Michelle is a warm and inviting person who made me feel comfortable very quickly. She has been a great mentor and helped me overcome many obstacles in the aftermath of a serious life event I experienced. I felt I could be me without any concern for fear of how she may react. I have done traditional therapy but have preferred her holistic approach to combining therapy with a goal oriented approach to solving problems one may be experiencing. I have been able to get to a much better place in my life thanks to her support and the perspective she helps me obtain through self reflection. She encourages you just enough to help you push past your self-set limits without ever feeling like she is pushing you past your boundaries. Somehow, I always get to the realization I need on my own terms but with the help of her encouragement. I love her approach and feel that her respectful manner along with her warm, understanding attitude creates a space for one to really get down to one's core and find one's self in the process. She has truly been a gift to my life.
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.
Alik Segal is a very caring therapist who holds wellbeing of his clients as a priority. He understands complexities that arise when dealing with hardships.
Jaimi is such an intent listener and genuinely cares about the emotional well-being of people- not just her clients, but everyone around her. She is truly patient, thoughtful, gentle with her approach and so insightful- she has helped me tremendously with personal dilemmas and I would refer any close friend or family member to her for therapy.
Therapy never quite made a difference for me in the past, and believe me I really wanted it to. Samanthas approach is so completely different and more personal then anything I experienced before that it has profoundly impacted my life in a way I always wished therapy would have. Unlike others, she helped me understand my life as a whole - and helped me develop a sense of self-compassion I never before realized would be so instrumental in my self-acceptance and self-growth. I learned to appreciate what it really means to be a growing human-being with Samantha and I learned to step back and see the whole picture of my life instead of just chopped up and seperate events. Some are good at making you think they understand you, but with Samantha one feels it. Best of all, she feels like a friend that really relates and not a detached doctor taking suspicious notes that is always at an arms length. I only wish I had met her sooner.
Pastor Jim Gaffney made our wedding day awesome! He was genuine, mindful of our needs and the needs of the guests, and brought God into the ceremony! In addition, premarital counseling with Jim was crucial to our marriage. Jena and I know exactly what we were getting into!!!
• I have been to several therapists in the past and am usually very skeptical of life coaching and therapy When I began phone sessions with Grace, she was able to help me discover what was really at the bottom of my concerns and how I viewed the world. She gave me guidance to start me on a journey of self introspection. Grace very quickly helped me feel that the road to self-development and happiness is a rewarding one in which I have a trustworthy ally. She helped me understand my needs for stability, become successful in my home and personal life and I have become a stronger person because of her. I highly recommend Grace.
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.
Princess trained me for 6 months and I lost about 40 pounds. I call Princess the smiling drill sergeant. If you set goals with her she will make sure you accomplish them but always with a smile on her face. She set up a workout and nutrition regimen for me and patiently pushed me through them. She will not allow you quit. I was coming off an illness that kept me from exercising for a year. Princess knew because she does a thorough intro with her clients. I was very afraid when I started working out but she pushed me while monitoring me to make sure we were not doing anything to harm me. I love training with her and without doubt would recommend her
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.
Dr Starr was very caring. I have never been to therapy before and was quite nervous. Dr Starr made me feel very comfortable. I will definitely be back.
Great therapy sessions and available

I can't express how thankful I am to have met Don / XLr8yourLIFE. I was getting ready to shoot a movie, and the previous trainers I worked with were pretty good, but they didn't exceed my expectations, and I wasn't getting the specific results I needed for the project. I didn't have much time left, but I also didn't want to disappoint my agent/ manager and last but not least, myself. I had be in bikini/ action shape, which means a lot of lean muscle, but not to the point where I look like I'm competing for a competition. Most trainers were pushing me either towards too muscular or not muscular enough. When I found Don, we targeted specific problem areas like my inner thighs, triceps, and gluts. I already had strong abs, so he worked with me to make sure it was cut and sexy, but not intimidating. After a couple weeks, I saw faster and better results than ever. "Better" means he gives you want you need and more. He is very good at gaging your limits, and doesn't let you settle for less than your best. With his fitness & nutrition knowledge, fun personality, and targeted training, he's amazing. I got into incredible shape, and I highly recommend his training for anyone, whether it's general fitness or specific results. I'm looking forward to more sessions. Oh, and my agent loved my results too. :)
Krystal Soles has been exceptional when it comes to communication and flexibility. I am very happy with my experience with her.
