Drew Hutchinson, MFT Psychotherapy and Counseling Services
Effective therapy for a wide range of personal and interpersonal issues. Whether you are struggling with depression, anxiety, addiction, or just a lack of motivation, there is hope. I offer effective psychotherapy that will help you integrate mind, body, and spirit so that you can feel more alive, satisfied and free in your life. Together, we will work through the beliefs, barriers and baggage that hold you back from feeling more productive and fulfilled in your everyday life. Through energetic somatic work, you will get more in touch with your body, emotions and intuition. Through an analysis of your relational conflicts, you will become more able to experience intimacy and truth in your intimate relationships. By developing a deeper sense of who you are, you will find new and creative ways to express yourself in the world around you.
By helping couples to improve verbal and physical communication, both emotional and physical intimacy can be increased. This creates the opportunity for couples to develop secure attachments and deepen the feeling of connection with each other. I help couples to communicate their deepest needs and desires so that the relationship can feel more fulfilling and secure. I employ Emotionally Focused and Energetic Relational Therapy © with couples. For more information about ERT© please see my FAQ below.
Working through deeply held emotional issues can free you to feel more alive and fulfilled in your life.

I have had experience and success helping people who struggle with depression, anxiety, and other life issues.
For some, group therapy is the most effective therapeutic setting. I offer groups for a variety of life situations. I currently do not have any active groups but please check back from time to time or call me for more information about your needs.

ERT© is a culmanation of my years of working with people, studying a variety of therapeutic approaches, and teaching therapeutic techniques to thousands of therapists. ERT integrates the natural energy of the body, with the healing properties of relationship to create a powerful external and internal environment for change. ERT draws upon your own capacity to heal and grow to create change. The concepts and practices of Energetic Relational Therapy are grounded in body oriented therapies such as Hakomi and BioEnergetics. Relational Analytic concepts help to integrate the experiential and the psyche. Releasing the body energy into the container of a solid sense of self creates an experience of wholeness and integrity in relationships and functioning.
Does coming to psychotherapy mean there is something wrong with me?
Absolutely not. In fact, your ability to take a step towards change is a strong indication of your desire and ability to heal. We all have challenges and discomfort in our lives. It is important for you to explore those things that are blocking you from living more fully and from reaching your life's potential.
