As an educator, one honors continuous learning and growth. In the pursuit of an Master’s Degree in Instructional Technology, I felt the desire to grow in my professional life and make a drastic change. To begin this process I reached out to a career expert, Mark Langford. Leaving a profession with no specific future profession identified was scary and discouraged by many of my peers, however, I knew there was something better out there for me. Mark helped me first by figuring out who I was. What did I want? What were the things that I wanted in a career? Mark helped me to dig deep into my personality, look at my “weaknesses” and begin overcoming them, reevaluating or removing them. Once we had determined my career and life “must-haves” we began exploring careers that met those wants and suited my strengths and skills. The best fit? Instructional Desig in the corporate realm. We began preparing my resume to best impress future employers and began honing my interview skills. I developed my networks and became more confident in myself and my skills. Changing careers and “embracing my career identity crisis” has led me to my dream career, being an Instructional Designer. I could not have done this without Mark Langford and his vast knowledge and experience in career counseling. Mark helped me to develop, not only as a professional, but as a person.

Emile has literally helped me change my life. When I met him I was 15lbs heavier and in a very negative place. With his guidance and support I've completely changed my life. He never gave up on me, and his belief in me helped me build confidence in myself to change. We not only worked on the body (amazing workouts and amazing nutritional counseling!), but also the mind and the spirit. True transformation!! Training with Emile has been an incredible journey and it's not even close to being over!!

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

Fawn has been coaching me for several months now and it has been a life changing experience. I have never had a coach before Fawn and decided to give it a try because I needed a boost in motivation and some help moving into another career. I was skeptical of the whole coaching thing at first but I am curious by nature and the first session is free so I thought, "why not"? Normally I'll spend a whole day pondering and planning a project and many times not really accomplish much, but in 90 min with Fawn and her "laser focus" approach we always come up with a clear plan of attack. I always walk away feeling supercharged and motivated to take the appropriate steps towards my goals. Sometimes we all need someone to help us organize our thoughts and hold us accountable for getting things done. At no time I feel as if she is telling me what to do. Rather she is great at knowing exactly the questions to ask so that I can reach the solution on my own. I can talk with her about everything from work to relationships as well as my personal challenges. Thanks Fawn! I look forward to continuing our journey together.

Therapy never quite made a difference for me in the past, and believe me I really wanted it to. Samantha’s approach is so completely different and more personal then anything I experienced before that it has profoundly impacted my life in a way I always wished therapy would have. Unlike others, she helped me understand my life as a whole - and helped me develop a sense of self-compassion I never before realized would be so instrumental in my self-acceptance and self-growth. I learned to appreciate what it really means to be a growing human-being with Samantha and I learned to step back and see the whole picture of my life instead of just chopped up and seperate events. Some are good at making you “think” they understand you, but with Samantha one “feels” it. Best of all, she feels like a friend that really relates and not a detached doctor taking suspicious notes that is always at an arms length. I only wish I had met her sooner.

Dr. Ty T.
Verified review

I came to Oliver at Verbal Ninja ahead of a big speech that had career and even life changing potential. I was speaking to a large group of fellow doctors, several of whom were what you might call “celebrity doctors.” Frankly, I wanted to upstage them. I myself have an acting background but have always had a lot of stage fright for public speaking. I worked with Oliver over the month leading up to the big event. I knew what I wanted to say, just not quite how to say it. He made my words sound like nothing I’ve ever heard before—yes, that good. Yet it still sounded like me…I felt comfortable and spontaneous. He sort of gave me the voice that I always thought I had inside, if that makes any sense. He also coached my delivery, voice, gestures, movement, eye contact, etc. etc. His tricks to conquer stage fright—especially the psychological aspect—are brilliant. The result? I think I killed it that night. Even my billionaire friend who came to see me said I spoke better than a lot of people he sees that speak on a regular basis. Even the owner of the company had this to say: “Thanks for everything, the event was great and we were very happy that you gave that speech, it was amazing! Not only the way you presented (like an actor) but also the content was very emotional, some tears were shed from Melissa.“ People came up to me afterwards and shared how I changed their view on aesthetics and really motivated them. All the “famous doctors” who spoke alongside me on the panel were super impressed as well. In short, Oliver came to me highly recommended. He leaves me even more highly recommended. If the stakes are high, he’s the guy.

