Vaughn Baker is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and his goal is to help you establish awareness and connection to be fully present in this lifetime.
Vaughn will help you integrate your mind, body, and spirit through all of life’s situations. Through his empathic and caring approach, he invites you to begin a dialogue with him as your therapist and more importantly, to create a conversation with yourself. Vaughn works to facilitate care and trust, which allows you to address your thoughts, challenge your feelings, share your emotions, explore the interpretations of external perceptions, and channel your beliefs to begin your healing process. Vaughn’s philosophy starts with establishing a warm and safe environment moving into resolving issues whether long-term or situational. He lays the foundation for personal reflection and the ability to be honest with yourself.
As a therapist, Vaughn works from a cognitive behavioral systems approach. However, he thoroughly understands that no theory can address the many issues which plague people’s lives, which can include aspects of ethnicity, culture, sexuality, gender, race, age, social-economy, or any of the many other differences people have. With this in mind, Vaughn will work with you to establish the method which best suits your specific needs. Everyone experiences moments in their lives when help or support is needed, whether it’s facing issues dealing with families, intimate relationships, individual personal problems, or maybe it’s something of a spiritual nature. No matter what it might be Vaughn is here to support you in your specific counseling demands while working with you on your terms to ensure the love and support you need. Vaughn is a military veteran who enjoys serving people, helping families and counseling individuals.
