Diane Genco MA, LPC,
Executive Director/Owner

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with 30 years of experience in the counseling field.  I am the founder of AZ Center for Change. I oversee all clinical and operational aspects of the agency. My specialties include in treating sexual abuse and trauma, problem sexual behavior and mood related problems. I am trained in EMDR, a trauma reduction model, Cognitive Processing Therapy and several other evidenced based treatment modalities. 

I have been on faculty at Arizona State University, and the University of Phoenix teaching counseling and social work students.  I have held several Clinical Supervisor and Administrative positions in several behavioral health agencies in the Phoenix area.

I am a Clinical Member of ATSA, the association for the Treatment of Sexual Abusers and I have extensive training in treating problem sexual behavior including compulsive sexual problems and sexual offending for adults and adolescents.  I conduct psychosexual risk assessments as well as providing treatment for these problems.

I provide Dialectical Behavior Therapy at the agency and I have found this to be highly effective for other kinds of mood regulation problems as well.

I have a deep passion for the work we do at AZCFC and I look forward to helping you on your journey as well.
