I’m here…

Are you feeling stuck?

Hello, my name is Christine Heinisch and I am a Psychotherapist in Tucson, AZ.  Past practices and coping that once served the purpose of protecting you from further difficulties, often become obstacles to your well-being as well as interfere with your functioning in relationships and community.

When caught in the cycle of stress and / or trauma you may build a narrative that involves blaming of others and / or shaming and blaming yourself. By seeing the contributing biological, psychological, and social factors and by taking responsibility for changing the things you are capable of changing, you begin to successfully navigate obstacles.

My Background

As a long time (22+ years) practitioner of both meditation and postural yoga, I know first-hand the exploration potential of mind-body practices.

I earned my Bachelor’s degree from Shimer College, a great books Socratic dialogue college in Chicago, IL. Shimer, was instrumental in informing my understanding of communication and group dynamics. While at Shimer, I read Martin Buber’s “I and Thou” which had a profound impact and gave me a glimpse of an expanded notion of self. Reading Buber led me to the study of contemplative practices. The application of critical thinking methods I learned at Shimer, helped me to understand and view some of the contemplative traditions I would encounter later.

I received my Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Adam’s State University in Colorado.  It is here where I learned to form effective relationships with my clients.  Research shows that the relationship between client and therapist is of utmost importance.
