Audra Owens, LPC
Audra is a native of Chandler and received her Masters in Counseling from Northern Arizona University in 2003. Audra is fully trained in Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples as well as trauma informed care for individuals. She specializes in helping couples deepen their emotional intimacy to create safe and secure attachment.
Her personal approach to therapy is that “As human beings we are biologically wired to connect. We are not meant to be solitary creatures and do best when we have deep connections with the people most important to us. When our foundation with our partner is fractured or disconnected, we feel distress that can lead to anxiety and depression, resentment, anger and conflict. Healing this connection improves our overall health and well-being, which is also crucial for healing from the majority of traumas, addictions, and relationship issues you might experience in life. Learning to identify our patterns of conflict as well as understanding our own attachment styles and how they came to be is crucial in being able to change the way we respond when the going gets tough. We need this awareness and the tools of attachment based communication methods to help us change our patterns, provide safety in vulnerability, and learn to thrive off the emotional connection we have with our partner.”
When Audra is not helping people connect, she enjoys playing a variety of racquet sports but most often tennis. Her happy place is camping in the pines of the rim country of Arizona and on the beach in Rocky Point. She enjoys traveling alone with her best friend/husband of 20+ years to various scuba diving destinations, and with their five children they also enjoy snow skiing, boating, and experiencing other parts of the country together any chance the opportunity arises.
