Discount Counseling and DUI School, MSMFCT, MFT-Int, CADC, QMHP, Marriage & Family Therapist Intern in Fernley
I believe CHANGE is where I excel. That we, as human-beings, hold abilities to CHANGE our lives; regardless what happened or what you've done or where you are now on the change- paradigm. Pre-Contemplation, contemplation, action, maintenance, or relapse; help is available; people make choices; not always effective, therefore we can CHANGE the outcomes. Lives are redirectable; at any age or circumstance. Take your confused/chaotic daily life and untangle wicked webs of deceit, pain/trauma/addictive-behaviors and rid the ineffectiveness from your life. WE CAN DO THIS! Any Change-Any Age. Let me Help You.
My specialty - CHANGE the CBT/REBT, Brief and Solution Focused Therapy; Mindfulness and Motivational Interviewing. Strength Based and Structural Therapies. I know struggle and I know the pride in achieving a better life. I KNOW change is attainable; I want YOU TO KNOW - CHANGE IS POSSIBLE at 7 or 70!
