My husband and I have been seeing Dr. Verna Dudley for marriage counseling for a year now and everyday since then has been a blessing. Our relationship, communication, respect has improved dramatically. She examines the problems and shows us how to resolve them in a easy understanding way. She is always professional, punctual, and a well educated brilliant women that saved our marriage. She is always a phone call away if we need her and thats happened before. I highly recommend Dr.Verna Dudley I have never seen a counselor before her and she was so personable from the start. We are now 16 going on 17 years happily married, thanks to her.

Brian has been blessed with a special gift. My life and relationship were in such shambles I didn't know where to turn. Through Brian's guidance I was able to remove myself from a toxic marriage with love in my heart.There are no rules that say you need to be friends with your ex but my ex husband and I are currently beginning our stages of healing and kindness with open communication and love. This probably would not have been possible if not for Brian's help.

Dr Fisher has really helped our marriage in just 4 weeks time. He listens and doesn't solve the problem for you, He asked you to talk to each other and figure out together how to resolve certain situations. He is very genuine and truly has a desire to help marriages. We are so happy we were referred to him and highly recommend him if your in need of a caring, compassionate therapist.

Cristi is the best in her craft and career choice. She deffitntly cares more than any other therapist, I've ever met by far... I've had the pleasure of working with her for some time now and I appreciate what she has taught me. She's very experienced with all walks of life and I think she would fit anybody's personality. I don't like telling people I'm in therapy but I've began too enjoy and love sharing my story with her.She's helped me a lot.She goes above and beyond the call of duty and she checks in on a weekly basis even when it's the weekend and off days she still listens and helps. Cristi always makes me feel special and really good. Since I started seeing her I decided to attend cosmetology school if it weren't for her I probably wouldn't be following my dreams and I would be dreading my life , like I was previously. Cristi Also has helped me find my voice in time and now that I have found my passion, I'm going to stick with it. Follow your heart and the passion will come and she is deffiently passionate about her work and her clients. She always makes me feel at ease and it's so easy to talk with her it's like talking to my family but she's not family at all but I consider her a great mentor and friend. If anybody wants a friend in an therapist I would highly recommend her. I have suggested her to a few of my close friends that deffiently would benefit from her.

My husband and I were in a very unhealthy place in our relationship and neither of us were sure how or even if we wanted to get through it. However because of our 2 year old son we thought it best to seek help. Shanna was patient as we flip flopped continually on staying and ending our marriage. Ultimately we ended the marriage but with the help and guidance we received we were able to do it with love and respect for one another. We are great friends and great co parents to our now 4 year old son. These sessions really changed how we viewed one another and allowed us to heal making the decision to end our marriage a easier and less painful choice.

Amber Rice is an outstanding marriage and family therapist, compassionate supervisor and brilliant teacher. In her practice and teaching, she does not only draw from an impressive number of years of experience and above-the-cut education but also her innate sensibility for the human psyche. I heartily refer clients to her and I cannot recommend her strongly enough. I wish there were more therapists who had her solid common sense and her boundless empathy. If you have a chance to work with her, you will not walk away without a transformational experience.

After months with several disappointing counselors, we found Dr. Jeanne. Her approach is impressively different for 3 reasons: 1) she got to essence of the issue -- quickly went beyond the "superficial layers" and discovered the "issue behind the issue", 2) she is extremely fast -- after every session we experienced immediate, significant shifts and although sometimes this stuff can be difficult, she made it palatable in a way that both my husband and I appreciated 3) she does so much more than marriage counseling -- after we got through some "big" issues, she coached us to resolve a number of important business issues that we have been struggling with for some time. But the bottom line is that I can honestly say, that she did in fact help us save our marriage. The fourth nice sugar on top is that she has a very soothing and calm manner, making the difficult issues that are so hard to face, more palatable and easier to approach. I highly recommend her, she will save you considerable time, pain and money -- and most importantly, she gets results.

I have been to many marriage therapists and while my marriage unraveled right before Dr. Price, she genuinely cared for both of us and without her I would not have been able to make it through this. Her understanding is coupled with exceptional education and enough heartbreaking experiences in her personal life to truly be both empathetic and guiding. Linda is truly one of the rare councerlors who could save your marriage if gone to soon enough and will help you save yourself and family if too late. I have referred many couples and individuals to her and ALL have sent glowing reports back to me.

I have been fortunate enough to be able to benefit from Jimmy's guidance, knowledge and wisdom, for almost two years now. Initially seeking his assistance personally and now my wife and I meet with him regularly, related to improving and preserving the quality of our marriage and family life. My wife and I have accessed many counselors and therapists over the years. But Jimmy Garcia has been clearly the most helpful and insightful Which is why we are continuing to access his much needed and appreciated services. Due to his great listening and communication skills and numerous life experiences (as a counselor, parent, pastor, husband, father, businessman) we feel that we benefit extensively In that, his counseling is grounded in "real life" logic and intelligence. For our needs, Jimmy's spiritual knowledge and experiences as a Pastor, are quite helpful. But do not be discouraged to consider his services, if you'd rather seek guidance on a more secular basis. With an emphasis on your needs and wants, Jimmy will (like he did for us) "fine tune" a plan of action that will equip you with life's tools, spiritual, emotional and otherwise.

Looking for help in adjusting to challenges I was having in my marriage brought me to Stephane's Strategic Life Coaching. I didn't know talking to a professional would help so much. I was not sure how to handle my situation with the problems my husband and I were having. Stephane was very patient, a good listener and asked questions that made me think. It was hard, but he helped me re-prioritize my thinking: what was most important to me, how to handle situations more positively. He made me realize that I was avoiding certain issues which was leaving me angry, not happy, and 'stuck' in my relationship. Now I’m handling things more confidently, our communication is clearer and our relationship is much stronger. Thank you so much, Stephane, for being there for me when I needed it!

Rick Slinkard really helped us though a tough time. I continue to see him on a regular basis for ideas on how to communicate and deal with life complications. He is very easy to talk to and I do not feel judged at all. I am very thankful to have found him.

I started seeing Todd Spath in January 2011, when my life was unraveling. I suffered a nervous breakdown and I was diagnosed with severe depression, generalized anxiety, PTSD, suicidality, and self harm. Todd helped me to uncover the sources of my symptoms that had caused me a lot of pain and grief throughout my whole life. He has helped me and my family through many very difficult marriage and family challenges. It has been a long road back to recovery, but the journey has been well worth it. Having Todd as my therapist has been a great blessing and he has made my journey much easier. Todd has such a great heart to serve people, which shines in his ability as a Marriage and Family Therapist. He is very patience, empathetic, witty, creative, and wise. I highly recommend him to anyone seeking a Marriage and Family Therapist.

As a licensed marriage and family therapist and a certified addictions treatment counselor, my specialty is working with families who are or have suffered from addiction and its many "side effects". So many times, families are affected by addiction in ways that appear in many forms and cause so much confusion, sadness, and hopelessness. I love hearing your story and learning ways to accept what cannot be changed and to find courage to change what can.
