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 Mesa, 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 Mesa, 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

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 Mesa, 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 Mesa, 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 Mesa, 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.

Gusty Phoenix-area storms that overturned planes at Mesa airport may return

Following a series of thunderstorms that ripped through portions of the Valley on Tuesday night, chances of a reprise were possible through the afternoon for Greater Phoenix.
According to the National Weather Service, storms had "erupted" in the early hours of Wednesday morning for much of the foothills and higher terrain sections of the Valley, spawning the potential for strong, gusty winds, heavy downpours, frequent lightning and small hail.
"It looks like the predominant amount of activity today with shower and thunderstorm activity is going to stay primarily east of Phoenix," Phoenix branch meteorologist Alex Young told The Arizona Republic.
Young added that if storms were to hit the metro area, they'd likely do so toward the middle to late afternoon hours.
Per the forecast, temperatures were slated to be as high as 101 degrees in Phoenix on Wednesday; however, depending on cloud coverage, the Valley could remain below 100 degrees.
"We've got a lot of work to do if we even get to 100 today," Young said.
Looking toward the weekend, conditions will once again start to dry out, decreasing the concerns for convection and warming back up to the mid-100s.
Tuesday storms bring hail, high winds
Tuesday night's storms crushed sections of the Valley, bringing heavy rain, hail and high winds that caused the temporary closure of a school and sent planes at Falcon Field Airport in Mesa airborne.
"Last night we had quite a bit of activity," Young said. "We saw reports of 70-80 mph wind gusts with that at this point. There were some hail reports as well, looks like up to 1.75 inches in the Chandler area."
In regard to rain, according to the Maricopa County Flood Control District, amounts varied all over the metro area and Maricopa County. While a number of areas reported totals below half an inch, those in north Phoenix, east Mesa and Apache Junction took most of the pounding, some areas boasting upward of 2.5 inches
The winds caused structural damage to Zaharis Elementary in Mesa, forcing Mesa Public Schools administration to close the campus until the roof is repaired.
The school district told The Republic that students were scheduled to return to school on Tuesday, Sept. 19, but that could change as staff continued to assess the situation.
Teachers were in contact with their students for at-home learning activities, the district said, and added that families in need of assistance would have to fill out a form emailed to them.
Winds were also felt at Falcon Field Airport, as the reliever to Sky Harbor International and Phoenix-Mesa Gateway got hit hard by the disastrous cell at around 8:30 p.m.
The Maricopa County Flood Control District reported that Falcon Field received nearly 1.5 inches of rain during the downpour.
"They had about 20 planes outside that were damaged, including some that were overturned from the storm," Mesa senior public information specialist Kevin Christopher told The Arizona Republic. "We've got numerous hangars with some damage, both hangars owned by the airport and privately owned."
Two vintage World War II hangars were also among those battered and beaten, one sustaining some roof and door damage, while the other had its roof blown off.
Christopher added that no one was injured and that the airport remains open and never closed during the onslaught's peak.
Is Mesa the next city on the Arizona Coyotes' radar? Here's how Mesa leaders are reacting

