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
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.
Helped with Relationship Counseling. My girl friend and I were going through a difficult time. We heard from others about the benefit of choosing a life coach over a MFT or a Psychologist. Our problems were communication about here and now. We didn't want to have to spend so much time individually sitting in "couch therapy " with a psychologist. Patti gets right to the underline issues. Her experience in this field is second to none. Our relationship including that of our teenage children that each of us has from our previous marriages has gotten so much better. Everyone in our family has benefited from we call her " our life coach" She is so easy to talk to. My fear and anxiety trusting to talk to someone with our issues went away the moment we met her. Our relationship has never been better thanks to Patti
So far things have been really good. STEPHANIE is amazing. She had helped me save my family and marriage. I know we still have a long road ahead of us but with Stephanie's guidance I'm sure that my wife and I will be able to work things out.working. Stephanie has been a blessing. I look forward to continue working with her. I would highly recommend her to any couple that's having a difficult time
Kelli is, in a word, amazing. She has been so helpful to me and my family as we work to improve our relationships, and to make our family life the best it can be. She listens carefully, asks thoughtful and thought-provoking questions, and works to help us develop strategies that are innovative and effective. She is kind, caring, and very easy to talk to. Our family has grown stronger and healthier as a direct result of her counsel. She is a fantastic therapist and I would recommend her wholeheartedly.
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.
Jaimi is one of the most balanced people I have ever met: she has advised me on a variety of issues including my marriage, my business and relationships with friends. Every time I have had a problem to discuss with Jaimi it has been met with a listening ear and an open-mind. She has helped me think differently and approach challenges in a new way; I can't recommend her more highly.
Cindy is a warm and caring therapist. She is able to connect quickly to a client and provide empathy and support. Cindy assists clients with a variety of problems and struggles. While working with Cindy, I discovered that she is able to utilize a wide variety of skills and knowledge to create meaningful and positive change in the lives of her adult and youth clients. I strongly recommend Cindy as a Marriage and Family Therapist.
After months with several disappointing counselors, we found Dr. Jeanne. Her approach is impressively different for 3 reasons: 1) she got to essence of the issue -- quickly went beyond the "superficial layers" and discovered the "issue behind the issue", 2) she is extremely fast -- after every session we experienced immediate, significant shifts and although sometimes this stuff can be difficult, she made it palatable in a way that both my husband and I appreciated 3) she does so much more than marriage counseling -- after we got through some "big" issues, she coached us to resolve a number of important business issues that we have been struggling with for some time. But the bottom line is that I can honestly say, that she did in fact help us save our marriage. The fourth nice sugar on top is that she has a very soothing and calm manner, making the difficult issues that are so hard to face, more palatable and easier to approach. I highly recommend her, she will save you considerable time, pain and money -- and most importantly, she gets results.
Brad officiated my wedding and did an incredible job. I'm Christian and my wife's family is Jewish yet he was able to comfortably include everyone in the ceremony which everyone loved and appreciated.
I have been to many marriage therapists and while my marriage unraveled right before Dr. Price, she genuinely cared for both of us and without her I would not have been able to make it through this. Her understanding is coupled with exceptional education and enough heartbreaking experiences in her personal life to truly be both empathetic and guiding. Linda is truly one of the rare councerlors who could save your marriage if gone to soon enough and will help you save yourself and family if too late. I have referred many couples and individuals to her and ALL have sent glowing reports back to me.
So happy I found a therapist that understands what I go through. Dr. Maxine your great 😆
Matthew and I knew we wanted to marry and blend our families. When we found out we were able to have the older children live with us, we felt it would be better for our family to solidify with Marriage. We called on our friend Victoria, as an ordained Minister, she understood us, and knew we were committed to each other and our family. Victoria married Matthew and I in an intimate, touching ceremony where we had our first date. Victoria touched on reminders for us of love, commitment and God. We are so thankful she was there for us in this exciting time of our lives. Thank you Victoria!!
Working with Bernard at Los Angeles Counseling Center has truly been a rewarding experience. I have been enlightened, challenged, affirmed and relieved to spend time exploring my beliefs and behavior in my marriage with a professional who has helped me stay curious, gentle and patient with myself and my partner. I would recommend anyone willing to do the hard yet inspiring and rewarding work that counseling facilitates to meet with Bernard.
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 am a licensed marriage and family therapist and professional clinical counselor in Los Angeles. I work with adults, teens, couples and families on all kinds of emotional and relationship issues. I have a particular interest in couples counseling, family therapy, life transitions, career development and grief and loss issues. I also enjoy working with creative people whose lives are maybe out of balance. Change is difficult but necessary in life. As human beings we tend to fantasize about reinventing ourselves or the situations that we created. We wish there was a magic wand that could transform us. I work with this desire for change and help people process the hard places that they don't want to go to alone. I believe that doing this work will provide a richer and more meaningful life. I bring a direct, grounded approach to helping people with their day-to-day situations, while also drawing upon my training in psychodynamic therapy to work towards lasting change. My style is flexible, informal and gently confrontational. I bring warmth and compassion to help open up possibilities for people. It's exciting when something that seemed unattainable begins to seem reachable. My role as a therapist is to create a safe, trusting and comfortable environment, where we become curious together about what is not working in your life and find new ways to approach situations.
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!
As a licensed family and marriage therapist, Robert C. Jameson concentrates on assisting clients in understanding and overcoming issues, like limiting beliefs, boundaries, relationships, love, anxiety, depression, hurt and anger, to name a few. During his years of private practice, Mr. Jameson discovered it is beneficial to provide many of his clients "homework" in the form of handouts, to aid their work while in session. The Keys to Joy-Filled Living was created from his handouts of tested and proven exercises and methods.
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.
I am passionate about healthy marriages and thriving relationships, so I most enjoy working with dating, engaged, and married couples. I teach each couple how to assertively ask for what they want and need, how to communicate effectively by allowing their partner to feel safe, and how to resolve conflict in a constructive way that respects, rather than wounds, one another. If you are facing challenging circumstances in your relationship, I believe these can be an opportunity to strengthen your connection with your partner and draw you closer together, instead of driving you apart. For dating and engaged couples, I am a certified facilitator for the prepare/enrich program and recommend couples considering marriage to complete this valuable instrument. We use your data to identify strengths and growth areas, as well as explore opinions about core issues in marriage to find agreement and negotiate differences. I offer day, evening, and weekend sessions, as well as a free phone consultation to briefly discuss your situation and answer any questions you have as you evaluate options for counseling.
