The main thing I learned is that marriage is what you make it! The big word here is “create”. The other word that stood out to me was ‘dies’. Stop creating the relationship/connection and it will die. My husband and I are taking this course together. He has discovered that he needs to be more communicative. This is a win for me/us because it’s been very difficult with just myself pushing the communication portion of the relationship! This is exciting because there is more creation that can go on; therefore, more hope of longevity of our relationship! Another thing that I really liked was being open to the fact that we experience different realities – communicating and taking action is a cure to bridge this gap of misunderstandings. I have also had some realizations how I contribute to some of the fallout!

When I started working with Shannon I was struggling with deep unhappiness and uncertainty about my life, as well as my relationships with the people in my life. I was skeptical of talking to anyone because of several prior bad experiences with counselors and psychiatrists. But I called anyway out of desperation and I'm very glad in retrospect that I did. Shannon helped me consciously identify things that are important to me and things I wanted to change. With Shannon I learned to proactively become aware of and eliminate negative, harmful, or just plain not useful patterns of thinking and instead treat myself using positive reinforcement. These changes seems small and simple but their impact is deep. I also benefited from her wise perspective on managing relationships with others. By using what I've worked on with Shannon, I feel more clear, capable, reflective, and self-aware. This in turn has helped me focus, enjoy my work, and improve how I view my relationships with my family and coworkers. I'm all around much happier and proud of myself. In working with Shannon, I was impressed by her kindness, her breadth of understanding, her proactive approach, and her focus on ensuring her clients improve in a quantifiable, verifiable way. I would and do recommend her to anyone looking for guidance through rough times, especially if you're looking for quick and concrete practices to implement to improve your life immediately.

Lisa helped me uncover and take action on my life vision. Every area of my life has seen big changes in alignment with that vision. I’ve strengthened my marriage, stepped away from a 25 year career in Human Resources, built a company I’m passionate about and found balance in my life. Lisa’s approach is no nonsense and honest. She has an amazing way of keeping you focused on your dream, one step at a time … next thing you know you’re living it.

He was wonderful! He is very professional and seeks to help the couple all along the planning process through to your wedding day. What's stands out is how much he truly cares about you. You can tell he does this with the intention of helping couples. He also did premarital counseling for us and we truly made a friend in him. He is a real friend who is there whenever you need him most. When a mistake was made on our marriage license (not his mistake), he was there to help work it out for us without hesitation. Overall, he was knowledgeable, helpful, and truly cares about the people he works with. We were lucky to have him as our counselor and wedding officiant. We highly suggest him!

Arya is a master counselor and life coach. He brings a potent combination of skills into his work: a sincere heart, a highly intelligent mind, and a wealth of professional training and experience. Every session feels expertly held in a professional yet humane container; the real issues are addressed, directly and sometimes sternly, but always with an authentic kindness and care. Arya has helped me to: -cut through my insecurities and obstacles around my artwork -focus in on and take more action with my career in more ambitious and visionary ways -navigate very old and difficult patterns with my family -recognize and begin to authentically relate to things I was avoiding about myself/my life in a way that has led to way more relief, freedom and positive action -and just more generally, being someone in my life I can trust to help me through the ups and downs of being a human I'll share one more thing: though I didn't experience this directly, my dear friends went to Arya for couples coaching/relationship counseling. They said they received incredible benefit from their work with Arya, and that if not for his intervention, they don't know if they would have made it. They spoke about his acute attention to detail, especially in tracking the subtle habitual ways that they would shut down or leave their hearts, while giving them practicable alternatives to create the kind of connected, intimate, and fulfilling relationship they were longing for but couldn't find. There's a reason (many reasons) why Arya is at the top of this yelp list. He is absolutely worth it!

Matthew has been a really great counselor to work with. He brings empathy and excitement to our relationship counseling sessions, and provides much needed insight to moments when we get caught up in our historic relational patterns. Our sessions are a good mix of hard work and play. Matthew always has ideas and exercises we can do to work with the material that arises. He is communicative and professional.

I have worked with Don Waxman for almost two years and found him to be the most effective therapist I have used. Don has the ability to be empathetic and directive in a way that works for me. His use of somatic tools with me has be dramatic in my self exploration and healing. He is very knowledgeable and creative and has great set of tools to help you get to your goals.

Not only did he help us plan an amazing wedding ceremony but, he offered fatherly counsel, encouragement, and prayers that we greatly appreciated. Thank you and God bless you, Pastor Steve!!

About

Basically I use a lot of self-disclosure in my discussions. I put myself in the person's shoes, since I am an AVID SKINNER disciple and subscriber to his philosophies! I also utilize the Maslow's Hierarchies of needs to demonstrate the fulfillment of life to higher degree. That being said, I then put the above techniques to use for the problems and crisis that this individual is encountering at this stage of his or her life. Making a more personal approach to define and hopefully resolve their challenged crisis.

About

I have a wide range of experience. One of the specialities I have is working with those who particularly seek to integrate their Christian faith with their therapy work.
