RYAN HICKS, LPC, LMFT
An Independent Contractor With Foundations Family Counseling
Making changes is an intimidating process for all of us. Ryan joins you, wherever you are, in your quest for building the best life and the best relationships possible. He understands the therapeutic process, knows its power, and wants to guide you through it. By helping you to engage with the things that hurt and are causing problems, Ryan will work with you and the barriers and difficulties you are encountering, and help you move through life with a sense of strength, resilience, and connection to the ones you love.
Many of the problems in our life come from confusion, stress, disappointment, and hurt… which we avoid. The thing is, we experience even more pain in life when we deny these parts of ourselves. Ryan will help you engage with the emotions and thoughts that are at the core of what is blocking you from having the life that you want. He will help you build safe, secure relationships and help you heal the pain and hurt from your past so that you can live a healthy, fulfilling life.
In addition to traditional talk therapy, Ryan offers Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP). KAP is helpful in overcoming depression, anxiety, and trauma when talk therapy or medications have been unhelpful in the past. The psychedelic effects of the medication can allow us to bypass our natural barriers to shifting in our thoughts and emotions, to help make changes when other avenues have failed.
Ryan received his Master’s degree in Marriage & Family Therapy and Mental Health Counseling from Harding University. Beyond his graduate work, he also has Advanced Training in Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples. He also has advanced training Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy. Whether working with couples individuals, couples, or in Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy, he incorporates hypnotic techniques, Neuro-Linguistic Programming, and cognitive interventions based in Acceptance & Commitment Therapy to help clients live the lives that they want.
Outside of his therapeutic work, you can find Ryan reading, drinking too much coffee, playing music, skateboarding, and rock climbing.
