Bob is incredible!! His methods have dramatically improved my quality of life. I've seen several therapists and he's easily the very best. Besides working wonders in his office--he has taught me how to do some hypno work for myself--on my own. Stellar dude. I recommend him to anyone.
Ray is amazing and full of intense knowledge. He connects to what you say and what you are feeling. As a lesbian couple, my wife and I were looking for a woman therapist but feel incredibly lucky to have found Ray instead! I instantly felt welcomed and accepted. From the first session, I have left our sessions uplifted, hopeful, inspired and more connected to my wife than ever. I couldn't ask for someone more perfect to help guide me in my life. I appreciate you Ray!
I would like to share a experience I had over the Thanksgiving holiday.. I did a Stop Smoking Hynotherapy session with Susan back in September of 2015... I have no family in AZ that smoke but I do have a son and daughter in law and their father who smoke ALOT in Colorado. They all came to visit me for the week over the holiday... I was concerned about how this would play out... after spending it with them I wanted to share how EXCITED and HAPPY I was that I didn't smoke once, not even one puff... SUSAN did a remarkable job at helping me with this and I would HIGHLY recommend her as a therapist to ANY one who not only wanted to quit smoking, but any addiction.. WHAT a wonderful feeling it is to truly NOT want to smoke.. THANK YOU SUSAN WEBBER!!! You have saved my life....
She is a a great therapist.
I was looking for a compassionate person for my son to speak with, Nichole was everything I was looking for in a therapist for my son.
I was really looking forward to going away to school but my freshman year turned out to be a disaster. I’m kind of an introvert but that never stopped me from making friends before. The school was so huge and there were so many people in my dorm that it kind of freaked me out. A lot of them, including my suite mates, were into partying, which I’m not, so the constant noise really got to me. I was too ashamed to tell my parents how unhappy I was, so I just tried to do my best. But I got so anxious and depressed I went to see the school counselor. She was nice and sympathetic but not really that helpful. I thought I was going to lose it, so I finally called home and told them what was going on. My dad is from the city where the school is so he asked some of his friends there about therapists who were good at working with people my age. I ended up with a list of people to try and saw three of them before choosing Ilisa. I’m not sure if her having kids in college made a difference but she seemed to understand exactly what I was going through, which was a big relief. She also helped me deal with the incredible stress and depression I was feeling with EMDR. It’s a pretty weird process, but it works! She also helped me understand the reasons why I was having such a hard time and helped me come up with strategies for dealing with them. I’m in my sophomore year now and pretty much back to my old self. I’m glad Ilisa’s there and will go back to her if I start to feel anxious or depressed again.
When I first came to see Michelle, I was six months into a recovery program for codependency and six months out of a two-year relationship with a married man. Every day I was battling mental and emotional demons that were threatening to consume me at any point in time. Emotionally I dont think I could have handled any more pain, any more tears than I was already living. Mentally, I was tearing myself down every chance I got, beating and hating on myself more than any person deserves. To say I had hit an all-time low would be an understatement. I was at the bottom. Death would have been a welcome relief. I learned about Michelle from my sponsor in recovery. I was already seeing small changes in my self-awareness and self-love by working the recovery program, but was still in so much unbearable pain that I jumped at the opportunity to further my healing. Having been to see counselors and therapists since I was in my early teens, I was familiar with how the process worked and even a little skeptical. But the appeal of this kind of recovery was that it would emotionally free me from my past. Making the appointment to see Michelle was the most hope I had felt in years. During my first meeting, Michelle asked me some general questions about where my anxiety stemmed from and what my biggest problem areas were, and along with some deeper probing questions that brought my emotions to the surface. We decided focused on my fear of abandonment and need to be picked by the people I love the most from my nuclear family to my romantic relationships. Michelle guided me through my toughest relationships, using her intuition to advance the tapping and healing process, and lower my emotional attachment from a 10 (what felt like was 100) to a 1. I couldnt believe it! I felt an openness in my heart space Id never experienced before, a freedom that hadnt existed. I could breathe. I could feel. I wasnt scared anymore. It was as if the tares were being sewn back together, one at a time. Granted, I had a lot of them. But that was ok, because now there was a solution, not just a problem anymore. I have had the opportunity not only to experience the healing Michelles EFT practice provides, but to witness the freedom, strength and hope it brings to some of my most dear loved ones. I am incredibly thankful for her and the rapid healing EFT has brought to my life.
I was having a very stressful time of it with a close family member, and Jivana knew exactly what the best course of action was for me in that situation. Jivana really ‘saved the day’ for me! I was so grateful to be able to work with her when I did. I’d highly recommend her as a healer, therapist and counselor. She is unusually insightful, sensitive and amazingly wise!
