I had my doubts about getting marriage counseling, but when I started going to Michelle she proved to me how helpful it really is. So much that I think every young couple needs coaching in order to avoid serious relationship issues in the future. With her loving sidekick/spouse helping out, it provides a male and female aspect of each situation that comes up. Overall, Michelle is a great, caring person that will provide you with positive energy, motivation, and useful resources for life (not just marriage counseling). Coaching or no coaching, it's always nice to be blessed with the presence of such a person in your lifetime.
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.
Jaimi is one of the most balanced people I have ever met: she has advised me on a variety of issues including my marriage, my business and relationships with friends. Every time I have had a problem to discuss with Jaimi it has been met with a listening ear and an open-mind. She has helped me think differently and approach challenges in a new way; I can't recommend her more highly.
I had the pleasure of working with Christina, as my individual therapist, through a painful divorce. Christina had my back the entire time and helped me work out a lot of the emotional stress that was eating me up. She's caring, always available, and willing to go above and beyond at anytime. She has an excellent reputation and has worked with addiction, mental health, and substance abuse patients and has dealt with all related aspects of treatment. She has helped many people with career and life transitions and continues to be a very important person in my life. I highly recommend her. Its always good to have a therapist who has been through what you are going through in life. She understands and offers valuable internal tools to help you work through whatever the issues are.
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.
Brad officiated my wedding and did an incredible job. I'm Christian and my wife's family is Jewish yet he was able to comfortably include everyone in the ceremony which everyone loved and appreciated.
I just started working with Tara so far it has been good.
Our sessions teach me so much about myself and I am given the tools I need to manage my confusion and even thrive.
Tim is a wonderful marriage and family coach. I am a Pastor in the area and have referred many couples and parents to Tim over the last 15 years. All with great results I highly recommend Tim!.
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.
Rachel is very warm and inviting. She was prompt in responding and was able to schedule me right away. I would recommend her to my own close friends and family!
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.
Staff is friendly and helpful. The therapists have a wealth of education and tools to help clients through the healing process. I like that Novus has many different options depending on individual needs.
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 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.
GETTING THE MOST OUT OF THERAPY Whatever your problem, challenge, trauma or pain, the power to change exists within you. I believe an effective therapists job is to support your shift, not to create it for you. Being with clients session after session, I find the persons who have positive movement are the ones who show up every week seeking collaborative solutions and try them out between sessions. Whether youre familiar with the therapy experience, or just hoping to find a place to provide some helpful solutions during a difficult time, I can help you make your desired shifts. Together, we can mutually create a safe space to discover new ways of looking at things and make progress toward your goals and desires.
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.
