Tyler Fyotek, Psychotherapist

Credentials: LMHC, NCC. M.A. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Adler University; Ph.D. in Classics (ancient literature and philosophy) from the University of Iowa.

Many enter therapy seeking relief from some stress, grief, or pain that has become unbearable. This is only the beginning; I can help you accomplish something more profound than that. With a view to holistic well-being, you can improve your embodied health, self-awareness, sense of purpose and belonging with others, and relationship with your inner self and a higher power.

My therapeutic approach is highly flexible and attuned to the needs and preferences of individual clients with a strong emphasis on empathy, warmth, and authenticity in the therapeutic relationship. To address urgent symptoms of anxiety, depression, trauma, and drug/alcohol dependence, I offer psychoeducation regarding mindfulness, biofeedback, and methods for altering oppressive behavioral and thinking patterns.

Building on this foundation, I specialize in offering clients diverse frameworks for making meaning from their experiences and constructing more empowering (because they are more accurate) self-narratives by drawing on ancient wisdom traditions and modern research in psychology, cognitive science, and the social sciences. My approach is a unique synthesis of Philosophical & Narrative Therapy, which is informed by my background as a scholar of Classics, the oldest multidisciplinary field of study in Europe and the United States. You can access some free psychoeducation on my blog and podcast: Thinking Tools.
