I was first introduced to Ira thru a mutual friend. Then I bought his book on childhood trauma. Boy was that an eye opener!!! I was never physically or sexually abused but I was emotionally neglected as a child. I grew up with misconstrued ideas on equality in a marriage. What to look for in a partner and to place blame on my spouse for my insecurities and lack of understanding. I did not know how to communicate and share my feelings in my first marriage. Now I find myself in a second marriage that is on the rocks again. After I read Iras book I decided to seek counseling for my own growth. Ira has been nothing but empathetic, kind, non judgmental and certainly makes me feel that my feelings and emotions are validated and is helping me work thru my own issues. I also recognized in my now wife the anger, rage at the world, blame for what happened to her in her childhood: sexual abuse by several family members, the fact that she never sought counseling and internalizes her emotions and what a toll it has taken on our marriage. I took the first step to try and save our marriage and we are making progress. My wife has so many years of building her own wall that its taking time to bring them down but Ira has created a safe environment and continues to patiently work with us. It has been and continues to be the best investment in our marriage. We have a long way to go but by the grace of God we will make it!!!!!!!!!!! Matt and Grace
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.
Cristi O'Brien has helped me out with my relationship in numerous ways. She is a great listener and really great at giving advice. I highly recommend her as a therapist for any situations or issues you might have.
I have known Ross as a minister, a counselor, I have had the wonderful experience of participating in his classes. I have been further blessed to play music with Ross. All of this has enriched my life more than I can convey. He is excellent at what he does. He is a gift and I say Thank You!
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!
I love working with Pastor A. Norton D.DIV, CPC because she knows how to get to the root of your problem and try to help you better yourself and life. She is very professional and straightforward when getting the job done. I am glad she is in my life to guide me and her services are reasonable yet worth getting if you are serious about changing things in life. Satira C. Lewis
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.
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.
Cryssa has been so great helping me sort out my individual marital issues. So glad I came to her.
She is a very good therapist and I have referred many of my friends to her. She helps you see things in a different way and guides you to make good choices.
Dr. Christian Snyder is the best counselor you will ever meet. I have benefitted tremendously from our time together. He will help you.
Great experience. He is easy to work with. The vows he provided were perfect and explained exactly how my husband and I felt towards each other. Very romantic ceremony. Would definitely recommend.
I have been getting "healings" from Dawn for the last 2 years. She has made a profound difference in my life....bringing me to a very peaceful, prosperous, healed place. I continue to see Dawn and improve the quality of my life and my business! Thank you!!!
I posted a job and I was able to find a perfect match only 1h later thank you
Suzanne is a balm. She is real and straight but has an amazing style of communicating that makes truth easy to accept and even funny. She listens well and sees her clients. I feel cared for and understood by her. Her support is invaluable.
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 am a licensed MFT working with individuals, couples, and families, inspiring motivation, hope, and healing with people of various backgrounds and cultures. Our earliest relationships are the mother and father of all the other relationships that come later in life. If we are not aware of it and don't have insight into it, we are bound to repeat and relive them over and over again. My goal is to create a warm, safe environment for people who have never felt seen or heard or understood where they can finally feel safe. Therapy provides a chance to rework, repair and reparent those parts of ourselves that never got developed into a new healthier, whole self. It provides another chance. There are no wrong feelings. The skill is how you manage and express them. We are often afraid to give words to our feelings or ask for what we need, yet that is really the path toward freedom. It is important to learn how to respond rather than react, and to know the difference. What you will learn in doing those skills will empower you and improve the quality of all your relationships. You will come to know what healthy arguments look like - to resolve conflict without blame.
