Our evidenced based classes are specifically designed to provide the most safe and accountable intervention to end all levels of abusive behavior; not simply physical abuse. We challenge verbal abuse, mental abuse, emotional abuse, child abuse, and many other forms of abuse. We are not a mental health or substance abuse agency throwing together a quick anger management program. Helping people end abusive behavior is our specialty!

Our Nonviolent Alternatives program consists of Evidenced Based Classes to help break the patterns & habits of abusive relationships. There are important things to consider in choosing appropriate, effective and accountable counseling services to help end abusive behavior. Click here to read about how our program is different and better than other options. It includes an explanation of our philosophy, approach, and strategy.
We are much different, better, and safer than anger management counseling programs. As a matter of fact, as an intervention for abusive behavior, typical anger management counseling, mental health counseling, or couples counseling can easily make the problem worse and may escalate the violence or abusive behavior. Couples counseling can be very productive and helpful. But definitely not until abuse in the relationship stops.
