Paula Lupo, MA LPC, Owner

I have worked in the Mental Health field for 30 years serving children and families in Mohave County. Community Mental Health has been my passion and I have worked in the community to develop awareness and community responses to mental health issues for many years. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with a master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. I have many hours of education in a variety of counseling modalities and issues. I love providing training to community groups and other professionals on Trauma Informed Care, ACES (Adverse Childhood Events) and Acceptance and Commitment work.

Having my own practice has given me the opportunity to utilize my work and life experience to help people thrive. I believe I provide a safe space for people to share their stories and to understand their struggles, challenges, and pain. Healing begins when we develop compassion for ourselves, learn acceptance and develop new skills to navigate our lives. I believe people are resilient and it is never too late to go from surviving to thriving.


Alyssa Horton, MS LAC

I am a Havasu native with a master's in Professional Counseling and I am a Licensed Associate Counselor. My background is in teaching and I love to apply my knowledge of development and education with my adolescent clients. I enjoy coaching my clients about mental health and how they can overcome their battles. Empathy and validation are key components in the foundation of my relationship with clients. From there, we work together to tailor services to your needs and goals in counseling.  

I chose to pursue therapy as a career because I believe mental health is essential for a healthy life - physically, relationally and socially, and financially - and that it applies to all of us at some point in our lives. I continue to be inspired by the strength and resiliency of every person who comes into my office and am grateful for the work I get to do.

LEARN  TO THRIVE LIFE is a trauma informed care provider.  This agency was developed to provide a safe space for people to heal.   We don't ask,  "What's wrong with you?" We ask "What happened to you?" 

We know that 2 out of every 3 people have experienced a traumatic event as a child or an adult.  These experiences impact your relationships, your health, your spirit and your life.  Counseling helps people identify, understand and overcome barriers.   You are resilient and you can shift from surviving what has happened in your life to thriving - recognizing your strengths, healing and learning new life skills.
