Zen Institute
Zen Institute was a life-changing experience. I highly recommend this program for women who have experienced trauma, addictions, depression/anxiety, and/or self-esteem issues that have plagued them despite being successful, caring, compassionate, and competent. Zen provides tools for living large and creating a rich and purposeful life. They also teach you how to take care of yourself as much as you care for and give to others. In short, you will be empowered to live the life you've always wanted. One note of caution: Zen recommended Taste of Peace Arizona to me because I was visiting the program from out of state and wanted a sober environment to stay in as I worked through the Zen program. If a woman's only space is important to you, then you might want to consider another establishment. The co-owner is male (the other owner's spouse). He participates in daily meals, transporting clients, and weekend activities. Also, if you are uncomfortable with guns, I would also recommend looking elsewhere. There are guns in the house, and they were visible during my stay.

Aztec Counseling Services
Robert Valdez is one a very few people I trust and believe in as a counselor. He has called me out in sessions....and was right. I was part of a group when tragedy struck him personally...he went on with strength I have never witnessed before...and we also helped him.

Robert Valdez saved my life! After many years of alcohol and drug abuse relapse, his program worked for me. I am now 7 years sober. I wish I could contact him to say thank you.
Tips & Advices
Group counseling is when one or more counselors lead a group discussion, usually between five and 15 people. The group may focus on a shared experience or situation, and provide support and encouragement to the other attendees.
Each state defines its own requirements for what licenses and education are needed to be a counselor. It's common for counselors to have a bachelor's degree in psychology or a similar field, as well as a master's degree. After that, counselors should obtain their state license, and can move on to achieving other licenses like the:
  • National Certified Counselor (NCC) license
  • Certified Clinical Mental Health Counselor (CCMHC) license
  • Master Addictions Counselor (MAC) license
  • Forensic Health Evaluators (FHE) license
  • Global Career Development Facilitator (GCDF) license
  • Certified Family Therapist (CFT) license
This all depends on the patient's goals and circumstances. Some people are happy with their results after just a few sessions; others continue to meet with their counselors for years. There is no right or wrong length of time to go to counseling.
Anyone can benefit from counseling services. Counseling can help you gain greater insight into yourself; deal with feelings of sadness, worry, depression or anxiety; as well as work out relationship problems, trauma or addiction. Not every type of counseling service works with every person.
Yes. Except in very specific situations, a counselor will never repeat conversations from a counseling session. Situations where information from sessions might be shared include:
  • If the counselor believes the patient might harm him or herself, or someone else.
  • If the counselor wants to get a second opinion on the patient's treatment. If this is the case, the counselor should seek the patient's written permission before consulting another professional.
