Yoursphere authentically represents the voices, interests, talents and aspirations of young people. This global community is a platform that allows youth to create, connect and share their thoughts, ideas, social interactions, friendships and interests with the world through “spheres”. As a result, Yoursphere has become a social platform for youth brands including Skechers and Simon & Schuster titles.

Yoursphere for Parents helps bridge the digital literacy gap between parents and their children by providing how-to’s, tools and information that empower parents to help their families have a healthy and positive online experience.

Yoursphere Media’s education nonprofit, The Yoursphere Media Foundation and Coalition for Internet Safety Education and Reform orFCISER, engages community educators and industry leaders in empowering schools and families with healthy digital solutions. In its first initiative, FCISER established the “I Choose” campaign which works to end bullying by offering classroom kits to schools that challenge students to stop, think and remember that bullying is a choice and their choices make a difference.

Yoursphere Media, Inc. has expanded with its new division, Connectu Media. Connectu which provides white-labeled communications apps for companies, organizations, clubs, associations, shopping malls, teams and more.

Everett Bailey, PHD, LMFT

Dr. Bailey is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Mesa, Arizona and has over 20 years of experience in doing therapy with couples and individuals.  He has a PhD in Marriage and Family Therapy from Purdue University. He has received advanced training in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT) and in Gottman Couples Therapy.

All couples have conflicts. The difference between happy and unhappy couples is whether they have a healthy process of repair. Everett specializes in helping couples develop that repair process. The way many couples argue leaves them feeling frustrated, distant, and unfulfilled instead of feeling resolved and reconnected. Eventually they stop talking because it just turns into a fight. Approaching couples from an attachment perspective he helps couples experience the closeness and connection they desire.  The process entails identifying their negative patterns, stop blaming each other and learn how to find more effective ways to respond to each other.

Sex Addiction Therapist in Mesa and Gilbert, Arizona

Everett has worked a lot with individuals and couples dealing with sexual issues including pornography, affairs, online behaviors, and other problematic sexual behaviors.  For the last 13 years he has worked in a group practice that specializes in treating such behaviors.  He received training from Patrick Carnes and is a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist (CSAT).

In addition, he works with couples dealing with physical intimacy issues in their marriage which often creates a lot of frustration and distance.

Everett has a unique focus in working with men who are often skeptical about therapy. Often men will use work, alcohol, sex, pornography, money, gambling, or other compulsive/addictive behaviors to deal with feelings of emptiness or disconnection. These behaviors can cause serious problems in their marriage. He helps couples connect to each other instead of escaping to unhealthy behaviors that drive them further apart.
