Do you struggle with abusive behaviors? Empower Tehama can help.

 Young man

All couples quarrel or argue sometimes, but if you frequently find yourself regretting the way you're treating the people you love, you may need help. It's not an easy thing to talk about, and we commend you for visiting this page to look for a solution. Abusive behaviors are learned - and they can be unlearned - and replaced with healthy strategies for interacting with others and, internally, with yourself. Empower Tehama offers you a judgement-free opportunity to look beneath the surface and get real with yourself so you can move forward.

How you came to seek help doesn't really matter.

What matters is that you're here.

Keep going.
