I had the privilege to hear Dr. Ira Lake of Imtasik Family Counseling Services speak on How to make the Most of your life. He is an inspirational man and his talk gave me much encouragement having listened to how he overcame his own childhood challenges. We all were laughing one minute and moved by his faith and compassion the next. Iras enthusiasm was infectious and engaged the entire group throughout his entire message. Dr. Ira Lake is worthy of the highest praise for motivating people to push harder to improve their quality of life. I left the luncheon with an improved attitude and blessed for this opportunity to have listened to him speak.
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.
Mike Acker delivered an amazing wedding sermon. Not only was it professional and well planned but he delivered it with passion and a touch of humor. My wife and I also went through marriage counseling with Mike which we find reverting back to on a daily basis. We definitely recommend Mike Acker for your special day.
Cristi really came through for our teenage daughter during a crisis, giving us immeasurable support and guidance.
I went to see Paul because I needed counseling, I didnt know he was a hypnotherapist. He called me right away and I could tell he really cares. He explained his technique and was very personable with a great sense of humor. He truly believed that he could help me. When I went to his office I was completely hopeless but Paul sat down with me to reassure me that I have a bright future ahead of me. I feel a LOT better after seeing him. This was different than a regular therapy session, and it worked a lot more effectively than just talking everything out. Somehow it really worked and afterwards I felt ready to take more responsibility for my life!
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!
As a coach and mentor, he understood what I needed to grow. He listened well and created environments where I felt safe. He asked questions and drew out what was really important to me and then encouraged me to act in light of those principles and goals. John has a tremendous ability to see potential, and he saw in me what I didn't dare believe. Beyond seeing it though, he helped create a plan for my continued development. As an obstacle-remover John's guidance is a gift to anyone who feels stuck and is seeking to take the next steps in their growth. He led me through a leadership development process 5 years ago that I am seeking to emulate in my relationships with young adults today. John is a master at mentoring and has forever changed the course of my life with his thoughtful questions, bold encouragements, and gracious affirmations.
Murray was very experienced and professional with helping my husband and I get a better understanding of one another. Our relationship was strained over the course of several disagreements on key topics, but Murray helped provide us with some simple but powerful tools in order to work out our problems as a couple. His guidance and fair approach made sure we were both comfortable in speaking our mind. We were able to rebuild trust and repair the damaged foundation of our marriage at the end of Murray's counseling sessions. We would not hesitate to recommend him to a close friend if we saw they were having similar issues.
Pastor Charlie was such a blessing to us. When my friend's dad who is a pastor wasn't able to perform our ceremony we were left scrambling to find someone. Being christians and wanting a christian wedding ceremony I didn't want to just pick any officiant. I was really hesitant to find someone online but we are so thankful for Pastor Charlie. He is a wonderful man that has been married for many years and has a wife and children and grandchildren and also pastors a church. We also had pastor charlie do counseling for us. We live far away so we did skype sessions. We didn't necessarily think we needed counseling because we thought we were really good at communication and we are both on the same page with everything about life but we really learned a lot from him and there were things that came up with family and stress of wedding planning that he really helped us get through. I think it was great for us to have someone removed from our circle of family, friends, and church, to counsel us because we could really open up and share things and discuss things with him. He really got to know us and you can tell that he is doing this because it's really his heart to counsel people and not a job or for money. He has a lot of wisdom from his own life and wants couples to have the best Godly marriage possible. Our ceremony was beautiful and even though he didn't know us previous to our counseling, he took the time to get to know us and no one at the ceremony would have known we just met him a few months prior. Seemed as if we had known him for years. I would definitely recommend him. Out of all the people I researched in my area I found him to be the best honest, caring christian pastor for our ceremony.
We worked extensively with Pastor Eddie for our premarital counseling. He made us realized that the "engagement" period of a relationship isn't just meant to plan a wedding, it's more importantly meant to plan for your marriage. He equipped us both with the essential tools needed for marriage and for a lifetime of agape love. He covers everything with the couple so you are entering this marriage with no surprises. You review everything from fair fighting, communication, finances, parenting, etc. and how imperative it is to keep God at the center of your life and your marriage. Anyone we talk to who is looking to get engaged or is engaged, we encourage them to definitely do premarital counseling and to contact Pastor Eddie.
Working with Saman for almost 3 years and I have to say that he has blossomed into a great professional. To be honest I was really skeptical if therapy was right for me, seeing as I only met him a year or so into his internship so I wasn't sure if he was able to help me. He is a very patient, compassionate and understanding person who takes this field of work to heart...It's pretty much his calling in life. Fast forward two and a half years later, I've learned ways to cope with my anxiety and have gained the confidence to accomplish my goals in my life.
Third Way Counseling is great! They have been sensitive to my needs (financial and time constraints) and are accommodating in every way.
She was fantastic during the initial phone consultation. A great listener, very calming and reassuring and gave me a detailed run-down of what to look forward in coming sessions. I look forward to her help :)
