It's amazing how one person can go so deep inside you and help you realise so many thing. Ira has done a great job at helping me find myself looking for answer for questions I've had all my life. It's amazing the way Ira looks for God's guidance to be able to help us understand God's plan for our life. He is such a great family counselor. My family feel like it's finally coming back together and for that I am so thankful. Also he is there 24/7 weather it's a phone call or a text he makes you feel secure to know someone is there for whatever sitiation you may be facing with out judging and always helping!
Cristi O'Brien has helped me out with my relationship in numerous ways. She is a great listener and really great at giving advice. I highly recommend her as a therapist for any situations or issues you might have.
My experience with therapist Octavia Fukino has been a positive, healing process for me. Her gentle and honest approach has helped me peel off layers of hurt and become a whole person. I would definitely encourage my family and friends to head her way if they are looking for a therapist.
i worked with Jim ,as a volunteer ,for years in a ministry at mariners church in California . I learned a lot from Jim as I was privileged to have opportunities to be with him as he counseled men and women . It was unbelievable to watch Jim be led by the Holy Spirit as he counseled hard to describe but a wonderful memory . Jim taught so many of us in this ministry to be healthy in our " helping others" Jim had a class where he showed parents how to have tough love with their children that were on drugs. Jim also had the volunteers in his ministry go through a 12 step spiritual journey. Jim had men and women have an amazing chance to be trained by John Townsend and Henry Cloud to be peer counsellors something I would have paid hundreds of dollars to do he brought in gifted professional counsellors to serve as guides for the peer counseling ministry many many hurting people at that church were helped free of charge because of his vision and trainings. I'm thankful for the time I had serving with Jim at Mariners church 9 wonderful years. Thanks to God and u too Jim !!!!
Neicha helped me to relax in my NOW. I felt like I was in a deep relaxation. I thought it was longer than it seemed. I could feel the negative energy flowing out of my body through the crystal healing process and increased feeling of well being. Her space was neat, spacious and had a serene vibe to it. She let me know exactly what she would be doing. I will definitely recommend Neicha to my friends and family.
I had a very enlightening experience with RHIFT! The counselor helped me view personal challenges in order to make the changes necessary for growth and development in my life.
I have been to many marriage therapists and while my marriage unraveled right before Dr. Price, she genuinely cared for both of us and without her I would not have been able to make it through this. Her understanding is coupled with exceptional education and enough heartbreaking experiences in her personal life to truly be both empathetic and guiding. Linda is truly one of the rare councerlors who could save your marriage if gone to soon enough and will help you save yourself and family if too late. I have referred many couples and individuals to her and ALL have sent glowing reports back to me.
So happy I found a therapist that understands what I go through. Dr. Maxine your great 😆
Staff is friendly and helpful. The therapists have a wealth of education and tools to help clients through the healing process. I like that Novus has many different options depending on individual needs.
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!
Lydia is amazingly intuitive, knowledgeable and compassionate therapist. Every time I've referred her clients they have called me to thank me for helping them find her. She's definitely my go to person when someone I know needs a female therapist.
Jennifer has been the best outlet for me and my daily stresses, helping me cope with work, family, and relationship stress. She understands cultural pressures and shows compassion with my issues. She always on time and gives me the full attention of the hour. She is also very flexible with my schedule. I would recommend her to anyone.
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!
Plinio was an amazing instructor. And the Breakthrough Parenting course was spot on. The "One on One" instruction was perfect for me and there was no question, issue, scenario etc. that Plinio couldn't handle. Best prep for a single Dad. Would totally recommend any first time or experienced parent to take the course so you have a better foundation to be a parent and raise a happy, healthy and well adjusted child.
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.

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.
GETTING THE MOST OUT OF THERAPY Whatever your problem, challenge, trauma or pain, the power to change exists within you. I believe an effective therapists job is to support your shift, not to create it for you. Being with clients session after session, I find the persons who have positive movement are the ones who show up every week seeking collaborative solutions and try them out between sessions. Whether youre familiar with the therapy experience, or just hoping to find a place to provide some helpful solutions during a difficult time, I can help you make your desired shifts. Together, we can mutually create a safe space to discover new ways of looking at things and make progress toward your goals and desires.
