I went into Raymond at Inner Power Hypnotherapy out of pure desperation and in a last ditch effort because everything else had failed. I was in an unhealthy marriage, I had gained ALOT of weight, had developed low self esteem, suffered sever pain from fibromyalgia and had lost myself and who I was because of all these thing. I went to the first visit just wanting to lose some weight to look better for my husband and not hurt so much. Well let me tell you I may have went thinking I knew what I wanted but I left with what I needed. I left feeling so empowered!. (He even helped me address and let go of some issued I had been carrying around since I was little that had been effecting me my whole life) I have taken control of my life back and am starting to find me again. 6 months ago I could not even walk 400 steps a day the pain was so severe from the fibromyalgia and today I am pain free. Before seeing Ray if you had asked me what I like to do I would have just stared at you and said "I don't know" because I had lost me and I really didn't know. Today I can name you half a dozen thing I have discovered I love to do. Ray is not just a wonderful hypnotherapist you can trust but a great therapist, confidant, life coach and mentor. I highly recommend Ray at Inner Power Hypnotherapy for what ever your needs are.

Remarkably insightful, in only three visits (so far) he's tremendously broadened my self-awareness of my deep seeded issues. I'm confident this will lead to the repair of trust issues in my marriage and bolster the relationship that I've always had with my wife.

I'm only leaving 4 stars instead of five because we did hire Rosa but have only seen her once for couples therapy. Her office deserves 5 stars because it is centrally located, quaint and very welcoming. She is friendly and welcomed us with open arms. She was easy to talk to and we look forward to more sessions with her. Hopefully with a little work from the both of us and professional guidance from her we'll get our relationship back on track. Another plus is that she has a doctorate degree and specializes in family and couples therapy and seems very knowledgeable of the whole process. She contacted me promptly and made the whole process of paperwork and appointment setting very easy. Overall, 5 stars so far!

I was referred to Dana by a friend who had a great experience. As a man, it's always hard to open up emotionally. I was afraid if we choose a female coach, that she would take my wife's side and make it all my fault. Dana made us both feel really comfortable and she didn't "take sides". She worked with both of us to help us each clear our blocks so that we could be be fully present in our relationship. She is very easy talk and NOTHING like I expected in my head. I am so thankful my friend pushed me, to make me and my marriage better!

Dana was personable and very thorough in her approach. She gave us practical and easy to follow strategies to use which kept my husband and I accountable. It's been 6 months and we're still using the tips she taught us. Before working with Dana, my marriage was at a dead end, but now we are thriving.

I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease about three years ago. It came as quite a shock. I’d never really been sick before, but now I felt as if I’d been given a death sentence. At first, I tried to remain positive. I joined a “Parkie” support group and my wife joined one for caregivers. Most of the people in my group were a lot worse off than I was. You’d think this would make me feel better but it didn’t at all. I started getting more and more depressed. My doctor and the people at the Parkinson’s Center were very supportive but they didn’t offer counseling services. I was also scared about taking an anti-depressant that might interact with my Parkinson’s medication. Finally, I reached a point where I was so depressed my wife got scared I might kill myself. She insisted I find a therapist and asked around until someone told her about Ilisa. My wife went with me to the first appointment. I got a good feeling about Ilisa during that meeting. After that, I continued on my own. Therapy with Ilisa has been extremely helpful. We’ve been working on a few different things. First, she showed me how to use mindfulness techniques that enabled me to stop obsessing about my symptoms or spend hours on the Internet reading about Parkinson’s. She also helped me get some perspective. I still have some good years ahead of me. I have a great marriage and a loving family. I’ve made new friends through the Parkinson’s community. And there’s always a chance of a cure. I think what’s helped most though is the warmth and understanding she always brings to our sessions. It’s such a relief to be able to say things that other people might find shocking. Just being able to express my rage and fear in a safe environment has been a great relief. I still have Parkinson’s, but I know now it doesn’t have to ruin the rest of my life. I thank Ilisa for that.

After being married for more than 20 years, I figured my wife and I shouldn’t need anyone’s help to work out our problems. But our fights kept getting worse and worse until I was so upset and angry all the time that I insisted we enter therapy. We both did some research and ended up agreeing (for once) that we wanted to schedule a session with Ilisa. At first, we were uncomfortable discussing the intimate details of our marriage. But Ilisa was so warm and understanding, she soon put us at ease. I worried that she might take sides, but she was completely even-handed. She gave us tools that we could use whenever we started to get upset with each other. They worked beautifully and we both started feeling a lot better and more hopeful. Looking back, I don’t think our marriage would have survived without her.

