Tyler Fyotek, tLMHC, 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. Building on this foundation, I specialize in offering clients diverse frameworks for making meaning from their experiences and constructing 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. 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.
I would like to extend a special welcome to students and faculty in higher education. As a former graduate student in two different disciplines and current adjunct faculty member at the University of Iowa, I am sensitive to the travails of Academia.
