About Braveability Counseling

John Nerswick, Ph.D.

Life-giving perspectives and practices for adults, children, couples, and families

The family is core to every society, and Braveability is working in Northern Kentucky to keep families intact. Its founder, Dr. John Nerswick, uses time-tested concepts of marriage and family therapy to assist individuals, couples, and families to stabilize what is working and stop what is not. John blends principles of systems theory, interpersonal communication, and human development to answer questions and offer new understanding, with emphasis on devoted relationships. John has been bringing services to families in their home for over 25 years. Last year, Braveability established its first brick and mortar office in Crescent Springs, Kentucky and will continue offering Kentucky residents the benefit of meeting in the family home.

John invites couples and family members to participate in therapy, or will work with individuals to achieve change. Clients will gain new understanding of how to begin working to achieve difference and to interact more effectively and with greater control and kindness toward others. Braveability uses as few session as necessary to guide individuals, couples, and families to resolve issues they have been unable to settle on their own. Spouses and parents leave each session with personalized practices and techniques they can begin using, especially in difficult interactions, including those involving children and adolescents.

Braveability’s Approach

Braveability’s approach to difficulty, within and between individuals, involves emphasis on psychological transformation, an essential need and possibility for each person, which many, at first, do not realize. It is not through external means (economic, social, or technological), but through inner development that people discover the difference they need to address their core issues and concerns. Each person must accept responsibility for his or her inner development, without which attempts at change inevitably lead to loss—mine and my neighbor’s. As a person continues to pursue inner transformation, involvement with others becomes a primary context for awareness and growth. Fortunately, true change is a collaborative effort, involving harmony between individuals.

What to Expect

Psychological transformation is achievable through your effort to practice the things Braveability offers and your willingness to question your attempts and continue practicing and questioning. The things you read on this website will not be wrong; however, without questioning and attempting to practice them, they remain only half-truths and cannot bring lasting difference. Braveability’s commitment to psychological transformation reveals a person’s spiritual nature, defined as one’s growing awareness of inner sacredness and acceptance that everything good is received.