As the Arizona Coyotes continue looking for a new home in metro Phoenix, after Tempe voters resoundingly rejected the team's proposal to build an arena, Mesa is the latest city being floated as a lifeboat for the team.
How realistic that idea is depends on who you ask.
Mesa Mayor John Giles told The Arizona Republic, the Valley's second-largest city would be a great spot for the Coyotes. Although he has not had a conversation with the Coyotes, he said he'd be surprised if they didn't take a look at the options in Mesa.
Unlike the Tempe plan, those options would be on privately owned land.
The buzz of where the Coyotes could land include Phoenix's Footprint Center, the shuttered Fiesta Mall property, other privately owned land in Mesa or another east Valley city.
Xavier Gutierrez, Coyotes president and CEO, said Wednesday the team is committed to Arizona and has "already started re-engaging with local officials and sites to solidify a new permanent home in the Valley." The team's Twitter account posted a poll asking people to vote where the Coyotes should build their "new home." The poll had four east Valley cities including Mesa, Scottsdale, Chandler and Gilbert.
The Arizona Coyotes declined comment for this article.
The possibility of renovating Phoenix's Footprint Center to allow the Coyotes hockey team to be a tenant has also been floated.
The day after Tempe's no-vote, Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego said through a spokesperson, she would be "happy to discuss potential options" with the team if it wanted to work together to keep playing in the Valley.
Councilman Jim Waring, whose district oversees northeast Phoenix, said Wednesday that Phoenix offered " potential lifeboat" for the team. Bringing the Coyotes could "maximize the investment" of the Sun's Footprint Center " if it pencils out," he added, citing a possible boost in tax revenues for his city.
On Thursday, as the complications of retrofitting the Footprint Center to accommodate basketball and hockey in a shared venue sunk in, Gallego said through a spokesperson that the NHL franchise had not reached out.
Tempe officials have remained largely silent since the election.
But in Mesa, Giles said there are several options that would be ripe for development along the freeway corridors. Fiesta Mall is one of those options, he said. The infrastructure exists there to build out the area and it would need few public improvements, he said.
"I think it's worth keeping (the Coyotes) in the Valley and continuing to nurture that sports franchise and youth sports systems that are a part of that," Giles said. "I don't want to see them leave the Valley... One of the strategic locations in Mesa would be a good choice for them."
Earlier this year, the developers of the mall property filed a pre-submittal application signaling it will raze the building to make room for master-planned development.
No formal submittal for development of the Fiesta Mall site has been filed with to Mesa, a city spokesperson confirmed.
“Fiesta Mall is one of the most attractive pieces of urban real estate in the Valley today. It is massive, adjacent to three major highways and only 20 minutes from two major airports,” the city said in a news release.
“We look forward to working with the property owner on proposals to bring diverse uses to the Fiesta Mall site and long-term sustainable and vibrant economic activity to the Fiesta District.”
The city would not confirm to The Arizona Republic if it has been approached by the Arizona Coyotes regarding a potential proposal.
Giles said there are other properties along the Loop 202 Red Mountain freeway that he knows could be ideal spots for the development.
Per the city charter, voters would need to approve any expenditure of public funds, grant tax concessions or relief. Similarly, voter approval would be required if the city incurred debt greater than $1.5 million to construct or aid in the construction of an entertainment facility, arena or other multi-purpose facility. Giles said he doesn't see a scenario where a vote would take place because it would be taken of care by private development.
How other local leaders are reacting
Maricopa County Supervisor Thomas Galvin, who represents areas of Mesa, said in tweet he would love for the Arizona Coyotes to permanently settle in his east Valley district.
“I’m willing to help find taxpayer-friendly answer that makes sure the (NHL) sees (Arizona) as a long-term home,” Galvin wrote.
Councilmember Scott Somers, who represents southeast Mesa, told The Republic that he has not had any conversations about the potential interest from the Coyotes to move to Mesa and that it is too early to speculate where the Coyotes could land.
However, conceptually, he said he’d entertain the idea, but anything involving “sales-tax dollars would pretty much be a non-starter.”
He said using mechanisms like GPLET, a tax incentive agreement to temporarily replace a building’s property tax with an excise tax, or to create a community facilities district to obtain community funding for property development are methods that would protect Mesa taxpayers.
Both tools were part of the doomed Tempe deal, rejected by voters. Opponents derided the incentives as tax giveaways for billionaires.
However, a privately-financed deal for the Coyotes would be the best bet for the team to find a home in Mesa, Somers said. He pointed to the development of SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California where the NFL Rams and Chargers play as an example of what that could look like.
He said the 80-acre Fiesta Mall property could be a good spot for the team to land.
Councilmember Jenn Duff, who represents the central area of the city and downtown, said she has not had any meetings yet related to the Coyotes. She was surprised to see Tempe’s ballot fail.
“For me the arena isn’t as much of a question as what comes with that and how deals are structure,” she said.
Duff’s district does have a notable 25-acre vacant piece of city owned land along University and Mesa drives, commonly known as Site 17. She does not see that land as a potential spot for consideration. “It is not something that I think feeds into… what we’re trying to accomplish in the downtown area.”
Giles also said Site 17 would not be on the table for consideration.
Councilmember Mark Freeman, who represents the area in northeast central Mesa in a text message to The Republic said, “I think it’s exciting as far as I’m concerned and we’ll see how far it progresses.”
Councilmembers Alicia Goforth, Francisco Heredia and Julie Spilsbury did not respond to inquiries from The Arizona Republic.
Republic reporters Sam Kmack, Taylor Seely and Jason Wolf contributed to this article.

