Nathan Interial, the founder of Journey of Hope and Courage, LLC. Nathan is a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC) in the state of New Mexico. My degree is M.S. in Professional Counseling from Liberty University, Lynchburg, Virginia, and I am certified in RTM Protocol (Reconsolidation of Traumatic Memories). The therapeutic relationship is one that requires trust and comfort which can be difficult when thinking about reaching out for help. I want to offer to you a 15-minute meet and greet. My goal is to make counseling a comfortable and open environment to help you to achieve your therapeutic goals. My approach to therapy is to create understanding and honor a client’s experiences by creating an understanding of your struggles in an authentic, and genuine approach to your treatment. Reaching out for help is something that should not be taken for granted. The amount of courage it took for you and others like you to take the first step towards healing. We will work to explore, process, and manage the areas in your life that are weighing you down. The privilege of being in a helping career is you are able to witness and help individuals, couples, and families heal from anxiety, depression, self-worth, trauma, addiction, and life transitions. While everyone should be able to be treated with dignity, respect, and acceptance. As everyone has worth and matters to someone however it can be difficult to see past what is in front of us, to recognize it. If you feel this is you please feel free to reach out.
To help you get to know me a little more. When I am not in the office, I enjoy hanging out with my wife and two kids. You could also find me on a bike ride because there is something calming, and relaxing when I am out on the trails. This is a time to clear my mind and shed the weight of the week. I also truly love to cook and create a dish for my family. While they can be my hardest critics about the food choices put in front of them. I do enjoy the challenge and the reward when dinner is enjoyed by all.
