Professional statement

Mears Amundson is a Licensed Professional Counselor located in Surprise, AZ. Mears offers teenagers, young adults, and adults empathetic, trauma-informed mental health services. Many of Mears’ clients feel like they struggle to let go of past experiences, including past relationships. They feel overwhelmed by their emotions or intense feelings like shame, guilt, or fear. Other clients see their perfectionism getting in the way of feeling centered in their lives or living in the moment. Mears specializes in helping those with OCD, anxiety, panic disorder, and PTSD. 


Mears practices a therapy approach called Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART), which uses eye movements to quickly overcome harmful emotional reactions. She also practices Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy, another trauma-informed therapy approach that leverages eye movements as a way to encode painful memories into the past, allowing the individual to exist in the present without trauma symptoms. Therapy sessions with Mears may also include elements of mindfulness or somatic therapy, and she often educates clients on Polyvagal Theory and its impact on holistic well-being. 


Mears aims to support her clients as they rediscover joy and improve their relationships with themselves and others. She believes that all of her clients have unique strengths, and she shows clients how they can use these strengths to heal past traumas and to build healthy lives for themselves.
