When my husband and i got engaged we were looking for someone to not only marry us but also provide premarital counseling services. My sister recommended Imtasik famili counseling services. Ira did a fantastic job, he was very welcoming and has a great sense of humor. Although he was unable to marry us due to prior engagement, Ira helped us find someone available to marry us. I am not sure what all counselors talk about, but i would assume they all talk about similar things. Ira gave us advice on finances, how to "fight" fair and other topics as well. He never made us feel uncomfortable or judged for things we could not answer properly or at all for that matter. He was even very considerate about scheduling since I lived in Arizona at the time. I would definitely recommend Ira Lake at Imtasik family counseling services Inc. It is definitely worth it. Connie and Diego

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.

I could write a complete memoir around my experience with Fawn. Before I get into it, I want to be very straightforward: Fawn: -Incredibly smart with huge range of knowledge in counseling and resources -Infinitely compassionate -Super easy to talk to and considerate of me -My biggest cheerleader (I'm talking up there next to my mom) -Worth every penny Me: (and you, future client!) -Stuck / Confused / Unhappy -Willing to be utterly honest with Fawn and myself -Open to making big and small lifestyle changes -Committed to spend as much reasonable time on coaching exercises and reading -(4 months later) Crazy in love with myself and so proud to have embarked on this journey to create my HELL YES life I liken my experience with Fawn to be, "When the student is ready, the teacher will appear." (Buddha) I was in a really tough place in my life, feeling like I had no direction or even a compass to guide me. Fawn struck me with a phrase in her bio that said that she helps women who feel like they are stuck. I totally identified with that. I knew that something needed to change in my life. I originally reached out with the intent that it would be my career, but working with Fawn became so much more. With her guidance and support I have made incredible changes in my life, self-appreciation, discipline, relationships, spirituality, and happiness. We started unpacking the deepest of deep limiting beliefs that I had about myself. In no way would I describe this process as easy, but the payoff is oh so sweet. I have personal testimonies from the people around me (some of who don't know that I'm working with a coach) that recognize a change in my daily happiness. One of the MANY things I have loved about working with Fawn is her ability to zero in on what I need. She has incredible knowledge combined with a natural intuition of how to help her clients grow. Even if I didn't know what I would accomplish on a given call, it was her talent and expertise that helped me each step along the way. She introduced me to new methods of communication and taught me many exercises that I will continue to use whenever I am faced with challenging situations for the rest of my life. She also recommends great books :) Another area of note where I noticed a huge change in the course of my coaching with Fawn is my self-discipline. I was really struggling with accomplishing anything that felt like "work". (Outside of work.) I was a writer that hadn't written in years and through my personalized action items (or assignments) I began a very therapeutic return to my art. I also started creating a schedule and setting goals for myself. Over time, the result and accomplishment of doing the "work" totally outweighed the dread that hovers around procrastination. I was able to change a really bad habit that I specifically identified in the beginning of this journey. I have a remarkable amount of quantifiable self-improvement in my google docs that I am so proud of. I have to second another review I saw saying if "you're wondering whether or not to take the plunge..." DO IT. Your life is about to change.

Murray was very experienced and professional with helping my husband and I get a better understanding of one another. Our relationship was strained over the course of several disagreements on key topics, but Murray helped provide us with some simple but powerful tools in order to work out our problems as a couple. His guidance and fair approach made sure we were both comfortable in speaking our mind. We were able to rebuild trust and repair the damaged foundation of our marriage at the end of Murray's counseling sessions. We would not hesitate to recommend him to a close friend if we saw they were having similar issues.

From my experience with her, Samantha Michaels has an insight to life that allows her to see beneath the surface of the problems of everyday living, into the sometimes dark layers where the truth most often lies. It took me awhile to trust her approach, but once I did, I found it easier and easier to unburden myself – and once I was able to see where my shortcomings really were, that they were mine and not those around me, I began rebuilding my self confidence and my self esteem.

We worked extensively with Pastor Eddie for our premarital counseling. He made us realized that the "engagement" period of a relationship isn't just meant to plan a wedding, it's more importantly meant to plan for your marriage. He equipped us both with the essential tools needed for marriage and for a lifetime of agape love. He covers everything with the couple so you are entering this marriage with no surprises. You review everything from fair fighting, communication, finances, parenting, etc. and how imperative it is to keep God at the center of your life and your marriage. Anyone we talk to who is looking to get engaged or is engaged, we encourage them to definitely do premarital counseling and to contact Pastor Eddie.

Pastor Steve officiated our wedding and did an outstanding job. His counsel was from the heart and genuine. His love for God gave our ceremony the level of spirituality we had hoped for. We are so grateful to have found him, truly a gem.

Working with Saman for almost 3 years and I have to say that he has blossomed into a great professional. To be honest I was really skeptical if therapy was right for me, seeing as I only met him a year or so into his internship so I wasn't sure if he was able to help me. He is a very patient, compassionate and understanding person who takes this field of work to heart...It's pretty much his calling in life. Fast forward two and a half years later, I've learned ways to cope with my anxiety and have gained the confidence to accomplish my goals in my life.

    About

    Gifted and Creative Counseling is my private assessment, life coaching and psychotherapy practice. I've helped people of all ages fulfill their purpose and passion for the last 15 years. I specialize in identifying reasons for complex problems, such as why we aren't succeeding in a given area (social, emotional, relational, occupational, educational, etc.) how to get past whatever is blocking us (beliefs, life situation, relationships, trauma, depression, anxiety). We work at your speed in person, at my Granada Hills office, or by phone, skype, or email. I also specialize in assessing children who are having difficulties, both using achievement testing, and qualitative means such as observation, interview and play, that can yield a kind of owner's manual for him or her; this is useful in a wide range of applications, and teachers really benefit from knowing this information.
