When my fiancee and I were in search of a pre-marital counselor, we didn't know what to expect. We just knew it was best practice to do pre-marital counseling, so we did. The minute we met with Kim for an intro session, she was a kind, comforting presence that was able to get both me and my partner to easily share - something rare for my partner. Throughout our time working with Kim, she helped us hone in on issues within our relationship while discovering things about ourselves - individually - that we didn't realize were negatively affecting us. What we loved most about Kim was that she didn't just talk us through every problem we were working to solve but provided us with tools that we will be able to use for years to come. In our sessions, Kim provided great counseling with a sincere intention to set our marriage off on a strong foundation of self-awareness and clear communication to build our relationship upon. Thank you, Kim, for all of your guidance and support!
My experience has been amazing. I had been looking for a Spanish/Mexican speaking therapist for a long time and I am so glad I found her. She creates a cozy environment where I feel safe and confident to talk about my personal life. I am very pleased with her professionalism and her availability. I would definitely recommend her.
She really cared about us and our marriage. Ama spent the time to understand our relationship and our goals, and created a program and service that were uniquely ours.
Danielle is so present and aware that I can just relax into her coaching. She allows me to find my way by directing to me to my inner experience so I can have profound breakthroughs over and over. She also sets an amazing example of a divine union in her own relationship that continually inspires me. Thanks Danielle! Lorraine Platt, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist
When I started working with Shannon I was struggling with deep unhappiness and uncertainty about my life, as well as my relationships with the people in my life. I was skeptical of talking to anyone because of several prior bad experiences with counselors and psychiatrists. But I called anyway out of desperation and I'm very glad in retrospect that I did. Shannon helped me consciously identify things that are important to me and things I wanted to change. With Shannon I learned to proactively become aware of and eliminate negative, harmful, or just plain not useful patterns of thinking and instead treat myself using positive reinforcement. These changes seems small and simple but their impact is deep. I also benefited from her wise perspective on managing relationships with others. By using what I've worked on with Shannon, I feel more clear, capable, reflective, and self-aware. This in turn has helped me focus, enjoy my work, and improve how I view my relationships with my family and coworkers. I'm all around much happier and proud of myself. In working with Shannon, I was impressed by her kindness, her breadth of understanding, her proactive approach, and her focus on ensuring her clients improve in a quantifiable, verifiable way. I would and do recommend her to anyone looking for guidance through rough times, especially if you're looking for quick and concrete practices to implement to improve your life immediately.
Maureen worked with me following the birth of my second child, dealing initially with post partum issues and then with a broader range of issues related to marriage, family relationships, and parenting struggles, and attitudes toward self-care. I have been very happy with our sessions because overtime I have felt them to be very productive. Maureen listens well, and seems to digest and then provide very useful, practical, concrete ideas and steps to take to deal with real situations as they arise. She also helps me work through more general attitudes and ideas regarding challenges in my life.
Lisa helped me uncover and take action on my life vision. Every area of my life has seen big changes in alignment with that vision. Ive strengthened my marriage, stepped away from a 25 year career in Human Resources, built a company Im passionate about and found balance in my life. Lisas approach is no nonsense and honest. She has an amazing way of keeping you focused on your dream, one step at a time next thing you know youre living it.
A great experience. We recommend Krista to anyone who's looking for Marriage and Family Therapy services.
Illana officiated our wedding, and there is no way that our experience could have been better! The opportunity to have Illana marry us and coach us through vows beforehand was a big part of our choice to get married when we did. Illana had been working with us as a coach and counselor for a couple months before we asked her to officiate our marriage. We wanted something special and very intimate -- really, we wanted a ceremony that was deeply about us committing to one another and our lives together, rather than pomp and circumstance...or frankly a lot of people and planning. Illana was so positive and deeply excited for us, which was great because it wasn't impersonal -- by that time, she already knew our challenges and gifts as a couple, and so she was the perfect person to ask (and only one we would have asked). When the time came, we asked to be married on New Years Day -- the week BEFORE. (Yes, I'm serious). Although she planned to be out of town, Illana offered that we join her up on the coast where she was staying, where she recommended the most INCREDIBLE location. She also happened to know a fantastic female photographer who also said 'yes' to our last-minute when-inspiration-strikes wedding...! We trusted Illana to create the ceremony as she envisioned it, and anyone who knows her would trust her with the same (although my sense is she is also would have been very open to collaboration). The biggest gift was how Illana coached us in our own vows -- she had us see them in a spiritual sense, as a practice we are committing to rather than a promise that can be broken or kept. This has lent so much richness not just to the ceremony but to our lives in the weeks since. I'm HAPPY to share Illana with the world, and I've already recommended her -- and her way of looking at marriage -- to several friends. Truly a GIFT!
Diana is an incredibly warm, empathic, playful, and nonjudgmental therapist. She really accepts you as you are and whole heartedly wants to make changes with you. I am always impressed by her ability to make sense of things and reflect it back to me in an alternative way. She has opened my eyes to so many patterns and defenses I have, and has done it in a way that felt kind and safe. I would really recommend her to anyone I know.
Tony was awesome! A massage therapist who works for us could not make an appointment. So I was frantically searching for someone to cover. Tony was able to take the appointment within the hour and was professional and skilled during the massage. He received the best rating!
I have known Melissa a long time and she is one of the best therapists that I have worked with. She is patient, understanding, and is a great listener. Melissa is highly skilled and has been able to help me work through a variety of issues. She has a clear passion for her career and truly cares about each of her clients. If you are looking for a therapist, look no further. I absolutely recommend giving her a call!
Nancy is a very sensitive and caring person and an excellent therapist. She has an innate talent for the job and is widely recognized and appreciated. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
Robert is an excellent therapist. He is always professional and dependable. I will most definitely use his services again. I found him extremely helpful.
Dr. Lopes has been my therapist on and off over the past 5 years. She had helped me overcome my depression and anxiety, and eventually helped me through a very difficult divorce. I can truly say that with Dr. Lopes's help I have been able to turn my life around. I feel blessed to have a friend refer me to her and I do not hesitate to recommend her to others who are struggling and need unconditional support and guidance... She really cares about her clients, no exceptions.
Deb is a life saver. She has worked with my daughter and I around very difficult adoption and trauma issues. Not only has she created a safe environment for my daughter to disclose her history and anxieties but she has also provided me with exceptional resources, education and support. Her interventions have made a world of difference for us. I'm a therapist and have worked with numerous child therapist. Deb is by far the best!!
Families of every size turn to family and marriage counseling to help sort through their usually overwhelming everyday obstacles.
I have a wide range of experience. One of the specialities I have is working with those who particularly seek to integrate their Christian faith with their therapy work.
I provide counseling for individuals, couples and families who are struggling with transitions. You can explore developmental stages and dynamic techniques with a seasoned therapist of 20 years. This includes stress reduction, communication styles, family of origin and life cycle techniques.
I like to think that it's because I bring humor to my work. Humor allows us to identify difficulties or challenges apart from ourselves and have more clarity overcoming them.
I accept family court referrals and have expereince in that arena. Additionally, I accept Blue Shilld and United Healthcare Insurance
