Recovery is… Change.

Recovery is different for everyone, but usually requires change from within. Change can be scary, which is exactly what we are here for; to help you learn, grow, and change into the best version of yourself you can be. Recovery is a personal journey of finding solutions, re-discovering your strengths, and freeing yourself from the cycles you have been stuck in. Recovery often involves re-connecting with who you are. Learning to accept yourself for who you are. Change is easiest when you have accepted yourself. The good, the bad, and everything in between. Change takes courage. Self-acceptance takes courage…but it’s worth it. For many, the biggest obstacle to beginning this transformation process is summoning the courage to step out of your comfort zone.

“Vulnerability is not winning or losing. It’s having the courage to show up when you can’t control the outcome.”
– Brene Brown

Mini Bio

Manny is a New Mexican Native. He went to the University of New Mexico to earn his Bachelors’ in psychology. He then proceeded to earn his Masters’ in Marriage and Family Therapy at New Mexico State University. Manny’s approach to therapy is holistic and systemic. As a Marriage and Family Therapist, he is trained to address both individuals and family systems, big or small.

He believes that each client has their own unique set of strengths that can be honed to help them solve their problems and overcome obstacles. He has a great sense of humor and likes to use creativity in the therapy room to help clients grow.

Manny is a fan of superheroes, villains, and storytelling. He believes that there is power in a person’s story, and how we tell it can have a powerful impact on self-perception. He believes we are the protagonists of our own story, the superheroes of our own lives. But even the best heroes need help from others, and no one is born to fight their battles alone.