Patricia was fantastic! I was in need of both energy healing and nutrition counseling, and Patricia was there every step of the way. Her energy healing was deeply helpful in clearing some past emotional trauma. In terms of the nutrition counseling, she provided me with weekly goals that we devised together to accomplish. She really worked with me to figure out what MY goals were based on my health history and to provide the support and vast knowledge to achieve those goals. Her supply of information was extremely enlightening and new to me, but she made it not only easy to understand, but fun to implement. I have had more fun working with food since I worked with Patricia. She doesn't teach you to diet and restrict your food, but she teaches you how to enjoy your food and get the most out of it. Most importantly, she teaches you to really enjoy it and make the best choices for yourself everyday. It helped me, a sufferer of frequent migraines, to lessen the frequency of those migraines to almost nonexistent. I can't recommend her services more highly, and I look forward to continuing to work with her!

About

We offer Buddhist-based counseling and therapy. Try a non-traditional alternative. The Spiritual Adulthood Therapy & Counseling Project is a Buddhist-based, more alternative Asian approach to relating with your "self". "What is accepted by the majority of people does not mean it is real." - The Buddha, 500 BC We provide private, insightful, one-on-one therapy and mindfulness life coaching and relationship counseling for marriages, couples, all kinds of partnerships, workplace and friendships. For emotional and communication breakdowns, we offer "reaching out to reach deep in". "The lotus has its roots in the dank dark mud, Grows up through the cloudy deep water, And finally rises to the surface. It blooms into perfect harmony and purity in the sunlight. It is like the mind unfolding into perfect joy and wisdom..." - The Lotus Sutra Please go now to our counseling blog site; the best info is there! You will find many more of your FAQs responded there. It's really an interesting site. Take your time to graze around in it. Hopefully, you'll certainly know a lot more about what you need when you've done some reading at the blog. The Spiritual Adulthood Therapy & Counseling Project is located at Santa Monica, CA 90405; near Santa Monica College. For our email and phone number, see the service window. The best phone times to contact us are noon to 6 p.m. from Monday to Friday. The initial phone contact is always the best and most immediate. Thanks, Akasa Levi, DhMA ( D.Min.) Counseling Supervisor "Take the first step in faith. You don't have to see the whole staircase; just take the first step." - Martin Luther King At Spiritual Adulthood, we apply the Buddhist psycho-spiritual approach to the mind. "The journey itself is the destination!" We offer a uniquely combined counseling: an innovative, holistic, spiritual variation of the mind-therapies, based in practical, quite highly scientific Buddhist wisdom combined with a gentle, accepting, gradual compassionate view towards all beings. "Buddhist mindfulness-based guidance" with its long humanitarian history, is a well-respected ancient Asian, non-religious, more spiritual option to the regular standard model of Western clinical therapies. Buddhism is not "religious", it is Asian-psychology based. You certainly can be a sincere, deeply spiritual person without being religious, without having any higher authorities and that helps to truly open the heart and mind to trust and sensibility. This is not a licensed psychotherapy! Please visit our blog for the details and the disclaimer. We assist in healing the mind in the midst of these very edgy, scary, confusing, disappointing, over-driven, tense, survival-stressed, anxious uncertain times. Buddhist Inner Work: "Therapy" is not found in even the best of books or CDs, or on the internet. It's a live interactive relating process; it always has been. Interactively, that's how the problems started. Well, that's how they have to resolve! For the therapy, two people sit down and emphatically work on one of them. It's living, live, dynamic and face to face. This time around, it's a cooperative dyad of two people who care, and are in on this. Therapy counseling is a relationship in its truest form, and that's always disturbingly risky for the wounded spirit to change. "The greatest risk is not taking one." Spiritual Adulthood is offering a much more radical form of counseling, more geared to people in the whole spectrum of contemporary creative arts and the best of new thought-minded sensibilities. Maybe it is more green, liberal, or cultural and creative. Maybe it is just you. The Spiritual Adulthood exploration encourages and supports a very eclectic "inquiry into self" practice, combining the cool, calm observation approach of traditional, quiet mindfulness meditation