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!

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!

About

I offer one-on-one career transition/outplacement counseling including the following: * Asset analysis/career and goals assessment * Resume writing and editing * One-on-one counseling * Personal marketing strategies * Job search work flow and process training * Career and personal networking training * Communications and self-presentation evaluations and enhancement coaching (interview coaching and preparation) * Follow-up and support throughout I have spent over 15 years as a senior executive recruiter in the Silicon Valley where I have counseled and coached literally thousands of candidates and executive-level clients through their own career challenges. My own career has taken me from blue collar in the early '80s to white collar sales and consulting in the late '80s, moving into business management in the early '90s, and business ownership in the late '90s. The latter part of my career has seen me transition from sales manager to managing partner to V.P. to C.O.O, and even co-found a company and ownership, where I have been a vendor to a number of Fortune 500 companies such as Cisco, Sun Microsystems, Wells Fargo, etc. Every stage is wrought with unknown factors which can be scary, but if you replace fear and uncertainty with enthusiasm about the possibilities, times of transition can be acknowledged as the greatest opportunities for growth, and forward progress on your own career. I now work with both individuals and corporate clients alike as a career transition counselor, helping others to move in a positive direction towards the next phase of their own careers. Call me, and let's work together to prepare you for the opportunities that lay before you. Mark Fort

Pastor Mike has amazing skills as a counselor. He brings his many years of experience as a pastor and leader to the table with each session. He listens with empathy and compassion and has a true gift of wisdom. Mike is able to challenge when needed, while remaining encouraging and uplifting in his approach. His thoughtful insights often bring clarity and understanding when we have felt stuck or unsure. I highly recommend him for anyone seeking to improve their relationships and/or marriage.

About

I help people with depression, addictions/compulsions, anxiety, relationship problems, and many more issues. I have 36 years of experience. It's easy to talk to me whether you are 18 or 80. I feel great compassion for my clients and at the same time I trust that with a little help from me, they can help themselves. My sessions are 50 minutes long. In the beginning of therapy I recommend that you meet with me 1-2 times a week.
