After visiting in meeting with a couple of other marriage counselors in the recent past I can honestly say that dr. Lake was a breath of fresh air. In searching for a marriage counselor one looks for someone who is unbiased and open to both parties man and woman; and that is exactly what we found in Dr Lake. Our first meeting proved that he was wanting to know each of us as an individual, our feelings our thoughts and what we wanted. And that is what he bases his valuation and sessions off of. Highly recommended from husband and wife. Tony C
Our first time experiencing marriage counseling. With just our first session we've learned so much. Michelle explains everything so well from a man and woman's point of view. Really looking forward to our sessions with her.
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
Stephanie wonderful and she is helping me and my husband get over this dreaded hump in our marriage. She gives a safe space and a neutral environment that allows for us both to be comfortable.
Kelli is an amazing therapist and has helped me through countless issues and problems over the past few years. Being a mom to a child with special needs, life can get hairy and stressful. It can take a toll on your marriage and affect your entire family. Kelli has given me the tools and strategies to handle my stress and frustrations and help bring my husband and I closer together. She is extremely welcoming and kindhearted and has a way of making you feel like you are talking with an old friend. I would highly recommend Kelli as a therapist, it was the best decision I ever made.
We couldn't possibly praise our experience with WIll highly enough! Will has tremendous wisdom and insight. He has a revolutionary approach to marriage counseling!
When people ask me about Pedro, this is what I tell them, "Hire Pedro Baez, work with him assiduously, and change your life immeasurably for the better." Pedro is a forthright, honest, and loving coach who will act like a sextant as you steer your life towards the direction you want to go, revealing the innumerable choices in your journey and the transformative beauty of the experience. I've worked with him for almost two years, and this is the fruit: 1. Wrote a well-received book. 2. Recovered from an abusive marriage. 3. Learned to be less reactive, spot dysfunctional cycles, and shift relationships so that they are healthier. I am grateful for the work we have done.
Rose Rigole changed my family's life. Rose not only helped my husband and I discover new meaning in our relationship but gave us the tools to overcome the everyday roadblocks marriages find themselves up against. These tools have helped us keep our love the main focus and not on the distractions life throws us which at the moment seem so important. Ethical, diplomatic and caring, her approach never made either of us feel like the "bad guy".
Mary Jean brings a special sort of serene magic to a ceremony. One that calms the bride and groom while bringing all their loved ones' focus to the ceremony, culminating this beautiful energy bonding two people in marriage for life. Can not recommend Mary Jean highly enough.
So happy I found a therapist that understands what I go through. Dr. Maxine your great 😆
Rachel is very warm and inviting. She was prompt in responding and was able to schedule me right away. I would recommend her to my own close friends and family!
We found Allan to be genuine and sincere. He has a superior gift of verbal communication. When he speaks, he connects with the audience in a real way. We walked away from every discussion with additional life and marriage skills.
In aproximately 2003 my husband and I were counseling with Mark. We were desperate for help, understanding, and relief. We literally felt something destroying us inwardly, confusing every thing we believed in. This one thing we could not overcome was killing our marriage. After searching books, talking to other counselors, going to marriage conferences.... really we couldn't quite put our finger on it or get to the root. However Mark was discerning, compassionate, non judgmental and real. He was able to help my husband let his guard down and be honest, open and willing ;by the power of the Holy Spirit working through him. We did counsel for a good several months but it was do to my husbands unwillingness to be completely honest in the beginning. I will never forget that evening when my husband returned home form what may have been one of their last sessions. I was nearly afraid there was such a notable difference in his eyes and his tone of voice and his entire demeanor. He was calm, he was changed, transformed he was peaceful, He was free! The shame, the guilt was gone. His eyes were clear , His heart was lifted. I had my husband back in a way I had not ever known him. God really used mark to bring about a deliverance we never knew was available. This was 12 years ago. Of course like anything one must continue to do what is required to keep the results achieved. If we were talking weight loss , one would continue to eat healthy and exercise. Lets just say we can use some review it has been awhile now (13 years or more) and sometimes a refresher course is needed. I plan to contact Mark for a check up. I believe the Lord led me to find his business I did not know existed. At the time we counseled, it was more casual not a business. I am so happy to have found him after all these years. I highly recommend Mark as he is a great tool in God's hand to bring loving compassionate help to those hurting and bound up by their past and own short comings. Blessings to this business!
