Diane Genco MA, LPC 
Executive Director/Owner/AZ Center for Change

I want to personally welcome you to our website. I hope you will find the information here helpful in your journey, whatever that may be.

I founded AZ Center for Change in 2006 because I wanted to create a place where clients can find the highest quality services while at the same time not breaking them financially. I am, and always have been, committed to providing services to people and communities in need.

These are the words and/or phrases that have inspired me over the years and are embedded in all we do at AZCFC: innovative, motivating, excellence, going the extra mile and good enough is not good enough.
