 years in age. In addition, water mains prioritized for replacement in the 2018 Water Master Plan will also be replaced from west of Dobson on Chandler Boulevard east to Chippewa Place.
During construction, roads are expected to remain open for travel with lane or turn restrictions where needed. Traffic control is expected to remain in place 24/7 to protect the work zone.
Where possible, the rehabilitation will include the installation of a lining within the existing sewer pipe. This process will reduce construction impacts to nearby businesses and eliminate the need for excavation. In some segments, the replacement and relocation of sewer pipe and manholes, along with the abandonment of the old structures, will require trenching and installing the pipeline. Bypass pumps and piping will be operated and monitored 24/7 during the sewer rehabilitation and replacement.
Water main replacement will take place by trenching and installing pipeline. Should disruptions to business or residential water service be needed, those impacted will be notified in advance.
Access to residences and businesses will be maintained during construction. There may be a need for driveway restrictions to businesses; however, the contractor will ensure there are alternate driveways open for access during any restrictions.
For more details about this project, visit the Sewer & Water Improvements: Dobson Rd. and Chandler Blvd. Project or call the project hotline at 480-898-4060.
