Dr. Verna Dudley is the best counselor and life coach I have ever had the experience of using. She helped me get through some of the most difficult times of my life, including becoming a parent to two step daughters with serious behavioral problems; going through a divorce; and later; healing from a major illness. She is amazing and I would very highly recommend her to anyone needing a life coach or counseling.

Mike Acker delivered an amazing wedding sermon. Not only was it professional and well planned but he delivered it with passion and a touch of humor. My wife and I also went through marriage counseling with Mike which we find reverting back to on a daily basis. We definitely recommend Mike Acker for your special day.

I went to see Paul because I needed counseling, I didnt know he was a hypnotherapist. He called me right away and I could tell he really cares. He explained his technique and was very personable with a great sense of humor. He truly believed that he could help me. When I went to his office I was completely hopeless but Paul sat down with me to reassure me that I have a bright future ahead of me. I feel a LOT better after seeing him. This was different than a regular therapy session, and it worked a lot more effectively than just talking everything out. Somehow it really worked and afterwards I felt ready to take more responsibility for my life!

Lauren is amazing from A to Z. She took the extra time to really understand my situation and figure out a customized step by step program. If you have an issue, don't think twice to come to Lauren. She will not judge you, and its an open space for you to discuss. If I could rate this higher than 5 stars I would.

Randy Moraitis has been my coach and a friend for the past five or six years. As the director of operations in the organization, I was privileged to work with him and found him to have insight and wisdom needed for the position that I was in. Since leaving that organization, I have sought Randy out a number of times to assist me in situations that I had not encountered before and have always appreciate his insight and suggestions. Randy is an individual who will go above and beyond where many others would not. Randy takes the time to listen and understand where someone is needing change and in those confidential moments will guide that person to see the strengths they have and how to move in the direction they want to go. Randy is intelligent not only in the sense of his training but in his life experience as well and as such has helped me and others, to navigate the transition that was needed. From the very first conversation an individual will feel comfortable with Randy and will feel empowered to take the next indicated step necessary for the goal that is desired. Randy is an incredibly professional and skilled coach dedicated to helping people create the lives that they want. As he very well knows, no two individuals will travel the same road and through his use of questions, insight, perspective and authenthic listening skills he has helped me, and others, to answer difficult questions that I could not answer on my own. Randy’s straightforward approach is direct, professional and empowering. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking to remove the obstacles and find direction on how to move forward.

I'm more like an expert guide in the wilderness.... I'll offer you insight, and to show you proven tools that will cut like a laser to the truth, and you'll know you're safe, ...and "good enough". Really. Do you want a counselor who has studied about how to overcome anxiety or one who has both studied and overcome it themselves? I bring over twenty-five years on the path of discovering how Life works, and how to stay in the Flow, where everything is just working out for You!

About

There are times in everyone's life when we feel that we do not know which way to go, become overwhelmed, or are faced with a major life decision. During these times, it can be difficult to recall your strengths, find a solution, or even create a reasonable path for yourself. It can be greatly beneficial to speak to someone who is able to not only listen and offer support, but also guide you to discover your own solution to your life challenges. I feel that therapy must be flexible in order to facilitate positive change thought out to one's life. Due to this, I practice psychotherapy through a bend of CBT, solution-focused therapy, and extended family systems.
