Steve has been an invaluable source of wise guidance and effective guidance for both myself and my wife as we navigate life's complexities in light of the gospel of Jesus Christ. He brings to the table a natural ability to discern our situation, and yet remains, along with us, in reliance upon the Holy Spirit for ultimate direction and correction. I cannot recommend Steve enough to both single clients and married alike.
My primary goal was to identify key concept that would help me understand what I needed to do not only to sustain a healthy relationship, but also how to plan for a successful marriage. I learned three distinct concepts and more importantly can begin to implement in my relationship. I gained a very good education on the necessary and important aspects of creating a successful marriage.
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!
Sasha is a smart, intuitive, compassionate and practical coach and she has supported my emotional and creative growth in many ways. We have discussed a wide range of topics including relationships, work-life balance, creativity, nonviolent communication, ambivalence about raising a child, and being authentic. I learned new skills and tools through our sessions, which have been more effective than my previous experiences with talk therapy and life coaching. I have grown significantly through working with Sasha and I continue to see tangible changes. I highly recommend working one-on-one with her.
Raphael did our wedding for us, he helped us plan it out, he came fully dressed for a our celtic wedding. He made our wedding one to remember, he even said a traditional celtic saying done at weddings and it was just perfect. I recommend him to any one that would like a great wedding.
Beth knew the right questions to ask to address my heart’s desire – a better connection with my husband. I felt like she really listened to and understood me as she helped me gain clarity on what was contributing to our disconnect – unresolved hurts. She helped me to get in touch with my experience, and through that I discovered I wasn’t being fully vulnerable with my husband and sharing what was important to me. My next steps seemed so simple once we role-played how to say what I was really feeling. She showed me how our lack of intimacy was affecting other areas of my life as well. She also shared testimonials that highlighted client successes from other couples that were experiencing what we were. This renewed my hope and inspired me because some of the solutions seemed so simple. The relationship to my husband is very important to me, and so is my inner peace and joy. I am grateful to Beth for showing me how I can have it all.
Grace Pacheco is an amazing therapist. My partner and I had been rather "stuck" for nearly six months. We were not unhappy, but we were not happy either. Through her premarital survey, my partner and I were able to see more clearly areas that could benefit from growth but also areas in which we excelled. She gave us affirmation that we needed to keep feeling like our choice to be together was a positive decision and also gave us hope; hope that with minor changes (mostly broadening our empathy and understanding for one another) we had the potential to be in an even better place than before. Because of Grace's excellent help, both my partner and I gained the confidence to share feelings we had been hesitant to share for the six years we have been together because Grace showed us that it was not about sparing each other's feelings. She helped us realize that by remaining silent, the feelings would only muster up resentment and multiply to larger issues. Grace aided us in highlighting our strengths to explain how and why it is we've gotten so far in our relationship. In summary, Grace is an amazing,honest, and energetic therapist. She does not pretend to be beyond her expertise and always told us if she felt something was beyond her scope. She treated us with dignity, respect, and positive worth. We were not just "clients", we were really people with legitimate obstacles. My favorite characteristic about Grace..... She's validating. She did not feed us the "things could be worse" line. She highlighted that everyone has different lows, but that does not take away from it being YOUR low. She made us feel important and individual. I will forever value her for how I was treated and how she helped me with my partner. Amazing Grace, thank you.
He is very communicative and understanding about scheduling. Goes above and beyond, and is flexible.
He was genuine and didn't rush us. He used the paperwork that we submitted when we arrived to lead the conversation. My husband and I are working toward a better relationship yet it was good to talk with Paul as a mediator, and he helped start the conversation that we can continue as a couple. If needed, we'd hire Paul again without hestitation.
Hunter creates a wonderfully safe environment to explore whatever it is keeping you from being fully self-expressed. She is warm, knowledgeable and very accessible. I was feeling like I hadn’t severed my emotional ties with an old boyfriend and it was impacting my experience of myself as well as him, and occupying way too much of my brain real estate. Something I find is all too common with women. In one hypnotherapy session with Hunter I was able to separate myself from him and come back to feeling grounded within myself. This man and I see each other often as we remain friends and are in the same social network. I can now enjoy his company and be very present to him without being distracted by any unwanted emotional attachment. Thanks Hunter!