MESA, AZ — The site of a once-iconic mall could be rebooted as a major gathering point in the East Valley once again.
Verde Investments Inc. proposes to do just that at the site of the closed — and mostly demolished — Fiesta Mall in Mesa. The Tempe-based company filed a rezoning application with the city of Mesa to shift the zoning from Limited Commercial to Infill District-2 which would make way for a mixed-use development.
In March, Verde filed pre-submittal documents to the city of Mesa that loosely outlined how it would redevelop the parcel on the southwest corner of Southern Avenue and Alma School Road, directly off the U.S. 60 freeway. The proposal included turning the site into new retail, up to 4,000 multifamily units, flex office and open green space.

Connect Homes, an industry-leading prefab housing provider, announced it will be opening a new factory in Mesa, Arizona in the first quarter of 2024. The factory will be the second facility in Connect Homes’ portfolio and expand the company’s footprint into the Mountain West to better serve and provide the region with modern, precisely engineered modular housing solutions.
The company designs, manufactures, delivers, and installs beautiful single-family homes and other housing solutions across the U.S. Its patented steel-frame modular system makes it possible to build architect-designed homes, semi-custom homes, multi-unit communities, and shelters, faster and more affordably than traditional construction.
“With increasing demand for the Connect Homes suite of housing innovations, we have reached our capacity limit in our current San Bernardino factory and now is the time to grow our manufacturing base with a second state-of-the-art factory in Mesa that gives us the space to build and supply the next generation of housing,” said Deborah Casper, CEO of the homebuilder. “Our new factory will play an integral role in providing elegant, affordable homes to prospective homeowners and shelter for individuals experiencing homelessness across the Mountain West and we are grateful to the City of Mesa for welcoming Connect Homes to the region. We are committed to being a part of the solution to the acute housing shortage in California, Arizona, and across the country.”
The Arizona factory will be capable of manufacturing up to 5,000 square feet of housing per week. Additionally, the facility will be approximately three times larger than Connect Homes’ San Bernardino factory and will create more than 90 jobs for the local Mesa economy. At this size,tThe company will be able to simultaneously run multiple industry-leading assembly lines to meet the growing demand for the company’s innovative homebuilding projects.
“We’re pleased to welcome housing innovator Connect Homes to Mesa,” said Mayor John Giles. “Cities and towns throughout the United States are working to address the need for a range of housing options, which is a high priority in Mesa. It’s great to see Connect Homes bringing more high-quality, affordable housing options to our market.”
“As the Greater Phoenix housing market continues to evolve, we need innovative companies like Connect Homes to lead with unique ideas and quality manufacturing,” said Greater Phoenix Economic Council President and CEO Chris Camacho. “Their presence in Mesa will provide more options to residents looking for affordable, eco-friendly opportunities.”
The company launched in 2012 and delivered its first single family home in 2013. Since then, the company has delivered 122 homes, equaling over 800 modules, and built 37 ADU’s in California. Unique among homebuilders, Connect is a vertically integrated prefab company that designs, manufactures, transports, and installs modern, green single-family homes.
Connect Homes’ ability to oversee all aspects of the manufacturing and home delivery process enabled it to quickly design, build, and deploy non-congregate homeless housing solutions across California as part of Project Homekey, a statewide effort to sustain and rapidly expand housing for persons experiencing homelessness. As part of Project Homekey, Connect is partnering with cities to deploy modular homes in Mountain View, Long Beach and Victorville, California.
“Demand for attractive, affordable homes has never been higher,” said Gordon Stott, co- founder and chief architect at Connect Homes. “We are excited to begin producing and delivering quality, robust homes and continue transforming the way homes are built. The Mesa factory will be key in fulfilling our promise.”
The company was represented by Senior Vice President James Cohn and Vice President Stirling Pascal with Stream Realty Partners.
The homebuilder is actively recruiting for new positions at the AZ Factory, for more information please visit, http://connect-homes.com/Careers.