I am a licensed marriage and family therapist located in La Canada Flintridge. I am convenient to La Crescenta, Glendale, Eagle Rock, Burbank, Altadena, Pasadena and many Los Angeles area communities. I specialize in providing play-and-talk therapy to children, teens and families. I also specialize in treating trauma including physical, sexual or emotional trauma. I am passionate about helping my clients thrive again in their daily lives.
Sometimes, life just doesn't go the way we want. Too often, we find ourselves stuck in a bad place, leaving us hurt, lonely, angry or depressed, just plain out of control. Why is it that we do the things we dont want to do, and we dont do the things that we know are good for us? I provide a confidential, non-judgmental place to re-engineer your life. I will strive to help you experience growth from the pain of life and empower you to move forward, better able to face the inevitable problems that come your way. I look forward to the opportunity to partner with you, to help you clarify what you want from your life and how to go about getting it. My primary area of interest is in working with couples, although I do work with individuals also. This includes pre-marital counseling, communication difficulties, recovery from affairs and sex addiction, and parenting together after divorce. In 2011, I've completed a certification in sex addiction therapy (CSAT®) through Patrick Carnes. The CSAT® program is fast becoming the industry's standard certification for all therapists who are working with individuals who suffer from addictive and compulsive sexual behaviors. I've received a Master of Arts degree in clinical psychology from Azusa Pacific University and am a marriage and family-therapist-registered intern (IMF#64851) under the supervision of Curtis Miller, Psy.D., D. Min, MFT#31636. I am trained to use the prepare/enrich inventories, which is a comprehensive couple assessment tool for pre-marital counseling.
My practice is based on a holistic approach that focuses on the behavioral, cognitive, social, emotional and spiritual aspects of the individual's life. I have over thirty years of experience. Healing should not take years. I work to help you identify and heal core issues, and develop a gentle practice that can accelerate your healing. Clients I have served have said that my holistic and integrative process has done more for them than other therapies they have tried over the years. Individuals and couples tell me they have been able to identify core issues, and heal by practicing focused, individualized healing techniques. I have found over the past thirty years of helping individual, couples and families that healing occurs quicker and with more lasting results when people learn to develop a practice that is consistent and motivating, and which produces valid results. I also have years of experience working with people who have various developmental disabilities, such as Asperger syndrome, autism, and pervasive developmental disorder.
I provide marriage counseling for couples at risk of divorce or who need to learn how to effectively communicate, set boundaries, and assert oneself. I also do individual therapy for relationship issues, depression, anxiety, chemical dependency, and with a specialty working with eating disorders.
I have worked with hospice, helping individuals and families entering their end of life transition. I have found that by paying particular attention to the steps of grief, people can continue to grow and build healthy relationships even while coming to terms with a terminal illness. It is important for everyone to be able to break through old patterns to say what needs to be said. I have since transitioned to working with individuals with eating disorders, which reflect other underlying issues and trauma. I assisted many clients replace self-destructive behaviors (eating disorders, self-harm, substance abuse, and other maladaptive coping skills) with acceptance and self-love. I believe therapy can benefit everyone who sincerely wishes to see a change in his or her life. Appropriate therapy can relieve feelings of distress, increase satisfaction in interpersonal relationships, create skills for managing anxiety, and help grow greater personal awareness and insight. Difficult changes have no specific design, but with help, you can learn from them, grow with them, and be better because of them.
As a licensed family and marriage therapist, Robert C. Jameson concentrates on assisting clients in understanding and overcoming issues, like limiting beliefs, boundaries, relationships, love, anxiety, depression, hurt and anger, to name a few. During his years of private practice, Mr. Jameson discovered it is beneficial to provide many of his clients "homework" in the form of handouts, to aid their work while in session. The Keys to Joy-Filled Living was created from his handouts of tested and proven exercises and methods.
I'm licensed and ordained clergy. I am able to perform weddings in the state of CA. I also offer premarital counseling upon request.
