Our first time experiencing marriage counseling. With just our first session we've learned so much. Michelle explains everything so well from a man and woman's point of view. Really looking forward to our sessions with her.
Stephanie wonderful and she is helping me and my husband get over this dreaded hump in our marriage. She gives a safe space and a neutral environment that allows for us both to be comfortable.
I starting seeing Nancy with my husband for marriage counseling. After awhile it switched to individual sessions. I was comfortable talking to her from the very beginning, She is a caring, compassionate and non judgmental person. I was a patient of Nancy's for over 3 years. The only reason I am not a client currently is she moved to Camarillo. I would recommend her to any of my friends and family. I wish her well in her new adventure.
My goodness, how can I put into words my feelings on Reverend James as our Wedding Officiant? When I look back on that day, he is there smiling at me-his presence brings me peace as it always has. He is the one who before our wedding reminded me to remember to look into each other eyes and take in the moment and all its greatness. And I am so glad I did that! Reverend James was the one who counseled my husband and I before our marriage-helping us understand all that stood before us and that all we needed was love, understanding and compassion. Reverend James even found us our band-who made the day spectacular! My own father is older, from another time. Reverend James has always been there for me in a way that I really needed- a strong wise person who loved and reminded me to love as greatly as I can. If he has made it into your life-enjoy the blessing that he really is.
Brad was there for him when I needed him the most. He was the one who reminded me "SELF LOVE" that gave me the courage to leave my husband who was cheating on me. Brad genuinely cares about me as a person, now just another client of his. He never assumes what is best for me.. he always ask me why I do the things I do... He makes me ponder on a lot of my thoughts and decisions... He never judges.. he is not just a coach.. he is a friend.. he cares and loves people and that is what makes him so successful in what he does... With Brad's help, I was able to put my past behind me and move on with my life.. He shows me that TRUE LOVE is out there.. Just ask the universe for it and it will bring it to you... Brad brought a lot of his life experiences to the table... he is compassionate and empathetic because he speaks and coaches from his personal experiences.. He is real... not some counselors with head knowledge... I highly recommend Brad if you are lost and need to find who you truly are...
I highly recommend Pastor Eddie Diaz as a counselor, he counseled me during my marriage also after I lost my husband. He grief counseled me, also with anxiety depression. So I highly recommend him.
Cindy is a warm and caring therapist. She is able to connect quickly to a client and provide empathy and support. Cindy assists clients with a variety of problems and struggles. While working with Cindy, I discovered that she is able to utilize a wide variety of skills and knowledge to create meaningful and positive change in the lives of her adult and youth clients. I strongly recommend Cindy as a Marriage and Family Therapist.
I have worked with Carlyle in health care and spiritual care settings. He brings clarity and compassion to the process of becoming a whole and healed person. Carlyle is committed to bringing out the best in himself & those around him, especially come hell & high water. He is the person we all want to have on our team or lifeboat when facing difficult times. You could do no better than come to know Carlyle as a counselor or guide for yourself. I for one feel blessed to know him, rely on him, and be care for by him. — Jennifer Block, Chaplain and Educator
I just started working with Tara so far it has been good.
Lydia is amazingly intuitive, knowledgeable and compassionate therapist. Every time I've referred her clients they have called me to thank me for helping them find her. She's definitely my go to person when someone I know needs a female therapist.
We received couple therapy, marriage counseling. It was the best marriage we had experienced in the 10 years of our marriage and after trying 5 other therapists. We loved how unique it was to us and the tools we were given to continue our success.
Matthew and I knew we wanted to marry and blend our families. When we found out we were able to have the older children live with us, we felt it would be better for our family to solidify with Marriage. We called on our friend Victoria, as an ordained Minister, she understood us, and knew we were committed to each other and our family. Victoria married Matthew and I in an intimate, touching ceremony where we had our first date. Victoria touched on reminders for us of love, commitment and God. We are so thankful she was there for us in this exciting time of our lives. Thank you Victoria!!
