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!
An unexpected death in the family upended a number of things in my life. I needed some guidance to get back on track to run my business and tackle the new personal challenges I was facing. I was working with another counselor for a few months but did not find much value in my sessions. My wife found Karim so I decided to try one session. Needless to say, I really enjoyed Karim's approach. Karim has acted like a guide to help me identify, process and work on my challenges. I enjoyed his help so much that I also paid to attend a couple of the workshops he hosts outside of regular hours from time to time. I highly recommend talking to Karim at least once and see how you feel. Chances are, you will want to work with him.
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.
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.
We decided to try Connect2 Marriage as an engagement encounter and we've loved it. We would strongly recommend them.
Illana is a true blessing. My wife and I in were fortunate enough to have Illana join us in marriage in Lake Tahoe, CA. We had several meetings with Illana prior to the date, and each time she delved into the root of what marriage and togetherness meant to us. She incorporated our values, beliefs, and spirituality into the service, in a way we feel no one else could have. Illana was consistent, punctual, and professional in her planning and coordinating. She took the extra time to help us with the layout at the venue and did a wonderful job delegating at the rehearsal (which is not always an easy task, especially with young children). Illana has a constant smile, and is able communicate with people in a special way. We had so many people at our wedding that specifically complimented the ceremony. We feel this was greatly due to Illana's creativity and vision. Thank you Illana.

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!
Robert is an excellent therapist. He is always professional and dependable. I will most definitely use his services again. I found him extremely helpful.
Matthew has been a really great counselor to work with. He brings empathy and excitement to our relationship counseling sessions, and provides much needed insight to moments when we get caught up in our historic relational patterns. Our sessions are a good mix of hard work and play. Matthew always has ideas and exercises we can do to work with the material that arises. He is communicative and professional.

I am a survivor who God has saved to help other people. I have been homeless, divorced, unemployed, and have lived a dysfunctional life, but now I have been academically trained, have 19 years of sobriety, and love working with people.
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.
Families of every size turn to family and marriage counseling to help sort through their usually overwhelming everyday obstacles.
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.
Eager Worker - Whenever I enter the work field and prepare for the day, I am always in an upbeat mood to get whatever needs to be done. I noticed a lot of workplaces want fast pace, but even the worker's aren't even pacing themselves to a speed I would consider fast. So, I keep it upbeat and strive to get things done. Able to Be on Task - When on task, I fit the situation toward my work habits such as being neat, clean, organized, with flow of charisma, and punctual, and these are just some of the ethics I am portraying. You may not see other workers putting effort into promoting these kinds of ethics, but if want to see the skill I provide, analyzing other employees or employers will show you the difference I can make. Acceptance to Strive - The question that can hold you back when working is, "What drives you to work?" My answer is simple: the acceptance to strive. How can you work without a motivation to push you beyond limits? How can you become determined to stay committed to a job without being proud of what you've done? When i accept to strive, I accept to work. Communication's Negotiator - When I work, I have this helping habit. What I do is I ask them if I can help them. Some say no and some say yes, but what I want to establish with this is that when I communicate and negotiate, I do it all in a helping manner, so that anyone would come out happy. Currency Distributor - Distributing currency, I have the ability to process currency through objective. With this particular skill, what I do is I carefully place currency into whatever machine is used to distribute. Credit Saver - When it comes to credit, we all know how essential it can be, and saving these essentials causes some great production. Creditm when used potentiallym can result in a change toward success, which is something we should all want. Multitasking Initiator - Initiate on a task and multiple tasks is something I acquired through my years of academics, sports, and religious beliefs. I am a Buddhist, but I acknowledge all sorts of religions. Interactive Discusser - I love to have discussion, and I think this is one of my strong points when on the floor of the work field. Although discussions sometimes can lead off topic or get carried away, I will always love to discuss and at the same time interact. Counselor for Answers - Well, when times get rough and support is available to heal, I guide them through phases of healing. We have so many people not knowing answers to questions they have for the world. Well, as a counselor, you guide them to find the answer, just like counselors who have guided us before. Service of Profit - With this meaning, the service you provide will benefit both parties. Together, the efforts will begin to grow into a way of success, which will reach beyond.
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
