Meet Kris Godinez, Licensed Personal Counselor
Your no-nonsense, find-your-happiness counselor.
I am able to create a quick bond with clients because I have experienced what you have experienced. I lived through a codependent relationship with a narcissist, which was the catalyst for entering the counseling field. Now, my goal is to assist as many people as possible by helping them escape such damaging relationships. You do not have to remain in pain or fear; there is hope!
You, like most of my clients, are in an abusive relationship. Whether that abuse takes form emotionally, verbally, sexually, or physically, you want to get out. You need to get out. And you need help to achieve that reality.
You Don't Need to Be in Pain Anymore
No matter where you are in your journey, I will guide you in finding effective solutions to the challenges you are facing. My experience encompasses work with individuals, couples, and families.
I Give You Your Aha Moment!
I founded Aha! Counseling AZ because, like you, I’m a survivor.
I’ve been where you are. And I know how hard it can be to seek help and admit that you’re in a place that you can’t escape on your own. My personal mission is to get as many people as possible out of abusive relationships and on to a place where they can experience their true joy.
My Approach & Values
I am out to empower clients to create the life they imagine, whether that is through individual, couples, or group therapy. My approach is no-nonsense, and I shine the light on the dark corners of life you’ve been avoiding. I promise that you will always feel heard, and we will create a partnership that empowers you to seek