Ayamanatara performed our wedding in September of 2009. She paid meticulous attention to creating a day that fully incorporated our hopes and expectations as well as being representational of the community we were creating with our newly formed circle of friends and family. We received a multitude of compliments from our guests on the ceremony that she performed. We will always be grateful that she was such an integral part of our marriage's beginning.
Terri helped me through a very tough time in my life. She has always been a trusted, loyal and helpful counselor. Her insight and guidance has helped me deal many life issues including depression, anxiety, relationships and abuse. Anyone will benefit from working with Terri she is a GREAT counselor!
Jeffery managed to see me at very short notice. I walked into his office in a very confused and upset state of mind. I have never had any kind of councilling before but immediately felt at ease. We talked over my issue and I left feeling a lot better than when I arrived. I cannot recommend Jeffery enough, he has given me the strength to see a way forward in my life at a time of great turmoil and emotional stress.
I am passionate about healthy marriages and thriving relationships, so I most enjoy working with dating, engaged, and married couples. I teach each couple how to assertively ask for what they want and need, how to communicate effectively by allowing their partner to feel safe, and how to resolve conflict in a constructive way that respects, rather than wounds, one another. If you are facing challenging circumstances in your relationship, I believe these can be an opportunity to strengthen your connection with your partner and draw you closer together, instead of driving you apart. For dating and engaged couples, I am a certified facilitator for the prepare/enrich program and recommend couples considering marriage to complete this valuable instrument. We use your data to identify strengths and growth areas, as well as explore opinions about core issues in marriage to find agreement and negotiate differences. I offer day, evening, and weekend sessions, as well as a free phone consultation to briefly discuss your situation and answer any questions you have as you evaluate options for counseling.
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, 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've 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 who are working with individuals who suffer from addictive and compulsive sexual behaviors. I've received a Master of Arts degree in clinical psychology from Azusa Pacific University and 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, which is a comprehensive couple assessment tool for pre-marital counseling.
I provide marriage counseling for couples at risk of divorce or who need to learn how to effectively communicate, set boundaries, and assert oneself. I also do individual therapy for relationship issues, depression, anxiety, chemical dependency, and with a specialty working with eating disorders.
I am a well-known, experienced spiritual counselor/astrologer/numerologist/palmist with over 40 years of experience in helping people fulfill their own life purpose as well as understand their loved ones, family, friends and romantic partners/spouses by comparing compatibility and finding answers in their important relationships. If you are looking to gain clarity, seek insight into you personal issues, and find out the timetables of your own life and those you care about and love, exploring astrological and numerological counsel will truly help you. I really care and lovingly help you with my knowledge and insight. I am a great listener and highly intuitive and perceptive and possess wisdom through learning and decades of personal and professional experience. A session with me will leave you feeling positive about yourself, those close to you and your future, be it personal or career. Together, we will look at your special situation in great detail and find innovative and workable solutions. I look forward to connecting with you in the near future and helping you reach success and happiness.
I have worked with hospice, helping individuals and families entering their end of life transition. I have found that by paying particular attention to the steps of grief, people can continue to grow and build healthy relationships even while coming to terms with a terminal illness. It is important for everyone to be able to break through old patterns to say what needs to be said. I have since transitioned to working with individuals with eating disorders, which reflect other underlying issues and trauma. I assisted many clients replace self-destructive behaviors (eating disorders, self-harm, substance abuse, and other maladaptive coping skills) with acceptance and self-love. I believe therapy can benefit everyone who sincerely wishes to see a change in his or her life. Appropriate therapy can relieve feelings of distress, increase satisfaction in interpersonal relationships, create skills for managing anxiety, and help grow greater personal awareness and insight. Difficult changes have no specific design, but with help, you can learn from them, grow with them, and be better because of them.
As a licensed family and marriage therapist, Robert C. Jameson concentrates on assisting clients in understanding and overcoming issues, like limiting beliefs, boundaries, relationships, love, anxiety, depression, hurt and anger, to name a few. During his years of private practice, Mr. Jameson discovered it is beneficial to provide many of his clients "homework" in the form of handouts, to aid their work while in session. The Keys to Joy-Filled Living was created from his handouts of tested and proven exercises and methods.
