I had the privilege to hear Dr. Ira Lake of Imtasik Family Counseling Services speak on How to make the Most of your life. He is an inspirational man and his talk gave me much encouragement having listened to how he overcame his own childhood challenges. We all were laughing one minute and moved by his faith and compassion the next. Iras enthusiasm was infectious and engaged the entire group throughout his entire message. Dr. Ira Lake is worthy of the highest praise for motivating people to push harder to improve their quality of life. I left the luncheon with an improved attitude and blessed for this opportunity to have listened to him speak.
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.
We are about to celebrate or 7th anniversary but I can still remember the day like it was yesterday! Mike was very helpful and tailored the premarital counseling to our lifestyle. He listened to us when we asked to keep the ceremony short and sweet. Best of all, he incorporated humorous and meaningful statements that kept our guests interested. If he stilled lived in WA I’d recommend him to all my friends up here.
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.
Ross has guided me, enlightened me, and enriched my life in many areas. He has served as my spiritual teacher, my yoga instructor, my family counselor, my instructor and facilitator in six different classes, and an officiant at the memorial service for my niece. In all these areas, his commitment to excellence, his personal touch, his research and intelligence, and his loving care and concern come shining through. My life is tremendously richer because of his impact.
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.
So far, I've met Charlie for a counseling session 2 times, and will continue, and although Charlie does a lot of weddings, he also counsels. I am seeing him for grief counseling on the loss of my precious husband. I find Charlie sincere, authentic in his faith, good listener, empathetic and easy to talk with. He prayerfully considers his suggestions offered to me. I am hopeful to believe he prays for me and my family to become strengthened, encouraged, and comforted as well. Really appreciate him.
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.
I keep crossing paths with Carlyle, and each time we meet again, I am more impressed with his dedication and the breadth of his knowledge. When I first met Carlyle, he was a chaplain for Hospice working with children and some of the more difficult cases, even for Hospice. We collaborated with some work investigating indigenous technologies that deal with grieving, community and relationship, and now share some responsibilities guiding a non-profit group doing water projects and education projects in West Africa. Carlyle has provided counseling and support for some people I know well, and I have been able to see up close the compassion and skill that he brings when working with people who are often in some very vulnerable places. He has recommended some powerful practices and rituals to people that have helped them to ground, and better hold and move the energies they are wrestling with. I have the highest regard for Carlyle, and recommend him with no reservations for help with grief and spiritual needs.
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.
Third Way Counseling is great! They have been sensitive to my needs (financial and time constraints) and are accommodating in every way.
Finding a therapist can often be a difficult task, but I would recommend Stacey to absolutely anyone. She is compassionate, calm and very skilled in what she does. Her desire to help is reflected in her approach to conversations. She conducts herself in a professional manner, but has an innate ability to connect to people. My advice is to call Stacey today and get started on the path to understanding and appreciating yourself.
She was fantastic during the initial phone consultation. A great listener, very calming and reassuring and gave me a detailed run-down of what to look forward in coming sessions. I look forward to her help :)

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.
