Alternative Counseling Center
I have been associated with one of the therapists for 20 years. I have worked at two of the places she has worked. I was also a patient. I am simply amazed at how this center works with the at-risk population. Recently divorced and suffered some depression. I wanted my son to see some-one. Colvin Idol was suggested. My child did not believe in counseling and didn't trust any-one. I bribed him for one visit. He has really came a long way. He smiles and gets out of bed and expresses his feelings. He stands up for himself and is now living life instead of existing. He actually says I feel better when we leave and I get to enjoy him as he shares with me on the way home. I remember Colvin Idol from Public T.V. I Had no idea he was doing more for the people in our community. His wife Saroj Chand is remarkable as well. She is from India and very much an advocate for women, children and men. I have been recently aware of the Anger Management Group. I have known of several people ordered by the courts. For those that really want to change, they offered individual counseling. It seems through the grape-vine and personal experiences, the men feel they are really learning something, they never understood things as such as gesturing. They then begin to work on character defects, which we all have. Thanks! Alternative Counseling Center. You are indeed a refuge from many storms.Counseling is not for crazy insane folks, It is at it's best for those those of us who know we need a little help!TracyWe have two blessings in KnoxvilleThe Honorable Bill Swann and Alternative Counseling CenterIf the Judge sends you here remember he really wants to see you make it!
