After visiting in meeting with a couple of other marriage counselors in the recent past I can honestly say that dr. Lake was a breath of fresh air. In searching for a marriage counselor one looks for someone who is unbiased and open to both parties man and woman; and that is exactly what we found in Dr Lake. Our first meeting proved that he was wanting to know each of us as an individual, our feelings our thoughts and what we wanted. And that is what he bases his valuation and sessions off of. Highly recommended from husband and wife. Tony C

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.

Helped with Relationship Counseling. My girl friend and I were going through a difficult time. We heard from others about the benefit of choosing a life coach over a MFT or a Psychologist. Our problems were communication about here and now. We didn't want to have to spend so much time individually sitting in "couch therapy " with a psychologist. Patti gets right to the underline issues. Her experience in this field is second to none. Our relationship including that of our teenage children that each of us has from our previous marriages has gotten so much better. Everyone in our family has benefited from we call her " our life coach" She is so easy to talk to. My fear and anxiety trusting to talk to someone with our issues went away the moment we met her. Our relationship has never been better thanks to Patti

My husband and I came to see Johnny in full-on crisis mode on the brink of separation and we've come so far, it saved our 10-year marriage. Johnny brought us back to the root of how much we love each other, how to communicate, listen better, get each other's perspective, and be more kind to each other. We have so many more tools. We have learned how to work on ourselves as individuals to grow so we can be stronger and flourish on our own, as partners and as parents. I feel so much lighter, happier and more in love, truly than ever before. I don't know what we would have done without all of his guidance. We are so so grateful. -Kate

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.

Ross has guided me, enlightened me, and enriched my life in many areas. He has served as my spiritual teacher, my yoga instructor, my family counselor, my instructor and facilitator in six different classes, and an officiant at the memorial service for my niece. In all these areas, his commitment to excellence, his personal touch, his research and intelligence, and his loving care and concern come shining through. My life is tremendously richer because of his impact.

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.

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!!

Pastor Jim Gaffney made our wedding day awesome! He was genuine, mindful of our needs and the needs of the guests, and brought God into the ceremony! In addition, premarital counseling with Jim was crucial to our marriage. Jena and I know exactly what we were getting into!!!

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.

In aproximately 2003 my husband and I were counseling with Mark. We were desperate for help, understanding, and relief. We literally felt something destroying us inwardly, confusing every thing we believed in. This one thing we could not overcome was killing our marriage. After searching books, talking to other counselors, going to marriage conferences.... really we couldn't quite put our finger on it or get to the root. However Mark was discerning, compassionate, non judgmental and real. He was able to help my husband let his guard down and be honest, open and willing ;by the power of the Holy Spirit working through him. We did counsel for a good several months but it was do to my husbands unwillingness to be completely honest in the beginning. I will never forget that evening when my husband returned home form what may have been one of their last sessions. I was nearly afraid there was such a notable difference in his eyes and his tone of voice and his entire demeanor. He was calm, he was changed, transformed he was peaceful, He was free! The shame, the guilt was gone. His eyes were clear , His heart was lifted. I had my husband back in a way I had not ever known him. God really used mark to bring about a deliverance we never knew was available. This was 12 years ago. Of course like anything one must continue to do what is required to keep the results achieved. If we were talking weight loss , one would continue to eat healthy and exercise. Lets just say we can use some review it has been awhile now (13 years or more) and sometimes a refresher course is needed. I plan to contact Mark for a check up. I believe the Lord led me to find his business I did not know existed. At the time we counseled, it was more casual not a business. I am so happy to have found him after all these years. I highly recommend Mark as he is a great tool in God's hand to bring loving compassionate help to those hurting and bound up by their past and own short comings. Blessings to this business!

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.

About

My practice is based on a holistic approach that focuses on the behavioral, cognitive, social, emotional and spiritual aspects of the individual's life. I have over thirty years of experience. Healing should not take years. I work to help you identify and heal core issues, and develop a gentle practice that can accelerate your healing. Clients I have served have said that my holistic and integrative process has done more for them than other therapies they have tried over the years. Individuals and couples tell me they have been able to identify core issues, and heal by practicing focused, individualized healing techniques. I have found over the past thirty years of helping individual, couples and families that healing occurs quicker and with more lasting results when people learn to develop a practice that is consistent and motivating, and which produces valid results. I also have years of experience working with people who have various developmental disabilities, such as Asperger syndrome, autism, and pervasive developmental disorder.
