An Integrated Approach to Mental Health

Johnny L. Guinn, M.S.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

IMPETUS for Proactive Counseling approaches mental health and psychotherapy from a person-centered, solution-focused, action-oriented perspective.

Impetus works with individuals from diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds assisting them to create and maintain fulfilling relationships while sustaining a balanced life.

Individuals receive encouragement and support in accomplishing their self-determined goals while cultivating empowering thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Joining individuals in their personal pursuit of happiness enables me to guide them in their noble quest.

Providing the expertise of a mental health therapist, IMPETUS for Proactive Counseling works with: couples, families, groups, adolescents, young adults, older adults, homeless individuals, victims of domestic and intimate partner violence, active duty service members and veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces, members of the gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, and intersex (GLBTQQI) community.
