Martin Koford, CMHC
Each of you has a life story and within that story are opportunities for growth, happiness, and fulfillment. Many of you are feeling emotional pain, frustrations, anger, fear, and hopelessness. You are not “broken” just likely realizing that the problem-solving tools that may have worked in the past may be dull or worn. Many times we are not sure what to do, or where to look for help. Likely, many have tried friends, family, partners, etc., and many times they have great advice relative to their worldview. Although this type of support is invaluable, there are times when a professional counselor is needed.
I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor and have the training and life experiences that enable me to help tailor a personal counseling experience for you. I provide treatment for individuals, couples, families, and groups. I have a Master of Science degree in Mental Health Counseling combined with years of experience. I work with anxiety, depression, addiction, marriage and family, and stress management issues. Additional training and certification include: Prime for Life Instructor and Prime Solutions for substance abuse and addiction treatment; completed Level 1 Training in Gottman Method Couples Therapy; domestic violence offender and survivor treatment. My undergraduate work focuses on business administration. I have many years of experience dealing with business system solutions. Managing a business can be frustrating and overwhelming at times and having additional support can offer objectivity and guidance toward solutions.
I enjoy the outdoors and participate in bicycle riding, dirt bike riding, and hiking in the beautiful desert we live in. Happiness is an action and to realize it one must participate in life, overcome obstacles, and take time to enjoy the small successes of each day. Most of us have struggles, that is a given, it is how we deal with our challenges that determine the outcome. Improving our weaknesses while building our strengths can help us realize our full potential and increase peace, joy, and happiness within our lives.
