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!
Tammy worked with my spouse and me to build trust and allow vulnerability for a greater connection and much personal growth. We are deeply indebted to her for her support and guidance throughout the process.
Pastor Mike performed premarital counseling for us, and officiated at our wedding. His guidance and counsel were invaluable. He brought us into a deeper understanding of each other, and of God's plan for our marriage. He brought the perfect balance of truth and humor to our wedding ceremony. We are grateful for the help he gave us in building a strong foundation for our marriage. We just celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary!
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!
When I finally found my passion and began my business I was truly excited but overwhelmed. I was starting a new chapter in my life and didn't know where to begin. I was stepping in to new territory. I know what my goals are but needed guidance on how to reach them. Finding Misa was a gift from God and every session I am inspired to do more and more. She makes it easy, one step at a time. She has transformed my public speaking ability and inspires me to be a great business woman. I relate to her and that's am amazing thing. I'm so happy to have her a part of my life because I am confident working with her will make me a more confident and amazing business woman. I would recommend her to anyone.
"Great Life Coach - Sherry is so real, not just spirtual but down to earth. She was my marriage counselor now my life coach, just talking to her makes me feel so much better. I love her so much that I refer her to all my friends and family. If you want your relationship to make sense I strongly reccommend talking to her." ~ Richelle Jernigan
I cannot be specific as that is privileged but the assisngment she gave me has helped so tremendously and I hope further sessions will improve my issues.
