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
Our first time experiencing marriage counseling. With just our first session we've learned so much. Michelle explains everything so well from a man and woman's point of view. Really looking forward to our sessions with her.
My husband and I love Cristi! She had a great outline for premarital counseling. We highly recommend her. She gave us a great foundation to the start of our marriage. Truly, she is a gem.
We couldn't possibly praise our experience with WIll highly enough! Will has tremendous wisdom and insight. He has a revolutionary approach to marriage counseling!
When people ask me about Pedro, this is what I tell them, "Hire Pedro Baez, work with him assiduously, and change your life immeasurably for the better." Pedro is a forthright, honest, and loving coach who will act like a sextant as you steer your life towards the direction you want to go, revealing the innumerable choices in your journey and the transformative beauty of the experience. I've worked with him for almost two years, and this is the fruit: 1. Wrote a well-received book. 2. Recovered from an abusive marriage. 3. Learned to be less reactive, spot dysfunctional cycles, and shift relationships so that they are healthier. I am grateful for the work we have done.
I HIGHLY recommend this awesome woman of God! Before our wedding she took the time to counsel us and MY GOD it was an awesome experience. She laid out the foundation and made sure we knew our duties as husband and wife. We were dealing with things that should not be brought into a marriage and she got to the root of the problem. We are so blessed that she took out the time to make sure we went into a marriage whole and not broken. We know we made the right decision when we asked her to marry us! This Wonderful women of God made our ceremony so memorable, she wrote out our sand ceremony and people are still talking about how powerful it was. So if you are having trouble with wording your ceremony I HIGHLY recommend you ask her for help, trust me it's worth every penny! My husband and I are so happy now! With the help of this wonderful Woman of God, we did not go into our marriage blinded or broken but whole and united as one and we are looking forward to our future as a married couple.
Brad was there for him when I needed him the most. He was the one who reminded me "SELF LOVE" that gave me the courage to leave my husband who was cheating on me. Brad genuinely cares about me as a person, now just another client of his. He never assumes what is best for me.. he always ask me why I do the things I do... He makes me ponder on a lot of my thoughts and decisions... He never judges.. he is not just a coach.. he is a friend.. he cares and loves people and that is what makes him so successful in what he does... With Brad's help, I was able to put my past behind me and move on with my life.. He shows me that TRUE LOVE is out there.. Just ask the universe for it and it will bring it to you... Brad brought a lot of his life experiences to the table... he is compassionate and empathetic because he speaks and coaches from his personal experiences.. He is real... not some counselors with head knowledge... I highly recommend Brad if you are lost and need to find who you truly are...
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!!!
I have worked with Carlyle in health care and spiritual care settings. He brings clarity and compassion to the process of becoming a whole and healed person. Carlyle is committed to bringing out the best in himself & those around him, especially come hell & high water. He is the person we all want to have on our team or lifeboat when facing difficult times. You could do no better than come to know Carlyle as a counselor or guide for yourself. I for one feel blessed to know him, rely on him, and be care for by him. — Jennifer Block, Chaplain and Educator
To summarize my experience working with Olivia, I would say life changing. Her counseling was fantastic and filled with tons of insight. Her course works if you are willing to put in the work. Plain and simple. I would recommend her to anyone.
We had a beautiful and incredibly fun wedding in Northern California, but our officiant, Brad Sarian, was the by far our favorite part of our wedding. Its easy to get caught up in the wedding planning, vendors, and the day itself, but through premarital meetings and the actual ceremony, Brad pointed my wife and I (and all our guests) to the true purpose of marriage. Brad is a great communicator, very approachable, and relatable, not just to my wife and I, but to everyone in attendance. I highly recommend Brad to be the officiant of your wedding.
So happy I found a therapist that understands what I go through. Dr. Maxine your great 😆
Rachel is very warm and inviting. She was prompt in responding and was able to schedule me right away. I would recommend her to my own close friends and family!
Ravid is a complete treasure! I came to know her after reading an incredibly compelling online article she had written. It resonated with some difficulties I had been dealing with in my life. After a couple of emails we began meeting weekly face to face over the internet. Having her guidance and feedback has led me to a place of peace that I had been longing to find for some time. I truly feel fortunate to have known her and highly recommend her as a counselor regardless of what stage of life or love you are in.
Terri helped me through a very tough time in my life. She has always been a trusted, loyal and helpful counselor. Her insight and guidance has helped me deal many life issues including depression, anxiety, relationships and abuse. Anyone will benefit from working with Terri she is a GREAT counselor!
GETTING THE MOST OUT OF THERAPY Whatever your problem, challenge, trauma or pain, the power to change exists within you. I believe an effective therapists job is to support your shift, not to create it for you. Being with clients session after session, I find the persons who have positive movement are the ones who show up every week seeking collaborative solutions and try them out between sessions. Whether youre familiar with the therapy experience, or just hoping to find a place to provide some helpful solutions during a difficult time, I can help you make your desired shifts. Together, we can mutually create a safe space to discover new ways of looking at things and make progress toward your goals and desires.
I am a licensed marriage and family therapist located in La Canada Flintridge. I am convenient to La Crescenta, Glendale, Eagle Rock, Burbank, Altadena, Pasadena and many Los Angeles area communities. I specialize in providing play-and-talk therapy to children, teens and families. I also specialize in treating trauma including physical, sexual or emotional trauma. I am passionate about helping my clients thrive again in their daily lives.
I officiate at weddings, deliver homilies, and prepare wedding liturgies. I am also available for premarital counseling.
I have worked with hospice, helping individuals and families entering their end of life transition. I have found that by paying particular attention to the steps of grief, people can continue to grow and build healthy relationships even while coming to terms with a terminal illness. It is important for everyone to be able to break through old patterns to say what needs to be said. I have since transitioned to working with individuals with eating disorders, which reflect other underlying issues and trauma. I assisted many clients replace self-destructive behaviors (eating disorders, self-harm, substance abuse, and other maladaptive coping skills) with acceptance and self-love. I believe therapy can benefit everyone who sincerely wishes to see a change in his or her life. Appropriate therapy can relieve feelings of distress, increase satisfaction in interpersonal relationships, create skills for managing anxiety, and help grow greater personal awareness and insight. Difficult changes have no specific design, but with help, you can learn from them, grow with them, and be better because of them.
I provide supportive professional counseling for individuals and couples. I offer Christian counseling for marriage and premarriage, boundary issues, depression and anxiety, blended families, addictions, divorce recovery, anger management, abuse and co-dependence, childhood abuse, couples counseling, and posttraumatic stress disorder.