The life counseling that I have received with Ilisa thus far has been a good experience where I am in a safe and supportive environment to discuss and work on any and all problems. She is knowledgeable on different ways to help you through the anxieties of life and finds the best course of action based upon your needs.

I highly recommend Lynne Skye. She officiated my wedding. There were several special circumstances. Every step of the way she was understanding, and extremely accommodating. On her profile she mentions that she loves love ( I think that's how she put it, I can't remember now), this becomes very clear when you work with her. She bent over backwards to make sure that the most important day of our life came together, and that the most important part of that day was extraordinarily beautiful. I know that she also does couple's counseling, and if my husband and I need that in the future she will be the person we call. She is just an amazing person, who is great at what she does.

We used Love-aversary for marriage counseling. This was a cheapest, most affordable and honestly the best style of counseling I've ever seen and had. Not only was it very interactive, the style of perfect, getting me and loved one to interact and mingle in different ways. They listened to both sides unbiased, was open-minded, gave feedback and never felt like either one of us were wrong for feeling a certain way. Each session was at least an hour long and it was always based on our schedule. Best of all, they always came to our place to make it as comfortable and convenient as possible. Highly recommended to anyone that needs martial counseling.

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.

Linda does a fantastic job. Has really helped with my relationship - particularly anxiety and depression. She has taught me coping skills to help me deal with daily issues as they arise. She is caring, responsive and one of the few counselors who actually listens to me and structures my treatment plan to my specific needs. Of everyone I've been to (still with Linda) she'd be one of the few I would ever go back to.

Verified review

After dating for many years we got married. And never having lived together, we both knew we were in for a significant change in our daily lives. This being the second marriage for both of us, we wanted to get our marriage started off on the right foot. A friend recommended that we meet with Jeff Small, who at the time was involved in a program designed to help married couples to reconnect. We very much enjoyed the program, and my husband especially felt comfortable sharing and opening up to Jeff. Jeff has a way of putting you at ease and making you feel it is safe to share. He has great ideas to break bad habits and stop negative self talk. In addition, we wanted to walk hand-in-hand with one another and strengthen our faith in God. Jeff’s background gave him the tools to incorporate that into our discussions. We believe, that as a married couple, we should be each other's safe haven for sharing our biggest fears, excitement, insecurities and joys without being judged by one another. Jeff facilitated this new way of loving and communicating. We highly recommend him for a relationship check-up or overhaul, you will not be disappointed!

We hired Jeffrey Small to officiate our small New Year's Eve wedding. We were from out-of-town so hiring an officiant, whom we didn't know, was important to us and we wanted the right fit. Jeffrey Small did an amazing job! He communicated well prior to the wedding, was on time to our event, and performed a very lovely ceremony. We were very happy!

Jason was very flexible and easy to work with regarding the content of our ceremony. He's exactly the type of person you WANT to officiate for you; he lives a life that epitomizes placing value and importance on marriage and is genuinely estatic to witness the joy in others. He kept the ceremony light and joyful. Thanks, Jason!!! You were wonderful and I couldn't have imagined a better officiant!

I used Bob for marriage counseling and found him to be very insightful, helpful and easy to open up to. He listens well, pointed out some adjustments for me to think about and try, and we were able to solve some minor problems, past and present, that helped immensely in saving my marriage, and making me a better person. I highly recommend Bob Alan for single and marriage counseling. Diana

Cheryl Wheeler is an amazing Life Coach and spiritual counseler. In the years that I worked with her she has been an amazing wholehearted, coach/counselor. Always going up and beyond to help me feel grounded. Her ability to speak with gentleness and compassion has helped me in healing areas of my life I had not found peace in. Her approach is not conventional. Rather it is connective and peaceful. Her heart is filled with intentions of helping one feel safe, grounded and at peace no matter what circumstance you are going through. I would highly recommend Cheryl and be at peace that she will guide you through your journey with results.

Cheryl Wheeler by far is the most popular and an excellent awesome person I have ever known. There was a time in my life where I was devastated with the loss of my husband; I started phone sessions with her once a week to deal with my grieving. Cheryl gave me her total uninterrupted attention and her ear to listen for what I had to say. She was great." Anonymous

Sometimes, life just doesn’t 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 don’t want to do, and we don’t 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.
