Dr. Adrian Fletcher is a Licensed Psychologist in Scottsdale, Arizona. She has over 15 years of experience working in various roles within the mental health field. She is a private pay practitioner offering individual and couples therapy. She specializes in helping others deal with stress, anxiety, depression, trauma and relationship problems. Her experience has been in treating clients in hospital, community, medical and private practice settings. Dr. Fletcher also has experience in treating Veterans as a former psychology intern for the United States Department of Veterans Affairs. Dr. Fletcher is an Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Certified therapist and is currently working towards becoming an EMDR Approved Consultant so that she will be able to offer consultation to other mental health therapists seeking EMDR certification. Additionally, Dr. Fletcher's practice is an approved postdoctoral training site with the Arizona Psychology Training Consortium and is currently hosting Dr. Jennifer Holzapfel as postdoctoral psychology resident under her supervision.
Throughout her varied clinical training, Dr. Holzapfel has developed her abilities to flexibly integrate evidence-based and culturally-responsive psychotherapy approaches with a wide-range of presenting concerns and clients. From her years of working in university and government-funded educational settings, she is especially adept at and enjoys working with adolescents and young adults facing life transitions and self-identity questions. She has also worked in community mental health agencies and integrative medical and hospital settings, where she primarily focused on helping clients manage symptoms of depression and anxiety, interpersonal concerns, grief and loss, and mental health symptoms related to physical health conditions (e.g., cancer, pregnancy, heart failure). One area she especially enjoys is working with new parents, chiefly moms, on perinatal concerns.
Dr. Holzapfel has received advanced training in perinatal mood and anxiety disorders (PMADs) through Postpartum Support International, and in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) from ACT-founder Dr. Steven Hayes. Dr. Holzapfel is working with Dr. Fletcher on integrating trauma-informed interventions into her work, such as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). Dr. Holzapfel is an active member of Division 17 in the American Psychological Association (APA).
Dr. Holzapfel views the therapy room as a safe, collaborative, and nonjudgmental space to have honest and brave conversations. While these conversations can be difficult at times, they challenge us to trust our internal sense of self, use our strengths, and act on our chosen values to help open new possibilities and meaning for our life stories. Dr. Holzapfel is strongly dedicated to the principles of diversity, inclusion, and social justice, and therefore is intentional about providing therapy within an understanding of the client’s worldview and intersecting identities. She views clients as co-creators of the therapeutic process in which clients are welcome to bring their authentic selves and move toward the growth they want. Dr. Jenny Holzapfel is completing her postdoctoral psychology residency under the supervision of Dr. Adrian Fletcher. Dr. Holzapfel earned both her Master of Counseling and Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from Arizona State University.
Dr. Holzapfel has been involved in athletics from a young age and was an NCAA student-athlete in college (cross country and track & field). The sunny Arizona climate has allowed her to try out triathlon (Yes, she has survived swimming in Tempe Town Lake!). She and her husband especially enjoy going for family bike rides with their son riding in the bike trailer. Aside from sports, Dr. Holzapfel likes to read and spend time with friends. As Dr. Holzapfel’s last name is difficult to pronounce, most clients refer to her as “Dr. H” or “Dr. Jenny”, but if you want to give it a try, it’s pronounced like “Holtz-app-fell”, and means “wood apple” in German).
"I believe the answers are within you and that I am here to hold the space for you to confidently make your way on the path(s) that you decide are best for you"-Dr. Fletch