I really enjoyed my experience with Rosa Ruales. She's a great therapist and I look forward on coming back for more sessions. Andrea Machi
Dr Dorothy is a warm, caring, supportive and responsive therapist. She knows how to uncover the real cause of the emotional pain (not just talking about the symptoms). She focuses on resolving the issues at the root cause. It was easier than I imagined and nothing like the revolving door stories I hear from others. AND no medication required. I highly recommend her. KA
Kate provides a safe place to open up completely. This is essential in doing inner work. She is present and shares her intuitiveness easily. I highly recommend Kate as a Therapist as I know she does her own inner work!
I have found my training and interactions with Linda have really helped me to learn to stay-in-the-moment and to be a much more caring spouse. My listening skills have changed for the better and I am able to stay calm even when things get a little chaotic around me. She has helped me to see and understand the situations which can cause me to become overwhelmed and trigger some of the negative emotions I have experienced in the past when interacting with my spouse. I would highly recommend her as a marriage and couples therapist. Arthur P.
Margit is very knowledgeable in this field . I went in for lower back pain that I have had for a long time , and after 4 sessions with her I have no more pain. She is very friendly , easy to talk to , and a wonderful massage therapist. I will continue my visits with her.
Maria is empathetic and has a very personal therapy style. I have seen several other therapists in my life, and no one helped me as much as Maria has! She is genuinely caring, knowledgeable, and offers concrete suggestions for coping and change.
As a therapeutic client of Steven Gans I cannot hope in the space allowed here to adequately describe the life-transforming experience it has been for me to know and work with Steve. Steve once described his unique style as integrative (though he has also used the terms Socratic, and textual). But it requires something like a Latour litany to account for just some of the prime integers: the Greek Classics, Freud, Levinas, Derrida, Lacan, existential-phenomenology, and R. D. Laing and the Philadelphia Association, London, where I first had the privilege of meeting Steve. Steve once said to me that people get the therapist they deserve, in which case I must have been extraordinarily deserving as would anyone else fortunate enough to have the opportunity to avail themselves of Steves inimitable services.
Ms. Paukova has worked with me as a musician for the past three years. She has always been professional and has written as well as arranged the music for our events. She is currently working with me and hopefully will continue to do so in the future. I have also watched her work with her autistic son using music to teach him skills to help him prepare for his future. I feel she is very competent and would be an asset for anyone who would employ her.
I had the privilege of working with Khara 6 years ago in a therapeutic setting. Due to 9 years of consistency in the field, she continually shows loyalty to her work environment and her clients. When providing therapy with clients, Khara carries a fine balance of compassion and intellectual challenge. This fine balance with the client's involvement promotes growth and effective ways to manage challenges. Khara is very insightful and provides great guidance. Khara is extremely professional and prioritizes the needs of her clients and for this reason I highly recommend Khara as a therapist.
I am a recent graduate of A.S.M.T. and provide relaxing massage to assist in wellness and healing. I am very professional, and I have excellent customer service skills.

If you are looking for "change," the time is now! I want to help you achieve your goals and the quality of life you are looking for. I believe that a positive, supportive, non-judgmental approach are important elements to the growing and/or healing process you will experience on this journey toward achieving your goals. I enjoy working with individuals, couples, children, and teens who are in need of help with issues, such as relationship problems, transitional or life cycle issues, behavioral, depression/anxiety, trauma, loss/grief, and drugs/alcohol.
Sometimes, life just doesnt go the way we want. Too often, we find ourselves stuck in a bad place, leaving us hurt, lonely, angry or depressed, or just plain out of control. Why is it that we do the things we dont want to do, and we dont do the things that we know are good for us? I provide a confidential, non-judgmental place to re-engineer your life. I will strive to help you experience growth from the pain of life, and empower you to move forward, better able to face the inevitable problems that come your way. I look forward to the opportunity to partner with you, to help you clarify what you want from your life and how to go about getting it. My primary area of interest is in working with couples, although I do work with individuals also. This includes pre-marital counseling, communication difficulties, recovery from affairs and sex addiction, and parenting together after divorce. In 2011, I completed a certification in Sex Addiction Therapy (CSAT®) through Patrick Carnes. The CSAT® program is fast becoming the industry's standard certification for all therapists working with individuals who suffer from addictive and compulsive sexual behaviors. I received a master of arts degree in Clinical Psychology from Azusa Pacific University, and I am a marriage and family therapist registered intern (IMF#64851), under the supervision of Curtis Miller, Psy.D., D. Min, MFT#31636. I am trained to use the PREPARE/ENRICH inventories, a comprehensive couple assessment tool for pre-marital counseling. I handle couples and betrayal.
