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.

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. I’ve strengthened my marriage, stepped away from a 25 year career in Human Resources, built a company I’m passionate about and found balance in my life. Lisa’s 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 you’re living it.

After two years together, my boyfriend and I have been contemplating couples therapy. I always thought couples counseling was just for married people who despised each other but I couldn't have been more wrong. After just one session, I feel better. We have been learning the importance of communication and how to rebuild trust especially in a long distance relationship. Diana gave us direct feedback on what we were doing and how we can improve individually and as a couple. We had good takeaways and feel better about how to comfort each other if similar issues arise again.

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!

Arya is one of the most gifted guided counselors I’ve ever met. His astute awareness to key into what’s being spoken and what’s beneath the words is one of the things that make him such an effective marriage and relationship counselor. He has a gentle way of showing you the way to your truth by asking the right questions or roleplaying with yourself or your partner. His process is nonintimidating and creative which is especially helpful under the circumstances of dealing with years of sensitive issues. My boyfriend and I were at a crossroad of parting ways when we took the leap to try couples counseling and coaching instead of psychotherapy. The results of our time invested with Arya have made us whole again and more in love than ever before. Thank you Arya! You are one of a kind! Nancy

I have worked with Don Waxman for almost two years and found him to be the most effective therapist I have used. Don has the ability to be empathetic and directive in a way that works for me. His use of somatic tools with me has be dramatic in my self exploration and healing. He is very knowledgeable and creative and has great set of tools to help you get to your goals.

    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!!

      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.