with effective "crazy wisdom" irrationality of Zen-mind realizations that can cognitively short circuit the common, but so obsessive self-involved, self-absorbed and self-identified ego mind. "One easily made, very common mistake is to think that your reality is "the" reality. You must always be prepared to bravely leave your reality for a greater one." - Meeraji We encourage highly inquisitive, progressive-minded people, with a natural, deep love of learning who relish the abstract, and even the absurd and have a genuine taste for the indefinable existential stuff. Buddhist psychology is playful too. "...ever noticed that it's always now." - Alan Watts He suggests that you repeatedly keep noticing this many times a day. Usually, the people who do eventually come to us are more explorative, curious, do have a more active intellect and are innately, intensely inquisitive people by their nature. There are not ordinary Americans. The "inner search", "the quest" and "the mystery" are the understanding of it all. They are people who relish the "safari" of it, the search, the inquiry, the brave quest of it, hurting or not, rather than popular ideas and packaged prescriptions just served-up and ready to eat. There is no quick fix. Enlightened freedom is experiential. It is not just a home-deliverable product. For each of us, all growth is a life-long psychological pilgrimage, experienced through a compassionate spiritual heart that includes live, full, rich relationship experiences with all other living beings. Question: "Grandfather, what is destiny?" Destiny is every step we are taking and going through right now to get there. "So, you really must consciously choose and make the choice of good spirits to re-choose again and again to openly talk truth with someone and keep it up. Keep it up to openly keep talking with someone. This is to be open to trust in gradually letting it all arise and unfold, messy or tidy, depressed or distressed. We all have these feelings. It's nothing new." - Grandfather Bearheart, contemporary Creek Elder "Eighty percent of success is just showing up." - Woody Allen Go ahead, and get into some quality counseling or therapy. You are really being heard here or somewhere that they will really take a deep caring to listen to you and really, really hear you and that is a very courageous move on your part: to move yourself into a counseling setting. It just may be the right place for you to start. Be very welcome to inquire more about us, as you search out where to do this inner work. Please read some more on this site. Buddhist-based wisdom offers compassionate, effective alternative approaches to relating with your "self" and all other living beings. Awaken the "compassionate insight" that is naturally deep within you and within mostly everyone. This is a liberal-minded therapy for intelligent, sensitive, intellectual and gifted, creative people who are often odd, often wonderfully offbeat, yet are now very discomforted, unhappy people. We offer an empathic, warm Asian-style of alternative treatment of mind well-being that just may be a more natural, truly effective, non-traditional approach. We are offering another possibility as a workable therapy approach for you. "The privilege of a lifetime is being truly who you are." - Joseph Campbell Phone us, and let's really take a few minutes together to talk on the phone and find out a bit more about what's going on within you. There are no obligations! It's a free phone consultation! Please go to our blog site and read a bit. There are a bundle of appointment details there and some sensible, solid good recommendations on how to even approach the idea of beginning some serious counseling or therapy, but there are no promises, no guarantees. Each individual situation is different and certainly, effectiveness may vary; yet it may be worth giving it a try. "And then the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom"- Anais Nin Buddhist therapy has been done very effectively for 2,557 years. "As human beings, our greatness lies not so much in being able to remake the world, as in being able to remake ourselves. Become the changes you want to see in the world." - Mahatma Gandhi This can be done. Give it and you a chance! If you know someone else in your life who just may also benefit by our offerings, be very welcome to put them in phone touch with us. We offer a free phone consultation, but please ask them to visit our blog-site first. We also offer: * The Laughing Buddha Sangha Buddhist meditation classes and retreats. Visit our "Buddha-blog" meditation site. * The Zen Men group. Good men are becoming even better men! Men's inner growth groups explore a man's deeper core issues. Every guy could use being in a men's group at some time in his life. Men are learning to trust and support each other in making important life changes.

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.
