My wonderful sister/maid of honor sent me a link with Dr. Ira Lake's information along with several others when my now husband and I were looking for an officiant. While reading all of the information from the different individuals, Dr. Lake stood out to us. Our initial in person meeting with him went very well and my now husband and I confirmed our decision. The pricing and the two free marriage counseling sessions were a great bonus. We used one of our sessions as pre-marriage counseling and it was a helpful and reassuring session. I even ordered his book and read it. The day of the wedding went smoothly, Dr. Lake spoke clearly from memory, included humor, and sincerity. He can definitely come up with on the spot comments to ease situations. The ceremony went very well. A couple of our guests complimented our choice in choosing Ira as our officiant. I had the envelope with money ready in my dressing room, but I had forgotten to bring it with me to give to him. He told us not to worry and just to mail it out whenever we can. I do like the trust he has in people, because I find myself to be the same way. We are very happy with choosing Dr. Lake as our officiant. I am even looking forward to our next marriage counseling session :)
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.
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.
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!
If I were to count three people in my spiritual walk as being instrumental, John Poortenga would easily be placed within this group. John has a gift for listening and then creating discerning words to compliment what he has heard. It's not enough to be a good listener, you have to be able to put pieces together and then articulate something meaningful, something true, with love. John did this for me at a critical time in my faith. John demonstrated again and again that his heart, his mind wanted to see people excel, even if it meant he would take a lesser role. If anyone has an opportunity to do any form of mentoring or counselling with John, I would snatch him up in a heartbeat. (In my time he wasn't bad at basketball or baseball either.)
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...
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.
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.
For me the most exciting thing about my experience with Revelation Counseling is that I am in a completely different place than when I started! Coming to revelation counseling has been one of the best decisions I've ever made for my mental, emotional and overall health. I know that the skills I've learned will last beyond the counseling and will help me get closer to my future and my best self.
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!
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 :)
